Trained Professionals – Commitment and Compassion
The Windhorse staff of team supervisors, psychotherapists, team leaders, assistant team leaders, basic attenders, and housemates are contemplatively oriented in their clinical training and perspective. They are skilled in providing a ground of mindfulness and awareness in supporting clients in developing healthy habits and patterns of daily living; eating well, sleeping well, exercising and engaging in meaningful activity.
Most senior team members hold Master Degrees in Psychology and Social Work. Many of the clinicians do have their Master Degrees from the Naropa University Contemplative Psychotherapy Department. All of our clinicians participate in on-going Windhorse trainings and supervision. Housemates are most often graduate students who are chosen for their maturity, personal warmth, and wholesome lifestyle.
Team members are chosen to work with specific clients based on compatibility of style and relevant training and experience. The training and experience of staff is comprehensive and involves both ongoing self-reflection in relationship to mutual recovery. All staff have the belief that clients hold intrinsic health and wellbeing and are capable of achieving significant and meaningful recovery from schizophrenia, bi-polar, autism, and other disorders. In addition, all of our staff shares a commitment to seeing their clinical work as a path of lifelong learning.
