I enjoy working with people who have been successful in their fields and yet have come to an impasse in how they think of themselves in terms of self esteem and self respect. The people I work with often question the significance of their lives and how loved they are by friends and family. These doubts often have their origin in their birth families and can be helped by an in-depth understanding of their role in their families.
I specialize in group psychotherapy for adults who are experiencing anxiety and doubts about their lives. My groups create space for deep work on early childhood re-decisions that lead to greater personal satisfaction. My therapy group for therapists is a rich context in which clinicians can reflect on the meaning of their lives in the presence of peers.
I have had the opportunity to work and collaborate with some of the founders of both group and family therapy (Virginia Satir, Don Shaskan, Fred Ford) and Joe Fabry, a close associate of Viktor Frankl, a founder of existential therapy. I love sharing with you the wisdom I have gained from these pioneers.

We focus on dream work and family of origin exploration, incorporating practices of Gestalt, Psychodrama, Redecision Therapy, and Group Analysis.

Members share their rich experiences and insights with one another to produce a sense of cohesion and group identity. The group becomes a place where therapists can enhance the joy in their lives.Therapist interns welcome. Led by Bill Roller
