A poem I wrote to creatively describe what I do
What I Build
Mental Health and Human Potential has been my focus since the late 1970s.  In 1989, I opened my psychotherapy
private practice and then in 2001, I became certified as an Hypnotherapist.   I have been successful with traditional
talk therapy, hypnotherapy and the art therapies, particularly dance movement.

I am thrilled to now use an additional intervention where my clients find rapid breakthroughs. And the words “rapid”
and “therapy” aren't often used in the same sentence!  As an Advanced EFT practitioner, I have been astounded
and amazed at how effectively EFT resolves physical and emotional  issues. I have introduced EFT to my family,
friends and 85% of my clients to this user-friendly technique.
I have used it frequently on myself to relieve myself of
the day to day stresses we all encounter.  It also has significantly reduced the allergic reactions to cats I used to  
experience.

I have been privileged to be trained in EFT practice and protocols by Lindsay Kinney and Zoe Walton in courses
approved by Gary Craig, the Founder of Emotional Freedom Techniques,  I have passed both qualifying levels for
Advanced EFT Practitioners as administered by
Dr. Patricia Carrington.

I work extensively with people of all sexual orientations (lesbian, gay, bisexual, heterosexual), genders, family and
relationship styles (non-traditional and traditional), and ages. I have a strong background dealing with issues of
abuse and trauma, addictions, depression, anxiety, phobias, stress, body image work, communication, creativity,
performance and sports.

I am also trained by the State of California's Office of Problem Gambling to treat Problem Gamblers.

Personal and Professional Philosophy

A successful therapeutic relationship begins with the client evaluating how s/he feels in the presence of the
prospective therapist. If there is a good match, the therapy can proceed. I am including my personal philosophy so
that you can get a sense of me as a person and therapist. This philosophy permeates my work and all my life's
activities.

I strive to lead a life centered around the principles of empowerment, human dignity, excellence, and patience.

I remember that what is important to me is personal growth, communication, diversity, true purpose and the free time
to pursue these principles.

I admire the following characteristics in others: being courageous, committed, industrious, creative, visionary, and
free thinking. I attempt to implement similar characteristics in my life and help others do the same.

I recognize my strengths and take the time to develop my talents as a person who is insightful, articulate, intelligent,
imaginative and grateful.

I highly recommend
Lucia August.  In one
short EFT session, she
healed my flight anxiety
from unmanageable to
the point where I could
comfortably take a 13
hour flight to China to
perform in an
international music
festival.   Margaret D.  


Lucia
Thank you for the light
hearted session today!  
Dumping off that old
heavy stuff sure feels
wonderful.  It was so
poignant (and obvious but
missed observation) to
work with how I learned
from my father.  There is a
new peace in my heart.

Lucia
Thank you for that
fantastic session.....it
really was wonderful and
SO helpful.

I feel like I'm finally
cleaning out, healing
accepting, the very
bottom layers of the  
"hornets nest" that I've
been working with for the
last few years.  It's like the
last pieces of the puzzle
are finally falling into
place.

And that's an ongoing
process....but there is less
confusion now ....and a
sense of ...well how could
it be any different?  What
can be seen and
accepted ...even
grudgingly ....is well on
the way to being
integrated.

So THANK YOU for your
lovely presence and
assistance.  I felt very safe
with you.

Important note: While EFT has produced remarkable results, it must still be considered to be in the
experimental stage and thus practitioners and the public must take complete responsibility for their use of it.
