Several years ago, I needed surgery. Not having anyone to talk to, I looked within myself for a way to alleviate my fears and anxieties; through that, I discovered self-hypnosis. Although at the time I had no formal training, I learned enough to get me through the pre-surgery, surgery and post-op without the fear and pain that would have typically accompanied this surgical procedure. During this time, I learned that the human mind (my mind) was very powerful and could be taught to help in the coping and healing process.

At about that same time, with some 20+ years as the Director of Sales and Marketing with several large corporations, I was encountering many individuals who remained unfulfilled and frustrated because of their lack of self discipline, confidence or motivation. Many described a feeling of being “trapped” in bad habits, self-limiting behaviors, or lifestyles that no longer worked for them.

And so, because of a strong sense of empathy, an innate understanding of human behavior, plus a keen desire to not want to see others so unhappy, I decided to use the skills I was learning to help others through hypnosis.

Continuing to learn and become credentialed, I went on to graduate from the Hypnosis Motivation Institute (HMI), the first Nationally Accredited College for Hypnotherapy in America. Coupled with my strong interpersonal skills, I am now able to help those individuals who want to change self-limiting behaviors or negative lifestyles which no longer work for them. In addition, by teaching my clients to use the power of their minds, they learn to manage their own healing journey — to grow and release themselves to unlock their full potential.
