Jungian Analysis and Analytical Psychology
We explore the inner world and listen to the unconscious. In analysis I take the past into account because your history helps me understand the person you became and how it influences your present life. The intent of this connection to unconscious influences is to develop or rekindle trust in your own inner resources, know your strengths and limitations, and discover the deep geography of your psychological landscape.
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.
We sometimes decide to meet more frequently than once a week or for longer sessions to intensify the work.

Jungian analysis is 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.
