Below I am listing credits, favorite books and websites for your interest. I hope you will find this information beneficial as part of your journey!
First I want to express my appreciation to Marie Jamieson for allowing us to picture some of her beautiful photography on this site. Her photos are at the top of every page except Home. Her art and photography collection is featured at http://marie-jamieson.artistwebsites.com/. It is even more extensive and beautiful than we can display on our site.
Next I want to honor the late Dorothea Hover-Kramer, EDP, RN. Dorothea passed away several years ago. She was one of my mentors for Energy Psychology and a friend. She trained and encouraged me in helping others with Energy Psychology methods. She remains an important influence as I develop the combination of Energy Psychology and Life Coaching.
Last but not least is my gratitude to Stephanie Eldringhoff, MA, LMFT, DCEP. When I started studying and practicing Energy Psychology 20 years ago she was my instructor and mentor. I and a friend used to drive the 3 hour trip from Port Angeles, WA to Issaquah, WA every month to study with her. Now I am consulting with her as she assists me while I consult with other professionals as they too learn to help others with this method. She is a marvelous teacher and has always been there for me.
