studies and teaching have included meditation and shamanic practices for the
past 35 years. In 1985 he became a licensed psychotherapist, (Licensed
Marriage and Family Therapist), integrating the wide scope of his work with
individuals and groups. In 1990, he founded Holos Institute, a California
non-profit corporation in which he trained and supervised intern therapists
focusing on bringing together spirituality and psychology and the study of
ecopsychology. In January of 2004 he moved from the Bay Area in California
to the Hudson Valley, New York.
He has been on the faculty of the California Institute of
Integral Studies, John F. Kennedy University and the Institute of
Transpersonal Psychology, teaching approaches to the treatment of addiction,
group psychotherapy, Jewish Mysticism, and the integration of
psycho-spiritual development with social/political involvement.
As part of his work with ecopsychology, Alan leads groups
into the wilderness on Earth Quests for healing and vision. In his work,
Alan integrates awareness of modern research in psychological studies with
ancient wisdom teachings. His approach opens doorways to the soul's calling
that arise in everyday, practical life experience.
Alan's therapy work is for individuals, couples, families
and groups. Please call for a no-charge phone interview to explore the
