“My therapeutic approach is guided by Jung’s crucial discovery that unlived life and the loss of meaning are often at the root of psychological and spiritual suffering. Our dreams, fantasies, spiritual longings and symptoms symbolically express this reality. Understanding the meaning of these products of our inner world can dramatically alleviate suffering and make possible a larger, more creative and spiritually satisfying life. After decades of practice, I now know that the compassionate care of suffering coupled with symbolic understanding in a warm, collaborative dialogue is the only way to treat the whole person.”
