Jungian psychology was a passing interest for me until my mid 40’s when I decided to join a local seminar and learn more about Analytical psychology. I entered training with the Inter-regional Society of Jungian Analyst in 2002 and graduated in 2009.
I have a wide range of specializations including the psychology of environmental problem and the Nature archetype. This interest integrates my professional expertise as an Environmental Toxicologist with the symbolic process identified by C.G. Jung. I believe it is important to understand one’s conscious and unconscious drives and creative motivations, and to understand what Jung called one’s shadow, or those places where we have hidden creative potential that inner voices tell us we should not use.
In addition, I am interested in images in Tarot, alchemy, and the alchemical process, more particularly how these images manifest in books, films and art. Images are important in the psyche and often represent symbols of change. I have written and presented on how certain films reflect the alchemical process and how alchemical transformation occur within movies.
I am also interested in issues of addiction, one of the complexes Jung found hard to treat, but that one where Jung’s interest in the self provided a path for addiction and trauma recovery.
