Hello. Thank you for visiting my site. I named this website Imagining Forgiveness because I embrace the notion that forgiveness is crucial for our future together on this planet and because I have made the study and practice of forgiveness part of my life’s work.

I would like to tell you a bit about myself. I am currently a core faculty member and the Chair of the Integrative Therapy and Healing Practices Program at Pacifica Graduate Institute. It is one of the Depth Psychology specialization programs. Previously, I served as Director of Clinical Training for the Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute (www.pacifica.edu).  You may read more details about this program at https://www.pacifica.edu/degree-program/integrative-therapy-healing-practices/ I am very excited to be in a leadership position in this exciting, cutting edge program. It is a program that blends the traditional wisdom of depth psychology with exploration into how multidisciplinary and expanded frameworks may offer a beautiful synchrony of present day understanding.  You may reach me for any questions about this program at my Pacifica office at (805) 679-6139 or my email address at Pacifica, which is jrohdebrown@pacifica.edu.

I also spent some years at Antioch University, Santa Barbara, where I served as an educator, the Director of Practicum, as well as the Interim Chair of the Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology. Prior to that, I taught Theories of Personality and other courses for a number of years in the Liberal Arts program at Brooks Institute of Photography for photography, photojournalism, and film-making students.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY 20964). In addition to my work in education, I have a small psychotherapy practice. My orientation is integrative and I ground myself in a Humanistic-Depth-Transpersonal perspective in my work and life. Jungian and Post-Jungian concepts inspire me as do the arts and meditative practices and traditions.

I am not currently available for seeing anyone new in my private practice, as I am keeping my practice quite small while I attend to my work at Pacifica. However,  I know of many gifted psychotherapists in the area and I would be happy to provide you with referrals. If you are interested in contacting me, you may call me at (805) 856-8005 or email me at the encrypted, thus confidential, address of drjrohdebrown@hushmail.com. In addition to, and completely separate from my psychotherapy practice, I am fortunate to have the distinction of being part of the first cohort of certified interspiritual mentors through the Spiritual Paths Foundation http://www.spiritualpaths.org. I also meet with people in this capacity, which is not therapy, but companionship along the path of deepening questions and commitment regarding spiritual practice.

I have spoken about forgiveness and related topics in international and media venues. My book Imagine Forgiveness: A Guide for Creating a Joyful Future is available at a variety of venues.  Guided visualization CDs and/or downloads are available at https://zenmusic.biz/guided-meditations and other sites as well.

I dedicate my work in the world to my brain injured brother, John, as he has been my greatest teacher in life on many levels.

In my leisure time, I enjoy walking in nature, singing and writing songs, reading, writing, watching good films, therapeutic abstract painting, contributing to meaningful causes/organizations, connecting people together who may not otherwise meet each other, contemplative photography with my iPhone, and being with loved ones.

I hope that reading this page and perusing my presentations/publications page have given you an opportunity to get to know me a bit. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about you should you wish to contact me.

    Hello Juliet, I know you won’t remember me, but I remember you! We were classmates from 1972-1975 at Chaminade. I lived in the Dormitory all three years and attended USD in1975. When I think of those years, you always come to mind, because of the joy you gave me watching you’re incredible talent and singing ability, in plays, like My Fair Lady and others. I have recently been revisiting my old stomping grounds and taking pictures of Chaminade and my college in San Diego, and recently visited Santa Barbara and Solvang. It’s beautiful up there. I’m now an independent business owner in the travel business, which is affording me many more opportunities to travel. I wasn’t surprised to see all you’re accomplishments in life, but again am thoroughly impressed. It’s been 42 years, thanks for the memories, sincerely John McCarthy

    It is so nice to hear from you, John! Thank you for your kind comments! Those were such wonderful days to be able to play all those parts and to sing and such. How nice that you are in the travel business! You probably travel to some exotic and interesting places. I live and work in the Carpinteria area. My sister, Nancy, lives up this way as well and Joe and Mel have a second home in Ojai. Joe is, of course, traveling around quite a bit still with Disney. Hope to see you one of these days. drjrohdebrown@gmail.com (805) 856-8005.
    Warm Wishes,
