The alchemical mercurial fountain

The alchemical mercurial fountain, symbolizing the beginning of a therapeutic journey

C.G. Jung taught that we do not evolve alone on a mountain top, but in relationship to others. Couples’ issues can challenge us most deeply. Our choice of partner is usually no accident, and we have an uncanny capacity to select a mate that can potentially help us to grow in necessary ways, leading us to the deepest parts of our being. This is true regardless of gender or sexual orientation. I have worked extensively with heterosexual and same-sex couples struggling with a wide variety of issues, including:

-   conflict and power struggles
-   lack of intimacy and affection
-   communication problems
-   emotional distance and isolation
-   diminished sex life
-   blaming
-   infidelity and betrayal
-   open relationships
-   emerging lifestyle differences
-   money and finances
