Joan has devoted her life to helping others heal from the wounds and trauma of life.
Joan Brooks, Training Director
At the end of a day-long workshop with Ilana in 1997, Joan knew that not only would this be the work she’d do for the rest of her life, she also knew in her bones that she would one day teach this work to others. At that time, Joan committed to do whatever it takes to be the best Synergist she could be… and she has. After completing a 4-year certification training, she quickly became a Teaching Intern, and then Faculty.
She has continued to hone and deepen her skills as both Synergist and teacher.
Joan has devoted her life to helping others heal from the wounds and trauma of life. Today, in her private practice, she primarily helps women who have experienced sexual trauma heal so they can step into their full power and take their rightful place in the world.
Understanding the importance of being seen and known as an expert, Joan has extensively studied and trained in how to build a thriving practice. She is delighted to be able to share her knowledge and experience with those in the training program.
Joan knows this proven and powerful healing modality of Rubenfeld Synergy is needed in the world, now more than ever!

Rita Waters, Teaching Intern
Hi. I’m Rita, Certified Rubenfeld Synergist. I’m 68 years old (young) and live in our nation’s capital, but have my roots in Iowa farm country. I have maintained a continuous practice in Rubenfeld Synergy since becoming certified in 2002. My clients quickly find release of emotions that have been keeping them locked in fear, regret, anger, low self-esteem and other debilitating feelings.
Because it is so effective in unleashing the beauty and strength of each person, I am bursting with love of and commitment to this work and I want to see it continue and thrive. I am honored to accompany new Rubenfeld Trainees in exploring its wonders. I think I can help you approach each individual with compassion and a sense of the sacredness of the person. And I look forward to what you will teach me as well.
