David C Hamilton
Licensed Psychoanalyst, IAAP
I'm a Swiss-trained Jungian Analyst (www.jungiananalystvt.com) who views the analytic encounter as a deep and soulful collaboration within which we examine the origins, patterns and futility of disruptive unconscious complexes and behaviors while working to strengthen the soul's authentic, meaning-making, imaginative capability - what James Hillman termed the "poetic basis of mind". To facilitate this process, I aspire to create an environment of trust and confidence in which we engage the psyche, where one's inner world of thoughts, feelings, images, fantasies & dreams can be fully expressed, explored and reflected upon with compassion & without judgment.
My practice draws individuals with a broad range of difficulties including creative and artistic struggles, relational dynamics; personal, vocational, sexual and spiritual identity issues, life transitions, self-esteem fluctuations, depression and life experiences seeming to lack depth, meaning, intimacy, or community. Dream work is a cornerstone of my practice.
To be sure, exploring one's inner life can be difficult and the journey long, but with patience, perseverance and gentle encouragement, the effort can lead to wider consciousness, a renewed sense of personal meaning and greater wisdom. Subsequently, maturation of the personality quickens, mental health improves & psychological suffering diminishes.
