“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being. It may even be assumed that just as the unconscious affects us, so the increase in our consciousness affects the unconscious.” (Jung, Memories, Dreams Reflections, p. 326)
I am a certified (IAAP) Jungian analyst/psychotherapist with over twenty-five years of combined clinical and counseling experience. I am licensed as a Research Psychoanalyst (California license # RP 227) and maintain a private practice in both Culver City and Whittier, California.
In addition to my private practice, I am Co-Director of Training and an Instructor at the C. G. Jung Study Center of Southern California based in Culver City. I have written several articles and lectured and facilitated workshops locally and nationally on Medieval Mysticism, Dream Interpretation, The Psychology of a Mid-Life Crisis, and Psychological Types.
I am practical, solution-focused therapist, whose approach is to help clients effectively address their personal life challenges and build on their existing strengths to attain the personal growth they are seeking.
