Body-centered Psychotherapist (with a heart-centered, psychospiritual orientation).
Also a Writer and Workshop Leader/Speaker
I have practiced heart-centered, body-centered, psychospiritual therapy for nearly two decades in the Boston Area. I founded the Institute for Emotional-Kinesthetic Psychotherapy in 1990. My interests include trauma work, integrating sexuality and spirituality, mentoring the soul’s journey and creating healing community. I have worked with gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people for most all of my years in practice, as well as members of various sexual subcultures. I am the founder of the Boston Area Sexuality and Spirituality Network, a staff writer for Spirituality and Sexuality magazine, and author of LIVING WITH VISION: RECLAIMING THE POWER OF THE HEART (Knowledge Systems, 1989) and HEALING THE WAR BETWEEN THE GENDERS (Forthcoming). I have led workshops nationally and internationally and public speak on a wide variety of subjects including gender and identity, gender reconciliation, heart-centered healing and social evolution.
My Degrees: I hold a Master’s Degree in Organization Development from the Sloan School, MIT. I studied Psychobiology at Yale in the late 70’s, prior to the availability of body psychotherapy training in any university setting. I have been a pioneer in the field of somatic psychology, helping found the first state professional association in Massachusetts in 1989, helping found the Somatics Community within the Association for Humanistic Psychology while serving on the AHP Board, and through establishing a 3 year apprenticeship training program in Emotional-Kinesthetic Psychotherapy (EKP)–the method I developed and have practiced since 1985. My school certified body-centered psychotherapists who completed the 1000+ hour program.
