Carl Greer, PhD, PsyD is a practicing clinical psychologist, Jungian analyst, and shamanic practitioner. He received his PhD from Columbia University and was on their faculty teaching finance and management in their graduate school of business. He moved to Chicago to work for an oil company and, after focusing on business for many years, he earned a doctorate in clinical psychology, and then became a Jungian analyst.

The shamanic work he does is drawn from a blend of North American and South American indigenous trainings and is influenced by Jungian analytical psychology. He has trained with Peruvian shamans and through Dr. Alberto Villoldo’s Healing the Light Body School, where he has been on staff. He has worked with shamans in South America, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ethiopia, and Outer Mongolia. Carl Greer is involved in various businesses and charities, teaches at the Jung Institute in Chicago, is on the staff of the Lorene Replogle Counseling Center, and holds workshops on Jungian and shamanic topics.

He is the author of Change Your Story, Change Your Life, which combines the techniques and ideas of Jungian psychology and shamanism in a unique way to create a program for reclaiming power over your life and achieving personal transformation. Carl Greer understands there is often a gap between the intention to change one’s life and the actions and mindset needed to actually bring about transformation. His program combines multiple modalities to ensure that you are empowered to make the modifications you desire. Journaling helps you become aware of your emotions, thoughts, and patterns, then consciously choose how you would like to change them. The shamanic and Jungian-inspired techniques tap into the unconscious mind to help you gain deeper insights and alter the energy that is affecting you.
