We provide administrative support and co-working spaces for mind and body practitioners, specifically designed with your professional needs in mind.


Paul Lichtenberg, Ph.D. and Craig Kaplan, LMSW are the leaders behind this visionary workspace. They shared a dream to create a working community of practitioners who value integrative approaches to mental health and wellness. 


In 2018, they created the Iris-Kaplan Center, a place where individual practitioners who value whole body approaches can practice, convene, and collaborate within the aligned vision of a healthier world.

We are here to facilitate the facilitators and support those who guide others.


We believe that taking care of practitioners is key to improving patient outcomes and creating a healthy community in which all members thrive. 

You don't have to go it alone. 

Practice together.
