I'm a Swiss-trained Jungian Analyst (www.jungiananalystvt.com). I view the analytic encounter as a deep and soulful collaboration within which we examine the origins, patterns and futility of disruptive unconscious complexes and behaviors while working to strengthen the soul's authentic, meaning-making, imaginative capability - what James Hillman termed the "poetic basis of mind". To facilitate this process, I aspire to create an environment of trust and confidence in which we engage the psyche, where one's inner world of thoughts, feelings, images, fantasies & dreams can be fully expressed, explored and reflected upon with compassion & without judgment. Although I have considerable experience with a broad range of issues, I have particular expertise in dream work, creative and artistic struggles, relational dynamics, divorce; personal, vocational, sexual or spiritual identity issues, life transitions, self-esteem fluctuations, depression; & an experience of life seeming to lack depth, meaning, intimacy, or community. To be sure, exploring one's inner life can be difficult and the journey long, but with patience, perseverance and gentle encouragement, the effort can lead to wider consciousness, a renewed sense of personal meaning and greater wisdom. Subsequently, maturation of the personality quickens, mental health improves & psychological suffering diminishes.
