More About the Author
Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D. has been a practicing psychoanalyst for over thirty-five years. As a psychoanalyst, Dr. Goldberg has specialized in working with cancer patients and has successfully integrated her psychoanalytic work with the field of mind/body health. She has worked with many cancer patients who have defied the odds and attribute their success in combating the disease to their work with her.
Recently, Dr. Goldberg has become particularly interested in the brain, and has put together a series of classes of exercises that stimulate the wide-open land of the new-born brain, the race-horse feature of the adolescent brain, and the wise and mature (but sometimes forgetful) aging brain.
In 1986, Dr. Goldberg founded La Casa Resort Spa, located in the Puerto Rico rain forest. She was persuaded by her resort guests to open a NYC facility so that they could continue their mind/body work there as well, and in 1993 Dr. Goldberg opened La Casa Day Spa in the flatiron district of NYC, now the oldest spa in New York.

Goldberg, Volumes I-IV: Vol. I: Psychoanalytic Writings, Vol. II: Whole Health Writings, Vol. III: Autobiographical Writings, Vol. IV: Imaginative Writings (to be published); Because People Are Dying; The Inner Lives of Mothers; Princess Diana: Modern-Day Moon-Goddess; The 5 Elements of Healing; Insparations (if you can do it at a spa, you can do it at home); The Dark Side of Love (the positive role of our negative feelings); Deceits of the Mind (and their effects on the body); and Psychotherapeutic Treatment of Cancer Patients.
