“The development of consciousness is the burden, the suffering, and the blessing of mankind.” ~ CG Jung
I'm Mackenzie. I'm a writer, researcher, dancer, & therapist.
The first thing I want you to know is that your symptoms are here for a reason. They are trying to lead you back to yourself. The second thing I want you to know is that you are not alone.
My background (bachelor's & master's) are in Clinical Psychology & I have sought additional training in adolescent development, addiction treatment, and spiritual emergence/y. As such, I can help with:
- Anxiety & depression
- Psychosis, mania, & delusional thinking
- Sleep disturbances
- Addiction & substance struggles
- Food or body image issues
- Trauma (c-PTSD & PTSD)
- Loss of faith or meaning, questions of purpose
- Life transitions
- Relational disturbances/attachment issues
I hail from the United States, however I have had the burden & blessing of calling many different countries home. As such, I know what it means to be a stranger in a strange land. It was in pursuit of my dream to study Jung that I found myself in Switzerland, and now here we are.
Before coming here, my work has seen me engaging with diverse & unique populations—from tribal elders in the Amazon rainforest to incarcerated youths in NYC to impoverished, expectant mothers in Washington. I have worked as an educator, a team leader, & a group facilitator. This breadth of experience has gifted me with insight into how brilliant, but also cunning, the human spirit can be. It is in this brilliance, this spirit, that I trust, and how I know your symptoms are here for good reason.
It's up to us, and the power of your conscious perception, to find out what that reason may be.
