Susan McBride, RN BA MTS RSW, worked as an emergency room RN dealing with physical and emotional crises. She obtained a B.A. in Psychology and worked at a children’s mental health agency helping parents deal with crisis situations with their children. An interest in spirituality led her to complete a Masters's in Theological Studies. She has been working in private practice since 2002 using Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Gestalt therapy, EMDR, Imago Relationship therapy, and, along with her partner, Mark Cornfield, psychiatrist, running Imago weekend workshops for couples. 

Susan certified with GTT as a Holotropic Breathwork facilitator in 2005 and has continued to facilitate monthly HB workshops. Recently, Susan and Mark have been involved in using Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy for individuals as well as couples and have been facilitating Ketamine Learning Experiences for psychotherapists and physicians.

He is trained in Imago Relationship Therapy, EMDR, and Holotropic Breathwork™. More recently he completed Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) training at the Orenda Institute, and also with Dr. Phil Wolfson.
