Psychologist and Jungian psychoanalyst
CG Jung Institute of San Francisco

I now work as an adult and child Jungian psychoanalyst in San Francisco, CA. Before that, I worked as director of a treatment center for children with emotional disorders including those with autism spectrum disorders. I like reading about myths and trying to understand how they continue to live within us, in our dreams, and in our social narratives. I enjoy traveling, and feel very fortunate to have the support of a loving partner for over 30 years.


I am an analyst member of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, and its current President; I have taught in the Institute’s analytic training program. I am a Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California at San Francisco. I have published professional articles in many different journals related to clinical work with children, adolescents, and adults.

Areas of Research / Professional Expertise

    I have conducted research on social development groups for children with autism spectrum disorders. More recently, I have written several articles about the meanings of various parts of the myth of the Golden Fleece. I am now interested in how new communicative technologies are affecting psychotherapy practice and our interactions with our patients.

Personal Interests

    I enjoy traveling a lot, especially when there are opportunities to visit museums and see great art. Several of our trips have been organized just around that. I lived in Germany prior to the fall of the wall, and go back often to visit friends there. I have a good speaking ability of German, and have used this in my practice on occasion. I am a tropical fish hobbyist and have a hard time thinking why I don't need another aquarium.
