About the Author

Satya Doyle Byock, MA, LPC 

Satya Doyle Byock, M.A. is a Jungian psychotherapist in downtown Portland, specializing in the Quarter-Life crisis, dreamwork, and therapy for individuals in the first half of life.

 I received my Masters in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, a school emphasizing the Depth Psychology and the work of Carl Jung. I completed my thesis work on the Quarter-Life Crisis and individuation in the first half of adulthood; I explored the way that demographic and cultural shifts have contributed to an epidemic crisis among individuals in their teens, 20s, and 30s.

I have published articles on this topic in the journalPsychological Perspectives and in various other publications and online. I have led workshops and seminars on Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, and Carl Jung’s Red Book at Portland’s Literary Arts, and have conducted other workshops on dreams and the unconscious at the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA), the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA), and other organizations.

Prior to beginning work as a clinician, I worked in several locations internationally, including with students and monks at a Buddhist temple in central Sri Lanka, with Afro-Colombian prisoners in a Bogotá jail, and with rural farmers after the tsunami in South Asia. I have also worked in business with tech start-ups, non-profits, and foundations, including The Philemon Foundation, which exists to publish the unpublished archives and seminars of Carl Jung.
