Elizabeth W. Krasnoff, PhD, MIM, was born and raised in New York, living now on the west coast in San Francisco. Her doctorate is in Transformative Studies, with a focus in Consciousness Studies at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). Her inquiry is into the transformative effects of sound, specifically "The Effects of Auditory Binaural Beats on Consciousness and the Human 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. Elizabeth is also a certified Heartmath Practitioner and a Shamanic Practitioner in training. 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 since 2000, releasing eight studio albums. She has hearing issues such as deafness and misophonia, 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, instruction with Silvia Nakkach, 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 uses her skill sets of intuition, sound, biofeedback and shamanic practices to help clients deal with stress by slowing down, identifying key emotions, and finding healthy rhythms and practices in their lives. Aside from the demanding schedule associated with her practice, writing and teaching, Elizabeth enjoys being a mother, a painter of contemporary fluorescent acrylic abstracts on music and frequency, the arts and spending time in nature, especially on the San Francisco Bay. She is on the steering committee of the Center for Reproductive Rights (the legal arm of the movement), on the annual NARAL committee (the information arm of the reproduction rights movement), the Board Secretary for The Society for Consciousness Studies (a professional society of researchers and scholars discussing and advancing the field of consciousness studies) and a member of the Medical Sound Association (a research and think tank documenting and creating protocols for evidence based sound treatments).
In 2018, Elizabeth was published in the World Futures Journal and twice in The Society for Consciousness Studies. In 2020 she had two articles published in the Journal of Conscious Evolution and one article published in SFYogamag. She presents on sound and consciousness at venues such as the Tuscon Science of Consciousnes Conference, Yale Divinity School, The Graduate Institute, CIIS, CIHS, the Academy of Intuition, the Globe Sound Healing Conference and JFK University.
