Welcome to the world of Jung At Heart and the view from here

 
Cheryl Fuller here. I am a Jungian psychotherapist living on the coast of Maine. I am passionately interested in depth psychology, psychotherapy, feminism, fat studies. I enjoy working in psychotherapy with weight, eating, and body image issues, all from a fat positive approach. Another special interest I have is psychotherapy focusing on issues of chronic illness, aging and finding purpose in later life.

I hold a BA in Psychology from Duke University, an MA in Clinical Psychology from the University of Connecticut, and a PhD in Jungian Studies from the Union Institute.

I grew up an Army brat. Having lived in many places, I happily settled in Maine in 1972 and declared myself at home. I live with my husband and 3 cats in Belfast, Maine where I work with patients in psychotherapy, write, read and knit. Neal and I recently realized we cannot possibly watch everything in our Amazon, Netflix, and Acorn queues in this lifetime, still we soldier on.
