CURRENT GROUPS:

My psychotherapy groups are conducted from a self psychological and relational perspective. My conception of group therapy is a developmental one in which members incrementally begin to engage at deeper and deeper level of as a result of learning to empathically understand the issues of fellow group members. All my groups begin with a ten minute meditation which invites members into a centering experience both within themselves as well as in forming connections with fellow group members. The meditation provides a transitional space in which deeper connections are fostered among all present. This approach fosters an atmosphere of introspection and extrospection that translates into greater ability to understand the experience of the other--this can be described as a process of metallization put forth by Fonagy and others.


FUTURE/PLANNED GROUPS:

Groups are formed based on the needs of current patient populations as well as referrals from other therapists who do not do group treatment.
