Inner Work




Welcome to the website of Houston Jungian psychologist Jerry M. Ruhl, Ph.D. and his co-author Robert A. Johnson.

There are times throughout life when each of us faces challenges that leave us feeling overwhelmed, confused, depressed, or anxious. When we get stuck in those feelings, when we keep recycling harmful or limiting life patterns, then it is the time to reach out for help.

If you are feeling fearful, lost or frustrated, if you are struggling through a difficult transition—psychotherapy can help move you toward a greater sense of well-being and empowerment. Perhaps most importantly, it can help to make your life feel manageable, meaningful and interesting again. Life only demands from you the strength you already possess. The key is not to run away or to avoid what needs to change.

I am experienced in working with a broad range of issues and people. I work primarily with adults in Houston, TX. If you feel I can be of assistance, please contact me to discuss your needs and to set up an initial appointment.

"So often problems in life are perceived to be an external crisis, when really they are about growing beyond our current level of consciousness. The individual at the center of the crisis actually is ripe for more awareness. The aim of life (is) to realize the whole range of one's capacities."
-- C.G. Jung
