Joli earned her doctoral degree at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Depth Psychology with a specialization in Jungian and Archetypal Studies.
Joli is a professor of psychology and faculty at the Institute for Sexuality Education and Enlightenment, where she teaches intimacy and communication skills, kink and BDSM for educators and therapists among other courses.
Joli chose her graduate school specifically so she could develop modern sexuality research through the lens of mythological and archetypal perspectives. Adding the depth psychological perspective to sex education is an innovative way to peel back the layers of sex, identity, and desire to reveal what our dreams and fantasies are telling us about our innermost self.
Joli is a psychologist whose life has always revolved around teaching in non-traditional settings. Rather than working on what is “wrong” in a situation, Joli approaches every question and emotion with an attitude of curiosity, looking for the ways she can help you to find your own answers, providing practical, well-researched support for your personal exploration of sexual and relationship issues at every step of your process.
