Lourdes Hernandez, MA Depth Psychology, Jungian Analyst Candidate
My love for psychoanalytic work is founded on my great respect and faith in the soul's capacity to revitalize itself, given needed support and care. In the therapeutic relationship, the psyche is held secure while debilitating emotions such as grief, depression, or anxiety are processed and transformed.
There are times we need a caring professional to come alongside us like Virgil with Dante, as we find our way through our own traumatic Infernos. Finding purpose and meaning in our troubles is often not an easy task to do alone.
Whenever a client shares their vulnerable self with me, I feel honored to be invited into their inner world. I consider it a sacred trust and call.
creative AND SPIRITUAL
You wish to be fully alive and live your days awakened! Yet, you find yourself distracted and dulled. Asking, How do I breathe new life into this stagnant well?
As an exile, you always feel disjointed, like an outsider looking in. You struggle to find true Home, where you truly fit and feel authentically yourself.
Your past follows you into every moment of life: relationships, career, even your family. You just want to be free and move on from your pain.
GRIEF AND LOSS
None of us is immune from suffering and disappointment. However, within the pain can be found an elixir for enriching soul-making.
You find you can't go back to what has been. It's spent; it doesn't feed you anymore. It's over! But you're not sure what's up ahead or how to enter it.
PURPOSE AND MEANING
Your soul suffers for lack of meaning. Something to fill the hollowness inside besides stuff; something that gives light to the darkness of mere existence.
