Ricki Geiger is an experienced psychotherapist with decades of experience in the Triangle, located convenient to the Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Durham, and RTP areas on E.

Are you feeling anxious, depressed, or stuck in painful emotions and uncertain about how to
Whether short term brief therapy or long term psychotherapy, I can help you unravel your issues, move to awareness and understanding and support you in growth to make the choices and changes you desire.
Does your relationship lack luster? Has communication broken down and you feel alienated or misunderstood? Over 37 years, I have successfully helped many dozens of couples bridge stuck emotional divides; speak the unsayable, heal resentments and rekindle love. As well, I help couples separate if that is best for both parties. Please call for availability.
As a Certified Group Psychotherapist, I recommend group as an adjunct to individual psychotherapy when a client can benefit from the psychodynamic interaction with others. Giving and receiving feedback from peers enhances one’s view of themselves, provides normalizing, repair and hope qualitatively different from individual therapy.
Together, we will explore behaviors, feelings and thoughts that overwhelm you, most often adapted in childhood to deal with difficult, less than optimal family environments. With a knowledge base of psychoanalysis, self-psychology and trauma-stress related theory you can begin to replace self-blame, self-loathing and self-alienation with self-caring and compassion. It is from self-compassion, that internal changes to negative thinking dissipate allowing for the possibility of more joy and a happier life.
Consultation & Training
I offer individual and group supervision for individual, couples and group psychotherapy to therapists from a variety of disciplines. I provide decades of knowledge, support and direction from a psychoanalytic, object relations, modern analytic, relational self psychology perspective. Free 15 minute consultation provided.
I CAN HELP!
If you are struggling with feeling unimportant, defeated, angry, stuck, hopeless, disappointment and other bad feelings…or you and your spouse/partner are having problems communicating or lack zest in your relationship I can help you unravel difficult issues and bring about meaningful change.
Together, over time, we can explore your conflicts and difficulties, both current and past, that create suffering and unhappiness. Feelings of self-blame, self-doubt, helplessness, self-sabotage and feeling undeserving can transform into self confidence and successful relating.
