Jungian Therapy

Untitled-1Jungian Therapy

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. Carl Jung

There are those who find their lives harder than they think they need to be, those whose lives have taken an unexpected turn causing grief, uncertainty and sadness. My job is too interpret the ways your choices, feelings and other factors serve in your life, help you decide if they still serve, and promote positive change in collaboration with you. As a Jungian therapist, I believe we are interconnected with something larger than ourselves, and seeking that connection, facing the challenges in day to day living will brings about a lasting change in our lives. We will work together to find the right way for you.

Named for Carl G. Jung, Jungian therapy (also called Depth or Transpersonal) is one model among many illustrating the way we think about mental health. Jungian therapy can take many forms, including wilderness and artistic applications. Like Jung, I believe in the subconscious making its desires known, its needs paramount in our lives and its ways understandable through work and reflection. I am interested in facilitating opportunities for interconnectedness and Mitakuye Oyasin, “we are all one.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitakuye_Oyasin) Let’s go outside and explore how a relationship with nature can facilitate relationships with the people in our lives.

I am not a Jungian Analyst. Analysts work for many years in research and training to claim the title. However, my work in researching the subconscious through dreams, art, music and conversation has proven to be a positive model of change for my clients and in my life as well. My particular specialty is in understanding the archetypes of personality and working with dreams. During session, I will invite you and support your journey through sadness, fear, anxiety and we will find the change you are seeking to bring to your life.
