"As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being."

In terms of credentials, I am a certified (IAAP) Jungian Analyst with over twenty years of combined clinical and counseling experience.

In addition to my private practice, I am a Training Analyst, past President, and current Executive Director of the C. G. Jung Study Center of Southern California, one of only a dozen Jungian analyst training programs in North America, under the auspices of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP), based in Zurich.
I have taught extensively at the Study Center, focused primarily on Jung's Collected Works and those closest to him, including Marie-Louis von Franz, Edward Edinger, Barbarah Hannah, Esther Harding and Erich Neumann. I have presented at many state and national seminars and facilitated experiential workshops in such diverse areas as Surviving a Mid-Life Crises, Dream Interpretation, and Medieval Mysticism.
