Dr. Slattery is a licensed M.D. and psychiatrist in the private practice of psychotherapy and psychiatry in Ann Arbor, Michigan with a special interest in Jungian psychotherapy. Services offered include psychotherapy, psychiatric diagnosis, and medication treatment.
With more than 25 years in private practice, Dr. Robert Slattery, MD, has worked with people of diverse socio-economic backgrounds and ethnicities who are faced with serious challenges or just looking to live life in a better way, do the things they want to do and enjoy life more."
"Many come to a time in life where they have solved as much as they can consciously — when they have run out of road, so to speak, for what they feel they can solve consciously. It is at this point that if we open our minds to a larger pattern we often find more meaning."
"Often people voice a chief complaint saying that life is no longer meaningful. Many times they rediscover a feeling that there is something guiding them. But, to their surprise, it's often found within themselves and it's a custom form of help, too. Others find meaning or learn about their psyche from a defeat, lost relationship, passing of a loved one or serious illness."
"For all of us, it is important to realize that help is within reach."
Regarding his interest in Carl Jung, Dr. Slattery commented, "I do not emphasize my background studies in Jung. In fact, most patients do not realize my interests in Jung because I practice psychotherapy, psychiatric diagnosis, and medication treatment, when necessary. However, I often find that when our conscious comes to a road block, opening our minds to a larger pattern, as I mentioned above, helps to open the door to finding more meaning within oneself."
