(C. G. Jung. Memories, Dreams, Reflections. Prologue)
Jungian analysis is based on the psychology of Dr. Carl Jung, the Swiss psychologist. In analysis the person seeking help or healing or growth works together with the analyst in listening and being attentive to what the unconscious presents via dreams, reactions to every day encounters, relationships, fantasies, memories, depressive feelings, anxieties, whatever life brings.
The analyst and client look for and listen to deeper sources of understanding oneself, one’s motives, what might be blocking potential or keeping the person stuck or sad or whatever might be troubling the soul.
Underlying the work of Jungian analysis is the premise that Jung felt so important.
That foundation is that the healing process grows out of the patient’s personality, the aspect of the psyche that knows what the person most needs for healing and becoming his or her truest self rather than the direction of the analyst.
It takes courage to make that initial call, even if you have been in therapy before. Yet that contact is a step for your well-being. Be patient with the excuses that may pop up to hold you back, but make the call or send the email to begin the journey.
The initial session allows the opportunity for you to get to know Kathryn a bit and to sense if you would like to work with her. For Kathryn it provides her the opportunity to get to know you and sense if she feels she can be of help to you.
The number of sessions and how often a session occurs depends on the individual and his or her situation. Sometimes a few sessions provide what is needed for the client. Other times, if a person wants to do deeper work, time is needed.
The fee is $125 per hour for individual sessions. Kathryn does not work with insurance companies, but she will provide a receipt of payment that may help with some insurances.
Phone sessions and virtual sessions are a possibility.

What makes your life meaningful? Is it your work, your family, your friends, your adventures, your spirituality?
Or does life feel lacking in meaning? Is it dull and boring? How does meaning come about in life?
Everyone experiences anxiety if they are engaged with life. It is a normal emotion that flows in and out of a person's life. Sometimes though it takes over a person and paralyzes in such a way that it is hard to simply live. Other times a person feels anxious, but can manage life.
Depression is a symptom that indicates something is out of balance. Some aspect of one’s being is being "pushed down." The normal energy is missing. It can be a wake-up call that a person needs in order to change an aspect of his or her life. It may be saying, “the old way is no longer life-giving.”
Is your imagination alive and well? Do you allow yourself to move out of the rational world pressing in us to the world of imagination? To bring balance in one’s life, interacting with one’s imagination is very important.
Dreams are what opened my world to Jungian psychology. I have always remembered many dreams, but it wasn’t until I met someone who introduced me to Jungian psychology and began to help me unravel my dreamsthat I realized what a treasure dreams truly are.
