I am an experienced marriage and family therapist and psycho-educator who is dedicated to helping adults grow psychologically and spiritually.

Darlene Viggiano, Ph.D. (MFT) has been practicing psychotherapy since 1999, with her most recent years in her own telehealth private practice. In her previous capacity at Kaiser Permanente, she served Adults Molested as Children, Intensive Outpatient Program participants, the severely and persistently mentally ill, the dual diagnosis population, patients in need of skills such as anger management and socialization, and many others. She has also provided mindful movement practices, dream-work, and hypnosis. She earned two employee awards during her career at Kaiser. Dr. Viggiano also has held membership in CAMFT, APA Division 30, the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, and the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis. She earned her Ph.D. in psychology at Saybrook University in 2010, and thereafter earned the APA Division 30 Early Career Contributions to Hypnosis Award. She currently serves as a telehealth therapist for Californians and a psycho-educator for Hawaiians.

Darlene is also Part-time Faculty at Saybrook University in California, having taught Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced Hypnosis, and most recently having sat on dissertation committees as the Literature Review reader. She is author of Dreams and Dream-like Experiences: Their Role in Spiritual Emergence Processes (Lambert Academic Publishing, 2011) and Carrying On: A Workbook for Women Who’ve Lost a Pregnancy (Lambert Academic Publishing, 2010). She developed an online course about hypnosis for John F. Kennedy University and taught psychology at the University of Phoenix. She has published nearly 40 articles and a chapter on topics within the fields of consciousness, psychology, spirituality, mental health, and integrative medicine. Her publications on mind-body medicine have led her to present workshops in states from California to Nevada and Hawaii. She has served on the Dissertation with Distinction selection committee, and on other culmination project committees at both Saybrook and the California Institute of Integral Studies.

Her full curriculum vitae is available on both LinkedIn and Academia.edu
She also has a Facebook page.
