The Rev. Dr. Weiss, a native of Scranton, PA, is a psychotherapist, ordained minister, and professional musician whose work is based on a wellness model that integrates mind/body/spirit throughout the life journey. She specializes in working with women in spiritually-based counseling and retreats, mind/body/spirit medicine, personal growth, creativity in healing, and stress management. Her holistic approach has evolved from over thirty five years of professional experience as a clinical social worker, college music teacher, and ordained minister who served in the capacity of pastor and university chaplain.
In addition to graduate degrees in social work, theology and music, Dr. Weiss was trained in the use of music in depth therapy and is a Fellow and supervisor in the Association of Music and Imagery. As a specialist in mind/body medicine, her training includes EMDR, Mindfulness- Based Stress Reduction, and the use of the expressive arts, guided imagery and hypnosis in treating physical and emotional disorders. A special component of her work is facilitating groups for people with life-threatening illnesses as well as for chronic pain and stress management.
In private practice since 1991, Dr. Weiss was also the co-director of the Holistic Mental Health Division at the former Center for Integrative Medicine in Clarks Summit, PA. She currently maintains a private practice in Northeast Pennsylvania that emphasizes optimal living and wellness. In addition, she is a retreat facilitator, workshop leader and consultant. Dr. Weiss resides in the solitude of the woods outside of Lake Ariel, PA with her husband, Tom Kulesza.
