Joan Lavender

Psychologist, Psy.D.

I am a psychologist and psychotherapist with over thirty years experience as a clinician, supervisor, writer and presenter. Three elements that distinguish my work are the emphasis on Experiential Process (which has been shown to be an essential factor in the psychological change process) and the appreciation of Relational experience (the client's significant relationships, as well as our relationship, of client and therapist.)
My initial training in dance therapy has taught me that nonverbal behavior can be a path inviting us to a deeper exploration in sessions.
