Calligraphy_Lotus.svg.hiWorking primarily from a depth perspective, I guide people in uncovering and sorting through the emotions that lie beneath the surface of the mind deep within the unconscious. Through dream analysis, active imagination, and creative expression, feelings and thoughts can be identified and brought up into awareness allowing for the reduction of uncomfortable symptoms, an improvement in relationships and the development of a clearer and more dedicated connection to one’s inner wisdom.

In sessions, I provide a welcoming, respectful, non-judgmental atmosphere and take a collaborative approach tailoring the work to your individual needs. In this confidential and private environment, I create a safe, nurturing space for us to explore your inner struggles, regrets, passions, fears, and desires.

For the first half of my life, I worked in the entertainment businesses with a wide variety of designers, artists, producers and directors. My interest in storytelling, mythology, faerie tales and legends informed my career and led me to the work of Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist who discovered the mysteries of creative expression and living an authentic life.

My office is in Studio City, CA, but I also do Skype and phone sessions for individuals living in outlying areas.
