Some further words...
Since you are considering psychotherapy as an individual or couple, there are many choices before you. You will have certain expectations for a potential therapist. You will want to find someone you feel is a “good fit.” I believe you would best know this in experiencing an actual session with a potential therapist. The following,however, may be helpful in providing a bridge to my work.
I am a certified Jungian analyst and licensed Marriage Family Therapist. I work from a depth perspective in both my individual and couples work. Unlike many popular and pragmatic oriented approaches, a depth approach also includes attention to unconscious processes. Adjusting, even changing, the ego orientation is most often not enough. Hence the attention to dreams, day dreams, symptoms, intuitions and experiences on the margins of our existence. A depth approach attempts to provide lasting changes by addressing underlying sources of change and healing.
As an ordained Episcopal priest, I also honor your particular religious tradition and spiritual quest.
I have also been the provost and faculty of a graduate school in depth psychology for some 18 years - Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara. I am a member of the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco and International Association Analytical Psychologists and California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and a Research Psychoanalyst with the California Medical Board. While these are external credentials, they reflect my years of inner searching and education that I bring to my work as a depth psychotherapist and Jungian analyst.
It's my desire, and vocation, to help you discover the resources, inner and outer, that are available to you on your unique journey.
Perhaps, for whatever reasons, you are now ready to tell your story.
If so, I'm ready to hear it.
