  1. Hello! I’m a licensed MFT in Newport Beach, CA. I’ve been in private practice since 1994 specializing in trauma, addictions and couples (intimacy) work. To meet my clients where they’re at, my work tends to be eclectic. My orientation is grounded in attachment theory, IFS, somatic experience + mindfulness body-energy therapies, and neurobiology. I’m certified in EMDR. Grateful, to be in good company.

  2. Hello I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist in Los Angeles CA. I have been in private practice since 2006 and work with a lot of young adults, couples, people who are grieving and am learning more about working with trauma. I love to learn and grow personally and professionally. I look forward to all that is ahead here!

  3. Hello! I am an Australian living with my family of five in Hong Kong for eight years. I love being in nature and as founder of The Collective Journey, I share nature-based adventure therapy, integrative counselling, and mentorship experiences with young people on the trails of Hong Kong and a virtual village connecting parents and other compassionate people supporting the wellbeing of families.

    When not on the trails, I collaborate with other practitioners at an integrative medicine practice as a counsellor and ontological coach to support healing of the whole person, including biological, psychological, social, and spiritual elements. I also share the teachings of Integral Yoga in nature, schools, community organisations, prison, with foreign domestic workers, refugees, and through the counselling process with individuals and groups as an Accessible Yoga Ambassador.

    This path followed 20 years in professional and financial services across Australia, the United States, and Hong Kong where I observed the influence of our disconnected ways of being and unresolved childhood and adolescent trauma on the personal, professional, organisational, and societal level. I realised that if the concept of living with more compassion and intention was a challenge for educated leaders and decision makers to digest, there was a disconnect upstream.

    My intention is to create opportunities for all ages to receive support without judgement and connect with compassion to self, others, and nature while becoming more aware of the interconnectedness of the collective on our journey toward self mastery.

    I look forward to learning and connecting with other practitioners through this program.

  4. Hello, I am Evangelia Andritsanou, I am a registered psychotherapist in Athens, Greece, working in private practice since 2012 with Greek and English speaking clients. I mostly work with individuals and groups, but my basic training was systems-centered, so I also see couples and families. The major issues my patients are struggling with are trauma – individual and/or transgenerational, – existential concerns and crises, and real-life challenges in today’s complex world. I have also translated into Greek numerous leading psychotherapists’ works (I.D.Yalom, D.N.Stern, L.L.Havens, Y.M.Agazarian et al.) and have learned a great deal through them. I am very happy to be part of this community of experts and eager to gain more insight and find out new effective ways to be helpful to people in need. I am especially grateful for the clarity and user-friendliness of NICABM courses, both quite rare features here in the Old Continent…

Some of the methods I use more frequently are trauma focused CBT, neurofeedback, sensorimotor psychotherapy, MI, mindfulness practices, yoga, and the arts/humanities. I love learning about the brain and psychology and I really love to research. I look forward to continued learning!

I also work closely with Navy and Army personnel. I am an EMDR Practitioner and find this tool extremely useful, when the client is ready. It can often take a significant amount of time and stabilisation before many clients are ready for this intervention. I enjoy using IFS and DBT and find them to be also invaluable. I’m in the process of learning more body focussed therapies, hoping to integrate this and more from these videos into my practice… especially for those clients that are really struggling

  34. Hi all, my name is Judy and I am a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist in Melbourne, Australla. I work primarily in a ELC-Year 12 Private School in Melbourne which is quite large and culturally diverse. I work with all issues from anxiety to disclosures of SA and Violence.
    I also live in the country and run a Horse Sanctuary – a forever home for horses and ponies who have experienced trauma and have been rescued and rehabilitated. They are not ridden and get to live their years out in a tranquil and horse centred environment. When I do have clients at home I have at times introduced them to some of my horses as horses give immediate neural feedback when a client is struggling with self regulation. I am excited to be part of this community because as the only Counsellor/Therapist at my work, I don’t have any peer to debrief with – I have to wait till supervision so this is an amazing opportunity. I look forward to connected with others, expanding my mind and knowledge and learning heaps!!

