a depth oriented approach
As author and psychotherapist, Cynthia Anne Hale, Ph.D. explores ways that relationships can help us connect inner and outer experiences.
She writes that anyone can develop greater awareness about how experiences and perceptions affect our interactions with those we care about. Although we are often most motivated when frustrated or in crisis, our relationships with others and our selves can benefit from deep, emotionally-based change at many points along life's journey. More satisfying relationships can be integrated into daily living with increased energy, a new or renewed sense of purpose, and a greater capacity to live fully and creatively.
Approaching processes from an archetypal and depth psychology perspective includes the unconscious layers of ourselves and our communities, and reaches beyond what presents itself on the surface of our lives. Engaging more intentionally with our dreams, art, and writing are just a few ways to access these depths.
Her orientation is based on strengths while exploring the challenges of shadow in relationships and creative collaborative processes. She works with individuals as well as couples in long-term committed relationships who find themselves facing unexpected challenges in life. She also facilitates dream groups, including a dream group for therapists that met for ten years.
As a professor at Pacifica Graduate Institute for nine years, Dr. Hale led institutional learning initiatives that included multi-layered needs, perceptions, and dream studies. She has taught archetypal and depth psychologies, including clinical practice and qualitative research methods. Her publications reflect a range of interests within the field of depth psychology. The Red Place is her first book.
Cynthia Hale is available for presentations and depth oriented consultation.
