do you find a lion that has swallowed you? How do you find
your shadow in the dark? Both Jungian riddles have the same
answer: "inner work".
InnerWork Psychotherapy and Counseling, clients work to regain
balance in their lives, improve the quality of their relationships,
overcome depression, or recover from addiction. InnerWork
is also for the "seeker" (from both traditional and non-traditional
paths), in search of an increased sense of personal meaning,
life purpose, or self-acceptance.
a holistic, Jungian approach, Glen assists clients in developing
the skills, perspective, steadfastness, and patience they need in
order to face their own particular struggles. He points out that
the goal of therapy is not always to do away with life's inevitable
puzzles and problems. "Oftentimes," he says, "the stumbling blocks
that seem to cause our distress turn out to be the stepping stones
that lead the way out."
explains that inner work of this nature frequently explores the
common territory shared by psychology and spirituality, the common
boundary between caring for the personality and caring for the soul.
we seriously tackle our inner work," says Glen, "it's not too difficult
to get the skeletons out of the closet. But to be able to see our
'gold' is a different matter. That is therapy."
another goal," he adds, "is to learn how to live in partnership
with our 'lions and shadows' -so they don't have to swallow us to
get our attention!"
