Ron Zambetti, MFA, MA

Pre-licensed Psychotherapist

Ron received his Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Psychology in Vermont, from Johnson State
College in 1988, and was later awarded the Terminal Degree of Master of Fine Arts from the
University of Utah’s Fine Arts Conservatory in 1994. Following a period of travel and work
abroad, Mr. Zambetti attended The Naropa University in Boulder Colorado where he was
conferred the Clinical Degree of the Master of Arts in Contemplative Psychotherapy. He then
attended the Avalon Institute, also in Colorado, where he completed a more than 2 and ½ year
intensive study and practice of Jungian Archetypal Psychotherapy. While at Avalon, he also
trained in the clinical applications of: Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy,
Dream Analysis, and Breathwork from diverse clinical perspectives.

Ron later became certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (E.M.D.R)
toward continued development of somatic approaches for working with trauma, and soon after
engaged in doctoral studies at the Union Institute and University, then based in Cincinnati.
During this time, he continued to research Eastern breath practices (pranayama) and worked
toward integrating these into Western clinical approaches in Breathwork, drawing from the
historical work of well-known, Western Breath and Analytic practitioners.

Ron’s perspective expresses that, the use of many diverse methods and models for treating
emotional and psychological difficulty, allows greater access to a variety of individuals and their
needs. His clinical approach reflects that, in any therapeutic process, both therapist and client
enter into an alliance to awaken their innate and essential authenticity. His approach echoes the
idea that, in engaging the “authentic” or “deeper self”, one’s highest potential might be utilized
toward creating emotional balance.

Over 20 years, of experience as a Psychotherapist have provided Ron insight into working with
clients who have experienced: Emotional Trauma, Post Traumatic Stress, Anxiety, Panic
Attacks and Depression. He has worked with individuals who struggle with: Addiction,
Substance Abuse, and Major Mental Health Disorders, and provides therapy for Adults, Teens,
