     Charlotte M. Mathes, LCSW, Ph.D. is a certified Jungian analyst and a graduate of the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland. She received her doctoral degree in psychoanalysis from the Union Graduate School in Cincinnati.  She is a clinical member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists who has been in private practice for over twenty years.  She lectures and conducts seminars in Jungian psychology, family therapy and bereavement.

    Dr. Mathes has recently returned to the New Orleans area, home at last, after situations  involving Hurricane Katrina have occupied the past seven years.  She is now accepting new patients in her Metairie, Louisiana office.  She is also finding greater value in video consultations for people who do not have access to a certified Jungian analyst.

From the New Orleans Jung Society Newsletter:
Study Group, Metairie

Charlotte Mathes has returned to the New Orleans area and is relocating her psychotherapy practice in Metairie. She is offering a study group focusing on where we stand both collectively and individually seven years after Katrina. Examining chaos, grief, and loss—the dark side of God—we will ask how destruction is indispensable to life and how the psyche heals from trauma. Collectively, what might be the hidden meaning in the disorder of the contemporary world, and personally, how do we respond to the dark side of God? Suggested readings are: Archetype of the Apocalypse by Edward Edinger; Sacred Chaos by Francoise O’Kane; and C.G. Jung’s Answer to Job. The group will meet twice a month at 222 Saint Peter, Metairie, LA 70005. Time will be decided by the participants.

Women's Group, Metairie

Charlotte Mathes is interested in organizing a woman’s group focusing on the religious function of the psyche and Jung’s theory, offering a map for women who are growing older.


    Dr. Mathes is the author of a book: And a Sword Shall Pierce Your Heart: Moving from Despair to Meaning after the Death of a Child.  Dr. Mathes is also a contributor to: Psyche & the City: A Soul's Guide to the Modern Metropolis (Analytical Psychology & Contemporary Culture)