  37. Hi, I’m Liane. I work in private practice as a psychologist in Australia. I work mostly with adults but a few older teens as well. My area of special interest is trauma of all kinds. I work in a variety of ways and am finding somatic experiencing (SE) and brainspotting and other like therapies have garnered my particular interest lately. I find working bottom-up as well as top-down, or perhaps predominantly bottom-up, is the most effective with deep issues.
    I’m looking forward to all of the content and ideas. This is a great idea.

  46. Hi my name is Jamie Young and currently counsel on a Marine Base in Cakifornia. I have retired 2 times and am going to pursue private practice again soon so thought this would add to my knowledge and learning experiences.

  47. Hi. I’m Sallie Tasto. I’ve lived and worked in Palo Alto and Menlo Park as a psychologist in private practice for the last 36 years. Having received my MS and Ph.D. from the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology, now Palo Alto University, I also served as its Ombudsperson for many years, as well as on its Board of Trustees. I’ve been licensed as an LMFT since 1882 and as a psychologist since 1986.

    A single parent for quite a while, I now am “mom” to four grown children, their spouses, and nine grandchildren. My wonderful husband of 17 years enabled this expansion of beloved family. Three of our four families live close by (one in Brooklyn), and we rejoice in our grandkids who range from ages 17 to 1 1/2 years.

    Now that I am 77, my friends are bewildered that I haven’t retired. It’s because I love my work, and am so much better a therapist than I was earlier in my career. If Ruth Bader Ginsberg plans to work til she’s 90, so can I.

    The reason this course is important to me is that I find it easy to rely on what I already know. Most workshops repeat materials with which I am already familiar. However, so much marvelous research and new understandings have happened just in the last few years, I want to immerse myself in this material, and not be lazy about what I don’t know. Cheers to all.

  48. Hello, I am Sharon, a board certified advanced practice nurse practitioner in South Carolina with many years of experience in medical and surgical specialties.

  51. Hello, I am a psychologist in private practice in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, for over 25 years. Toronto is a very multicultural city and I work with clients from many diverse cultural backgrounds. My practice focuses on individual, couples/marital, and family issues. I also work with clients suffering trauma. My theoretical perspective is integrative and includes developmental and clinical psychology, cognitive/behavioral/attachment and family systems approaches. I also work with energy psychology techniques such as EFT in working with anxiety, depression, and trauma. I enjoy working with communication roadblocks and challenges, such as in situations where one person says something to another person, e.g., their partner/spouse and the receiver puts a completely different interpretation of the message than the sender intended and misunderstanding escalates. What I hope to gain from this program is continued learning and helpful insights and ideas to improve my own knowledge and responses/techniques.

  52. I am an art therapist in Vancouver Canada. I recently graduated from the Vancouver Art Therapy Institute. and I also have a BFA in Visual Art from Emily Carr University where I concentrated in drawing.

  54. Hi I am Geraldine from Ireland, I am a Psychotherapist and I work for an organisation dealing with suicide and self harm I have only just joined this group so I am hoping to be able to learn loads as I feel I get really stuck sometimes with clients, sometimes when I feel I have gone full circle and nothing seems to make a difference to the client, I find this frustrating however not all clients stay stuck so I am wondering if I can particularly learn some tips as to how to get out of the stuckness, usually clients who are stuck will repeatedly say I do not enjoy anything, cannot remember a time when I was happy etc. Apart from pulling out all resources and exploring times when things were going well, I feel I do not have much more to offer. Looking forward to learning loads

    1. Geraldine
      Thank you for your presence. As a person with issues of suicidality and developmental issues, I want to say that you do help already and I have gained so much from this Team , that I am confident you will feel far more confident after you watch a few of the videos. Great tools for helping in the moment but also knowledge of what you may be facing on a deeper level of what these people are orating to you.
      I a so grateful for people like you. I have had to reach out and you being at the other end proves that it works because I am still here. I found the
      Hmmmm, sparking curiousity really resonated with me.

  61. Hello I am a psychologist in private practice in Grande Prairie, Alberta. I love what I do and am always looking for ways to become more helpful to my clients. Private practice offers me the freedom and flexibility to work the way I want to but it can also be isolating so I hope to learn as much as possible and break some of the isolation. All the best!

