Creative Counseling

If you’ve landed here I would love to chat with you. Please contact me to discuss your needs and/or to schedule a session. Rooted in an ongoing study of James Hillman’s archetypal psychology and the extensive work of C.G. Jung, my practice brings the attitude, methodology, and tools of the artist-musician to psychotherapy. Because of my vocation in the arts, and my training in depth psychology, I understand psycho-therapy traditionally, in the manner of ancient Greeks, to mean “care of the soul,” or “care of soul’s creative process.”

I work with individuals, couples, families, schools, businesses and non-profit organizations, identifying psyche’s expressions in daily life, and creating rituals to tend these images. For more information about my music-meets-depth psychology research, and a feel for this heart-centered approach, please explore three papers: “Depth Musicology,” “Feeling Function Education,” and “The Music Lesson,” as well as the References page—all located in the Depth Musicology section of this website. Each piece offers introductions to different aspects of Jung and Hillman’s work, and shows how creative instruments of the artist-musician can insight the work of the depth psychologist.
