Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program–My Amazing Year Long Adventure in NYC

Synchronicity. It all started with a radio program. Two years ago, I heard Donna Karan (DKNY) speaking to Dr. Oz about the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program she had started to address key patient symptoms of PANIC–PAIN, ANXIETY, NAUSEA, INSOMNIA, CONSTIPATION AND EXHAUSTION. She said, “When my husband Stephan was sick with lung cancer, it became clear to me that our current healthcare model treats the disease, but fails to treat the person.” She caught my attention! This is the work I have been doing for the last 18 years. I had to get connected with her groundbreaking program!

The more I found out about Donna Karan and the Urban Zen Programs (www.urbanzen.org) the more I KNEW that I had to be a part of this! Last spring I applied to the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program and was accepted! I committed to the year long training not having any idea of how I would possibly travel to NYC once a month for the coming year. I showed up in April of 2011 filled with excitement and gratitude for this unbelievable opportunity. The past year has been a whirlwind of hard work, new challenges and pure delight. I am in love with NYC! Truly the perfect life, one week a month in NYC and the rest of the time living at the base of the foothills in colorful Colorado. I am so blessed and grateful for all of the amazing people I have met at Urban Zen and most of all, I am so pleased to be able to bring all of these powerfully effective skills back to my work here in Colorado. I am in the home stretch. I graduate as an Urban Zen Integrative Therapist on March 18, 2012! This program has deepened my commitment to my work treating each person as a unique individual and to bringing them the best in Integrative/Holistic Medicine. Pretty soon you can call me a UZIT (use it) and I am proud of it!
