What students and colleagues say...

Wonderful work! The EMDR portion of, How to Access the Somatic and Emotional Experience, is immediately useful and applicable to my EMDR practice.”
– Dr. Timothy Rowe, MD | Addiction Psychiatrist at Arms Acres, and Director of Psychiatric Services at St. Christopher’s Inn Addiction Treatment & Recovery Community, New York State, USA
It really is not about the target, it is about recognizing what got stored in the neural pathway to say, pay attention to this problem, this is very important! ”
– Laurie Colson-Young, LMFT, LPCC | Presenter in the Neuromodulation for EMDR: Targeting course
My awareness of the connections of body, mind, and spirit brought me to Auricular Medicine. Trauma resides in both the body and the brain, and with [these] tools...I help patients become aware of stressful patterns and help relieve them of physical and psychological pain.”
– Helene Pilon on benefits of Auricular Medicine | Level 2 CIAM-certified Psychologist, New Brunswick, Canada
