BioSteve’s analytic work and interests are broad. He is rooted especially in the classical tradition of Jungian analysis, with its abiding interest in dreams and other activations of the unconscious. His original clinical training provided him with a strong developmental foundation that has focused his work more broadly than the customary Jungian emphasis on mid-life. Steve works frequently with both young adults and seniors. The work with young women and men often focuses on love and work. He is particularly experienced with relationships and sexuality, including LGBT concerns. His work with older adults in recent years has focused on issues related to retirement
Much of Steve’s work these days is with mental health clinicians and clergy. An Episcopal priest as well as analyst, he spent nearly 20 years in parish ministry and has particular expertise at the intersection of psychology and spirituality. An additional focus of his work is illness, grief, and mourning, with which he has extensive clinical and pastoral experience. Steve has a large sand tray collection in his Glen Ellyn office and enjoys working with individuals drawn to sand tray work. He also is trained in marriage and family therapy, and works with couples as well as individuals.
Steve has been an active leader in the Jungian community in Chicago, and currently serves as president of the Jung Institute. He is a past director of the Institute’s two-year training program and teaches in that program as well as the Analyst Training Program and the public education program. In addition, he is an adjunct faculty member at Loyola university’s Institute of Pastoral Studies, where he teaches graduate students in the pastoral program.
