The Monterey Center of Alameda (TMC) has been helping people find happier, healthier, more balanced and productive lives for over 3 years. Founded on the awesome and inspiring peninsula of Monterey, TMC has now relocated to the charming, central locale of Alameda Island in San Francisco’s East Bay. Our facility boasts the comfort of a home, with a meeting room, front reception desk, a study area, private consultation room, sauna and more. We are a two-minute walk from the state park and beach where you can catch a sunset over the spectacular downtown San Francisco skyline across the bay.
The Serenity Group is a free monthly workshop that offers a variety of different topics as they become relevant. Some will focus on the creation of positive intention, while others will look at the mechanics of the body and the brain and how we can improve their power, while still others will assist us in how to write our own success ladder, how to find a soulmate or increase our personal wealth and income. These can all be combined and addressed with the stress-relieving methods of bio-feedback, building brain power with neurofeedback, creating health and vigor with detox and nutrition, in conjunction with life-improvement courses and classes.
Our practitioners has over 37 years of combined experience. We are certified individuals in Biofeedback and Neurofeedback applications, with accumulated experience and study in Life Coaching, Detox, Communications and more. The services we provide are unlicensed by the state of California and we fully comply with California S.B. 577, as an alternative and supplemental approach to addressing wellness options not otherwise legally available.
Director, Valerie Hastings-Parker, has researched various physical, mental and spiritual pursuits over the past 20 years. After becoming a state regional gymnastics champion in her youth, she went on to realize the world of Metaphysics and Kinesiology at UCLA with Professor Valerie Hunt. From there, she pursued world travel and has experienced the varied cultures of East, South & West USA, Europe, the Caribbean, Asia, the Philippines and even remote regions in central Oaxaca, Mexico and Sierra Leone, Africa. As she progressed, she delved in alternative healing modalities of the body by experiencing, studying and interning Rolfing for seven years. During this period, she started her own bi-annual practice of fasting for detoxification. Following this, she spent intensive time in New Mexico upon the study of Carl Jung’s theory in application by assisting in the research of Alvaro Lopez-Waterman for his extended thesis. In 1993, Ms. Hastings-Parker discovered the biofeedback work that she practices today. She attributes the holistic approach of the Biofeedback, together with Detoxification, to eliminating her formerly chronic back pain, chronic fatigue and PTSD. In 2006 she founded The Monterey Center. Currently she is a certified provider of biofeedback, as well as offering life-coaching guidance, with supplemental education and training. She does this when she’s not directing center administration and activities or being wife and mother.
Bio & Neurofeedback Therapist and Speaker, Ron Fitch, has been an invaluable asset in the founding and current years of TMC. He conducts TMC workshops, where his 25 years of technical and research expertise can’t even come close to being addressed in the brevity of the workshops. He also has founded other, still-existent, groups that also work in the alternative holistic approaches. His emphasis is upon Memory Recall Improvement, removing addictions and enhancement of personal power through increased brain facility for mental clarity. His influences range from Dr. Wayne Dyer, Carlos Castenada, Sigmund Freud, Arnold Siegal, Ron Hubbard and Alan Watts.
