a California license as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT
33738) and a Diploma in Analytical Psychology from the C.G.
Jung Institute of Los Angeles. I am a member of the California
Association of Marriage and Family Therapists
(CAMFT), and a member
analyst of the International Association for Analytical Psychology
(IAAP). I am currently the Director of the
Analytic Training Program of the C.G.Jung Institute of Los
Angeles where I also supervise candidates in training to be certified
a B.A. in Art History from Syracuse University and have had
a life-long interest in the arts, myths and fairy
tales. In 1992 I received an
M.A. in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. My Master’s thesis, Her Journey Back: A
Return to the Feminine Beyond the Maternal, dealt with
how, until relatively recently, the only sanctioned way for
women to create was to give birth. The paper looked at how
women have been hindered in expressing their own creativity.
What happens when women limit their creativity to the literal
and fail to address what else is asking to be born?
