New Beginnings Counseling Center is pleased to welcome Ann Marie Plane to its Board of Directors.

Plane is a cultural historian and practicing clinical psychoanalyst in Santa Barbara. She has served on the faculty at UC Santa Barbara since 1994.

She has longtime interests in the historical experiences of Native Americans, and her current research explores dreams and visions as they reveal the processes of colonization in 17th-century New England. It was this research project that led her, in the late 1990s, to seek out psychoanalytic training, which ultimately led to completion of a Psy.D. degree at the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis in Los Angeles.

During her training, she completed a year-long internship at New Beginnings Counseling Center and served her first term on the board, from 2002 to 2004.

Plane has a small private practice in Santa Barbara, and is a training and supervising analyst at ICP in Los Angeles. She is a former Erikson Scholar of the Erikson Institute at the Austen Riggs Center in Stockbridge, Mass., where she participated in twice-weekly case conferences, psychological testing seminars, community meetings and workshops.

She brings an awareness of cross-cultural perspectives to her clinical work, and has enjoyed her long association with the New Beginnings Counseling Center in Santa Barbara, especially its outreach to low and moderate-income clients.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
