"After completing Annie’s first 2-year training (2006-2008) with my husband, during which time our first child was born, I not only could incorporate the learnings into being a more skilled, attachment-based therapist, but also into both healing my own early attachment wounds, and being a more confident, first-time parent. I was so intrigued by this work that I pursued a PhD in Pre- and Perinatal Psychology and Health, assisted Annie in her second offered training, and focused my private practice on working with both expectant and new families, and individuals working with early attachment and trauma challenges. The training is wholly transformative on the physical, mental, and emotional levels, inviting the kind of learning that can only be described as inside-out – as in from the cells-outward. Annie is a true master – of the body, of holding the field of a group’s process, and of understanding the material at a depth born of a lifetime of study and work – and she has been a trusted mentor for me for many years."
