BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Eisendrath serves as chief psychologist and president of the Institute for Dialogue Therapy, P.C., where, as a Jungian analyst, she offers psychotherapy with individuals and couples, psychoanalysis, supervision, and training.

Dr. Eisendrath also serves as clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the Medical College of the University of Vermont, where she teaches and supervises psychiatric residents; clinical faculty and founding member of the Vermont Institute for the Psychotherapies, where she teaches and supervises mental health professionals; and member of the Special Task Force on Psychoanalysis and Spirituality, Division 39 of the American Psychological Association. She previously served as president of the Vermont Association for Psychoanalytic Studies and clinical supervisor for pre- and post-doctoral interns at the Norwich University Counseling Center.

In 1969, Dr. Eisendrath received an A.B. in English, with distinction (summa cum laude), from Ohio University. She received her M.A. in psychology and mythology in 1974 from Goddard College, her M.S.W. in clinical social work from Washington University in 1977, and her Ph.D. in developmental and counseling psychology in 1980 from Washington University, under the direction of Jane Loevinger, Ph.D.

As a psychologist, Jungian psychoanalyst, and author who teaches and writes directly from her own experience and practice, Dr. Eisendrath has published fifteen books and numerous chapters and articles, and her work has been translated into more than 20 languages. Her forthcoming books are True Love Ways: Relationship as Psycho-Spiritual Development and Enlightenment and Idealization: Buddhists and Psychoanalysts Talk About Disillusionment on the Path to Awakening. She also hosts the nonprofit Enlightening Conversations Series, which sponsors conferences between Buddhist teachers and prominent psychoanalysts.

Dr. Eisendrath became a Zen student of Roshi Philip Kapleau in 1971, has been a student of Shinzen Young since 1998, and is a mindfulness and dharma teacher in the tradition of Shinzen Young. She says, “I regard the practices of mindfulness and compassion to be necessary for authentic development in psychotherapy and spiritual practices of any kind.”