  62. Hi Theresa here psychologist from Sydney Australia. I work in private practice . Currently the focus of my work is assisting adults who have sought help through their EAP (Employment Assistance Program) providers. Helping clients struggling with depression, anxiety and stress. I use tools and strategies from diverse modalities such as CBT, ACT, applied behaviour analysis, positive psychology, solution focused, strength based approaches. I advocate for multidisciplinary interventions in the management of well being in the presence of chronic diseases such as chronic pain, autoimmune symptoms and other comorbid conditions. I believe that we can make significant gains for our clients if we truly look into the biopsychosocial determinants of debilitating conditions. There is so much to do in the debate of public health but we can certainly start or continue the conversation on how we can work in multidisciplinary initiatives rather than in isolation.

  68. Hi! I am Shannon Aguilar, LCSW in Tampa, FL, USA. I have been in private practice for about a year now. Recently, I moved my office to a new location and have changed some things about the way I practice (no longer accept insurance, learning a new therapy). It has been challenging and slow going. The reason I joined this program is because I am looking for better, faster and lasting outcomes for my clients. I completed grad school in 2013 and became licensed December 2017. I loved grad school, but really have been left feeling ill-prepared to really get to the deeper levels of healing I am finding my clients are seeking. While they are happy to come each week to “talk it out” and to learn better coping skills and gain more insight into their challenges, I often am left feeling that they need so much more. So I am here to learn how to give them that. I look forward to using the program and connecting with other professionals who are seeking better outcomes for their clients as well!

  69. Hi everyone,

I work with a consortium of holistic practitioners in a center in Cleveland. We offer, yoga, mindfulness, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine and several counselors. I find it very helpful for the clients growth and healing to experience these enhancements.

I currently work as a therapist in a mental health day treatment program for adolescents. I am looking forward to learning from others and being the best I can be. It can be challenging being a therapist at times and so my hope is to deepen my practice in this course.

  73. Hello. My name is Janice Gregory and I work as a Clinical Psychologist in community mental health in NSW Australia. The modalities I am currently using include CBT, DBT, Trauma Informed Care, IPT and Neuropsychotherapy. The adult clients I work with have chronic psychiatric diagnoses including personality disorder e.g., a case formulation under the DSMIV-TR would identify symptoms/stressors on all four axes and a low GAF as a result.

    I am looking forward to learning from the experts and also from other practitioners so I may improve the work I do with this very vulnerable client group and to at least maintain the client’s wellbeing.

  74. Hello. Amy Markin, Licensed Clinical Social Worker currently working for a community based agency as an outpatient therapist in Durham, NC and in a small private practice group in Raleigh, NC. I have had a variety of social work positions over the years and am relatively new as a therapist with about 5 years of experience.
    I work with children from age 5 up, adolescents and adults. I am trained in TF- CBT and basic training in EMDR which I am continuing to study and am thrilled to have this opportunity to learn and glean ideas from such an esteemed group of clinicians/ teachers as well as so many colleagues.

  75. My name is Roni Morgenstern and I have a doctorate in psychology and CAS in school psychology. I live in Syracuse, New York. I have worked in a variety of settings including a developmental evaluation center at SUNY Upstate, a mental health outpatient clinic, in and with schools and I am currently in private practice seeing clients ages 5 years – adults. Many of the young children whom I see have autism and my focus has been to support the child’s social and academic problem-solving skills and to support parents with skills to interact effectively with their child. Additionally, it isn’t uncommon for the parent(s) to have their own stress and adjustment to the on-going needs of the child. I also see clients, usually teens-adults who describe concerns that focus on job, family, interpersonal stressors.

    I have watched one video about emotional regulation and trauma and it was very helpful. Thanks

  76. Hello to everyone from Perth, Western Australia!

    My name is Jennie Fitzhardinge and I have a Masters in Counselling from Murdoch University, here in Perth.

    I have spent five years working in the not-for-profit sector and I am now launching my private practice.

    I am here because I found NICABM’s Master course on Trauma really insightful and the comments from other participants useful too. As I take my first steps as a sole practitioner, I am hoping this community will offer support and wisdom so I can be the best counsellor I can be.

    Thank you for making this possible!
