One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however, is disagreeable and therefore not popular.
— C. G. Jung, CW 13, para. 335.

As a psychotherapist I work with people who experience symptoms or feelings of:

  • Depression
  • General Anxiety, PTSD, Social Anxiety, Dissociation
  • Loss and Grief of any kind
  • Low self-esteem, self-worth, or self-confidence issues
  • Unfulfilling and / or continually difficult intimate relationships
  • A need for coaching or support  — as in beginning or ending school, moving, new job or job loss, loss of relationship, career concerns
  • Mid-life difficulty
  • Issues repeating, returning in more difficult forms. Stressors of all kinds
  • Adult children of self-centered parents or current or former partners / spouse (narcissism) with self-absorbed traits
  • Issues in the Third Phase of Life

Overlapping issues or issues not falling neatly into categories.

  • Possibility and grace in midlife crises
  • A more authentic, fulfilled life
  • Living in the present rather than in the future or the past
  • Support as you explore what is trying to get your attention.
  • Inner issues linked to body issues.
