Doris Brevoort PhD, LMT, MHCA, massage therapist and counselor at Skagit Valley Healing Arts, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in neuroscience-based education.

With decades of experience to her credit, Dr. Brevoort has specialized in the application of music, movement, and neuroscience principles to childhood education. In preparation for her current career, she initially obtained a Bachelor of Arts in sociology of childhood, folklore and performing arts in education from Empire State University, part of the State University of New York system, in 1974. She continued her education with a Master of Arts in Education in school counseling and family counseling from the University of Washington in 1991. She later concluded her studies by graduating with a Doctor of Philosophy in human science with a focus on integrative health: applications of neuroscience in wellness and education from Saybrook University in 2012. Dr. Brevoort is a certified mental health counselor associate and a licensed massage therapist.

As an educator, Dr. Brevoort gained experience in Seattle Public Schools from 1991 to 2016 as a special education teacher and school counselor. From 1981 to 2018, she worked with clients of New Seattle Massage utilizing her massage therapy skills. Dr. Brevoort has excelled as a staff member at Skagit Valley Healing Arts since 2002, and a family caregiver at COPES since 2011. She also continues to work for Seattle Public Schools as a substitute teacher.

Dr. Brevoort was inspired to pursue her career in education when she met Paulo Freire, author of “Pedagogy of the Oppressed,” in Mexico in 1971. She has published her own work, titled “A Teacher’s Guide to Neuro-Education” and is currently working on another book, titled “Bringing Marcia Home,” which is about her journey as her sister’s caregiver. Dr. Brevoort’s new work grapples with issues of aging and mental health, and Dr. Brevoort hopes it will help other people facing the same circumstances.
