    I am a licensed Psychotherapist with a Ph.D. in Psychology. I offer you over 30 years experience and in-depth education in Jungian psychology.

    EDUCATION:

    UNDERGRAD: CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY: The Chairman of the Psychology Department was Dr. Edward Teney A Jungian Psychologist, who I met early on and who became a mentor and a dear friend. This was the beginning of my Jungian education.

    MASTERS: CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY: Studied Archetypal Psychology. Dr Sheila Moon, a famous Jungian author, who taught Mythology was the main focus of my attention and a member of my thesis committee. In addition, this was the beginning of my study of Yoga with Dr. Elanor Chriswell, founding member of the Humanistic Psychology Institute, (now Saybrook University), and editor of Somatics Magazine. I went on to attend the Humanistic Psychology Institute where both Dr Moon and Dr Crisswell were on my dissertation committee.

    Ph.D Humanistic Psychology Institute/Saybrook: Continuation of Psychology Education focusing on Jungian Psychology, Healing and Wisdom Traditions. The title of my dissertation was “A Foot In Both Worlds: Healing Contemporary Alienation Through a Dialogue with Primitive Wisdom.” I did two years of field work in extremely rural and undeveloped communities and pueblos in Latin America.
