Instructors: Hana Kamea Kemble, BC-DMT, RCC, CLMA, and Tannis Hugill, RCC, BC-DMT, RDT, etc. (Both instructors have over 50 years combined experience in the field, with additional training in other forms of psychotherapy also specific to trauma healing, addictions recovery, eating disorder treatment, grief, anxiety, and experience with a host of other clinical issues).
