New clinicians consultation group
Navigating the stresses and challenges of beginning to practice psychotherapy can be helped through a supportive consultation group community. Through case presentations, readings, and group discussions, we will consider such topics as: managing anxiety and developing confidence as a therapist, clarifying one’s theoretical stance and creating a consistent practice, understanding self-disclosure, identity, and boundaries, and learning how to respond to challenging situations. Groups run from September through June and require a three month commitment. Contact for more information.

Working in and with the transgender community
This group is for therapists seeking support and information in their work with gender expansive clients and their families. Our once monthly meetings will include instruction and case consultation addressing such topics as supporting client autonomy, identifying support systems, managing family and community response, recognizing bias, and handling self-disclosure. This group is facilitated by Blue Roth and Carolyn Schneider who bring years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families navigating gender exploration and transition. Sessions are held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on the 3rd Fridays of the month from October through June. Please contact Blue at for information.

Deepening a client-centered practice This group is for post graduate clinicians with prior training in client-centered / person-centered theory seeking community to develop their non-directive practice. Our once monthly meetings will include time for case consultation as well as discussion of theory. We welcome individuals in private or group practice as well as agency settings, and focus primarily on adolescent through adult age populations. Groups are led by Susan Pildes, LPC, Carolyn Schneider, LCPC, and Marge Witty, Ph.D., each of whom bring over twenty-five years of client-centered teaching and practice to their work with you.
