Psychotherapy is a process that offers a person an opportunity for self discovery and a means through which important internal and external changes can be made. Some people seek psychotherapy because they are experiencing emotional pain and need relief. Others engage in the process because they are seeking greater meaning in their lives or they want to reach new levels in their development. Whatever the particular reason is, in most cases, people are seeking some sort of transformation, which is a very normal, healthy and impotant thing to do.

I practice analytical psychology, which means that I focus on both conscious and unconscious processes, particularly dreams, to help people identify root causes of problems and make meaningful, lasting changes. This process, which is deeply personal and ultimately spiritual in nature, often leads to new and better ways of relating to oneself and the world, and a greater sense of wholeness.

I view psychological work as one of the greatest of adventures that one can have because it can transform a person in important ways that other experiences often cannot.
