I have a strong interest in the the historical embeddedness of ideas, subjectivity and experience. I see the Freud-Jung split as an unproductive historical development. Dreams as compensations for conscious attitude, projection of the shadow, the phemomena of repressing positive as well as painful experience, and man's need for a meaningul, coherent universe (the "Spritual Problem of Modern Man"), and the narrativity of self are all important counterparts and counterbalances to psychoanalytic orthodoxy.
I'm an LMHC psychotherapist, trained as a psychologist, in private practice and a mental health counselor at NCCC. Also a performing musician. Jung was one of my very first roads into psychology. I'm a native Western New Yorker and live in Allentown.
