In 2006, during the Psychotherapy Networker Symposium in Washington, D.C., attended an Introduction to Mind-Body Medicine workshop, led by Dr. James S. Gordon, the Director of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine (CMBM). At the end of the session, Jim encouraged Sabrina to take the Center's certification training. Sabrina responded with, “I am really searching for a doctoral program, and will not be pursuing any more certifications until I find one!”
Four years later, she received an e-mail from The Center for Mind-Body Medicine, announcing its affiliation with Saybrook’s School of Mind-Body Medicine degree programs. “My heart sang, while reading that e-mail from Jim”, Sabrina recalled, “Every cell in my body knew that I was headed to this program!”
