Hartford Family Institute (HFI) has been a cutting edge Psychotherapy and Training Center since 1969. The Psychotherapy created and practiced here is a combination of in-depth body emotional work, energy healing, shamanic spiritual healing and trauma work. It is called HFI Body-Centered Psychotherapy and is often referred to as HFI THERAPY. Hartford Family Institute has evolved into Hartford Family Institute’s Center for Psychotherapy & Healing Arts, (HFI), which provides this unique psychotherapy and counseling, but also offers healing in many other therapeutic modalities. All practitioners at HFI share a common belief in the healing effect of aligning our energy. We also share a common vision and concern for people’s emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. HFI training programs, under the direction of the founding partners and associates, include certification programs, advanced psychotherapy training for established counselors, therapists, healers, and practitioners in the healing arts, a master’s degree, as well as a full range of healing and psychotherapy modalities. We have expanded over the years to become a community of five Partners, four Associates and many Independent Practitioners. In addition to our primary location in West Hartford, CT., the Founding Partners have educational and training sites in Kansas City, MO. and New York. For 21 years we also had training programs in Germany.
