Joli is currently a doctoral candidate at Pacifica Graduate Institute, where she also received her master’s degree in Depth Psychology with a specialization in Jungian and Archetypal Psychologies. She earlier earned her bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, in psychology at Bay Path University where she found herself drawn into the research and theory side of psychology, writing consistently about the challenges of being a human in the modern world of information saturation but lacking connection to others and Self.
Training with The Institute for Sexuality Education and Enlightenment, Joli learned to look beyond the tropes of sex, orientation, and identity to a deeper connection between sex and a soulful life. This is where she learned to take a holistic approach to sexuality, which is the foundation of her entire practice. She is certified through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT).
At Pacifica Graduate Institute she felt sure that everything in her past had led to this point, where modern sexuality research could be understood through a mythological and archetypal perspective. Adding the depth psychological perspective to sex education provides an innovative way to peel back the layers of sex, identity, and desire revealing what our dreams and fantasies have to tell us about our inner most self.
Joli is a psychologist whose life has always revolved around teaching in non-traditional settings. Rather than working on what is “wrong” in a situation, Joli approaches every question and emotion with an attitude of curiosity, looking for the ways she can help you to find your own answers, providing practical, well researched support for your personal exploration of sexual and relationship issues at every step of your process.
