Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work with adults needing help with relational issues and I am particularly looking to reach those clients who may be underserved in other therapeutic settings. I welcome artists; Burning Man attendees; people in the BDSM and Open Relationship communities; gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender clients; and individuals, couples, and other relationship groupings. I am BDSM and open relationship knowledgeable. I offer expertise in communication, polyamory, and open relationships from a Jungian point of view. I help couples decide if they are coming in for relationship counseling or relationship canceling. I am interested in exploring new archetypes for masculinity and femininity. I support people creating rites of passage in their own lives: emerging from the family as a differentiated individual, the transition into parenthood, the beginning or ending of a relationship whether by choice or circumstance, finding a vocation that they enjoy and that energizes them. Coming from a Jungian background having attended Pacifica Graduate Institute, I enjoy working with archetypes, Shadow, dream material, play therapy for adults, and working through past experiences for present benefit.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
