***Starts March 24***


Narrative healing invites us to reflect upon and retell our story, promoting positive change in our lives. By reflecting upon our experience of recovering from illness, trauma or injury, we deepen our understanding and skill in returning to wellness. Learning to work with Narrative Healing is a powerful tool for increasing resilience and developing healing resources.

What our students are saying

  • In my practice, clients usually share their life stories, which is often a very effective way to start a healing process. However, after the initial sharing, it can be challenging to shift the client to focused learning and healing. This class was very effective in helping me learn how to help the client take this next step in their healing process.

  • Dr. Kreisberg is compassionate, caring, discerning and direct. He tunes into the moment and allows his ever-expanding field of experience to guide him to the most powerful questions and/or courses of action. He is highly adaptive and continually seeks to improve himself, his teaching style and us!

  • There is a richness and complexity to this approach that is unique to this coaching program. Dr. Kreisberg was highly organized in the way he designed and ran the class. He presented the principles and methodology clearly and dynamically. I came away with new perceptions, approaches and tools that will benefit my clients. I feel newly inspired as I move forward with my coaching work!

We’re not just COACHING,

We’re HEALING too!

The Narrative Healing Difference

  • Move from ‘one size fits all’ to a customized approach.
  • Rather than focusing on measurable outcomes, engage the whole person. 
  • Reframe the healing story by building resources–don’t just reduce symptoms.
  • Rather than relying on purely positive interventions, embrace strengths and limitations.
  • Move beyond  ‘aha’ insight to embodied, lasting change.



Our mission is to develop coaches who work with life stories in a way that leads to deepening relationship, transformational learning, and authentic healing. 

Our vision is a community of health professionals who engage the skills of narrative healing, promoting deep lasting change in individuals, organizations, and the communities in which we serve.
