Valerie Lorig, M.Ed., LPCC, NCC has studied and practiced Buddhist mindfulness methods for over thirty years. Her work as an educator and therapist join mindfulness and awareness methods with psychology, exploring how the mind and body work together, or how they don't! Valerie has taught at Naropa University since 1993 in contemplative education, mindfulness awareness meditation practices, and contemplative psychology courses. She has a private therapy practice and enjoys facilitating groups and workshops on relationships for the 18 to 30 something crowd, as well as women's empowerment groups. As a contemplative psychotherapist she trained in Hakomi, an experiential and body-centered therapy, EMDR trauma therapy, Brainspotting trauma therapy, Gestalt, and other contemplative and cognitive modalities. She graduated with a M.Ed. in Counseling from Colorado State University and BA in Transpersonal Psychology from Burlington College. She studied with Naropa University's founder, Trungpa Rinpoche and continues to practice and teach Buddhist and Shambhala dharma.
