A certified bioenergetic therapist has 4 years of training, 3 plus years of personal therapy, and 60 hours of supervision. With 30 years experience with bioenergetics, and 40 years practicing and teaching mindfulness, as well as my training in gestalt and hypnotherapy, I can draw on a variety of methods to suit what each person needs at that moment.
My professional background includes supervising the Intensive Outpatient Program at Mercy Recovery Center, owning my own training, consultation, and counseling business, and supervising psychiatric and detoxification units for a community mental health center. My background also includes a co-founding a cooperative Montessori school, and founding Cypress Tree Zen Center, where I also served as abbot. I have studied with therapists trained in Gestalt, bioenergetics, hypnosis and psychodrama and with teachers of zen, vajrayana and vipassana traditions, as well as tai-chi and qi gong.
