Find A Practitioner
Welcome to this page where I am excited to share with you EFT Practitioners who have completed training requirements outlined in the description under Trainings and Certification. (can you make that a link they can click and go to, thanks) Some are licensed therapists or working toward licensure, and there are others where EFT is their practice. It is my goal that over time this list will grow offering you a variety practitioners to choose from. Learning EFT and using it in my life is one of the best decisions I have ever made, maybe this will be one of the best decisions you will ever make as well!

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #82989
Healing Relationships and Promoting Compassion & Well-being
1461 Higuera Street #C
San Luis Obispo, CA 93401
With over 15 years experience in the mental health and human services field, I believe that people want to avoid suffering and can begin to heal by promoting self-compassion, courage, and inner wisdom. I practice an integrative approach to psychotherapy interweaving mindfulness-based, trauma-informed, and cognitive-behavioral techniques to support individuals in working through problem issues and symptoms in order to live a more whole-hearted and balanced life. With the additional use of EFT, individuals struggling with anxiety, trauma, limiting beliefs, and depression can experience symptom relief and long-lasting healing and growth. Along with being an experienced yoga instructor and artist, I also incorporate body-centered approaches and expressive arts to therapy, which helps individuals develop the mind-body connection, learn to express themselves, and promote peace. I enjoy working with adults, teens/adolescents, couples, and families living within San Luis Obispo community.
Laudon Rowen, LMFT
816 Main St Suite G1
Cambria, Ca 93428
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and have been in private practice for the last 20 years. I have specialized in helping individuals and families create change and address emotional and behavioral challenges. I also specialize in working with substance abuse, depression, anxiety.
Additionally, I have extensive experience in working with adolescents with behavioral issues and blended families. Recently, I have become a certified Level 2 EFT practitioner and have incorporated this technique into my practice. I have been absolutely amazed by how quickly this tool can produce results. Most people who have had significant symptoms and long-standing issues have shown improvement within just a few sessions, and this is a tool you can use at home after the first session! I’m very excited about sharing this with my community. My private practice is in Cambria and also do telehealth sessions when appropriate. I would be happy to discuss how EFT can benefit you in your therapy.
