While not widely discussed, early psychological theories were developed and based upon investigations in connection with the physical body. Freud made significant contributions to somatic depth psychology during his development of psychoanalysis and significant connections have been made between emotional and psychological difficulties and constriction held within the body. Moreover, the importance of intentionally including the body to create change has been clearly demonstrated throughout the works of leading Jungian Analysts including C.G. Jung and Marion Woodman.
“Only if you first return to the body, to your earth, can individuation take place, only then does the thing become true.” – C.G. JungMarc Adams, LMSW, MBA is co-founder of Creative-Depth, an organization dedicated to bringing more insight, purpose, and meaning to the clinical setting through both the demonstration and practical application of depth psychological concepts. As a licensed clinical social worker in private practice, Marc specializes in existential counseling with a Jungian approach. Marc’s professional journey has included working in the volatile banking industry for over 28 years before acquiring a psychotherapy license. He also dedicated years to learning guitar concentrating on Flamenco, dancing focused on Argentine tango, and intensive study abroad programs to gain fluency in multiple languages. One key element that has remained constant throughout the years has been a magnetic attraction to inner work and, ultimately, the desire to partner with others in facilitating their journey to experience new perspectives and new ways of being.
