Gloria Avrech, PhD, LCSW
I am a Jungian analyst with a doctorate in clinical social work and Director of the Hilde Kirsch Children’s Center at the C. G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles working with people of all ages within all major clinical modalities. I have many years of experience working with people who have a range of problems including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationship problems, work problems, school problems, men and women’s problems, sexual, physical and emotional abuse, developmental issues and spiritual issues.
I have particular skills in Jungian dream interpretation and in the use of sandplay as a therapeutic technique for people of all ages and have given lectures and workshops on these topics and others all over the USA. I am a relational analyst and love my work!
Publications: My publications include articles and reviews in PSYCHOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVES, SAN FRANCISCO JUNG INSTITUTE LIBRARY JOURNAL, JUNG JOURNAL, and SANDPLAY: COMING OF AGE. I compiled and edited a book of poetry and prose, A QUIRKY EYE. And I wrote and published a children’s book: NANA’S AMAZING JOURNEY: A SHAMANIC CHILDREN’S STORY.
