Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”

Dr. Melanie Higgins

Healing means recognizing when we are stuck, and acknowledging at this moment we are presented with a choice: we can remain immobile or we can open ourselves to potential change. Recognizing and working through our woundedness and our pain can free essential life energy and can often unveil personal meaning and purpose in life.

I have been working as a psychologist and Jungian analyst for the last 25 years in Germany and am fluent in German.  Offering primarily therapeutic and analytic processes to adults, couples and to adolescents who have come into my practice with such issues as: depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, developmental life crises, and related “stuck” situations, I have come to realize that a central concentration in my work has been the shared therapeutic relationship. The relationship between the client and the therapist contributes to a facilitating and containing environment, which can free the client to search for individual truths and ultimately discover a home ‘inside’. The client often ‘awakens’ to past sources of present problems and discovers clear ‘visions’ for the future.
