Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a Jungian oriented therapist, I view symptoms such as anxiety and depression not as faults, but as afflictions that can lead us to a more authentic relationship with ourselves and with others. Although symptoms are painful, when carefully worked through, they lead to personal growth, wisdom, and spiritual insight. With this, I approach each individual as a unique being, with differing struggles and perspectives, and I avoid categorizations such as "normal" and "abnormal". Through compassionate listening and reflection, my approach will help you discover a fuller and more meaningful life. I have a PhD in depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and have been a licensed psychotherapist for over ten years. I focus on dreams, active imagination, and non-verbal creative expression as a means for uncovering valuable unconscious material. In addition to my practice, I teach courses in counseling and psychology. I am an Associate Professor of counseling at California State University and teach a variety of courses at Pacifica Graduate Institute. I am also a guide for wilderness rites of pasasge with the School of Lost Borders
