Manhattan Beach, CA – “Most therapists talk about trauma. That’s what they work with,” says Dr. Marjorie Rand. “What I talk about is wellness. I’m interested in wellness and how you can be your best self, your optimal sense of self. That’s why I work with the integration of mind body and spirit.”

A psychotherapist for nearly 40 years, Dr. Marjorie Rand is considered a pioneer in the field of somatic psychotherapy, a holistic form of therapy that embraces the powerful connection between body, mind and spirit. Dr. Rand studied at the famed Esalen Institute and through the Association for Humanistic Psychology and the Association for Transpersonal Psychology.

“It was the time of the hippies,” recalls Dr. Rand. “I was studying with all these remarkable people on the vanguard of psychotherapy. I never realized I was in the midst of a historical moment in the field. Now I’m told by people that I’m a pioneer, an elder of the tribe because I studied with all the original people.”

Dr. Rand is perhaps best known as the co-author of the seminal Body, Self and Soul: Sustaining Integration published in 1985 with Dr. Jack Rosenberg, which explores Integrative Body Psychotherapy.

“The focus of my work is body, mind and spirit, using somatic psychotherapy and meditation,” says Dr. Rand. “But it’s not just about integrating body, mind and spirit; it’s about sustaining that integration.”
