Welcome to the homepage for my practice of psychotherapy and Jungian analysis. As an associate clinical professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California at San Francisco and as an analyst member of the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, I offer the benefit of training, expertise and many years of clinical experience to help address your concerns.
People often find that psychotherapy and analysis can be the most effective ways to address many issues and problems. Whether as children or adults, individuals or couples, situations of loss, tragedy, worry, fear, confusion, anger or a sense of meaninglessness effect all of us at one time or another. What I have to offer is a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, along with the capacity to understand and bear witness to life's struggles, joining together in a search for meaning, self-acceptance, and relief. My approach engages people on a number of levels: addressing experiences of earlier years as well as the current situation, working with both conscious and unconscious parts of the psyche, and accessing the underlying wellspring of transforming energy that can meet the suffering in life and move toward healing and wholeness. This process is based on the mutual responsibility of therapist and patient to the work. It can be most effectively developed within an understanding, empathic relationship that values authenticity, creativity and the freedom to find one's own absolutely unique way.
I have devoted many years to learning the practice of psychotherapy: undergoing my own analysis, apprenticing myself to more senior teachers, studying the integration of theory and practice in my doctoral education, and completing additional years of study to become certified as a Jungian Analyst. I am a clinical faculty member at a number of educational institutions in the area (see About Dr. Zemmelman). I treasure learning as a lifelong process to stay abreast of developments in my profession. Most of all, I am honored and privileged to have the opportunity to work with the people who come to my practice.
