Philosophy & Approach

Only what is truly oneself has the power to heal ~ CG Jung

Life invites us to affirm meaning in our individual existence & find our place and purpose in the world. The goal is personal wholeness, not perfection.

My job is to help individuals cultivate awareness and learn to apply it in life. The individual’s soul guides all process work. Learning how to reflect, to take care of oneself — to listen to soul — is the foundation for a healthy, meaningful life. Experiencing vibrancy of life in practice is essential. Theory can provide some support.

CG Jung’s Analytical Psychology affirms the significance of the unconscious in development as in life. Jung’s approach reveals & relates symbols of wholeness within our lives through dreams and complex life situations. Even symptoms of trauma and suffering also represent profound transformational potential, when respected.

Relationship dynamics are at the heart of most conflicts with work, family, friend, lover, & oneself. They are both sources of suffering as well as of healing. Each can hold opportunities and meaning for our development.

Most human challenges are universal - archetypal. Solutions, however, are both personal and unique. In facing our struggles with courage and humility, we gain insight and greater personal integrity. In this way, we learn to appreciate and accept limits. We thus nurture attitudes & behavior to help us thrive, not merely survive.

Success is measured through results. Effective process work is both practical & felt. This allows the everyday sacred to resonate and be reflected in our lives. Thus, we grow as individuals and embody deeper purpose, realizing our potential in more fully being human.
