Jennifer Kunst, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst, working with adults and couples in her private practice in Pasadena, CA.
She is a faculty member at the Psychoanalytic Center of California and the Fuller Graduate School of Psychology, teaching courses in psychoanalytic theory and technique. In addition to writing about psychoanalytic principles in academic journals, she has a strong desire to share the helpful insights of psychoanalysis with the ordinary person on the street.
Her book, “Wisdom from the Couch: Knowing and Growing Yourself from the Inside, Out," was published in June 2014 from Consortium/Central Recovery Press.
A Headshrinker's Guide to the Galaxy is an effort to bring the wisdom of psychoanalysis out of the ivory tower by applying it to the real problems of real people in a user-friendly way. In writing this blog, Dr. Kunst hopes to demystify the process of psychoanalysis and make it accessible to anyone who is searching for a more satisfying and meaningful life. So relax, kick off your shoes, lean back, and let the healing begin!
