Jungian and Archetypal Pattern Analyst
Like the pieces on a chess board, we play the game of life according to patterns. A novice chess player can hold about 6 moves in advance, while a Chess Master can hold as many as 20. While not proscriptive, archetypal pattern analysis can be predictive. An archetypal pattern analysis can read and translate the unfolding pattern of a life, a business, a creative endeavour, or a relationship. Whether in the therapeutic milieu as a Jungian Analyst or registered psychotherapist, or in mentoring or consulting, a translation of the pattern embed in behaviour can help to realign energies and produce more generative results.
master Dream Pattern Analyst
There is much that passes for dream interpretation in the current Spirit of the Times. Jung and his contemporaries were more interested in the Spirit of the Depths. Dreams are to the individual what fairy tales are to the collective, or myths are to an epoch. Knowing what and who is dreaming us is key. At the heart of every dream is the systolic and dystolic beating of the archetype. Like plaque or cholesterol, the complexes or the subjective lens often impede the movement of objective truth and archetypal energy. The archetypes are nature and like nature, they are self regulatory, self organizing and ever striving to manifest fully in a life. Dreams show us the map, and archetypal dream pattern analysis invites us into the adventure of the unexplored territory.
Jungian Analyst, writer, Teacher, Mentor
Words, nature, dreams, and story are sacred texts. They inscribe and articulate the pattern and the meaning of our lives. As a literature teacher and a Jungian analyst for close to 40 years, my professional experience is vast and varied. My personal passions include writer, iconographer, grandmother and steward of our 100acre woods. I am a former Training analyst and faculty member with the C. G. Jung Institute, Zurich, Director of Studies, Fairy Tale Certification Course Developer, faculty with The Assisi Institute, and Managing Editor of The Assisi Journal. I trained extensively with tribal Elders and I am initiated in indigenous teachings and traditions; namely, Mohawk, Annisaabe, and Zimbabwe.
PRIVATE PRAXIS, INTERNATIONAL
I am a sole proprietor offering psychotherapy and Jungian analysis both locally and internationally. I have clients from 10 provinces and 10 countries. Because of COVID restrictions, I currently see clients on line and my praxis averages 27-30 hours per week. My youngest client is 24 and my oldest 88. Generally the work is long term and I set a weekly frame for analysis. I also serve as a supervisor. My praxis includes clients presenting with trauma, depression, anxiety, LBGTQ2 issues, relationship issues, somatic concerns, midlife orientation, career and developmental milestones, intergenerational patterns, and spiritual guidance.
“At times I feel as if I am spread out over the landscape and inside things, and am myself living in every tree, in the splashing of the waves, in the clouds and the animals that come and go, in the procession of the seasons.”
― Carl G. Jung
"When Mother Trees — the majestic hubs at the center of forest communication, protection and sentience — die, they pass their wisdom to their kin, generation after generation, sharing the knowledge of what helps and what harms, who is friend or foe, and how to adapt and survive in an ever-changing landscape. It’s what all parents do.”
