ASHER PANDJIRIS

Psychotherapist/ Podcaster/ Group Facilitator
Virgo Sun/ Cancer Rising/ Sagittarius Moon

I am thrilled to be hosting a podcast and facilitating a program intensive on topics that I feel deeply passionate about. Tara Brach talks about the importance of “feeling felt” and it is my hope that Living in this Queer Body can provide some of what we all long for… the pleasure and relief of being more fully known.  

I am a queer, white, non-binary (she/her/her pronouns) parent. I am an art-maker, an activist, a psychotherapist a podcaster, a group facilitator. I am someone living with auto-immune based chronic health issues. I am a scholar of critical, psychoanalytic and mindfulness based theories. I chase the sun whenever I can and have a small dog named Pickle. I currently reside on Lenape land in Brooklyn, NY and want to keep this in the front of my mind more often. 

I received a Masters of Arts in Visual and Critical Studies in 2007 and a Masters of Social Work from Smith College in 2013. In 2017, I completed a certificate program at The Stephen Mitchell Center for Relational Studies. Additionally, I served as the Program Director at Balance Eating Disorder treatment center and have years of experience working with issues related to trauma and its impact on the body. I have published on the topics of intergenerational trauma transmission, the treatment of eating disorders, sexual assault in the music industry and gender dysphoria. 

If you live in New York State or Internationally, and have an interest in weekly psychotherapy sessions, I occasionally have openings in my small private practice. Please find more information at: asherpandjiris.com
