Cathy has both an integrative and eclectic practice as she incorportaes the work of Dr. Carl Jung to Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Dream Work, Chakra Energy Planning to create Balance, working with sand tray, mandalas, archetypes and the collective unconscious to help clients create a new way of achieving desired change and outcome for success.   Carl Jung is well known for his work in analytical psychology. Jung was a believer that religious expression was manifested from the psyche’s yearning for a balanced state of consciousness and unconsciousness simultaneously. Jung spent many years studying and practicing with Freud but this specific theory led them to part ways. Jung  felt that the collective unconscious was one shared by all people. The foundation for this theory was based on specific archetypes and patterns that dictate how people process psychic images. Throughout history and across all cultures, mythology and dream study have maintained a common thread. Jung believed that each person strives to achieve wholeness by attaining a harmony within consciousness and unconsciousness and that this can be accomplished through dream study. Cathy can help you process your dreams and allow you to find symbols and meaning that may help you resolve conflicts, find meaning, or let go of self-sabotage.
