Jeffrey Smith

Jeff’s transition into the healing arts started as a client and participant of The Life Quest Center. For the next 17 years he became certified and clinically practiced a variety of healing modalities. While being mentored as a Family Constellations’ facilitator, Jeff learned the importance of discovering, identifying, and dealing with

generational family dynamics. It was also at this time that he became passionate in the study of the rapidly growing field of Behavioral Epigenetics, and the resulting chemical and energetic behavioral reinforcements they produce. While working at several alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers in Malibu and Los Angeles, CA., he saw the need for post rehab alternatives and became a certified Quantum Transformational Coach. From this process he learned the importance of accountability in the transformational time of change and healing for the individuals he serves.

Jeff is also a cinematographer in the film industry where he holds an MFA from the American Film Institute. He is currently producing psychological themed documentaries and series.
