Marian Joycechild, PhD


I have a bachelor’s degree from University of Michigan, a master’s degree from John F. Kennedy University, and a doctorate from the Professional School of Psychology. I also have a psychoanalytic certificate from the Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California (PINC) where I am a personal and supervising analyst and am on the faculty.


I have taught classes to beginning and advanced psychotherapists at various institutes and schools, and have also privately taught child psychotherapy, group process and therapy, primitive states, trauma, Freudian theory, and numerous case conferences.
