Find A Practitioner
Welcome to this page where I am excited to share with you EFT Practitioners who have completed training requirements outlined in the description under Trainings and Certification. (can you make that a link they can click and go to, thanks) Some are licensed therapists or working toward licensure, and there are others where EFT is their practice. It is my goal that over time this list will grow offering you a variety of practitioners to choose from. Learning EFT and using it in my life is one of the best decisions I have ever made, maybe this will be one of the best decisions you will ever make as well!

I interweave body-centered approaches into psychotherapy, helping you move through suffering towards greater joy and ease. EFT is a remarkable tool, sparking the body’s energy system and allowing you to experience deep and lasting healing. In addition, I am an EMDR practitioner, an experienced registered yoga teacher (E-RYT), and a Relax and Renew Restorative Yoga Trainer with a focus on body-centered approaches for managing anxiety, stress, and depression.
Emotional Wellness Coach
Office: 645 Main St., Suite A,
After dedicating the last 10 years to the mental health and social services field as a licensed therapist and social worker, I have shifted my practice to holistic coaching and incorporate EFT as a primary tool to help my clients achieve their desired goals. Our stress and experiences are stored in our body and EFT serves as an incredible mechanism for rapidly releasing and shifting emotions and limiting beliefs. I enjoy working with women in the helping profession who are striving to take better care of themselves as well as creative entrepreneurs who are attempting to move past mindset blocks holding them back from creating their ideal business and life. I love witnessing women move through that “stuck” feeling toward regaining their power, worth, and inspiration.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and have been in private practice for the last 20 years. I have specialized in helping individuals and families create change and address emotional and behavioral challenges. I also specialize in working with substance abuse, depression, anxiety.
Additionally, I have extensive experience in working with adolescents with behavioral issues and blended families. Recently, I have become a certified Level 2 EFT practitioner and have incorporated this technique into my practice. I have been absolutely amazed by how quickly this tool can produce results. Most people who have had significant symptoms and long-standing issues have shown improvement within just a few sessions, and this is a tool you can use at home after the first session! I’m very excited about sharing this with my community. My private practice is in Cambria and also do telehealth sessions when appropriate. I would be happy to discuss how EFT can benefit you in your therapy.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Office: Remote via telehealth, Morro Bay CA
Phone: (805) 270-5819
My experience in the mental health field expands over 7 years and I have been practicing as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2017. My Eastern upbringing exposed me to the practice of holistic healing and mindfulness practices which I integrate with various therapeutic modalities that include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and trauma informed care. I work primarily with women specializing in depression, anxiety, life transitions, immigration, divorce, relationship issues, boundaries, healthy communication, stress management, sexuality, spirituality, cultural issues, grief, loss, and overcoming fear. I support women in the process of individuating and finding balance and wholeness in your authentic self. I help to foster integration of heart, mind, spirit and body to live a thriving life with ease, flow and abundance. Through an integrative approach, I work with you to free yourself of an old narrative and to reimagine and recreate an extraordinary narrative that reflects your highest values and self.
