MY Story with EFT
Shortly after becoming a licensed therapist, I noticed that in order to help my clients more effectively, I need to learn more about emotion work. Coincidentally, I found one of the earlier books on EFT about working with emotions in psychotherapy by
Dr. Leslie Greenberg!
That book immediately caught my attention and I became fascinated by its rich content in theory and in-dept clinical examples and I could not put it down!
Thus my journey with EFT started and continued by traveling to different locations in the US to take EFT workshops and trainings with
EFT trainings equipped me with
deeper understanding of emotions
and solid structure in how to use emotional processing
in session with clients to assist them
in healing the past wounds by working thru painful emotions to healthier emotional processing.
Therefore, I felt responsible to bring EFT to California and create an EFT community!
Since the beginning of 2017, we've had EFT workshops and experiential in-depth EFT-I trainings, which attracted many clinicians.
