Kismet. That's what happened when Kirsten and Cecile realized that the sum of their parts created something greater, more meaningful, relevant and vibrant. Something infinitely shareable. And something strikingly powerful to convey to women who were thirsty for clarity and mindfulness in their everyday lives.
Dr. Kirsten Harrison-Jack has spent her professional career as a Psychologist studying and treating trauma disorders and their sequelae. She has had the opportunity to conduct research on PTSD at UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute, as well as study at Georgetown University, Pepperdine Graduate School of Education and Psychology, Barry University and Pacifica Graduate Institute.
Kirsten's continuing education has included summers at Harvard Medical School and training in Europe, among many other conferences and workshops throughout her professional career. None has been as instrumental or informative in shaping her philosophy as her direct work with trauma survivors of ritual abuse and complex DID and PTSD. The creativity, passion and will to survive the unthinkable that her clients, many whom have become lifelong friends, have endured and struggled through on their healing journeys, have given her life’s work meaning and purpose beyond any professional training program.
It is in honor of these courageous souls that Kirsten proudly and steadfastly continues to offer her knowledge, experience and clinical skills, in the hope that the greater good can be best served.
