About Doree Lipson

Doree Lipson is the founder and director of Wellness Embodied, a center for psychotherapy and healing. After working for most of her career in agency settings and seeing the disconnected struggle between wonderful mission statements and poor management and clinical support, she began cultivating the vision of creating a healing center. At the heart of Wellness Embodied is the desire to support and nurture our psychotherapists and other healing providers so they can then do the same for those that choose our practice as the home for their transformative work.

Doree is a licensed clinical social worker with a masters degree in social work from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Doree graduated with a focus on adolescents and families in 2003 and has been working with adults, adolescents, families and couples since that time, both in Michigan and New York states. Doree received her undergraduate degree in English literature from State University of New York College at Fredonia. 

In addition to her clinical training, Doree has been a student of Soto Zen Buddhist teachings and practice since 1996. Doree is lay-ordained in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi. She has taught meditation in both college and private settings. Mindfulness is one central component to the clinical work she does with her patients. 

Above all else, Doree strives to find a practical balance between using the tools necessary to function optimally in the day to day while compassionately understanding the life experiences that have created the habituated stuckness that often brings people into treatment. Doree works with a gentle and loving relational approach, focusing on the body as the home for our stories and also the gateway to new experiences. She has a special affinity and love for bridging the personal and spiritual aspects of our life's journey.
