About Me

 

As a certified EFT therapist, my expertise has been officially recognized by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). I have also expanded my initial certification to include advanced training in EFT for individuals, relationship betrayal and the treatment of trauma. Additionally, I am trained and experienced in the neuroscience of managing our intense physical and emotional reactions through clinical polyvagal practices and trauma-informed yoga.

 

I have also been certified as a teacher by the Yasodhara Ashram, following extensive residential training in the psycho-spiritual aspects of yoga practice and philosophy.

 

I hold two graduate degrees in the humanities, and 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.
