An anecdote from one of my clients: My sweet baby grandson is 15 months old and, after honeymooning in Hawaii with his folks and big brother, he was sick after they got back home. I was babysitting him and after his nap he was waking up slow. As we cuddled and rocked, I noticed him […]Read More
Accredited Certified Advanced EFT Practitioner
My background is experiential rather than academic. I trained in EMDR with Francine Shapiro in 1995, Thought Field Therapy with Suzanne Connolly in 1996 and EFT with Gary Craig in 1998. I have been practicing EFT ETC for over 20 years. I served on ACEP's (Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology) Board of Directors 2006-12, and currently serve on the Board of Trustees for EFTi; and am executive director of FREA: Finding Recovery and Empowerment from Abuse. I hold certifications in NLP, EFT, EMDR and Havening, and incorporate rhythm, movement and somatic awareness in my work with "others." I am the author of "Heal Yourself with Emotional Freedom Technique" published by Hodder & Stoughton, London; and have led trainings and workshops throughout the US and in Europe. I have expertise in working with anxiety, (academic and musical) performance issues, social anxiety, and trauma. I live in Santa Rosa, California with my beloved partner Katya, and am a long-time meditator and student of Tibetan Buddhism (Drikung Kagyu lineage).
I have a deep need to serve and make a Contribution to our world; and believe strongly in the ethic of "Tikkun Olam": Repairing the World.
Enough about me! I look forward to hearing about you, and your needs and concerns.
