About Dr. Stadtner

Picture of Rebecca StadtnerMy interest in the ways that relationships influence individuals and vice versa, is what ties together my various experiences in the field of counseling psychology, from my days as a student therapist in training through the present. This interest has influenced everything from my choice of research topics, to the parent classes and workshops I lead, to the way I practice individual and marriage counseling, and especially to my extensive training in group therapy. Nowhere is the reciprocal influence of individual and relationship more clear than in group therapy. Group counseling holds tremendous potential to speed up and to sustain individual growth. For this reason, much of my post-graduate education has focused on group therapy, which remains a central part of my current psychology practice, along with my work as an individual and family counselor, marriage therapist, and leader of parenting classes.
