About Me

 

As a certified EFT therapist, my expertise has been recognized by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). I have also taken advanced training in EFT for individuals, relationship betrayal and the treatment of trauma.

My mindfulness - focused therapy work includes an upcoming certification from the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy at Harvard University (2023-24). My training also includes certification by the Yoga Development Course at Yasodhara Ashram, following extensive residential teaching on the psycho-spiritual aspects of yoga practice and philosophy.

Additionally, I am trained and experienced in the neuroscience of intense physical and emotional reactions through clinical polyvagal practices and numerous trauma focused programs.

I hold two graduate degrees in the humanities. My academic work was recognized with the top award in the psychotherapy stream of the Psychotherapy and Spiritual Care program at Martin Luther University College.
