Dr. Cynthia Libert Verified Buyer


Dr. Amen's Brain Health Professional Certification Course

"I am so grateful to learn from Dr. Daniel Amen and his fantastic team at the Amen University. As a board-certified family physician with extensive training in functional medicine, I have had many outstanding teachers; however, Dr. Amen tops the list. He is one of the most gifted brain health educators in the world. I found the Brain Health Professional Certification course to be highly engaging, enjoyable, and an excellent investment. The content has transformed my medical practice and how I counsel patients. I wish I had learned this valuable information earlier in my career! Every medical school should include this in its curriculum."

Whitney Natiello, Lic Ac Verified Buyer


Dr. Amen's Brain Health Professional Certification Course

"The Brain Health Professional Course changed my career and my clients’ lives. As an Acupuncturist for the past 21 years, I learned of the Amen Clinic experience through my daughter’s treatment and astounding success. I became so curious as to what they were doing, I took the course, and never looked back. It gave me a way to interact with my clients and be able to help them foundationally, at the brain level. In Chinese Medicine we always look for the root of the imbalance. I was working so frequently with mental health issues, behavioral issues, and relationship issues with my clients, that I realized if we don’t treat the brain along with what else is imbalanced, we are missing the boat. If you are serious about taking your healthcare practice to a whole new level, one must study the newest in neuroscience. Thank you, Amen University, for putting together such a well-designed course."

Flor Pedrola Verified Buyer


Dr. Amen's Brain Health Professional Certification Course

"The content of the Brain Health Professional Course is what I was waiting for in order to get a deeper understanding of the brain. Dr. Amen makes it easy to absorb many interesting topics that can really help us all to change our lives for the better. As an executive coach and an active collaborator in many social activities it has been incredibly rewarding to witness positive changes in executives and young people too by introducing them to the brain as a friend, creating that awareness towards the importance and the need to take care of it. I recommend the course to parents, educators, mediators, and coaches. It will change your life and the ones you serve."

Sheryl Burdette, PhD Verified Buyer


Dr. Amen's Brain Health Professional Certification Course

"I first got certified as a Brain Health Certified Professional in 2016. I am now going through the material/course again. Being a part of Amen University and Amen Clinics has been such an exciting, educational experience. I continue learning and using brain health in our Christian Counseling practice. Every client is introduced to this information and resources and used as a part of their therapy. Having great brain envy has been a true incentive for the overall 4 Circle (biological, social, psychological, spiritual) health evaluations. They are always available and helpful for assistance. I am looking forward to continuing this journey!"

"I am a licensed professional EMDR counselor who specializes in trauma. In 2019, I became a certified brain health professional.

Going through the program expanded my understanding of trauma and deepened my empathy for clients in their respective mental and emotional needs."
