    "Who?" she asked.

    I didn't know much about Jung myself, other than that he was Freud's disciple and that he believed in the collective unconscious—that everyone shares a common underlying system for organizing experience—but then, she was the one charging $300 an hour, not me. She was right: I was skeptical that she could help me. Or perhaps I was looking for reasons not to have to change.
