If you are an NPI member and wish to share information about a professional or therapy group, please complete the following form (a complete list of therapy groups can be found at the bottom of this page):

If you are like me, you work in isolation. No one sees your work, good or bad. You can’t talk about your clients to anyone. The burdens you carry from your therapy relationships weigh you down. A colleague consultation group is a place to share your burdens, laugh at the absurd notion that you can rescue your clients and enjoy a good meal and a good time with your colleagues and perhaps learn a thing or two from others about the art of psychotherapy.   You are invited to apply to become part of a semi-weekly case consultation group. Six people will be selected from those who apply. You will be asked to commit to attending for three months. To apply, simply send me an email with your email address, phone number, a brief paragraph about yourself and a response to this question:  Why would you be interested in becoming a part of this consultation group?

WHEN: Non-NPI Fridays 11:30 – 1:00
WHERE: 115 28th Avenue North, 37203
COST: Cost of lunch order from Newks

Holiday Group for Eating Disorders/Disordered Eating
This group is for anyone (18 and over) who is in the process of recovery from an eating disorder or disordered eating. This group aims to provide tools and support for participants to navigate the holiday season. They will learn and develop skills, boundaries, body-centered/mindful techniques, and coping plans, to implement around holiday specific situations, triggers, and people.  The group will also provide a place for participants to practice what they learn, before implementing it in real time.  Group begins on Tues November 7, 2017, from 6p – 7:30p and will be facilitated by Corey Emerick, LPC-MHSP, C-IAYT.  Group end date will be finalized on first day of group, once participant needs and goals are established (it is estimated that group will last 6-8 weeks).
