Elizabeth W. Krasnoff, MA, MIM, was born and raised in New York, living now on the west coast in San Francisco. She is currently working towards her doctorate in Transformative Studies with a focus in Consciousness Studies at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). Her inquiry is into the effect of sound on self-regulation of the autonomic nervous system.
In 2015, she became a certified Energy Healer through the Academy of Intuition Medicine® Master Certification program (MIM), and received her Sound Healing and Therapy Certificate from the Globe Institute, in addition to completing the Heartmath® training program. Her MA is in Depth Psychology and Mythology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. Her BA in English with a Russian concentration was received from Boston College, Phi Beta Kappa, Summa cum laude. From 1994-1998 she lived abroad in Russia refining her comprehension of the Russian language.
A lover of music and sound, Elizabeth has been a singer/songwriter for 17 years, releasing five studio albums. She is half deaf from childhood, resulting in years of personal study of sound, hearing and the human voice. This includes a year of Tomatis Method, 10 years of voice in the Seth Riggs method, numerous live performances with specially engineered sound equipment, and re-learning how to hear eight different times as she changed hearing aid models.
Her main passions of music, healing and consciousness joined force in 2016 with the start of her private practice Sound Medicine. She has trained and immersed herself in the Biosound Healing™ methodology, a configuration of vibrating sound bed, meditation, music, video and Heartmath®, and combines this with the other skill sets in her practice to help clients deal with stress, trauma, illness and fatigue, using sound. Aside from the demanding schedule associated with school and her practice, Elizabeth enjoys being a mother, the arts and spending time in nature, especially on the San Francisco Bay.
In 2018, Elizabeth was published in the World Futures Journal and twice in the Society for Consciousness Studies newsletter. She presents on sound and consciousness at venues such as CIIS, CIHS, the Academy of Intuition, the Globe Sound Healing Conference and lastly JFK University, where she now teaches the annual Sound Healing class in the Expressive Arts Program. Her next presentation will be at the Consciousness and Spirit Conference at the Yale Divinity School on June 1, 2019.
