Licensed Clinical Psychologist/Clinical Director

Dr. MacKinnon is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in mind-body-spirit holistic wellness. She has had a life-long fascination with spirituality, consciousness, and everything esoteric. In 2007, her awareness began to expand which eventually evolved into a Spiritual Awakening. Dr. MacKinnon was then inspired to assist Michael Tellinger to start the Ubuntu Liberation Movement in the United States in early 2016. After walking through her own experience of cancer and “spontaneous” healing in 2017, she felt compelled to move beyond traditional psychotherapy practices to provide support for the growing Awakening Community.

It is her life’s passion to help people release the ego to experience joy, inner peace, and clarity about the truth of their being. Her early career focus was integrative medicine, research on alternative therapies, and program development. Working as a clinical psychologist for Kaiser Permanente, Dr. MacKinnon developed the Mind Over Cancer mindfulness-based cancer recovery program for the oncology department.  She was also responsible for revising the weight and wellness curriculum for Kaiser Permanente Preventive Medicine.

In addition to her work as a clinician, Dr. MacKinnon has experience as an adjunct professor at Alliant International University and has been involved in research projects with Kaiser Permanente, Scripps Health, Veterans Medical Research Foundation, University of California, San Diego, and San Diego State University.

In 2015 as David Wilcock & Corey Goode disclosed cosmic truths, Jeffrey’s exploration into the nature of the universe and metaphysics accelerated. The Monroe Institute, Resonance Science Academy, and other programs further advanced his esoteric studies and energy healing.

Reiki, Access Bars and Life Coaching propelled him into the practice of QHHT (Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique) as a natural progression for his empathic nature. Conducting Past Life Regression has been his focus with clients bringing a broad range of curiosities, physical, emotional and relationship concerns as well as a yearning to connect to their Higher Selves for guidance. Through his regression hypnosis practice, he’s gained deeper insight into Earth history and Galactic history corroborated by Dolores Cannon and the Law of One. Blending disciplines of Energy Work, Life Coaching and Regression Therapy enables him to practice a style that uniquely serves his clients. He currently practices QHHT Past Life Regression and Energy Healing in the Boston & Cape Cod area while serving in a family business.
