    Clinical Supervision

    I offer a Clinical Group Supervision for LMSW’s on Mondays at 12:00pm to 1:30pm. We focus and work together on using integrative mind-body, trauma-informed, relational, attachment-based, and more experiential emotion-focused psychotherapy approaches. All inquiries are welcome.


    3-Hour CEU Workshop:

    An Introduction to AEDP

    I also teach a 3-Hour CEU Introduction to AEDP course which I am offering, both in the community to mental health clinicians, and academically. The next workshop is scheduled for Friday, March 31 at 9:00am to 12pm EST.

    If you work with trauma this workshop has a different approach that complements some of the more standard technique-based approaches such as EMDR. It is not for the faint of heart…it will cause you to examine some of your core beliefs about what creates healing. It is rooted in the neurobiological capacity of the brain to rewire in the warmth of the therapeutic relationship. If you are interested, check it out or pass it along to someone who might be.

    SCTI Special Topics: The Transformation of Suffering-An Introduction to Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy


    Southern Counselor Training Institute is excited to announce the first of a series of specialty continuing education seminars for 2023. This special topics series will focus on exploring themes that relate specifically to the healing power of the therapeutic relationship post Carl Rogers and the humanistic tradition. Contemporary research grounded in attachment theory and neuroscience is expanding our understanding of how people change in exciting and challenging ways. If you want an opportunity to think outside of the box from traditional approaches to change, come join us!

    Our first lecture, The Transformation of Suffering-An Introduction to Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, presented by Dr. Karen Tantillo, reflects the integration of the head and the heart in the therapeutic process. Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is a healing-oriented, attachment-based and experiential mind-body psychotherapy that is effective in addressing relational and attachment trauma, engendering resilience, and enhancing a sense of well-being and flourishing (Iwakabe et al, 2022).

    AEDP translates current neuroscience into moment-to-moment clinical practice that can lead to transformational change. In this workshop, the conceptual framework of AEDP’s healing-oriented transformational model will be shared along with excerpts of clinical videotape that demonstrate specific AEDP strategies and interventions. An opportunity to practice aspects of AEDP, ask questions and reflect on learning will be provided.

    By the end of the training, participants will:

    1. Identify 3 components of the theoretical model underpinning AEDP practice.

    2. Identify at least four key clinical concepts of the model and the therapeutic stance of AEDP

    3. Explore the phenomenology of the 4 States and 3 State Transformations of AEDP

    4. Practice aspects of AEDP in a structured experiential exercise with an opportunity for reflection and “meta-therapeutic processing
