Workshops & Education

We offer nature-based workshops and retreats to the general public that incorporate nature-based therapy processes.

We also offer continuing education programs for MFTs, LPCCs, LCSWs (and for some programs, PhD’s and RNs) grounded in the principles of Ecopsychology.
Holos serves as a unique leader in ecopsychology educational programs for both the licensed professional community and for environmentally aware individuals.  We often host an Ecopsychology Conference that draws together a rich group of environment aware professionals.

Our Ecopsychology Certificate Program is now available as 4 distinct modules that may be taken individually or by completing all 4 for the certificate.


Holos Institute is dedicated to providing affordable, holistic therapy to the communities of the Bay Area. We offer high-quality, compassionate care on a sliding scale to adults, children, teens, couples, families and groups.

Our therapists are exceptional clinicians who have been carefully vetted.  They are very experienced, advanced-level, post-graduate Marriage and Family Therapist interns, supervised by master therapists with many years experience. Our intern therapists express a range of healing modalities and offer an integrative approach to healing.
