MSW, LCSW, ACSW, BCD, LP Washington University in St Louis. Alan’s interest in Gestalt therapy coincides with his 45 years of meditation practice. He studied with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi over the course of four years, before beginning his post graduate training in Gestalt therapy. “I see the two approaches as complementing and supporting each other in their focus on awareness, the present moment, and acceptance of what is, as the basis of moving into the next moment. I am particularly interested in the curative and healing value of one’s own presence.”
Alan has been practicing psychotherapy for 40 years, and has been providing clinical supervision and training therapists as faculty and Clinical Director of two institutes for 35 years. Alan also has been Distinguished Visiting Faculty at professional training conferences in Switzerland, Poland, Greece, Hungary, and Slovenia, training mental health professionals from around the world.
