Evelyn Tribole

On Friday the 13th, Nadia attended Valley Federation of Eating Disorder Professionals (VFED) 2nd annual luncheon. There she got to meet award-winning dietician and author of Intuitive Eating, Evelyn Tribole. Evelyn’s dynamic personality was a delight! (The chocolate cake was delightful too!)

EFT with Individuals

Nadia kicked off 2015 by training with Yoland von Hockhauf, Certified EFT Trainer and Director of the Vancouver Couple & Family Institute. Nadia was inspired by Yolanda’s use of EFT with individual clients!

EFT Certification–Yeah!

After an inspiring weekend studying EFT, Nadia decided to pursue EFT certification!! Although EFT was initially created as a treatment for couples, EFT is also an effective treatment for individuals and families.

Emotionally Focused Therapy with Families

In November 2014, Nadia traveled to her favorite city–San Francisco–to train with her favorite professor, Jim Furrow. Nadia left the weekend with a renewed commitment and passion for helping hurting families. She was excited to hear about the expanding EFT work with families.
