PSIP certification: Level 2 Certificate of Completion

Dr. Matt McClanahan is an osteopathic physician doubly boarded in Family Medicine & Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine, w/ a masters in exercise physiology. In 2018 he founded the Center for Insight Medicine, which takes a neuroscience approach to the Dx & Tx of chronic pain, functional disorders, central sensitivity syndromes, & medically unexplained Sx. Many times, when Sx persist despite testing & Tx, it's because neuroplastic changes in the brain are amplifying, perpetuating, or causing them by a persistent threat/danger response in the brain & autonomic nervous system, often due to unresolved stress & trauma in our past & present. This is the primary target in the work of recovery through PSIP and these neural circuits can be reversed. Dr. Matt is experienced with Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT), Emotional Awareness & Expression Therapy (EAET), & Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), in addition to usual biomedical interpretation and pharmacotherapeutics.

Alyssa Nelson.jpg
Alyssa Nelson | Minnesota

Licensed mental health provider: Yes

Type of License: LICSW

PSIP certification: Level 1 Certificate of Completion

Who we are is forged in the context of our earliest attachment relationships. Within these relationships we can be wounded, and develop unhelpful patterns and habits that we tend to repeat; the familiarity of these old patterns can feel comforting in some ways, even as they simultaneously cause discomfort and dysfunction in our lives. Therapy can provide an opportunity to heal and grow in the context of a healthy relationship, where the past and present can be explored to gain insight and help us break free of the habits keeping us stuck.
 

My approach to therapy is informed by the psychoanalytic perspective, which means a focus is placed on increasing self-understanding, deepening awareness of emotions, and identifying themes. Together we will explore your past and present, and we’ll be curious about your thoughts, feelings, hopes, dreams, fears, and conflicts to try and make meaning of them. The goal is for you to feel better and live your life more fully and freely.

In the desert of the heart
Let the healing fountain start - W.H Auden

Therapy was not my first career. I began as a student of creative writing (poetry) and literature, and taught literature and writing as a grad student. However, I found my home in clinical social work— work which taps into my understanding of the role of the creative imagination in representing emotional experience through narrative and imagery.

I’ve had more than 18 years of experience providing therapy to individuals, couples and groups. In addition to my training with the Psychedelic Somatic Institute, I bring experience and training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, EMDR, Brainspotting, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Dance Movement Therapy, and the Adult Attachment Interview. My work is relational, client-centered, somatically and affectively focused. I aim to “show up” as a person in my own right, since I believe psychotherapy is an activity between two people, working together.

Hello - I’m Matt Stella, and my goal is to reconnect you to the wisdom and depth in your life that make all problems workable. In fact, the worst symptoms and problems that we wrestle with often hold the seed for growth and transformation.

I use EMDR and PSIP to address and heal the effects of trauma, abuse and neglect for adults of all genders.
My 2nd Masters degree is in Process Work: a Jungian holistic method (mind-body-spirit). This approach is my passion because it offers a way of delving into the 'trouble' at hand that is deep, efficient, transformational and surprisingly creative and fun.


My practice is LGBTQ-affirmative, and welcomes diversity of all kinds. I provide telehealth options, or in-person sessions in my Salem, Massachusetts office which is wheelchair accessible. If you feel we might be a good fit, please be in touch. I will be honored to help.

PSIP certification: Level 1 Certificate of Completion
 

My approach to therapy includes traditional cognitive behavioral therapies blended with somatic and shamanic healing.  As a practitioner, I believe in walking with my clients as they become responsible for the creation of their experience.  This is not a simple task and takes significant effort as this path requires the mastery of your impulses, emotions, and body.  Please note that for some protocols, insurance does not currently reimburse. I also require consultation for some of the more intensive methodologies as they require certain foundational elements in your life to be established before engaging in them otherwise the benefit will be null.

A life long interest in the source of human suffering has been my personal journey. I have been a life-long meditator, starting a practice at the age of 12. This path has led me down both psychological as well as, spiritual developmental frameworks. I began working with expanded states of consciousness through plant medicines in 2009. The natural progression led me to supporting individuals on this path of self-exploration and self-realization. My encounter with PSI and its framework has provided further assistance in working with the human psyche and guiding people along their paths of healing and liberation. I have also completed training in Hakomi Therapy as well as, training in Ketamine assisted psychotherapy. Prior to making this work my focus, my career was as a physician/surgeon for 30 years. I am originally from Lebanon and have lived in multiple countries throughout my life.

PSIP certification: Level 2 Certificate of Completion

I'm a Licensed Physiotherapist and Psychotherapist working in private practice and as a traumatherapist at WONSA (World Of No Sexual Abuse), in Stockholm, Sweden.

My ground level education to become a Psychotherapist was in Transpersonal Psychology and I’m also a Trained AEDP-therapist. I’ve been working in the bodymind field for 25 years.

My own most significant trauma was when I was born prematurely with c-section. I had been able to some degree to contact that Trauma before PSIP, but never to fully experience it and embody that part of me before. I love this method for finally letting me bring home this precious part of me, previously hidden in dissociation.

Daniel Kim | Los Angeles, CA

Licensed mental health provider: No

Type of License: N/A

PSIP certification: Level 2 Certificate of Mastery (PSI Instructor)

Daniel (SEP) works with developmental trauma, attachment trauma, and Complex PTSD through a somatic and relational lens. Over 9 years of working with various psychedelic medicines emphasized to him the necessity of integrating the body and the therapeutic relationship to effectively resolve complex trauma.



His passion for PSIP is fueled by his own depth of healing he received within this model. During his training, he experienced a profound reparative experience around an early attachment wound he was unable to access despite previous psychedelic retreats and years of somatic therapy. This led him to fundamentally shift his private practice and understanding of trauma resolution.

Daniel offers in-person and online sessions in Los Angeles and has started his PSI Instructor training.

Licensed mental health provider: Yes

Type of License: Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

PSIP certification: Level 2 Certificate of Completion

As a yoga therapist, psychotherapist and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner- I work with people as multidimensional beings to support liberation as a practice of unraveling our conditioning.

I combine Somatic Experiencing with breathwork to build a bridge between the subconscious and conscious mind - the implicit and the explicit - allowing longstanding patterns to emerge and be supported, held and felt in a new way - in relationship with the loving witness and the vast web of relations.

I use PSIP grounded in my somatic training with the intention of feeling our conditioning but this time with kind eyes. The renegotiation is relational and the work is to go into the conditioning with a loving witness and the felt experience that this time you are not alone.
