Jungian analysis is an opportunity to know and live from our most authentic self. When we do, we connect with the most meaningful aspects of life — joy, compassion, creativity, healthy relatedness, and a deep sense of inner knowing.
Engaging with our unconscious depths through dreamwork, active imagination, shamanic journeying, artmaking and exploration of symbolic meaning attunes us to our potential for growth and transformation.
The therapeutic relationship provides an opportunity to explore feelings that arise in our interactions with others. By exploring these feelings in the safety of the therapeutic alliance, we can begin to heal from wounds and false beliefs that may have been formed when we internalized feelings from our families and other significant relationships.
As we deepen our connection to our true nature, we open to our creativity and expression in the world. Exploring how self-limiting beliefs and patterns may have kept us from realizing and expressing the truth of who we are in the world opens the doorway to a more meaningful life.
As we learn to trust ourselves, our relationships with others become more alive and empowered. We find meaning and connect with our purpose in the world.

The Mystical Exodus in Jungian Perspective
Transforming Trauma and the Wellsprings of Renewal
The Mystical Exodus in Jungian Perspective explores the soul loss that results from personal, collective, and transgenerational trauma and the healing that unfolds through reconnection with the sacred. Personal narratives of disconnection from and reconnection to Jewish collective memory are illuminated by millennia of Jewish mystical wisdom, contemporary Jewish Renewal and feminist theology, and Jungian and trauma theory.
