As a Consulting Hypnotist I help ordinary, everyday people with ordinary, everyday problems using individual hypnotic techniques. I combine behavioral strategies, mindfulness training, motivational enhancement and relapse prevention skills to help you achieve your goals.
My professional journey began 19 years ago working as a mental health specialist at a psychiatric hospital. There I was first introduced to the idea of mind-body medicine, and lead weekly group sessions focused on guided meditation and relaxation.
I graduated from the Hypnosis Motivation Institute in Southern California, the first accredited college of hypnosis in the United States. I also received a Certificate in Positive Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction from the University of Massachusetts Medical School. I am currently completing the MicroMasters in Social Work credential from the University of Michigan School of Social Work.
Throughout my career, I have completed thousands of hours of advanced training, hundreds of hours of supervision, and exceeded the "10,00 hour rule" in my private practice. I am a Professional Member of the American Hypnosis Association and an Associate Member of the National Association of Social Workers.
My tips for healthy living have been featured nationally and internationally in Reader's Digest, Fast Company, The Huffington Post, Capital Magazine, MSN News, FOX and others.
