Alexis Johnson, Ph.D. After receiving my PhD in clinical psychology, my training continued in Humanistic and Transpersonal philosophies and methods at Esalen Institute. I have also studied and taught Core Energetics, family systems, self-psychology and Object-relations. Inspired by and grateful for Buddhism and Winnicott, my work is about finding that creative spark in each dilemma or story that leads to choice, possibility and freedom. While enjoying my many roles as student, teacher, therapist, spiritual seeker, writer, wife, mother, step-mother, friend and gardener, I realize the humor and absurdity in trying to balance them all.

My recently published book, “Introduction to Key Concepts and Evolutions in Psychoanalysis: Freud to Neuroscience”, is now available on Amazon.

Judith Sarah Schmidt, Ph.D.After earning my doctorate in clinical psychology, I did post-doctoral studies in Object relations and studied Waking Dream Therapy with Collette Muscat in Jerusalem. As an imagery, dream and trauma therapist, my work is inspired by Winnicott, Jung, and Buddhist and Jewish spirituality. I integrate depth and imaginal psychotherapy and the restorative language of the body. I cherish those sacred moments that arise like surprises from the creative core of wholeness and bring healing.
