I am a Jungian psychotherapist with 35 years of experience doing therapy. In the early years of my career, I worked with schools and with children, especially young children. Along the way, I got training in working with pregnancy and post partum issues, parenting, and working with groups. But the deep love of my work life has been working with men and women in individual psychotherapy.
Twenty years ago, I embarked on a personal Jungian analysis. The work I did with the analysts I saw was perhaps the most significant learning of my adult life and served to intensify my interest in depth psychology.
My doctorate is in Jungian Studies. My work is grounded in the depth psychology of C.G. Jung.
I have a private practice in mid-coast Maine working with adults, both individually and in groups. I have an office in my home in Belfast, Maine. In addition, I work by telephone and/or by email for those who do not live nearby If you are interested in learning more about Jungian psychotherapy and working with me, please email me.
