The Meadows trauma and addiction treatment center is sponsoring a free lecture in Scottsdale, Arizona on Tuesday, August 21 given by Gretchen Friedlander, LPC, on the topic of “Getting Out of the Hole in the Sidewalk: The Drama Triangle.” It will be held at the Franciscan Renewal Center from 7:00 to 8:30pm. It is open to the public and no registration is required.
Friedlander has a law degree from the University of North Carolina and a Masters of Counseling from Arizona State University. She has been in the counseling field for seven years and has trained with Pia Mellody and Claudia Black. In addition, she worked as a primary and family counselor at The Meadows Wickenburg where she worked extensively with families whose loved ones struggled with anxiety, depression, or a host of addictions.
“I began my private practice to be able to support people more directly with Somatic Experiencing and EMDR, as their holistic approach meshes well with my desire to support wholeness in mind, body and spirit,” said Friedlander.
