AEDP Institute

Miriam Marsolais, PhD

Miriam Marsolais, PhD, is a licensed psychologist and Jungian Analyst in Berkeley, California.  She served as AEDP Faculty from 2014 until  2018, when she transitioned to her current role as AEDP Faculty Emerita & Supervisor. In addition to her private clinical practice, Dr. Marsolais provides supervision to therapists wishing to train in AEDP and the certified AEDP therapists on the Supervisor Certification track.  She also hosts and leads retreat-style AEDP group supervision weekends in the beautiful natural setting of The Sea Ranch on the northern California coast.

As a young adult Dr. Marsolais performed as a violinist, was a nun and taught high school science and mathematics. Following a near-fatal burn injury, her life took a major turn and her passions were redirected towards the study of history, psychology and Eastern mind/body practices.  Dr. Marsolais is inspired and challenged by AEDP’s dynamic, integrative clinical approach and is grateful to have found her professional home in the AEDP community. She is deeply engaged in extending AEDP practice into the domain of the sleeping self through relational andphenomenological work with dream experience.  Through this work, she is exploring new pathways to healing from early relational trauma and PTSD. She is also exploring the resonances between AEDP and East-West mind/body practices, and how integration of these traditions with AEDP can enrich AEDP practice, training and supervision.
