My approach is based on Process Work, which is an awareness-based approach to facilitating change in individuals, relationships, families, and organizations. Dr. Arnold Mindell and his associates have been developing Process Work since the early 1970’s. Also known as Process Oriented Psychology, the aproach has its philosophical roots in Jungian psychology, Taoism, shamanism, alchemy, and modern physics. Unlike most psychology, Process Work does not have preconceived ideas about how individuals, couples, or organizations should look and behave. Instead, Process Work believes that each individual and organization has an inherent intelligence and drive to find creative solutions to their own problems, which brings forth satisfaction and sustainability in their individual or organizational life. Using this empowering perspective, Process Work has developed a practical framework with comprehensive methods that guide individuals and organizations to transform challenges into creativity and strength and to transform conflicts into deeper intimacy and collaboration.
The applications of Process Work cover a wide range of disciplines including, but not limited to, working with body symptoms, altered and extreme states of consciousness (such as “psychotic states” and coma states), trauma and abuse, addiction, relationship conflicts, small and large group issues, and organizational and community development.
