About Dr. Conger  Founder/Director

Licensed Psychologist
International Bioenergetics Trainer


Before having a private practice as a psychologist, I taught High School English in private schools (1960-72). I was ordained as an Episcopalian priest on Nov. 6, 1965. I began teaching high school English at St. Bernards School in New Jersey. After two years I taught at a New York Tutoring School while attending Cooper Union Art School. Through the years I taught at The Pingry School in New Jersey (1964-69), Horace Mann in New York, and finally several years at College Preparatory School in Berkeley. During that time I worked on a doctorate in English at New York University which I never completed.

I completed a doctorate in Psychology in 1974. I was Director of Phoenix House (1974-78), a half-way house for schizophrenic and severely depressed clients. I was licensed in 1976 and began a full time private practice seeing individuals, couples and families.
