Carolyn Bliss Branson

My medicine comes from feeling and sensing—trees, water, air. Ground. Becoming still, I can sense the Loving Presence that is all around us. I feel its support and resonance.

In my work as a psychotherapist, I strive to create a sanctuary for deep listening so that people can sense the Presence that lives in them. In this place of mindful listening, people come to befriend different parts of themselves, including parts that have been exiled or disowned.

The work we do here at Riverbird Clinic is another kind of deep listening. Entering nonordinary states of consciousness, people reconnect with their own healing intelligence and often find new ways to navigate difficult passages. Although such experiences do not replace the patient, ongoing work of long term healing, many of our Riverbird clients report shifts in perspective that help them remember their essential wholeness.
