FAQs

What kind of therapy do you do?

Psychodynamic, Jungian, somatic, attachment and affective neurobiology form the foundation of my training.  I work with people and their relationships with themselves and others.  Many times I use traditional talk therapy, other times I use talk therapy and a psychologically oriented form of qigong called Archetypal Qigong (AQ).  AQ helps people move through emotional, psychological and spiritual challenges.  It supplements talking with movement.  AQ is also a great means of alleviating symptoms without the use of pharmaceutical drugs.

I talk and talk and talk and nothing ever happens.  Why?

Although talking alone can in many cases be curative, it can also lead to repetitive stories and unproductive conversations.  That is when Archetypal Qigong can be really effective.  AQ helps relieve symptoms while offering a deeper transformation of their origin.  Understanding and changing the psyche is more possible when the body is recruited to help.

I don’t think 12 sessions is enough, do you?

Some problems resolve relatively quickly, others take longer.  We are not mechanical beings and one size does not fit all.  If a thought pattern, issue, or feeling has been with you for a while it may take more than 12 sessions to resolve.  Some components in the psyche need to be approached gently and unraveled slowly.  We will find the right length of therapy for you.  There is no limit to the number of sessions.

 

“The main interest of my work is not concerned with the treatment of neuroses but rather with the approach to the numinous. But the fact that the approach to the numinous is the real therapy, and inasmuch as you attain to the numinous experience you are released from the curse of pathology. Even the very disease takes on a numinous character.”

-C.G. Jung
