Gary Toub, Ph.D., is a diplomate Jungian analyst and licensed clinical psychologist practicing in Denver, Colorado.  He is a graduate of the Training Institute of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts and the Research Society for Process-Oriented Psychology. He has over 35 years of clinical experience.  In addition to his private practice, Dr. Toub is a Senior Training Analyst at the C. G. Jung Institute of Colorado, where he supervises and trains clinicians and teaches classes to the general public. For over 25 years, he served as President and Director of Training for the Institute as well.

In his private practice, Dr. Toub sees adults, couples, and children.  He specializes in a Jungian analytic approach, often employing dream interpretation, active imagination, and sandplay aimed at exploring the unconscious in order to resolve problems and symptoms and assist the individuation, or self-actualization, process.  The central aim of Dr. Toub's approach is helping you connect to your center and the transforming power of your psyche. The result is a more integrated sense of who you are and the meaning of your life.  He is also interested in synchronicity, mind-body phenomena, alchemical active imagination, Taoist philosophy, shamanism, and mystical experiences and practices.  Dr. Toub offers short-term as well as long-term analysis and psychotherapy tailored to individual needs.  A free initial consultation is available by appointment.  Some insurance is accepted and reduced rates are available.  Credit cards are accepted via PayPal.  His office is centrally located just west of Cheesman Park.  It is easily accessible from anywhere in the Denver metro area, as well as the foothills and Boulder.  For further information or an appointment, call (303) 278-2448.

Dr. Toub has authored a number of articles on Jungian themes.  His article, “The Usefulness of the Useless,” was included in the popular 1991 anthology, Meeting the Shadow: The Hidden Power of the Dark Side of Human Nature.  In his 1997 article, “Being Jungian in Today’s World,” Dr. Toub writes:

… the seeds of who we are and the potential solutions to our problems are latent in the unconscious.  It is inviting and exciting to embark on a journey in which we look into the deeper realms of our inner self for wisdom and guidance.  Many of my clients are relieved to discover that their psyche is self-regulating, and that they needn’t buy into others’ models of who they should be.  Even if they do not like all that they see in themselves, clients in Jungian treatment seem to derive an overall benefit from self-knowledge, self-acceptance, self-responsibility, and freedom from externally imposed models of wellness.

Speaking more personally, Dr. Toub describes himself as follows:

I am passionately interested in Jungian psychology and related transpersonal areas.  I am committed to a Jungian spiritual practice involving maintaining an ongoing and ever-deepening relationship with the Self.  I listen carefully to the wisdom of the psyche through dreams, synchronicities, body signals, and active imagination.  I am also a lover of dogs, cats, nature, gardening, music, art, movies, ethnic foods, and science fiction, fantasy, and mystery novels.  I enjoy playing and having fun.  I dabble in various arts and crafts--from making miniature fantasy figures for my sandtray to creating “dream cards” depicting images from my dreams. Off and on, I engage in research and writing. For exercise, I like to walk, hike, and swim.
