Jacqueline J. West, Ph.D.

Jacqueline J. West, Ph.D of Santa Fe, NM received her doctorate from the University of California, Santa Cruz and is a graduate of Stanford University. She is now a dipomate Jungian analyst completing her training in 1992 with the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts (IRSJA). “As a child, I imagined I naturally and always would be an artist. I spent countless hours drawing and painting, particularly horses. When I was 16, I did spend one unusual year in art school when I lived in Lahore, Pakistan, where my father was a Fulbright scholar. But, when I entered  Stanford, philosophy and psychology quickly ignited my mind and heart and I immersed myself intensely in these worlds.” Dr. West’s primary dedication today is to her private practice. She also is active in the Santa Fe Jung Institute as well as IRSJA, as well as teaching, writing, and lecturing. She is co-author with Nancy J. Dougherty of The Matrix and Meaning of Character: An Archetypal and Developmental Point of View.  Dr. West and her husband have two grown children.
