Depth Psychotherapy Devoted To Emotional and Spiritual Healing

My holistic depth psychotherapy practice, based in Albuquerque New Mexico, is devoted to personal and relational healing and growth through therapeutic emotional understanding and dream work. We engage in depth psychotherapy for painful emotions, conflicted relationships, and troubling dreams. Deep-seated wounds can appear immovable, resulting in ongoing unhappiness and a feeling of being stuck and going nowhere in life. As a depth psychologist for over thirty years, I have been helping people work through and resolve emotional and relational problems so as to potentially achieve a more optimal life and lifestyle. We work together on an open-ended basis for as long as depth therapy is healing, helpful, and meaningful. Professional Associations: Depth Psychology Alliance, International Association of Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, International Association for Jungian Studies.

 

Solitude and Quality of Life...

Solitude and quality of life form a complex matrix of meaning that includes having nourishing relationships and excludes relationships that detract from who we are as individuals, our essential solitude, and who we are as loving beings.

C.G. Jung wrote, "Solitude is for me a font of healing which makes my life worth living." Life being worth the living goes further than doing this or that with these or those people. In fact, too much contact with others, especially in order to while away time with idle socializing, detracts from self and quality of life.

Fear of growth, ongoing consciousness, often stems from a terror of isolation. To distinguish oneself in terms of interests, perspective, and mentality takes us apart from the group. We fear being different from everyone else. Embracing our capacity for solitude takes us into a depth of relationship with self and also, however surprising, into an increased capacity to nourish healthy relationships and personal lovingness.

"My head spins with too much to do and too many people in my life," exclaimed an anxiety-ridden soul. Dreams of fogginess and "people, people everywhere, so that I couldn't breathe. They were sucking up all the air" abounded for this individual. Quality of life had been compromised. Spirit, air, had been siphoned off. A return to the essential solitude of the self, to include nurturing relationships, was needed in order to rediscover a replenishing spirit and quality of life.
