TUCKER, Ga. -

A psychologist living in Tucker had a secret life. The former Israeli secret agent spoke to FOX 5 about her undercover life. Einat Toledano's once secret past has shaped who she is, and how she now helps other people.

Toledano is a therapist, and she founded the Emotional Wealth Resources Institute in Tucker.

"This is an institute to really train and teach people how to understand their wiring," said Toledano.

As a child growing up in Israel, psychology was not exactly the career path she envisioned.

"I wanted to be a P.E. teacher. And you know, life sort of evolves in a way that you don't always, you can plan it, ponder it, and then you end up with something totally different," said Toledano.

She ended up getting a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice. When it came time to serve her mandatory stint in the Israeli military, she was assigned to a specialized unit of the investigative police as an undercover agent.

"My unit was specifically responsible for ammunition coming into the country and any sort of smuggling," explained Toledano.

Eventually, she says, her undercover lifestyle just didn't make her happy.

"The betrayal just didn't work for me. It made me sad. And it made me sad to have to arrest them," Toledano said.

After marrying and moving to the United States, she says she finally discovered her own wiring, and what makes her happy. Now she says, she has a new mission and assignment to help others discover themselves.

"To show people how they're wired and try to fit their life to their wiring, rather than have them fit into something that for the most part may not fit," said Toledano.

She now has two very successful daughters. One chose a path from her past, the other from her present.

"One is a lawyer and one is currently in a Ph.D. program for psychology.

She says she still has skills from her time as an undercover agent, skills like using a machine gun. But she now only uses the neurotherapy machine. For more information on her practice, click here!
