Len Young (Ellen Craver Young), PhD, MBA, RCTC
Registered Certified Tomatis Consultant (RCTC)
“Don’t you know yet? It is your light that lights the worlds.”
– Rumi, 13th Century poet
Len’s background in cultural stories, Jungian psychology, mediation and coaching equips her to work directly with individual and family needs and solutions. She works with a variety of clients: children under 2 years old to gain speech to those in their 90s who want to hear better, process their conversations and communicate with their families.
A Level 4 Tomatis® Consultant, Len has worked as a trained Tomatis Consultant since 1996, was a founding member of the Association of International Registered Certified Tomatis Consultants in 200 (www.TomatisAssociation.org) and was an active member of the Research Committee. During her early Tomatis days, with colleagues, she helped expand the Tomatis Method throughout the US and the world.
Len formed Listening Clarity, Inc. in 2003, and has worked on cutting edge programs with Tomatis Developpement S. A. (Christian Tomatis and Thierry Gaujarengues) offering the Tomatis Method with the first portable Mini-Electronic Ear in 2003 and then with the US launch of Solisten in 2009, the first small portable device for TDSA.
“There are always solutions and I want to help seekers find them.” The Tomatis Method is a vital tool for change and Len loves working with people to open paths of learning.
Len Young works nationally, focusing on the Sun states with individuals, groups, schools and research. Dr. Young offers cutting edge equipment and applications to encourage change, working specifically in the following states: Arizona, South Carolina, Texas, California, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Washington State, Oregon, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama, West Virginia, Kentucky and Virginia.
“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”
Len is an intuitive mentor. She accesses her sixth sense to find solutions for individuals. She has developed several experiential processes that use a fresh image of playfulness to encourage imagination, creativity, and a sense of purposeful direction.
Len is committed to the whole person. Each individual and his or her story are vital to the function of our world. Leadership, courage, bravery, kindness, love: all of these are part of who you are. Len helps you identify who you are and where you want to go.
