“Fate confronts [us] like an intricate labyrinth all too rich in possibilities, and yet of all these possibilities, only one is [our] own right way.” — CG Jung
Sometimes, when we hear the call of fate, we listen with an inner ear for quiet whispers of the soul. This call arrives in many forms — it can be a traumatic experience or relationship, a feeling of restlessness or depression, a health problem or simply an unexplainable desire to grasp the mystery of life. My consultation practice brings together Jungian analysis with expressive arts therapy. I offer a safe place for you to recognize your unique identity. In our work together, we will follow the varied threads of your story so that you can weave and shape your own destiny. My approach uses both verbal and non-verbal methods, encouraging spontaneity and the healing influence of the imagination. These sensorial processes lead to an aesthetic and spiritual understanding of soul.
While the underlying causes may be unknown, the challenges of life can bring grief, anxiety, and/or depression. I specialize in working with people who are having difficulty meeting personal challenges. I help my clients to realize their potentials and am experienced in working with:
- Relationship Issues
- Midlife crisis
- Personal or professional transitions
- Woman’s fertility issues
- Post abortion or miscarriage healing
Specialization: Expressive Arts Therapy; Jungian Analysis; Drama Therapy; Autobiographic Therapeutic Performance. Methods include active imagination with dreams, Sandplay, painting, drawing, improvisation, theater games, story telling and songwriting.
My academic and professional background is diverse. After conservatory theater training at the East 15 Acting School in London England I spent many years in New York City working as a performer, director, and teacher. Later I earned an interdisciplinary Master’s Degree in Psychology and the Performing Arts with a focus on the Feminine Principle at SUNY/ Empire State College. I am a doctoral candidate in Expressive Arts Therapy at European Graduate School. This broad and rich background informs my analytical training at the CG Jung Institute in Zurich. Currently, a trainee at the Living Arts Counseling Center, I am supervised by Armand Volkas, MFT RDT/BCT (MFC #28789).
