Katie’s Story A late-in-life doctoral student, Katie Nall earned her Ph.D. in Mathematics Education from Florida Institute of Technology just before her 60th birthday while working full-time at a local community college. Dr. Nall is still employed full-time at the college, teaching several mathematics courses and providing lecture and training for college-sponsored events.
During her research on ways for students to excel in Mathematics (especially adults returning or starting college), Dr. Nall was particularly interested in helping students overcome fear, phobia, and stress related to math class and math tests. In 2010, she learned of the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or tapping) and began offering the process to students who were open to the different approach. Students reported they passed math class, earned 100% on a math exam, and found math easier.
It was at this time that she began serious training in EFT and became a Certified Practitioner in EFT. Dr. Nall now shares this knowledge not only with math students, but with others who struggles with stress, fear, phobias, and anxiety. In this episode of Happy and Healthy Mind with Dr. Rozina, Katie shared tips on how she was able to help her clients:
Dissolve their WAFFLES (Worry, Anxiety, Fear, Frustration, Lethargy, Exhaustion, Stress)
Increase their confidence
Let go of their irrational beliefs and learn to think clearly
Heal their physical manifestations of stress
Thrive in their studies, careers, and personal lives

“When we worry, we are taking away many of our thinking abilities, decision abilities, and ability to focus. You have to make sound decisions to think of something that you may not have thought of. And so to get out, you have to release yourself from that state to be able to think clearly, to find what that solution could be, something that you may never have thought of.” -Katie Nall
