About Bree:

Bree Greenberg-Benjamin, the founder and director of the Vermont Center for Integrative Therapy, holds a masters degree in Counseling Psychology with a specialty in Marriage and Family Therapy. Additionally, she has been teaching yoga and incorporating it therapeutically for over 10 years. Her therapeutic interests have focused on integrative treatment for Eating Disorders, Trauma and Addiction. Bree has presented at numerous conferences and events nationwide on topics including; the use of yoga in therapy, spirituality as a healing tool, and energy medicine. Bree is also an adjunct professor at Burlington College in Burlington, Vermont.

The founding of VTCIT was predicated by Bree’s pioneering work in the treatment of eating disorders. Aware that more traditional approaches concern themselves merely with the metrics of symptom reduction, Bree endeavored to find a more effective and compassionate way to treat the condition. Employing a multifaceted system that engages clients in a more total way, Bree developed the Pratyaagati (Journey Home) program based on her 10 plus years of using yoga and meditation creatively in therapy with clients struggling with eating disorders. The Starving Heart is intended to build upon those teachings. Learn more about Bree here.
