As psychotherapists we thrive when we continue studying our craft, sharing our work, and getting support and guidance from fellow clinicians. What do you want to learn and nurture in yourself this year?
4:30pm on alternating Tuesdays at 390 Merrimon Avenue
Who for: Both early career and more established therapists.
Meeting time: Twice a month on Tuesdays at 4:30pm.
Meeting place: Meeting Room at Pamela’s office at 390 Merrimon Avenue.
Grounded in an attachment and psychodynamic frame, we recognize that behaviors and feelings that give us and our clients trouble are repetitions of things learned in the past, often when we were very young, with little, if any, language. We pay special attention to our countertransference reactions, as they tell us so much about what we need in order to take care of ourselves as clinicians, as well as so much about what our clients’ unconscious (preverbal) needs are. We’ll also pay special attention to emotional communication – methods for using feelings and words to provide maturational experiences for our clients, in addition to insight oriented interventions. I’ll provide optional readings on clinical practice, do some didactic teaching, nurture safety for group members to explore what’s most challenging in their work, and maintain consistent structure to ensure everyone has the opportunity to present their work. Humor and irreverence are welcome in this group.

About the Supervisor
I’m a Licensed Professional Clinical Supervisor (LPCS) as well as a Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP) , and I’ve been supervising clinical work individually and in groups since 2015. I’m a seasoned, psychodynamically trained therapist with a big appetite for lifelong learning. I have extensive training and ongoing consultation in modern psychoanalysis, attachment and modern drive theory, group psychotherapy, and meditation and mindfulness. I love supporting new and established clinicians in developing their own unique approach, and engaging in conversations that build confidence and enjoyment in the work.
