I've been an astrologer since 1975. As a trained therapist, with an M.A. in Clinical Psychology and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology, I've counseled individuals, couples and families, and specialized in counseling clients in the creative arts.
I have a particular fondness for Depth Psychology and Mythic Astrology as well as the incorporation of a soul-centered approach in my astrological consulting work.
The most tragic of our life struggles may seem less tragic and more meaningful when viewed through the layered lens of the arts, the time-honored tales of myth and dreams, the poignant and/or uplifting tones of music, and yes, the exciting theater of one's astrological horoscope. I have a great love for the astrological language, which is the language of myth and story. Whether astrological, or psychological, I respect the coexistence and interplay of both these modes of perceiving psyche. And there are, in fact, many licensed psychotherapists, worldwide who share my views.
Do references to my astrological consulting work seem ungrounded? Is an astrological consultation psychotherapy? Of course not. Then what might an astrological analysis reveal? Through exploration of one's horoscope psychological patterns, strengths, and concerns become identified. Then, within an ongoing process of psychotherapy issues that run the gamut from trauma to crisis intervention, family and marital concerns, treatment of anxiety, depression, and most other areas of personal and interpersonal conflict may be explored and often healed.
Psyche has never spoken to and through me so profoundly as when I began to sculpt almost six years ago. As an adjunct to more traditional methods of psychotherapy, I encourage my patients to engage in forms of relaxation, yoga, meditation, music and art therapy, and community volunteering.
Please feel free to call me. An initial telephone call not only provides a time for questions, and sets the tone for a more in-depth initial visit, but also helps to establish the absence or presence of personal chemistry.
