I primarily use a psychodynamic approach and am influenced by psychologist C.G. Jung, who believed that when human life is in balance, the conscious mind and unconscious live in harmonious relationship.
When we ignore our inner world, as most of us do, the unconscious will find a way into our lives through:
- Difficulties in relationships
- Unresolved Childhood Issues
- Psychosomatic Symptoms
Together, we will focus on your unconscious, unprocessed material by looking at your inner world of dreams, fantasies, and imagination. This will offer you more insight, knowledge, and awareness of yourself and provide you freedom from your symptoms. In my experience, by creating this mindfulness, it will reveal your special individuality and help you feel more complete. I also integrate psychoanalytical theories that recognize how childhood experiences shape personality and behaviors, particularly the relationship with our primary caretakers.
I believe in honoring the individual and your uniqueness, therefore I specialize my approach to your needs as I get a deeper awareness of you. Depending on your needs, I also blend into our work dream analysis, meditation, breath work, mind/body awareness, active imagination, art, play, and sand tray therapies.
