Regarding Tarot: Dr. Rosengarten has been a practicing psychotherapist in California (MFT) since 1981, and a licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY 11016) since 1989. His clinical work is primarily with individuals and couples, and his areas of expertise include addiction, Jungian psychotherapy, relationship issues, and personal growth. Dr. Rosengarten is among the leading scholars of modern Tarot in the world. He is also one of only a few psychologists worldwide to have thoroughly researched, published, and successfully implemented psychospiritually-based Tarot card readings within his private psychological work, as a supplemental tool utilized at critical points in a person’s growth not unlike dream analysis. Dr. Rosengarten wrote the first accredited doctoral dissertation on Tarot as a method for accessing the unconscious, and is a true pioneer in the emerging discipline. Readings set up through this website are always 100% guaranteed to be personally relevant and useful to the querent, or your charge is immediately refunded, no questions asked.

Individual Talk Therapy provides an excellent avenue for self-reflection, dealing with present crises and unforeseen developments, complicated circumstances and psychic pain; it can be useful for sorting through, developing coping-strategies, processing difficult emotions, and reframing dysfunctional thoughts and behavior patterns into realistic and effective responses.

I believe the degree of trust and rapport we develop together is crucial for successful outcome.
Couples Therapy entails building upon a sense of the “us” to bring greater harmony in our togetherness. What may serve one person in a relationship may or may not serve the other (or the relationship itself), even though we ourselves benefit. This is where problems and breakdown occurs most often and must be investigated in a safe context for both individuals to present their differing points of view earnestly. Read more…
Jungian psychology informs the spiritual dimension of my therapy practice. While the base of our work together will be talk therapy, I use a range of additional techniques that fall under the general rubric of “Active Imagination” which are founded on the following assumptions about the nature of the human psyche: 1. That deep in the unconscious there is a natural wisdom, given the proper conditions, for the psyche to heal itself through images 2. When energies in the form of “living symbols” are touched upon in the personal and collective unconscious, healing can happen spontaneously at an unconscious level. 3. As a more harmonious relationship between the conscious and the unconscious develops, the ego is restructured and strengthened. These assumptions form the basis of my work with both Tarot and Sandplay therapy. For those not familiar with other Jungian ideas, here’s an overview:
Meditation and mindfulness practice teach us how to refocus on present-centered awareness (see Demo) to cut through reactive emotional and habitual thought patterns which hinder skillful action and obstruct our ability to see situations clearly. I have practiced meditation for over 40 years and instructed many people during therapy on basic technique. Read more…

Psychological Tarot engages intuition to seek deeper spheres of psychological life and enrich self experience and awareness. It can be incorporated into therapy sessions as a supplemental technique like Dream Analysis or Jungian Sandplay therapy; tarot “readings” can be requested for a single session or in a series of three readings over perhaps two months.
