The C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco


With roots going back to the founding of San Francisco’s Medical Society for Analytical Psychology in 1943, ours was the first Jungian analytic training program in the world. We are a non-profit organization providing therapeutic services, cultural events for the general public, and training for licensed mental-health professionals. Our extensive analytical psychology library and the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism (ARAS) are available for research.

In addition to certifying licensed mental-health professionals as Jungian analysts, we also offer a two-year, CAPIC-approved, pre-doctoral internship program in our low-fee clinic. The Whitney Clinic is open to the public and offers cost-effective psychotherapy to those in need.

Whether you wish to deepen your understanding of the psyche for professional or personal reasons, the Institute offers many opportunities for you to access what Jungian analytical psychology has to offer.
