Adult Psychotherapy

Jungian therapy diverged from Freudian therapy when Jung broke from Freud early last century. Jung emphasized the prospective meaning of symbols in dreams. Jungian therapy gives less weight to (but does not deny) repressed sexuality. It considers obstacles to prospective striving to be as important as childhood conflicts. Jungian therapy or analysis is face-to-face, includes dream analysis if the pacient choses to do so and tries to build a coherent dialogue between consciousness and the unconscious. Dreams, fairytales, myths and religious symbolism helps us better understand to unconscious impulses and our present behaviour.

Child Psychotherapy

I work with children between the ages of 4-12 and I also see adolescents. Reasons why parents seek therapy for their child can be: school and learning problems, PTSD, insecure attachments, abandonment trauma, anxiety,addictions, sleep, oppositional-defiant, and relational disorders. Another important aspect of children’s psychology are family situations like: adoptions, parental separation, divorce, dreams, nightmares, neglect and abuse. The methods used in working with children include sandplay and play therapy (drawing, story telling, projective play etc). When working with minors, I always work closely with the family, involving parents in the child's treatment.

Couple Therapy

Couple therapy in Jungian approach is not meant to be made on a long term because it focuses more on mirroring the dysfunctional patterns in each individual and a better understanding why the relationship is no longer functioning. Once both couple partners understand what is happening within their relationship, the therapist together with them can move to building new frames and work towards the established goal of the couple. Most of the times, improving communication patterns solves many of life’s problems, also exploring and underlying psychodynamic issues of the couple can lead to a better understanding of each other. Being understood by your partner and also understand urself means being opened to work with complicated hidden emotional patterns and parental complexes from one’s family of origin.

Respecting the confidentiality is one of the most important aspects of psychoterapy. What we discuss within the therapy sessions remains strictly between me and my pacients. Legally and ethically I am prohibited from sharing what you tell me or disclose your identity. There are three exceptions to confidentiality that rarely come up and apply to extreme situations where you are going to act on planning to hurt yourself or others, as well as situations involving child abuse or elder abuse.
