Coach & Mentor

 

Manifesting Your Vision

You’re ready to manifest your vision, to achieve your goals, and to deeply connect to your wholeness. And for many of you it’s time to tap into an authentic leadership that’s warm and true.

As a coach and mentor, I help you generate authentic personal growth in your life and work.

Let’s say you’re looking for authentic, strategic, and useful support and guidance through a challenging life or work situation, or you’re simply ready to move in a new direction. Let’s say your work has lost its luster. The image you’ve had of your life no longer reflects your needs and desires. Perhaps you want to deepen a relationship or to move from striving to thriving.

As your coach and mentor, I can meet you here, at this crossroads.

I will help you ready yourself for change and growth. We would begin with everything that’s positive, constructive, and working for you, your job, and love life.  We’ll explore your sense of self. as you see the patterns that may be holding you back. But really, the idea is to dream forward and explore your possibilities, unearth your potentials, and solve practical problems.

This work is quite different from psychotherapy.

We will spend more time looking forward than delving into your past. Just how will you handle a tricky situation or negotiation? What’s going on at home that’s leaving you feeling undernourished. Is your personal sense of leadership your growing edge?  How can you truly become an agent of change?

 

The connection to your own depths.

Your true self is always there despite your connection to her being weakened or broken. The wholeness. Are you dreaming ideas and organizations forward? How can you truly become an agent of change?  We’ll tap into your dreams, fantasies, and imagination to find answers, ideas, and doorways that you haven’t been able to access through your conscious mind. The work is deep, profound, and powerful. It is woven into problem-solving that is also strategic, practical, and tactical. While I am serving you as a coach and guide, you will be at the wheel and bringing your own sense of yourself – whether revealed to you or not – to the process.

“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you really are.”

—C.G. Jung

Depth Psychology

Your creative instinct: the underlying focus of our work together.

Your creative instinct and its impulse are the focus of our work together. My experience with depth-oriented psychology uniquely qualifies me to work with you on deep psychological issues.

This background allows me to serve as a companion to you on an inward journey into your psyche’s intention for your life. Together, we can awaken you to the mystery of your true self, the you that feels settled in authenticity. From there, your psyche leads organically to a life that honors the truth of your being and naturally directs you toward living fully in the ways that fulfill your inner intention. While there’s no changing the past, it’s still not too late to live a happy childhood! In the course of attending to your present inner world, childhood and other past issues clarify and dissolve.

Working together to center on your strengths.

In the present, you and I can work together to uncover meaning in your life right now by centering on the core wholeness that is your strength. Your primary task is to forge a stronger ongoing connection to it. I will accompany you as you wend your way into a future that has been waiting for you.

Whatever may obstruct your way becomes not a problem to solve but a mystery to be lived. Your psyche will guide you to transit these passages. By engaging with your psychological experience and a variety of creative processes, complementary approaches, and techniques. You and I will unearth behavior patterns or negative perceptions that likely are holding you back from creating the fulfilling and meaningful life you desire. Your psyche actually knows what this is!

My work arises from the genius of Carl Jung.

He was a far-seeing Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who emerged during the Victorian era. His brilliance has led us to understand that powerful forces exist within the psyche. He identified them as archetypes, and they not only affect you, but all of humanity, as well. Jung proposed that archetypes, or universal themes, generate and shape our perspectives, emotions, and behavior. They influence events both positively and negatively, while they offer us treasures, in terms of deep meaning and clues to life’s purpose and unfolding.

I also owe a debt of gratitude to Russell Lockhart, PhD, my longtime colleague, friend, and mentor. As a Jungian analyst, writer, editor, and publisher, he has guided me along every pathway in my work.
