Therapeutic Approaches that Inform my Practice

 

Jungian Psychotherapy

 

According to Jung, our conscious mind is just a tiny fragment of who we really are. At the center of our unconscious psyche is an organizing principle that seeks the realization of our full potential. Jung observed this principle in action in patients’ dreams, and called it “the Self.” Jungian therapy helps the client connect with this powerful inner guide- which is every human being’s best ally in finding genuine healing and spiritual growth.

 

 

 

 

Somatic Psychotherapy


“My belief is in the blood and flesh as being wiser than the intellect. The body-unconscious is where life bubbles up in us. It is how we know that we are alive… to the depths of our souls…”  – D.H. Lawrence

 

In somatic psychotherapy, the client is encouraged to bring attention to their felt sense’- their awareness of physical sensations in the body. Through nurturing this awareness, the client gains access to a first-hand kind of knowing which is impossible to find through thought.

Client-centered Psychotherapy   “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”    Carl Rogers

 

By providing a relationship of unconditional acceptance, empathy, and genuineness, the therapist provides the conditions in which the client’s own natural propensity towards healing and growth is supported.
