In this article I discuss the field of energy psychology, and how it is couched within the larger field of energy medicine. I review the latest trends in EP research, and discuss how nurses have contributed to the evidence base for EP.

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.

Ramping Up Self Acceptance
Ramping UP!
