About Me

michael-redingI chose to be a psychiatrist because I believed my ability to listen and understand could benefit others and create meaning in their lives as well as mine. Although I trained as both an adult and child psychiatrist, and became certified in both specialties, I have used my 37 years of experience and my training as a Jungian analyst to evolve beyond the medical model.

I became a Jungian Analyst because I believe that the self that wants to emerge from within is more authentic and true than the self that tries to live up to the expectations of others. My work as a Jungian Analyst consists mostly in listening and when appropriate speaking up for the self that knows best what’s good for itself.

I enjoy working with couples and families, using all of my skills and training to help my patients achieve their goals and live the lives they were meant to live.
