Is inescapable in true living and necessary to reassess our inner world and its perceptions and our outer world and its supports to create sincere resiliency
Is the profound place where we pay attention to not just our own voices but also to the voices of the world to create conscious, compassionate belonging
Is a temporary hiding place to which we retreat to attune to profound pain, to the place where our heart has nowhere else to turn to -- until we pay attention to the healthy breath of our body, to the agility and to the wisdom of our body to retrieve and create patience, compassion and freshness

If you recognize at least three of the symptoms below you may want to know that there is help for you. Some of the symptoms can turn into habits and habits can be changed into constructive solutions. Sometimes you may be experiencing depression or anxiety. Don't hesitate to look at these symptoms more closely.
"Whatever lies behind us and whatever lies in front of us are but tiny matters in comparison to what lies within us."
Low self-esteem and feelings of hopelessness may interfere with your relationships or your career. Transitions, whether you choose them or they choose you, can be very confusing. Life may seem difficult at times and you may not know who to turn to. At times, you may need to surrender your questions, instead turning inward, developing awareness and allowing answers to surface naturally. You will be able to foster inner silence and recognize that each symptom is just a knock on your door, asking you, to wake up from ordinary experience and to make a conscious change.
Gentle change can turn into a joyful discovery that opens the door for possibilities. You may experience a spiritual awakening. Therapy doesn't have to be painful and long. In just a few sessions you can feel rejuvenated and gain more clarity. Therefore, you can regain a sense of comfort and well-being.
When you are ready to explore your current mental health please schedule an appointment.
All workshops and seminars focus on strengths-based approaches and incorporate post-modern principles with the basic premise that the person her/himself is the expert on her/his own life. Therapy is thus geared towards utilizing the resources, strengths and wisdom that the person brings to the therapist. Change comes from and through the person. The therapist's work is geared to elicit resources and responses that gently guide the person in the direction that they have chosen to move towards. Psychotherapy is a therapeutic enterprise that can be viewed as elicting resources to enter a spiritual process between the psyche and the mind.
"Each person is a unique individual. Hence, psychotherapy should be formulated to meet the uniqueness of the individual's needs, rather than tailoring the person to fit the Procrustean bed of a hypothetical theory of human behavior"
Anita Jung has been teaching internationally and nationally for Milton H. Erickson Societies, the International Society of Hypnosis, the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, the Biofeedback Organization, the University of Texas, the Texas Network of Youth Services, and for many other private and non-profit organizations.

Ms. Jung beautifully integrates music and trance rhythms with her own enchanting, hypnotic voice to offer a variety of different experiences of altered states of consciousness. The musicians are first-rate and the production values are superb, making this a most valuable CD. Stephen Gilligan, Ph.D. ; Author, “Therapeutic Trances”
FINDING INNER FREEDOM
The River Between depicts a musical journey, utilizing therapeutic trance stories, to discover awareness and mindfulness. Anita Jung's soothing guidance and Rajamani’s enchanting music are leading you into the realm of inner peace and physical well-being. Listeners notice an inner awakening of strengths and discover hidden talents.
Trance activates self-healing systems in your body to increase the natural flow of creativity and motivation. Through this journey you are awakening your sense of well-being and inner comfort.
The River Between is a CD that features therapeutic stories with music. The tradition of storytelling is timeless and known to most cultures as an experience vital to the health of individuals, the environment and the community. Listeners let go of defenses and relax into the known, safe environment of a story. A natural shift in consciousness takes place.
Stories warm our hearts, inspire our dreams, our passion for life and activate mind-body healing processes. Without stories, we wouldn’t have a past, a nation, a culture or a society. Without your own story your life could not be told. All stories follow a trail into society’s collective memories from generations past. As the threads of the stories begin to unravel. the more enchanting and joyous you begin to feel. The CD contains therapeutic suggestions that are interspersed in stories whose content is far removed from any of your current concerns.
For centuries, indigenous populations have induced trance states during healing ceremonies. Everyone knows how to enter trance and many do so without being aware of it, such as during ecstatic dancing, a computer game, a favorite movie, etc.
Trance heightens various states of consciousness to activate inner healing processes. This heightened state results in deep relaxation, lessened anxiety, enhanced performance, lessened or eliminated pain and changed perspectives in an unobtrusive and gentle way.
“This CD is a remarkable mix of exceptional trance process, extraordinary music, and great transformational stories. I highly recommend it!” Stephen Gilligan, Ph.D. Author, “Therapeutic Trances” - USA
“To summarize, the stories, especially after listening to the preparation tracks, are highly effective. Whoever can remain relaxed will find success with this CD.”
Klaus-Günther Beck-Ewerhardy (www.sandammeer.at, ab 28.12.2006) - Germany
People have been entering hypnotic-type trances for thousands and thousands of years; various forms of meditation play an important role in many cultures' religions. But the scientific conception of hypnotism wasn't born until the late 1700s.
