My work is focused on making the unconscious conscious and helping people become more integrated. In simple terms this means that healing can come from linking thinking with feelings, inner with outer, past with present, beliefs with behaviors and emotions, fantasy and reality, waking states and dream states. This is particularly important with patients who have suffered trauma or abuse of various kinds or who are extremely sensitive.
