Frances Rinaldo M.A., M.S., L.M.F.T.
1015 Cedar Street - Suite B
Santa Cruz, CA
USA 95060

Phone: 831-440-9349

Between September 1992 and November 1996, I trained with Dr. Jonathon Christie and Dr. Arthur Janov at Dr. Janov’s International Primal Training and Treatment Center in Venice, California. I offer a holistic approach to Primal, working with you to mitigate the effects of original “Primal” traumas while simultaneously helping you to function and improve your quality of life in the present. This preempts the tendency to “wait for the next feeling” to change one’s self destructive or otherwise unwanted behavior and accelerates healing. I work with individuals, couples, families, children, and adolescents. I also offer film consultation (MA Cinema Production U. So. California ). See my website for more details.


IPA Members Offering Primal Work

Claude Breault, Ph.D.
369 Boisseau
Québec, Québec
Canada G1K 1S9

Phone: (418) 522-5957

Primal center providing access to a specialized primal room called a vibroacoustic lodge. Using auditory and vibration stimulation, this lodge triggers past traumatic experiences and facilitates Deep Feeling Release. This new process should be used cautiously within psychotherapy. In addition, clients have to be supervised by a psychologist or other clinical professional. Free trial is offered to familiarize yourself with such an efficient tool. These relived experiences follow primal tradition by bringing the person directly to his primal pain, liberating its intensity session by session. For those who want to get there, here’s a powerful tool.

I offer a safe & loving container for people to unfold and heal in their own way and time. With a background in primal integration and mindfulness practice, I facilitate both individual and group work. My background includes apprenticeship training with Sam Turton as well as other teachers in modalities such as the vision quest, ecstatic dance, meditation and consciousness exploration. Through a holistic approach to well-being, including deep emotional release & integration, clients are able to find more clarity & presence. My work in the fields of community building, nature connection and attachment parenting are assets in cultivating a broader sense of wholeness.

I work in private practice in North-East London, and offer coaching and spiritual mentoring as well as Primal Integration therapy. My chapter on Primal Integration is still up on the IPA website.
