Bree Greenberg, LMFT, has a passion for creating individual, organizational and global creative liberatory change. She is the founder of the former Vermont Center for Integrative Therapy which opened in 2010 and was one of the first mental health centers to combine ancient systems of healing interwoven with current cutting edge systems of care. She is known for her dynamic speaking presence and her ability to weave disparate elements into new forms that change view, conversation, and care. Bree is an adjunct faculty member of Dartmouth Medical and has spoken extensively at institutions, hospitals, conferences, and universities on topics in integrative medicine, eating disorders, and addictions. She has trained and supervised over 150 practitioners from disciplines ranging from internal medicine to yoga therapy.
About the Vision
Bree has created a bio-psycho-social-energetic model which centers addiction and addictive patterns within the context of a larger societal and epigenetic inheritance.
Addiction decontextualized from diagnosis is comprised of patterns of survival and compensation. Originally appearing in relationship to trauma or forced oppression, addiction repeats within lineages and is supported by western societies. The chasm that is formed and carried through lineage will continue to “sing out” the lack of wholeness until resolution is created through liberating bound life force and reweaving the inner system to be in alignment with honesty and rootedness.
This model offers the opportunity for that alchemy to take place through strategic scaffolding, de-programming, somatic and nervous system rewiring, transpersonal liberation work, and conditions that support and facilitate movement and rooting.
This is not easy work. The patterns run deep and have been mistaken for self identity and a distorted form of belonging, sometimes for many many generations. But models that only attend to the containment of behaviors and thoughts create opportunities for the roots to pop up in different forms repeatedly, offering the illusion of change but never resolving the core divisions or conflicts.
This model offers healing but frames even healing as part of a larger movement towards recalling, reclaiming and wholeness. It most simply offers the way back to essential nature individualized and collectively.
