I have been a psychotherapist for 6 years now, working in a community mental health, with a small private practice. I work with children, teens, single adults, couples and families, and I do that while complying with the clinical focus, or ‘evidenced based’ methods, mandated by government and third-party reimbursers…family systems, cognitive-behavioral methods, the neurobiology of trauma and it’s aftermath, along with developmental considerations. These all have their place in my work, as I seek to ease the suffering of people cut-off from a comfortable connection with life.
Hillman though, has always beckoned with is maverick, literary, imaginal, and mythopoetic approach. Along with Freud and C.G. Jung, and all those that have followed in the traditions of psychoanalysis, and Jungian analysis, Hillman has helped me navigate the deeper world of the Unconscious, the place of art, dreams, and imagination.
