Yoshi Babcock, MA LLP
Yoshi Babcock came to the States as an exchange student from Japan in 1997 and continued her education to become a psychologist. She earned a master's degree in Humanistic Psychology and became a licensed psychologist in 2005. She has extensive experience with neuropsychological testing and conducting psychotherapy with clients of all ages dealing with anxiety, trauma, self-esteem issues, and cultural differences. Yoshi also has experience in working as a clinical research assistant at Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Department of Traditional Asian Medicine in Sendai, Japan.
While working in Japan, she experienced the Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami in 2011. In search of healing her trauma, she started riding horses and discovered the therapeutic aspect of horses.
Her strong passion for connecting with horses led her to earn a certification from Equispirit Partnership as an Equine Guided Learning (EGL) coach and facilitator in 2017. She also trained under Natural Lifemanship for Trauma-Informed Equine Assisted Psychotherapy.
Yoshi aims to combine humanistic philosophy with modern neuropsychological findings and utilize alternative approaches, such as eastern medicine, EGL, and psychotherapy.