The father of modern hypnotism is Franz Mesmer, an Austrian physician. Mesmer believed hypnosis to be a mystical force flowing from the hypnotist into the subject (he called it "animal magnetism"). Although critics quickly dismissed the magical element of his theory, Mesmer's assumption, that the power behind hypnosis came from the hypnotist and was in some way inflicted upon the subject, took hold for some time. Hypnosis was originally known as mesmerism, after Mesmer, and we still use its derivative, "mesmerize," today.
It is a trance state characterized by focused attention, heightened awareness, deep relaxation and enhanced creativity. It's not really like sleep because the subject is alert the whole time. It is most often compared to daydreaming, or the feeling of "losing yourself" in a book or movie. You are fully conscious, but you tune out most of the stimuli around you. You focus intently on the subject at hand, to the near exclusion of any other thought.
Numerous studies have compared the physical "body signs" of hypnotic subjects with those of unhypnotized people. Due to the relaxation involved in the hypnotism process in most of these studies,the subject's heart rate and respiration slowed down.
The most notable data comes from electroencephalographs (EEGs), measurements of the electrical activity of the brain. Extensive EEG research has demonstrated that brains produce different brain waves, rhythms of electrical voltage, depending on their mental state. Deep sleep has a different rhythm than dreaming, for example, and full alertness has a different rhythm than relaxation.
EEGs from subjects under hypnosis showed a boost in the lower frequency waves associated with dreaming and sleep, and a drop in the higher frequency waves associated with full wakefulness. Brain-wave information is not a definitive indicator of how the mind is operating, but this pattern does fit the hypothesis that the conscious mind backs off during hypnosis and the subconscious mind takes a more active role.
Family constellation (Familienaufstellung) was developed in Germany by Bert Hellinger who created a model that draws from traditions in family systems therapy, existential phenomenology, and the Zulu family traditions. When Hellinger studied the Zulu traditions he walked away with the essence of the following concepts that are deeply rooted in his work:
Bert Hellinger, who studied and treated families for more than 50 years, observed that many of us unconsciously take on destructive familial patterns of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, aloneness, alcoholism and even illness as a way of "belonging" in our families. Bonded by a deep love, a child will often sacrifice his own best interests in a vain attempt to ease the suffering of a parent or other family member.
Hellinger coined the concept of “Orders of Love” in a systemic family sense, meaning that order in a family system must exist similar to the order experienced in nature. Order can be described as a natural pattern. One of the orders, for example, is that every member has a right to belong. If that order is respected harmony and love ensue. Negative consequences arise if the order is disrespected which may affect the family system for generations. Any trauma that is experienced in the family gets carried on to the next generations. Once a person accepts and understands and honors the order in the system, healing can take place.
During a constellation, the individual is invited by the facilitator to select representatives from the group to set up their family system/constellation. S/he then places these representatives in particular positions around the central working area. When complete, the individual converses with the facilitator and watches the process unfold. The aim for the representatives is to tune into the knowing field, much to what Einstein called the zero point field and Hellinger coined the knowing field. Facing and accepting everything the way it is, as it emerges, from the realm of observation and non-judgment, allows for insight into the true nature of reality and invites acceptance, and therefore, transformation.
Constellation work has to be experienced. One cannot learn or gain insights from reading it in books. Hellinger once said that “the spirit moves like wind.” He feels that whatever is written down loses its vitality, its basic connection to real life. Furthermore, it renders itself into fixed patterns and empty sentences and becomes oversimplified and generalized. He deeply feels that the world needs to be experienced as it is, as a lived, felt sense without any intention to change it. Developing a stance of acceptance and understanding is one of the core principles in his work.
Family Constellations is typically done in a group setting. However, individual sessions are also possible by utilizing figures to set up a constellation. In hypnotherapy sessions, for instance, constellation work is also a possibility to connect to the knowing field. Sytemic coaching/constellations are also widely used in organizational coaching. Organizational coaching provides insight into the undercurrent of organizations. Business Constellations offer an opportunity to experience the natural balancing forces which influence organizational health to supporting lasting resolution.
Now is the time to understand
That all your ideas of right and wrong
Were just a child’s training wheels
To be laid aside
So you can finally live
With truthfulness and love.
Now is the time for the world to know
That every thought and action is sacred.
This is the time
For you to deeply compute the impossibility
That there is anything but Grace.
Now, why not consider
A lasting truth with
Yourself and the past?

The human soul needs tender nourishment or it withers away. Asleep behind an impenetrable veil, the true essence of existence often hides behind boredom or related symptoms. While observing or participating in art or dance, playing or listening to music or experiencing some other form of artistic expression, the soul can surface momentarily but then retreats to hiding or silence once again. We often equate ourselves with our symptoms as indicated by the statements “I am depressed” or “I am miserable.” When individuals identify with depressive thoughts and feelings they strip themselves of their soul’s true meaning, of the value and joy of their existence. In an instant, self-worth and positive expectancy that change is possible slowly depletes. Yet, it is exactly that very ingredient of hope and positive expectancy that is highly needed in the process of creating lasting solutions. Therefore, it is calming and assuring to remember that our symptoms are not our identity, or our true self, but merely a sign that something deep inside of us is waking up. This awakening can aid a person in escaping from an existence that approximates a vacuum. A mundane life might not be a spiritually rewarding life for an artistic soul.
