Rachael Vaughan, MA, MFT

Rachael Vaughan is a licensed psychotherapist, writer, and graduate school professor. She holds an MA in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, California, as well as an MA in Linguistics from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. She has studied at the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco.
As a Jungian-oriented therapist, Rachael frequently works with dreams as a window to the personal and collective psyche. She has studied advanced dreamwork with Dr Stephen Aizenstat, and teaches clinical dreamwork at the California Institute of Integral Studies, where she is a member of the core faculty. She is particularly interested in the somatics of dreaming, and in how symbol, metaphor and movement mediate between implicit and explicit memory. Rachael has a ten-year dance and authentic movement practice, and a background in Gestalt and somatic therapy.

Rachael also holds a Permaculture Design Certificate and has an active interest in eco-psychology, grounded in gardening, nature art and rural life. She lives about one hour north of San Francisco, in the hills of California.
