Daniel Schiff PhDSomatic Psychotherapy Training                

Welcome to my website.  I am a psychologist and educator with over 45 years of clinical experience helping individuals and couples who are experiencing chronic or acute emotional distress, suffer from stress related somatic disorders, or who find themselves living a life without passion or intimacy. Currently I provide clinical supervision and training for health professionals (psychologists, licensed professional counselors, clinical social workers, naturopathic physicians) and give public lectures and seminars on issues related to emotions, emotional health, psychotherapeutic practice, Reichian and Gestalt therapy and somatic psychology. In the pages that follow you will be able to find out more about courses, trainings and lectures I have offered in the past and training opportunities available at this time.
