Bay Area Gestalt Institute (BAGI) is a unique and diverse community of psychotherapists and interns, rooted in a lineage of Gestalt teachers and practitioners, and committed to living the values we teach.

Our mission is to promote healing, aliveness and authenticity in our communities and society at large by teaching and providing Gestalt psychotherapy.

Our work takes shape through:

  1. Offering affordable quality psychotherapy to the San Francisco Bay Area community.
  2. Facilitating personal growth and professional development for psychotherapy interns through Gestalt trainings and supervision.
  3. Providing Gestalt education to the professional community and to the community at large.
  4. Modeling a collective, non-hierarchical example of community interaction and decision-making that honors differences and nurtures aliveness in relationship to self, other, and the world.
