The Wisdom Therapy Institute offers the Bay Area community a model of psychotherapy that integrates the best practices of Western psychological science and Eastern traditions.
The Wisdom Therapy Institute, founded by Shani Robins, Ph.D., houses both a psychotherapy practice and a corporate consultancy group. For the past decade, Wisdom Therapy has been empirically shown to be a practical and effective method for significantly reducing anger, anxiety, depression, phobias, and increasing well-being, mindfulness, Humility, health, and enhanced communication.
At the Institute, licensed therapists, interns, and trainees are matched to individuals, couples, and families based upon the needs and preferences of the clients. We run multiple support groups, workshops, and classes.
The Institute includes a teaching and research facility that offers a wide range of clinical services on a sliding scale based on income and need. We help our clients develop awareness of their thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and body, and the skills to enhance those and reduce stress, pain, and suffering.
Organizational and corporate applications of Wisdom Therapy have demonstrated significant decreases in work related stress and conflicts; and increases in satisfaction, productivity, and long term loyalty to one’s work group and company. The Institute offers conflict resolution, stress reduction, anger management, emotional intelligence, and Mindfulness Meditation services.
The Institute also serves the legal community by conducting the psychological testing and assessments for several county courts.
Wisdom Therapy integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Mindfulness Meditation, and the conscious cultivation of Humility. It facilitates the wisdom and skills we might otherwise obtain in later life, but can use now.
Empathy, compassion, and acting in the client’s best interests form the core of our therapeutic and consulting approach, as well as the education of our interns and trainees.
The main office of the Wisdom Therapy Institute is located in Palo Alto, California. We serve clients across the United States and throughout the world.
