Kerstin Schoen – CEO, lead practitioner, teacher
Kerstin Schoen is a practitioner, teacher, and facilitator in energy healing with over 15 years of experience in the field. She currently serves as the president, business owner, lead practitioner, and teacher for Reconnective Therapy (RCT), the innovative energy-oriented healing modality founded by Herwig Schoen.
Born and educated in Austria, she attended the Karl-Franzens-University Graz, Austria, and completed her Master’s degree in Counseling at the University of New Mexico. Her studies focused on the conscious creation and alignment of core values including lifestyles, health, and goal-oriented internal work. She is experienced in Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, spiritual counseling, and crisis intervention, especially with children, adolescents, and family units, and is trained in mediation.
In 1997 she started her in-depth training in energy medicine in Europe. In 2004 she began her training in RCT and started work as a Child Life Specialist at the Presbyterian Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which taught her to bridge the physical and metaphysical worlds to serve people in crisis. In 2008 she started working as an RCT Practitioner and has facilitated healing throughout the world through the use of energy. She served as RCT’s executive vice-president and, in 2014, she created and headed up an extensive applied program to train practitioners in RCT in various countries. She also teaches Internal Practice at speaking engagements and in group work.
Her passion lies in supporting and educating others about the possibilities that lie within each person so that they can manifest their highest potential — physically, emotionally, and mentally. Although Kerstin is an experienced healing arts practitioner, she is not a physician, psychotherapist, or other licensed health care provider in the United States. She is now based in Langley, Washington, in the United States.
