Accelerate Your Clients' Healing and Growth: Integrate Touch and Dialogue into Your Online Sessions

  • 10 Jun 2020
  • Zoom


Integrating intentional touch in your online sessions  helps your clients feel more connected to themselves and to you. Adding dialogue deepens the session and helps them know they are seen, heard, and understood. Both - touch and dialogue - activate the client’s innate healing wisdom. In the 5 weekly live webinars, you'll quickly and easily learn to do both. You'll then have to 3 months to practice what you've learned with your online clients and receive private 1:1 mentoring.

Presenter Bio

At the end of a day-long workshop with Ilana Rubenfeld in 1997, Joan knew that not only would this be the work she’d do for the rest of her life, she also knew in her bones that she would one day teach this work to others. At that time, she committed to do whatever it takes to be the best Synergist she could be… and she has. After completing a 4-year certification training, she quickly became a Teaching Intern, then Faculty, and now the Training Director.

As a lifeline learner, Joan has continued to hone and deepen her skills as both Synergist and teacher.

She has devoted her life to helping others heal from the wounds and trauma of life. Today, in her private practice, she primarily helps women who have experienced sexual trauma heal so they can step into their full power and take their rightful place in the world.

As the Training Director for the Rubenfeld Synergy Method, Joan trains others so they can become a healing force in the world.
