Dr. Mark Forman, PhD is a licensed clinical psychologist with extensive experience working with C-level executives and managers, addressing both individual skills development as well as addressing the psychological complexities of work and workplace relationships. This competence is grounded in Dr. Forman’s 25 years of experience conducting therapy with individuals, couples, and families.

Dr. Forman is also a sought after expert, speaker, and lecturer, having taught at multiple universities across the San Francisco Bay Area and undertaking a six-year professorship at John F. Kennedy University in their department of Integral Studies. In this role he was also three times the Lead Organizer of the Integral Theory Conference, 500-person events which focused on the academic development and practical application of Integral Theory across a wide variety of domains. He has also been a guest on several dozen podcasts, covering a range of issues such as the relationship between psychotherapy and spirituality, trauma and recovery, and gender and race issues in therapy.

Mark has written two very well-received texts. The first, a professional, academic text – A Guide to Integral Psychotherapy Complexity, Integration, and Spirituality in Practice – is one of the first books to practically apply Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory to the domain of psychotherapy. His second and most recent text – The Monster’s Journey: From Trauma to Connection – is a creative reimagining of the Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey archetype for those who have suffered early childhood trauma. It is a book meant first and foremost for clients who are trauma survivors.

Dr. Forman graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Delaware with a degree in philosophy and religion. He is a long-term practitioner of yoga, reiki, martial arts, and meditation. He has trained in a wide variety of therapeutic settings and with a number of different clinical populations over the past two decades. His areas of training in psychotherapy include Integral-developmental, Jungian, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, multicultural, transpersonal, trauma-based, and attachment-based psychotherapies.
