I have been in private practice in Austin since 1990. I love leading groups. I lead two long-term weekly adult psychotherapy groups for people looking to have more satisfying lives and more successful relationships with others. Group members are often in individual therapy first, then eventually add group treatment to their work. Many of my group members stay for many years, the group serving as a life-giving source of connection and personal growth.
I also enjoy training other group therapists. I have led many process groups for the American Group Psychotherapy Association (AGPA) Annual Meeting. Over the years I have created a variety of study and case consultation groups for other therapists in Austin. I have trained therapists in many interesting parts of the world, including Russia, Hawaii, and Nashville.
I have been a member of several groups myself, for many years. The best training for group leadership comes from being a group member, and I have experienced much personal and professional growth from participating in weekly, bi-weekly, and quarterly therapy and supervision group experiences.
I am a Fellow of the American Group Psychotherapy Association and a Diplomate in Group Psychology with the American Board of Professional Psychologists (ABPP). I am a Faculty member with the Center for Group Studies in New York City.
