I’ve been treating individuals, couples and groups since 2009, and providing clinical supervision/consultation since 2015. A Master’s graduate of Naropa University, I have a long history of studying and teaching mindfulness, meditation and Buddhist Psychology. I have extensive and ongoing postgraduate training in Modern Psychoanalysis and Group Process, which are key elements that inform my work. Most of my ongoing training has been through the Colorado Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies, The Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Group Studies in New York City, the American Group Psychotherapy Association, various reading and consultation groups, and individual consultation.

I am a Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP) through the American Group Psychotherapy Association. I draw on over 10 years experience in leading groups and 6 years (and counting!) as a member of Modern Psychonalytic groups myself. I am licensed in North Carolina and South Carolina and I lead four in-person groups in Asheville, North Carolina, as well as a Zoom group for group members in the North Carolina and South Carolina region.

Modern Psychoanalysis is a “theory of technique” which adapts well to all models of psychodynamic conceptualization and attachment theory. Modern Analysis and Group Psychotherapy combine beautifully with what we now understand about attachment and how unconscious patterns become embedded in character structure and can be released through therapeutic relational processes. The primary focus of this approach is to facilitate emotional communication and immediacy, and to work through repetitious feelings via interpersonally alive interactions over time. This process is prized for its effectiveness in facilitating whole-person emotional integration, freedom to choose, and maturity.

*I’m pleased to offer this new Zoom group. This is a wonderful opportunity for those who want to do group work, but don’t have access to a group locally. I meet with group candidates (by Zoom) between three and six times individually before group begins. This gives us a chance tor get to know one another, and prepare you for the group experience.
TIME: This group will begin on Thursday, April 16th, and meet weekly. Sessions are 80 minutes in length.
