Stephen Martz, DMin

My analytic interests are broad.  Most important to me is the classical Jungian tradition, with its abiding interest in dreams and other expressions of the unconscious.  My original training in self psychology and psychoanalysis continues to influence my work, as does contemporary psychoanalysis and systems thought (especially the work of Murray Bowen).  My years of teaching aspiring therapists at Loyola’s Institute of Pastoral Studies increased my appreciation for the Existential, Gestalt, and even the cognitive approaches.


I work primarily with adult individuals and an occasional couple.  My case load usually includes 20-somethings through 80-somethings.  The largest part of my practice is with clinicians and clergy.  Because I am an Episcopal priest and spent 20 years in parish ministry, the intersection religion and spirituality is a strong clinical interest.  I especially enjoy working with unconventional spiritualities.


Other interests include:

  • Illness, grief, death, and dying. This has been a focal point of my work since the 1980s, when I co-founded the AIDS Pastoral Care Network.
  • Relationships and sexuality, including LGBT concerns. Also a longstanding focus.
  • Retirement and aging. These increasingly occupy my clinical attention and interest.

Two final notes.  1.  In recent years my caseload almost always has been full, making it difficult for me to accept new clients.  Nevertheless, feel free to contact me.  You might catch me at the right moment and, even if you don’t, I will try to help you by suggesting colleagues that might be a good fit.  2.  Although I no longer am significantly involved in the Institute – like Jung, I’ve become ambivalent about institutions — I served as its president from 2015 to 2018, directed its two-year training program (2010-2012), and spent many years teaching and serving on its Board and committees.
