Jungian Analysis and Analytical Psychology
In Jungian analysis we explore the inner world and listen to the unconscious. We also pay attention to health, relationships, occupation, time of life, personal history, how you think and behave, and emotions. Though analysis takes the past into account, its intent is to become aware of what is guiding how you live your life and develop or rekindle trust in your own inner resources, your strengths and limitations, and the deep geography of your psychological landscape. Jungian psychoanalysis encourages psychological growth and change.
In analysis, we increase awareness of how unconscious processes express themselves in conscious life. Dreams are often central and I usually ask that you keep a dream journal. Focusing on remembering dreams can encourage dream recall. However, there are many other ways that we access unconscious processes: via fantasies, stories, creative projects, repeating patterns, emotions, physical symptoms, body sensations, and thoughts. Engaging the unconscious can release new creative energies. Relationships can become more fulfilling.

Jungian analysis is a method of psychotherapy grounded in the works of Carl Gustav Jung. Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist, professor, and researcher who died in 1961 in his eighties. His psychological discoveries were born out of a long and protracted experience with his own unconscious, followed by lifelong research and scholarship. From Jung's psychological point of view consciousness is but a small island supported by the vast sea of the unconscious. He discovered through his confrontation of the unconscious and his intense studies of alchemy, religions, and myths a web of universal collective supportive psychological structures or archetypes.
