The Value of Believing in a Better World


About Me

Effie Baldwin, M.A. is a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator, a Certified Positive Discipline Classroom Educator (and previously a Certified School Guidance Counselor) who trains in coordination with the Positive Discipline Association. Effie has a Master of Arts degree in Counseling, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, and many years of counseling experience. She is a current Associate Member of the U.S. Golf Teachers Federation and is a Beginner and Intermediate Golf Instructor. In addition, she earned her 200-hour Kemetic Yoga Instructor Certification in Kemet (Egypt) from the YogaSkills School of Yoga. This rounds out her goal of teaching the aspects of living a life that supports the mind-body-spirit connection. All three activities require the development of an internal locus of control (self-regulation) that focuses on the breath, being present, and striving for excellence so that you show up in the world as your best self!
Her greatest achievement, so far, is being the mother of two life-embracing adult-children.
