As we shared in our mission, collaboration is a big part of our intention at The Hive. Here is a list of professionals who currently are or have collaborated with The Hive and are doing amazing work in our community.
Lisa Bradley, MA, R-DMT, LPC Intern
After completing an internship integrating Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT) and Equine-Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP), Lisa obtained a Masters of Arts in Somatic Counseling Psychology from Naropa University in December 2011. Since receiving her credentials, Lisa has begun a private, somatic psychotherapy practice, inviting teens, adults, couples and families to experience the therapeutic value of a body-based perspective in therapy, with and without the co-facilitation of horses. Over the past 7 years, Lisa has been supporting individuals who are experiencing grief and loss, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, self-harming behaviors, suicidal ideation, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and more. Lisa is dedicated to providing a practice with a compassionate, multi-culturally sensitive approach. She is invested in continuing her education in equine and somatic therapy practices as she works towards becoming certified as an Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning (ESMHL), and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). She is awed by the healing power of both Dance/Movement Therapy and Equine-Facilitated Psychotherapy from personal experience, and thus is passionate about providing these therapeutic modalities for others in a journey towards health.

Being our true self is what the journey of life is all about. Life is to be lived without any delusions stated in words from past experiences. True self cannot be stated in words but lived as an experience. Shiv refrains from attaching himself to any definable label, be it of status, gender, religion, nation or any other description that would define and therefore limit. All that he is, is.
Shiv is the author of “The Seed of Nothingness” and creator of Dance Meditation Transformation also known as Morning Celebration Meditation. He a visionary who believes the truth of life is through living life simply. When you realize who you truly are the search for happiness on the outside ceases and the nectar of life can be truly experienced through the inner joy and life that surrounds you. He shatters Western and Eastern dogmas of spiritual ideology of ‘doing to achieve’ by his profound message that everything is already within you and through the ‘non-doing’ do we really come to know our true essence. Thus imparting wisdom that a person’s journey towards Nirvana is only possible through self-realization, and not through borrowed knowledge or belief systems. Shiv’s very presence will invite you to settle the mud of mental chatter, confusion, and distraction to allow the clarity to shine through. Shiv joyously teaches through the spaces in between his words, inviting each one of us to experience the compassionate support to journey inward. Through his own inner silence and presence others around him will feel the resonance of his inner silence that is sure to create a ripple effect. Enjoy and allow this experience to completely unravel the mysteries of life and beyond.
