Clients usually have an interest in the symbolic, the creative, and the transverbal approaches to personal wellness and healing. They may see therapy as a call to adventure and inner exploration. "Disasters catapult people into experiences beyond ordinary reality. Although there are many ways to initiate a heroic journey, the call to adventure usually comes unexpectedly." --Gita Morena, The Wisdom of Oz: Reflections of a Jungian Sandplay Therapist
I offer Sandplay Therapy in the spirit of Swiss psychoanalysts Carl Jung and Dora Kalff. As a multidimensional tool, Sandplay facilitates meaning-making through vivid construction of an imaginal world using archetypal symbols and materials. Sandplay can help a client heal old wounds and access the deepest layers of consciousness.
I am a Licensed Soto Zen Buddhist Lay Minister. Awareness practices to reduce compulsive thoughts, habits, and distortions to experience the fullness of reality just as it is through all-acceptance and the cultivation of unshakable liberation of mind.
Images open a door into psyche and reveal more than words alone, often offering up their own solutions to a client's dilemma. As Mary Watkins writes, 'the image in its specificity lends us the imaginal background to each experience, thus raising the day world onto the plane of metaphorical meanings...[becoming] an eye through which one perceives and senses.'
