MY BACKGROUND

About Harley

My professional journey began 23 years ago working as a Mental Health Specialist at a psychiatric hospital. There, I served as team leader to psychiatric technicians, led daily group sessions, and provided direct care to patients experiencing emotional, psychiatric, behavioral, and substance abuse problems.

I graduated from the Hypnosis Motivation Institute in Southern California. Additionally, I earned certificates in Wellness Counseling from Cornell University, Positive Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction from the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

Throughout my career, I have completed thousands of hours of advanced training, hundreds of hours of clinical supervision, and helped countless people achieve their personal and professional goals.
