Dr. Hava Schaver is a clinical experiential psychologist and a 25-year pioneer in mind-body therapy. At a time when the connection between mind and body were not yet accepted by the mainstream medical community, Dr Schaver displayed the courage of her convictions by implementing one of its earliest programs. Now she believes that recent neuroscience research findings are connecting some of the loose pieces of the mind-brain body puzzle, shedding greater light by bringing live images of and from the brain. Her unique expertise lies in bringing mind-body experiential therapy to multimedia products to enhance relaxation, wellness, personal power and peak performance in life.
Schaver holds a Ph.D. in Experiential Clinical Psychology from Union Institute in Cincinnati. She also holds a psychology and education specialist degree from The Center of Humanistic Studies in Detroit, a Master’s Degree in Social Work and a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan. Dr. Schaver is a Diplomate of the Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress and has taught graduate psychology students at the Center for Humanistic Studies. She is currently an adjunct on doctoral committees and a supervisor of clinical psychologists. She maintains a private practice in metro Detroit and is co-owner of ZeevArts, LLC, which creates multimedia products and programs promoting stress relief and enhanced quality of life for private consumption and for industry.
