Paola Biola trained as a Jungian
analyst at the C.G. JUNG Institute in Zurich, receiving her diploma in
Analytical Psychology in 1992. Her thesis, The Patriarchal Woman: The Problems
of Identity and Self-worth in the Contemporary Woman, showed how seduction
by the collective patriarchy can damage the feminine soul.
Prior to becoming
an analyst, Paola received a Masters degree from Goddard College, where she focused
on womens experience of relationship problems from father loss, whether
through death, divorce or emotional abandonment. Her thesis was entitled, Beyond
Father Loss: The Absent Father and Possible Effects on the Personality Formation
of the Daughter.
A graduate of the Foreign
Service School at Georgetown University, Paola worked in international
business for over fifteen years. As an executive with multinational corporations,
she traveled widely in Latin America, Europe, and Africa. She also started a business
which she managed for many years.
Today Paola has a private practice in an old farmhouse in Harpswell,
Maine, where she lives with her dog, Allie, and a cat named Maya. In addition
to her work as an analyst, Paola enjoys exploring faraway places, folk art, gardening
and the company of good friends.
