Carol Walnum MA, MBA, LPC, Diplomate Analytical Psychology
Certified Jungian Analyst and for adults and young adults in Portland, Oregon.
The shorter and longer forms of therapy I offer help with difficult life issues, repeating patterns, challenging matters of the heart, and they help to reduce suffering. The Jungian psychotherapy and analysis I provide is strengthened by my life experiences and study. They are profoundly informed by the multi-year, in-depth training I undertook as a Diplomate in Analytical Psychology from the C.G. Jung Institute, Zurich.
As a certified Jungian Analyst, I offer a classical Jungian approach, engaging individuals deeply within talk therapy as well as classical dream analysis and active imagination based on Jung’s own theory and practice. I am trained in art therapy, dream analysis, Self Psychology, and humanistic theory.
As a seasoned therapist, I offer 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. To this end, I am comfortable with seeing you for the length of time you wish to be seen.
