Portland Therapist

Jungian Analyst

Carol Walnum MA, MBA, LPC, Diplomate Analytical Psychology

Certified Jungian Analyst for adults and young adults in Portland, Oregon.

The shorter and longer forms of therapy I offer help people with a variety of difficult life issues, repeating patterns, and challenging matters of the heart.   I provide Jungian psychotherapy and analysis strengthened by my life experiences, and what I bring to individuals is profoundly informed by the multi-year, in-depth training undertaken at the C.G. Jung Institute, Zurich to become a Diplomate in Analytical Psychology. I have always worked well with a diversity of individuals.

I offer a classical Jungian approach, engaging individuals deeply within talk therapy as well as in classical dream analysis and active imagination, based on Jung’s theory and practice.  Additional in-depth training includes  art therapy, dream analysis, Self Psychology, trauma work, and humanistic theory.

As a seasoned therapist, I work to create a safe and trustworthy professional environment. Clients say I bring skill and experience in developing meaningful therapeutic relationships which meet them where they are and help them to work through what is troubling.
