Lucanna Grey, MA, MFT, received a BS from the University of Michigan, and a MA from Santa Clara University (1981). Lucanna has been the Director of the Integral Counseling Center at Church St. for the past 20 years and is primarily interested in how to teach clinical skills to beginning therapists. During this time, the ICC has developed a style of therapy that is existential-gestalt therapy; this has evolved from her training as a Gestalt Therapist and her sensitivity to the evolving CIIS community. With the help of her former assistants, and her present assistant director, Gieve Patel, she used her many years as a clinician to work with trainees and interns in this form of therapy. In addition to the director position, Lu teaches as a core faculty in the Integral Counseling Psychology program.

Her class, an Introduction to Gestalt Therapy, is a combination of history of the humanistic movement and the evolution of existential-gestalt therapy taught experientially. Her professional activities in the greater Gestalt community has been consistent from her teaching at the Gestalt Institute of San Francisco to her presentation of papers at the annual Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy. The Gestalt Review, in Vol. 9, Num. 2, 2005, published her article, "Community Building Viewed from a Group Dream Perspective". Currently she is preparing an article for the same journal about training at the ICC using the gestalt framework with attention to working in the impasse.

Lucanna had a 28 private practice in Menlo Park which she recently closed in 2009. She is a former fly fishing person, and loves time on any river. After all these years she still finds working in Gestalt a path to greater vitality in her life.
