"The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are"~ C.G. Jung.
Life is about relationships and we know they can sometimes be complicated to navigate when we do not feel whole. If you are experiencing personal conflict, trauma, or you have experienced significant changes or impactful transitions in your life, I am available to help you navigate those internal dynamics. I have a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology and I am currently finishing my Doctorate in Depth-Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. My emphasis is Psychoanalysis/Jungian Psychology, but I have nearly a decade of training in evidence based therapies that are effective in treating a wide range of problems.
In addition I hold a board certifications as a PTSD-Clinician and in Psychological First-Aid. I work with all ages suffering from childhood trauma to single incident trauma events. I have extensive experience of both working in the fields of aviation and law enforcement, as well as treating individuals who are employed in the high-stress fields of professional aviation or law enforcement. I have 15 years of experience in carrier aviation and work extensively with the California Highway Patrol doing Critical Incident Stress Management.
Trauma offers the opportunity for emergence; not only as a reminder of suffering. Together we can work to transform the experience suffering into rebirth of your authentic self. Whether it is with Jungian-oriented psychoanalysis or short-term therapy, like EMDR, we can move a suffering of soul towards deeper meaning. Please call for a complimentary consultation.