A marked characteristics of this awakening lies in the strong sensation that these symptoms bring into one’s life. The symptom forces an individual to take a look – a deep look – to awaken the senses. Welcoming rather than denying these sensations can be a primary step towards healing. During this welcoming state observing the symptoms and becoming aware of them is the primary task to enable the understanding of the true self. Just as there are many ways and techniques to play the song Amazing Grace there are also various techniques to relieve symptoms effectively.
One can devote time to meditate each day although the paramount essence lies in making your life a meditation beginning with simple steps that anyone can easily accomplish. Each day, starting in the morning, one can observe their senses during mundane, daily activities.
For instance, while playing feeling the guitar string on the fingertips as the finger presses down on the fret board, feeling the vibration of the instrument, hearing each tone clearly; while in the shower feeling the water trickle slowly down the body, noticing the temperature of the water; while eating paying full attention, chewing food slowly and isolating the taste of the food on the palate; noticing one’s feet on the ground, feeling one’s hands on the steering wheel, listen to all the surrounding sounds, and many more small acts of mindful awareness. Before going to sleep one can consciously bring to mind three things that have worked really well during the day or send gratitude to three people that one has encountered during the day.
The mindful cultivation of these small steps results in increased strengthening of the prefrontal cortex in your brain that adheres to higher order brain functions such as awareness, concentration, and decision making than the activation in the right frontal lobe that activates when a depressive thought is formed. As one begins to perceive the world in a new way novelty is created and novelty is necessary to grow more brain cells and to keep one’s mind healthy. An individual will start to become more mindful and live in the moment. Gentle, daily practice habituates the mind to create new neuronal pathways that make it easier to combat depressive thoughts in the future. Step by step the brain recognizes that there are a myriad of choices to react to stimuli and that the possibility exists to change the tuning at will.
One has to keep in mind that there are many pathways into depression, and at the same time, there are many pathways out of depression. What essentially works lies in the beauty of each individual. Therefore, taking one step at a time is important regardless what therapeutic intervention one chooses. Enlisting the help of a professional in the healing arts may be a first or a second step while keeping hope and positive expectation alive.

“As a practicing licensed professional counselor, I often need to explain that life, not just therapy, is a process. I often need to explain that hearing the stories in my office does not bring me down, rather that I find all stories inspirational because I know that wellness and joy are right around the corner. My life as a psychotherapist has created a clientele in three normally mutually exclusive areas: the psychological worlds of inner and philosophical enquiry that most psychotherapists inhabit, the transformative world of music, poetry, and the arts, and the world of vocation, work and organizational leadership. As the founder of the Jung Wellness Institute I am dedicated to tapping into each person’s world view and talents to support their growth and development”.
I am a licensed professional counselor intern (LPC-I) working in collaboration with a wonderful and highly experienced therapist, Anita Jung (LPC-S). I hold a Masters of Arts in Counseling from St. Edwards University (Austin, TX) and a Masters of Arts in Philology from Volgograd Pedagogical University (Volgograd, Russia) where the main areas of my interests lied in philosophy, literature, psychology, and, of course, languages. I am fluent in Russian and English and can provide services in both languages. For the past year I have been a member of a professional team at Lifeworks (Austin, TX) where I had an invaluable opportunity to provide services to a wide range of clients in both individual and group settings, addressing a variety of intra and interpersonal challenges.
Born in Russia, I have resided in the United States for the past 20 years and over that time have had wonderful opportunities to travel and work with people in many different settings. Prior to making my decision to go back to school and study counseling, I had my own art business where I was privileged to work on various art projects in my client' homes. Often, I found myself entering not only their homes but also their lives, listening to many fascinating stories about challenges they faced or successes they’ve achieved. Pretty quickly I realized that there is a tremendous need for people to be heard and understood and that working with people is exactly what I wanted to do.
I have gained tremendous insight and knowledge over the years working in various professional settings and through years of formal education, but I believe the most valuable learning happens each day through my personal roles of wife for the last 18 years, mother of two beautiful teenage boys, daughter of an inspiring and resilient couple, and friend to some amazing individuals.
I enjoy working with adults and adolescence, addressing a wide range of challenges. I work from the belief that the human body and mind work together and constantly strive to find an inner peace and balance through self-healing. My role as a counselor is to help you create self-awareness, to facilitate the healing process, and to support you on your journey to finding your inner peace and increasing life satisfaction. My approach to counseling is holistic and is heavily informed by new and constantly emerging discoveries in the field of neuroscience. I utilize not only traditional talk therapy in my work with clients but also such mind-body techniquesas mindfulness and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
However, I believe that the relationship I build with my clients is by far more important than any technique I can use. If there is no trust, acceptance, authenticity, and mutual respect in our relationship, there can be no therapeutic change! In my practice I strive to create a nonjudgmental, open, and supportive environment for my clients to deal with their challenges and to find ways to improve the quality of their lives.
Adult and adolescence individual therapy addresses the following challenges through interpersonal therapy and body-mind techniques:
