John Michael Hayes, Ph.D., ABPP
My professional interest and passion is depth psychology and the human spirit. I am a long-time student of Jung and Freud, as well as contemporary relational psychoanalysis. My work is informed and deepened by study of philosophy, theology, and literature. More than a decade of post-doctoral training helps me listen well, appreciate complexity, and get to the heart of the matter – whether in short-term consultations, in psychotherapy or psychoanalysis, or in therapy with couples or families.
Experience has taught me that people fare best when they take the time and muster the courage to truly open up and face themselves in depth. When the inner life is given the intense attention its complexity demands, painful experiences are healed, conflicts resolved, and necessary changes and difficult decisions are made with integrity, confidence and wisdom. The only real way “out” is “through”.
