Luna Cottage, Verona Island, ME

I am now at Luna Cottage on Verona Island one week a month. While there, I am:

  • providing workshops for mental health & health care professionals 
        (CLICK HERE for information);

  • offering a consultation group

  • offering individual clinical supervision/ consultation;

  • offering mindfulness and compassion retreat-type programs. 

I think the location is ideal for people living in Belfast, Bangor, Ellsworth, Blue Hill, Castine (all about 18 miles away) and other towns in the region.
