CJ teaches group classes in EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) in New York and Montana that demonstrate how EFT can be used to address the underlying causes of stress, anxiety, tension, and discomfort, as well as problems pertaining to relationships, career, prosperity, and self-image, plus how to use EFT to help improve the lives of pets and other animals. EFT is an acupressure tapping technique that is easy to learn, easy to use, and easy to share with others. 
Come see what makes these workshops (in the words of her students) "energizing, incredible, empowering, sweet, fun, generous, supportive, heart-opening, entertaining, life-changing, awesome, amazing, exciting, and, best of all, effective. CJ  creates a wonderful, powerful EFT learning experience of lively, energetic fun!"




What You'll Learn in CJ's EFT Workshops

Since 2002, CJ has taught workshops that train EFT practitioners and students. These workshops focus on techniques that help EFT users and practitioners at all levels of experience reach their goals quickly, efficiently, and with lasting results. They focus on "The Art of Delivery," a term that EFT founder Gary Craig uses to describe the incorporation of tools that improve EFT's Basic Recipe. Learn the fastest and most effective ways to apply EFT for improved finances, life, health, career, relationships, and everything else!   

            For several years, CJ collaborated with Gary Craig on a series of articles, reports, and books about EFT, including EFT for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder,  EFT for Back Pain, EFT for Weight Loss, EFT for Sports Performance, and EFT for Golf, all published by Energy Psychology Press.

            As CJ explains, “Editing these books has given me a wonderful opportunity to review not only Gary's approach to common problems but protocols developed by EFT practitioners, instructors, students, and users of every description. These are powerful refinements. Our workshops feature the best of these new developments while remaining faithful to Gary's approach to EFT."

            CJ is one of the few EFT practitioners to complete Gary Craig's foundational and advanced level certifications by examination (EFTCert-I and EFTCert-II) as well as advanced level certification from Gary's daughter, Tina Craig, in her Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (www.energypsych.org) EFT practitioner certification program.

            In all of CJ's workshops, students apply EFT to their own challenges and issues as well as to those of others, including friends, family members, and individuals who volunteer to be worked with onstage. All participants receive extensive handouts and follow-up memos.
