Certified Clincal Hypnotherapist
The ability to think is one of our most extraordinary gifts, as is the ability to focus our thoughts on that which serves our highest good. Science confirms, again and again, the positive impact of hypnosis on a person’s state of being.
Most of my clients are stressed by old negative beliefs, blocks, and habits that no longer serve them. I have expertise in and help women with sexual intimacy issues, trauma, anxiousness, empowerment, relaxation, focus, concentration, and weight loss. Often my clients have chronic health conditions or want to make lasting lifestyle changes in a safe, judgment-free space.
My personal experience with hypnosis has been woven throughout 30 years of studying complementary medicine, spirituality, and healing. In graduate school, my test anxiety was paralyzing. After several hypnosis sessions, I was saying words during my final board exam that I didn’t know I knew! It was my first lesson toward understanding that we have the answers we seek within us.
When we can access information residing in our subconscious mind, we can facilitate healing and resolution.
I'm also a proud mama! Sometimes he even listens to my commands.
After grad school on a road trip across Texas, I happened upon a podcast by Julie Ryan. Julie is an accomplished, credible businesswoman, inventor, author, and serial entrepreneur who became a medical intuitive, energy healer, and psychic medium. She explained everything in a way that wasn’t woo-woo and revealed how science is proving the relationship between energy and transformation with quantum physics so it’s all evidence-based. The scientist in me was hooked!
These days, it is my honor and privilege to assist others in creating life-transforming change through hypnotherapy and related methods.
Trust & Safety
Authenticity – I truly have the desire to share something that I know works.
Integrity – I do what I say I am going to do and set a high standard for all my interactions. I value your time and your investment in yourself to do this work.
Trust – You can absolutely trust that all our work is confidential and that I will never judge you or impose my beliefs. We work on what YOU want to feel, be, do, and have.
Safety – You are always in control. You are leading ME not the other way around. YOU are doing the work – and you don’t have to relive your traumas to transform them.
Freedom – This is about breaking free from identifying and defining ourselves through the lens of our negative beliefs. Those beliefs are just that – they are not real. #fakenews
Transformation – When we uncover one block, there are often more blocks underneath like the layers of an onion. When you feel safe peeling back each layer you can finally get to "ahhhh, here's what my soul really wants." From this state of mind, you can move forward with grace and ease.
