In addition to being a close friend of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dr. Kennedy was the founder of The Center for Human Problems and The Malibu Research Group Center in California, a center known for it’s expertise in treating many mental health issues. Working as Dr. Kennedy’s research assistant, prior to opening her practice, Batsheva learned about the human psyche and the relationship between mind and body.

In recalling the importance of Dr. Kennedy’s role as her mentor, Batsheva says, “I believe when we meet people, we meet them for a reason. Dr. Kennedy started me on my spiritual journey encouraging me to fulfill my life’s dream of working in psychology.
