Phyllis Marie Jensen

is a Jungian Psychoanalyst (ISAPZürich) and Art and Sandplay therapist in Vancouver, Canada. Also a social and behavioural science evidence-based researcher, she’s an  associate clinical professor in Family Medicine, University of Alberta.

I began my career as a registered nurse working in open-heart surgery and intensive care before completing a BA and MA at the University of Western Ontario and a PhD at the University of Toronto. This was followed by evidence-based health research positions in family medicine at McMaster University and University of Alberta. In 2011, I completed a second "doctorate" from the International School of Analytic Psychology (ISAPZurich). After twenty-five years in Toronto, I returned to Western Canada before settling in Vancouver and opening a private practice as registered Jungian Psychoanalyst. As a health researcher, I have team-published articles, reports, co-authored books, contributed to edited volumes and the Canadian Encyclopedia as well as published a few short stories. Recently, I have begun writing as a Jungian analyst.
