In the first year (5-weekend workshops) training program, you will learn and practice Focusing and how to bring Focusing deeply into your life and clinical practice. You will gain access to the rich inner wisdom that unfolds as you find Presence in your own life, and then how to facilitate a Focusing-Oriented approach to healing with others. Those wanting to complete the full year program will need to commit to the next four workshops of the five workshop series.

Year Two: Advanced Focusing-Oriented Therapy and Complex Trauma
The second year (5-weekends) of the program teaches you how to effectively and safely work with embodied, vicarious, and multi-generational trauma while continuing to deepen your Focusing-Oriented therapy and healing skills. Trauma will be explored through the
understanding of neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, mythology, and native spirituality.
For those who want to further their study and experience, I offer certification in cooperation with the Focusing Institute. Details at
