psychological work is a growth-oriented approach in which your strengths
provide the foundation for building a more satisfying, meaningful life.
We explore and integrate information from your conscious experience and
from your dreams, fantasies, relationship concerns, and troubling
physical conditions. The length of treatment depends on the issues you
are working on. As mentioned earlier, counseling may take care of some
concerns in a few sessions while psychotherapy takes longer, and
analysis can continue for two or more years. It all depends on what you
need to work on and when you realize that you have done as much as you
Psychological and spiritual work from a Jungian perspective is a journey of self-discovery. What you experience in waking life and in your dreams and fantasies, as well as the ways you and I react to it, is the raw stuff we deal with together. Your undiscovered self sets the goal and charts the direction. On this journey of discovery, we explore your (often unconscious) patterns, motivations, and goals that inform your conscious attitudes, actions, and reactions.
The nature of the psyche and your specific mix of human traits and conditioning hinder or further the actualization of your in-born urge for fulfillment. The conditioning you have experienced, and the minor and major traumas you have sustained, have shaped you in ways that often obstruct your actualizing your innate spiritual potential To repair the damage you have suffered; discover and deal with what lies beneath the surface of your consciousness; and continue your journey of personal growth, actualization, and spiritual maturation on this planet takes time, courage, and trust.
Confidentiality is crucial
in the work we do. You need to know and rest assured that I will hold what you
tell me in strict confidence. Whatever you discuss with me, I will protect by
uncompromising standards of privacy and confidentiality. The only exceptions
include specific areas for which there are specific legal mandates to report
information to the appropriate authorities (such as threats to human life and
sexual abuse of minors), and appropriate and/or legally required consultation
Frequency of sessions, continuity, and cancellations establish part of the structure for our psychological and spiritual work together. I work on a minimum frequency of one session per week. Each session is one hour (sixty minutes) long. To maximize the effectiveness of the therapeutic process, we have to maintain continuity: your commitment to the agreed-upon frequency needs to be consistent. If you must cancel, I request 24-hour notice; otherwise I will bill you for the missed session.
Payment is another important issue. I request out-of-pocket fee-payment at the time of the session. This includes fees for service (in the absence of insurance coverage), and deductible amounts.
Conclusion of treatment optimally comes when you and I have worked through the issues of concern to you, and mutually agree that we have gone as far as we need to or can. Some behaviors or situations that seriously disrupt and undermine the conditions which I consider indispensable for effective therapeutic work may require that I discontinue your treatment. These behaviors include – but are not limited to – the following: the use of any weapons or substances to threaten or endanger your life, that of another person, or me; or the willful breach of any therapeutic contract we make, insofar as such a breach may seriously undermine the therapeutic relationship.
