Jean Pieniadz, Ph.D.
Clinical Psychologist - Doctorate
I work with adults, using psychoanalytic psychotherapy approaches, with the following concerns:
- family life-cycle events and life-span developmental transitions
- couples/relationship issues
- couple and family adaptations to traumatic brain injury and stroke
- supervision for licensed psychotherapists
I maintain a full-time practice in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, and am a Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry in UVM’s College of Medicine, supervising psychiatry residents, graduate students, and established professionals in the field. I am also a founding,and current, faculty and board member at the Vermont Institute for the Psychotherapies (VIP), a two-year psychoanalytic psychotherapy post-graduate certificate program.
I received my B.A. from Clark University, and worked for a number of years as a researcher in Neuropsychology at the Boston V.A. Medical Center. I completed my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Vermont, and have been a licensed psychologist for over 33 years. I have been an adjunct professor at the University of Vermont, St. Michael’s College, Trinity College, and Southern New Hampshire University. I completed four years of post-graduate coursework in psychoanalytic psychotherapy from the Jewish General Hospital, Montreal, Quebec, and completed a four-year psychoanalytic training at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP), in New York, NY, in 2006.
I have conducted research and published in developmental psychology, neuropsychology, feminist pedagogy, and ethics.
I am co-author, along with Polly-Young-Eisendrath, of a book on couples therapy, which was published at the end of 2021: Dialogue Therapy for Couples and Real Dialogue for Opposing Sides: Methods Based on Psychoanalysis and Mindfulness (London: Routledge, 2022). I conduct Dialogue Therapy for couples with my co-therapist, Joel Shapiro, LCSW.
I am licensed as a Psychologist—Doctorate in Vermont and in Michigan.
