About Us Menu:     Lee Nagel, PhD   J. Eva Nagel, PhD
I have been fortunate to have a few moments of revelation in my life. During exciting time of first independence and immersion in the educational community at the University of Rochester, I came under the guidance of mentors who showed me the healing power of psychotherapy and the life affirming potential of the ancient wisdom traditions. My professional work has been a journey of blending these two, seeking an effective approach to those in need. In my psychotherapy practice, my publications, and my workshops I have come to deeply value the relationship between therapist and client.
  • For the past 26 years I have been the director of the Union Center, working with children, adolescents, and adults; individually, in families, and in groups.
  • In 1998 I co-created the MASTERY program, a group based intensive program in stress management and health promotion employing mindfulness training and cognitive behavioral psychotherapy.
  • For seven years in the 1990ís I was the national psychological consultant to Doctors Without Borders-USA.
  • I have been the co-editor of CONFLUX, an occasional report on the advances of psychology and medicine.
  • In 2010 I served as the president of the Psychological Association of Northeastern New York.
  • In 1981 I graduated from the University of Maryland with a PhD in Community-Clinical Psychology.

In a different, but equally important direction, I have been married to Eva Nagel for 39 years and we have raised four children, and delight in our two grandchildren. I have traveled all over the world exploring other cultures and sharing knowledge of healing practices. I am a musician, die hard soccer player, and organic gardener.
