Connect Locally

Do you live outside of the U.S.? We invite you to visit the international page.

Our U.S. representatives are eager to help you connect with other like-minded professionals in your area. In fact, many states now have local ACEP groups that meet regularly! Contact your state rep for details.

Don’t see a representative for your region? Why not become one yourself? 

Here are some of the possibilities and benefits of connecting locally:

  • Get support with specific client situations. We all face new and challenging situations with clients at times. Learn how others have handled the challenges you may face.
  • Meet others with similar interests
  • Attend local workshops
  • Help increase awareness of energy psychology
  • Contribute to the development and acceptance of energy psychology by conducting your own simple research projects, either yourself or as part of a local team 

If you're interested in becoming a state or regional representative, please email Pam Altaffer -
