The Creative Path of Therapy
Holly Vollink-Lent is a 2004 graduate of the Blanton-Peale Psychoanalytic Institute in Manhattan. She is a licensed psychoanalyst in the State of New York. As a former New Yorker, Holly is excited to offer her unique therapeutic skills to the Rochester area.
She is eclectic in her approach by working with each client based on their life experience, ethnic and spiritual backgrounds and individual needs. Skilled in Jungian theory and techniques, she calls upon the creative work of dream analysis, synchronistic events and symbolic images unique to each client to help recover meaning and purpose in their lives.
Although she is equipped with the power to "diagnose and treat", she is not limited to the Western model of treating "mental illness", but prefers to focus on creating meaning and insight which ultimately leads to wholeness and balance tailored to the uniqueness of each client. It is this creative, artistic process which motivates her to journey with you as you find your path to a more meaningful and enjoyable life.
