Al Pesso and Diane Boyden-Pesso

Dr. Levang uses several modalities in his work with clients.  Central to these are Pesso Boyden Psychomotor Psychotherapy (PBSP), a method that goes beyond talk therapy by focusing on meeting deep-seated, life-giving needs.

Albert Pesso and Diane Boyden-Pesso, originally professional ballet dancers, used their knowledge of movement in the body to develop PBSP.  Their method of therapy was based on the years they spent observing how human emotions were expressed in body action and in speech. They wanted to understand, not only how emotional feelings become behaviors, but how one perceives those emotional expressions. That is, those involved in the interaction. From those beginnings, the Pesso’s  developed a large body of techniques, theories of human interaction, and a process of emotional re-education. 

At its very core, PBSP explores what it means to be human – biologically, psychologically, sociologically, philosophically, and spiritually.

PBSP is practiced around the world and is a highly regarded therapeutic process. It yields freedom from one’s history while opening vistas of personal growth, contentment, and productivity. 

Dr. Levang is one of a handful of certified trainers in the United States. He has studied and provided PBSP therapy for more than 20 years.
