Meet the Editorial Board below:

Tish Signet, Ph.D. (Associate Editor): Meet Tish, lifelong news junkie, lover of words, and former professional journalist convinced the work is sacred and essential. And as a depth psychologist her focus is on “the rest of the story”—our unconscious human experience, domain of psychology in its original sense, language of the psyche. She’s like an exchange student straddling two cultures, each with its customs, norms, and language.
Heeding her first-career calling, Tish earned a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from UNC-Chapel Hill and has written as staff reporter for The Charlotte News and The Charlotte Observer; as speechwriter, publications editor/writer, strategist, and senior leader in corporate communications at a Fortune 500 megabank; and as freelancer and blogger.
Inspired by C. G. Jung and James Hillman as a dream-journaling teen navigating her own experiences, decades later Tish fortuitously found herself working in a remarkable corporate-leadership culture grounded in their depth psychologies. Tish is a private-practice Depth Psychologist, Licensed Psychotherapist, and Career/Life Counselor in the metro-Charlotte college town of Davidson, NC. Her M.A. in Counseling Psychology and Ph.D. in Depth Psychology are from Pacifica Graduate Institute.
Interweaving of journalism and depth psychology continue through Tish’s 2014 doctoral dissertation, Blood in the Water: Tracking the Wild Grownup in America’s Lust for the Tarnished Hero (Depth Psychology in Dialogue with the Journalism of Popular Culture) and in her blog, www.NewsShrink.net: A depth psychologist’s take on the 24-hour news cycle. She’s provided selection and editing for Depth Insights since 2012.
Daphne Dodson, Ph.D., is a qualitative research psychologist working on behalf of several of the world’s leading healthcare, entertainment, and technology firms. As an excavator and curator of the stories of lived experiences, she adeptly guides individuals to move deeply into their memories and current perspectives to uncover the rich insights hidden therein. She is the author of the forthcoming book, Imaginal Remembering: Engaging Psyche through an Imaginative Approach to Memory and the young adult novel The Outcasts: Simon’s Gift. In addition, her essay “Rebirthing Biblical Myth: The Poisonwood Bible as Visionary Art” is included in the 2016 book, Jungian Perspectives on Rebirth and Renewal: Phoenix Rising, and her article “Saying Goodbye to Our Children: A Phenomenon of Soul-Making” was featured in the December 2016 issue of Psychological Perspectives, published by the C. G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles.
Sarah D. Norton, M.A, lives in Spotsylvania, VA, an hour south of our Nation’s Capital. She is currently writing her dissertation in the field of Depth Psychology with an emphasis in Jungian and archetypal studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute. Her dissertation research is focused on the issue of climate change, specifically the melting of polar ice, viewed through the lens of Jungian psychology, archetypal psychology, and ecopsychology. Sarah is also the editor of the publication The Rose in the World, a biannual collection of essays, poetry, artwork, and dreams (www.roseintheworld.org). The Rose‘s purpose is to “invite Wisdom into our lives and sacred spaces.” It serves as a container, for those involved in Natural Spirituality dream groups around the world and for those using dreams and synchronicity as a part of their spiritual practice, to connect and share their creative work.

Rosen is an American psychiatrist, Jungian analyst, and author, who was the first holder of the McMillan Professorship in Analytical Psychology, Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Science, and Professor of Humanities in Medicine at Texas A&M University.

He is best known for his research involving interviews of survivors of jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge and the therapeutic approach of egocide & transformation in treating suicidally depressed individuals (see “Transforming Depression: Healing the Soul through Creativity”). An interview with Bonnie Bright for Depth Insights focuses on this and other aspects of his research. David edited a book, Less is More: A Collection of Ten-Minute Plays, which contains two plays of his own: “Leap for Life” and “Thanatos Calling.” The first concerns survivors of jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge, and the other is about an elderly suicidal woman.
Lisa Schouw (BCHC, MA, CMPACFA) is a Doctoral Candidate (University of Sydney – Theater and Performance Studies Department). She has a Masters in Engaged Humanities & the Creative Life with an emphasis in Depth Psychology (Pacifica Graduate Institute, USA). She works in Australia as a clinical psychotherapist, singer/songwriter, theater maker, and singing teacher. Her passion is the part creativity plays in the individuation process of her clients and fellow artists.
Lisa writes: “In my work, both as a creative artist and clinical psychotherapist, the emotional energy of an idea, an image, a word, or a human have always been a signal to me that there is something that needs my attention. Whether I am travelling inwards to collect pearls of inspiration from the collective unconscious or sitting in the sacred space of the therapy room in the presence of another, I am always acutely aware that there is a mysterious thread that holds us all to each other. There is a relationship of some kind at play. For as long as humans have walked on the earth, we have come together to share stories that help us know ourselves and each other. My intention as part of the Depth Insights editorial board is to be of service to these stories.”

Barbara Weber, Ph.D.(c) was drawn to the field of depth psychology as a lifelong student of transformational change. She has worked in a variety of consulting and executive capacities with some of those on the forefront of social innovation.
