Recently, one of my clients shared a story about his morning that was very revealing of a dynamic I see far too often in practice.  He was heading to work late because of a doctor’s appointment, and freeway traffic was considerably lighter than during his typical rush hour commute.  He made it to work in […]

Ryokan Poem

What is this life of mine? Rambling on, I entrust myself to fate. Sometimes laughter, sometimes tears. Neither a layman nor a monk. An early spring rain drizzles on and on. But the plum blossoms have yet to brighten things up. All morning I sit by the hearth, No one to talk to. I search […]

"I chose Ryokan because it was convenient, flexible and affordable. I still work, have a family, take care of my aged mom, own a home, etc. The online classes work best for my busy lifestyle. Without their flexibility, I would not pursue this."

Bob Kennedy, MS, MFT (current doctoral student)

"I had attended two California State Universities and received a Master’s Degree from each before attending Ryokan College to acquire my doctorate in Clinical psychology. My second Master’s Degree was from California State University at Dominguez Hills—the program was completely online and there was virtually no difference in the quality of education I received from an accredited California state university and Ryokan college."

Dr. Jann Blackstone-Ford

"My experience at Ryokan from the initial interview through graduation was one of encouragement, motivation and compassion. I have referred others to Ryokan without hesitation knowing first hand that the school is always a part of my mind and I will always be grateful to Ryokan for giving me that chance."
