There are times in our lives when we can’t figure out what to do or how to get the support we need, even with the help of family and friends. Maybe we continue to have difficulties in relationships or have wrestled with anxiety, grief and depression for too long. That is when we seek professional help. I have been working as a Jungian psychoanalyst for 35 years helping individual adults find there way out of darkness, fear, and confusion, or just wanting to become a more complete person and find a path with meaning in their lives. Dream analysis is my favorite therapeutic modality – those nightly storylines that dramatize the issues we are wrestling with and occasionally give us a picture of our essence and a vision for our future. I do both brief and long term therapy including 6-8 EAP sessions. I incorporate elements of brief therapy from 12 years of training plus aspects of CBT. As an ecopsychologist I am particularly interested in using dreams and other means of connecting people to nature as part of their growth and healing. Over 30 years of participation in Native American ceremonies have informed my way of working with the psyche in relation to the land. For more information, see my website EcoJung.com for essays and articles I have written on these topics. Remember, in searching for a therapist, in the end it is the chemistry, the unique relationship between client and therapist, that is the biggest factor for success in therapy.
