Our Approach

Although our approach is tailored to meet our client’s specific needs we are steeped in the tradition of Depth Psychology. Depth psychology is devoted to looking below the surface of our lives. Curiosity about this inner world is what drew Freud and Jung--and many modern psychotherapists--to their work. We gain access to these depths in ourselves when we stop to ponder our lives. We may be prompted to do this by having an interesting and unexpected dream, or we may think of someone just as they call. We may have been moved by a moment of deep communion with nature, art or another person or sometimes we are even drawn to consider our inner world as a result of pain, disappointment, or illness.

In whatever way we come to take this step of inner exploration, through this process we can catch a glimpse of a layer of our lives that we often take for granted. There is great wisdom in these depths. Taking the time to open ourselves to this level of experience can lead to a strong sense of peace and we come to know that we are leading the life we were meant to live.
