Timeline: Trainings and Certifications

These are all the teachers and trainings that have influenced me on my path. To teachers and students on the path of self-discovery, I recommend learning from who and what you're drawn to. That intuitive sense is every cell in your body communicating with you.  These trainings facilitated deep, transformational healing in my life.
