Please be patient with us as we create a new provider directory.
We would like to help connect patients with providers trained by Dr. Nordstrom and the ALF InterFACE Academy. The only providers listed here are those that have completed the ALF Certification Process. Please be aware that this is the first year we have offered certification. This list will be small to start. If you want to find out more on who has completed individual courses you can visit https://alftherapy.com/where-are-the-providers%3F
By showing their lifelong commitment to your authentic ALF Therapy education by pursuing Fellowship, Mastership or Legacy Award with the ALF InterFACE Academy, providers are showing their dedication to expanding their clinical knowledge and enhancing their professional credibility to the public. Successful completion of the formal process and criteria validated by Dr. Darick Nordstrom and the AIA faculty will result in the award level that represents their accomplishment.
The ALF InterFACE Academy (AIA) certificate program indicates attendance or completion of a course or series of courses with a specific focus. It is open to newcomers and experienced professionals alike.
Certification includes an experience and education component and requires passing an exam. Maintenance of certification requires ongoing membership in the AIA and additional training, which ensures that practitioners stay current in their ALF Therapy education.
· Fellowship: A provider who is a licensed health care practitioner who has provided ALF Therapy services in their office for a minimum of 10 patients and has completed the ALF Foundations course and/or passes the Fellowship competency exam. To maintain fellowship status, the ALF Therapy Fellow must attend either one ALF InterFACE conference or complete 10 hours of AIA continuing education modules every 2 years to ensure that the provider continues to be updated on the most recent innovations and evolutions of ALF Therapy.

The legacy provider will need to provide proof of course attendance with Dr. Nordstrom for the prior courses that qualify them as a legacy provider and pass the fellowship exam. To maintain their legacy status, they must attend either 1 conference or complete 10 hours of AIA coursework every 2 years.
· Mastership: A provider who is a licensed health care practitioner who has provided ALF Therapy services in their office for a minimum of 20 patients and has completed the ALF Foundations course as well as at least one of the Advanced level courses and/or passes the Mastership competency exam.

The ALF InterFACE Academy neither endorses any individuals or companies listed on the ALF InterFACE provider listing nor does the provider listing information imply a certain skill level. We provide validated educational resource listing for training endorsed by and provided by Dr. Nordstrom and the ALF InterFACE Academy.
Even though we are committed to providing validated and updated provider information to the public, it is up to the user's discretion to inquire about ALF training, experience and usage when contacting a provider from the provider listing.
Our Academy is founded on the principle that the body has the ability to heal itself when provided an environment supportive of healing. When treatment is rooted in the concepts of human neurologic and reflexive development, a more ideal craniofacial development will occur. The growth of the face of the developing child will determine the function and appearance of the adult.
We are rooted in the function of our brain.
Our faces develop as a result of the many dimensions of human function.
We grow and express our personality as a reflection of our ability to be the best version of ourselves.
ALF Therapy attempts to identify and remove obstacles to ideal growth to promote the both the attractive appearance and healthy function of our patients.
