As psychotherapists we thrive when we continue to study our craft, share our work, and get support and guidance from fellow clinicians. What do you want to learn and nurture in yourself this year?
Fall 2019 LPCA Supervision / Consultation Group begins August 15th
Who for: LPCAs working toward licensure
Meeting time: Weekly on Thursdays at 1:15pm.
Meeting place: Group Room at Pamela’s office at 390 Merrimon Avenue.
In a warm, supportive environment, Associate clinicians explore issues related to effective treatment of their client cases, as well as issues related to personal and professional development. The group approach is grounded in an attachment and psychodynamic frame, with an emphasis on increasing members’ clinical effectiveness through understanding the influences of countertransference, projective identification, and the therapist’s own history. We will work to help members appreciate their clinical strengths and expertise, and examine those areas that are clinically challenging. There will be assigned readings on clinical technique from a Modern Psychoanalytic perspective, and we will spend time each group exploring these in the context of the members’ casework. Although this all sounds quite serious, we value the chance to relax, not-know, connect, laugh and be irreverent in this group.

About the Supervisor
I’m a seasoned, psychodynamically trained therapist and have been treating individuals, couples and groups since 2009. 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. 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, which combines beautifully with what we now understand about attachment, interpersonal neurobiology, and affect regulation. These are key elements that inform my work. Throughout my career I have also continued to take care of my own mental health and to further develop my clinical expertise. Most of my ongoing training has been in Modern Psychoanalysis through the Colorado Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies, The Center for Group Studies in NYC, the American Group Psychotherapy Association, various reading and consultation groups, and individual consultation. 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.
