Jenifer holds the following Professional, Non-Medical, Degrees:
Jenifer is Certified/Professionally Trained/Experienced in the following:
Classical Homeopathy (2 hour intake for chronic diseases)
*I have studied homeopathy through schools - in the US and abroad - including training in endocrine and chronic disorders. I've partnered with doctors, worked on integrative medicine projects and written books/ articles about the use of homeopathy in chronic and acute disorders.
I consider my work classically-based rather than eclectic AND I do work with LM potencies and those who are sensitive to remedies. I am of the school that homeopathy done improperly CAN CAUSE HARM and therefore and VERY careful in choosing remedies. There are schools of thought that homeopathy cannot cause harm however this goes directly against my personal experience and professional training. My first goal in any work with clients is to first do no harm and my work in homeopathy fosters this belief.
MAIN TEACHERS/BELIEF SYSTEMS: Classical Organon/ Hahnemann; Vithoulkas; Luc De Schepper
Coaching/ Counseling Methods
*I first trained at NYU in career counseling and received a dual degree in international business management and integrative philosophy. I counseled students on career and life-tracks at this point over 20 years ago. I then worked in American Express in Human Resources and counseled employees through career transitions as well as assisting individuals in strategizing and implementing entrepreneurial ideas. I then received my MBA in International Management/ International Marketing and specialized in global strategy and internet consulting. I also worked as a career counselor through the university where I studied. I began a business of coaching entrepreneurs at this juncture in my career and have done so since.
In addition to my university studies, have completed two coaching trainings, one an internal coaching training through my employer (American Express) and one 1-year training through a coaching institute (I choose not to name the institute as I didn't feel this training was to my standards of coaching and therefore do not wish to either market it nor cause it harm through naming.)
*I began studying the mind, meditation, NLP and self-hypnosis at age 11. I have studied since, through 6 different schools and have become an NLP Trainer (the 3rd and highest level of NLP); have certifications in all of the following types of hypnotherapy, and have personally studied through mentorship with some of the best of the best. I believe in NLP as a healing tool on every level and have taught NLP and hypnotherapy certifications for over a decade.
*I have certifications/ professional training (not all forms listed have certification tracks) in bodywork, yoga, craniosacral therapy (various forms), YNT, acupressure, shiatsu, shamanic healing and more. I've chosen not to list all of the methods I'm trained in as over the years I've found several former methods less useful and am only listing those I currently offer. I've been a student and teacher of the body my entire life and have also created my own methods of bodywork which I teach throughout the US and abroad.
*I am certified in body whole foods nutrition and integrative nutrition. I studied through several schools and the most notable for whole foods was a one month certification and OHI in San Diego where I learned the application of raw foods in overall health.
I consider myself an energetic nutritional consultant - perhaps more a combination of macrobiotic and wheat free in my own health, however, I find that I can work with one's belief system to find optimal health. I've assisted in developing personalized programs around vegan, raw, macrobiotic and ayurvedic-based and organic diets. When necessary, I may offer supplement options however, they are not usually my first course of action.
*While I've studied with various Spirits and teachers, my main training was two years spent working with vortexes in Sedona, AZ. I've let Soul Tours there and assisted people in transmitting vortex energy in very clear and scientifically sound ways. I am also an energy intuitive in general and assist individuals in tapping into their own inner wisdom and energy fields for deep, empowering self-healing. I've created and taught various forms of energy/shamanic courses for over 12 years.
Jenifer is also a proven intuitive (medical and spiritual). She uses her intuitive abilities in grounded, empowering ways, never forcing or producing fear in her clients. Rather, an intuitive since childhood, Jenifer is clear on how to offer information in ways that empower and release fear as she knows that intuition is based on heart-centered power, not force or fear.
