is a marriage and family therapist in private practice in Santa Monica, Calif., and executive director of the Rosenberg-Kitaen Integrative Body Psychotherapy Central Institute and the 12 IBP International Institutes. She is coauthor of The Intimate Couple.
The primary focus in this Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP) couple’s workshop is an awakening in body and mind that can lead to an integrated sense of self, presence, constancy, and well-being. With this heightened limbic capacity, couples can establish an energetic, loving bond of connection and attunement. When an energetic/emotional bond is not established or felt, disappointment can turn into boredom, irritation, and problem seeking.
