I'm a licenced clinical psychologist and working mother of three children. Each day is an adventure in finding balance and being present, but a challenge that I feel much more capable to engage in with the support of EBT. In order to reset my vibrancy I look for opportunities to commune with nature and activate my reward pathways through my sensory systems . Other days are spent researching new concepts to share with the graduate students I teach and the work I do for EBT. I derive GREAT joy from my travels locally and abroad both for philanthropic and personal enrichment.
A serendipitous twist of fate. I was selected to join an NIH funded research study as the Primary Clinical Researcher for a study on the effects of EBT with Pregnant over weight mothers. I was fortunate to consult on the EBT method that was adapted for this population: Mom's in JOY. Prior to the roll-out of the study I developed an exercise component, Eudonic Yoga, that incorporated the 7 Eudonic Rewards with a series of seven different yoga postures and movements.

I'm a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the State of California and in practice for over two decades. My style has evolved over the years based on exposure to new methods and concepts. However, it's always maintained an adherence to bringing the body/mind/spirit dimensions into a reasonable balance into the lives of the populations I've worked with. Having specialized in neuropsychology, I appreciate the biological contributions of behavior and the hopeful endeavors that can be implemented in order to impact the quality of our lives.

EBT has been very helpful to me, so far mostly in reducing stress. It takes a time, but it doesn't feel like work for me. Instead, I'm very happy to be able to do something for myself.
Just for the record, I'm leaving ebtgroups for ebtconnect, because I love the forums, and I found Spiral Up on ebtconnect even more helpful than Wired for Joy on ebtgroups.
A huge big thank you to the whole EBT Team!
I purchased my first kit in 2000! It took me several years to actually open it up, listen to the tapes and then read the book. It was at a time when a crisis hit me and I needed it. I was surprised to discover what a thinker I am. That was very frustrating! After sixteen years of practicing, practicing, practicing I have a natural skill of checking in with myself throughout the day, making sure that I am doing well and that I am taking good care of myself. I love this!!!
EBT is a great way to transform emotional pain into joyful authentic living. Re-wiring to connect more deeply with self and others.
It was a great training course and I have leaned so much during my time with EBT.
I love this work! EBT changed my life too, definitely for the much, much better.
Utilizing these tools in my life has been instrumental in bringing me to the successful place I am now. I found this work in 2006 and since then have come to an amazing place of peace and understanding. I made amends with the past and built an amazing business and future for myself. I thought that quitting smoking (6 years ago) was my goal, but it was so much more than that. I have found amazing health and have become a patient and loving mother--creating a family sanctuary in our home. I've learned to move past the idea that things have to be perfect and just enjoy that things are the way that they ARE.
I'll be back
EBT has taught me a lot about my feelings and emotions. The providers are wise and caring. As a result of doing this work, the quality of my life has improved greatly.
I learned useful technics for managing emotions.
thank you for your support
EBT is a wonderful support for personal healing and growth.
Wish all the best to the group, much growth in the work and time I spent here.
Arinn provides a depth and sincerity to her work that forges unity, passion and perseverance for those who train with her. She finesses with an honesty that tailors a transparent culture of willpower and independence, but also a sought after trust and interdependence. I hold Arinn in high regards as she nurtures the presence and wholeness in leaders to help them realize a higher quality of life.
EBT is awesome!! I have been in different therapy for years and EBT was the first that really clicked in me as far as a genuine answer and not just a band-aid. It is very difficult at first just because expressing my emotions is so foreign to me but if you can push through the uncomfortable feelings at first (which is needed for any change anyway) it can truly change your life!!!! Also, Arinn is the best!! Very loving and great at helping people bring out their emotions!
Over the past year, EBT has improved my well-being significantly. I have a deeper understanding of myself 9and others), my behaviour and feelings. Through coaching, kit work and group connections, EBT provides the support to help one thrive in life. EBT has truly been a gift to me and I am forever grateful for it crossing my path. I feel empowered and am living a more joyful and loving life because of the work I have done with EBT. It's like magic!!
