My first counseling experience was 50 years ago when I volunteered at a drug and suicide intervention hotline. One night between phone calls I began reading a book on hypnosis, and I’ve been enthralled and impressed by its power to heal ever since.
Over the years I’ve been privileged to work at several social service agencies, and for the past 23 years I’ve been in private practice as a Medical Hypnotherapist. My current focus is helping people who have chronic health issues, are facing the challenges of aging or are at the end of life.
What inspired me to become a wellness professional?
I was overweight or obese most of my life, and by 1995 I weighed 120 pounds more than I do now. Thanks to hypnosis, healthy eating and exercise, I let go of those extra pounds and I’ve kept them off. That changed my life, improved my health and as a result, I became passionate about teaching mindfulness-based skills to improve wellness.
For as long as I can remember, people have come to me to share their burdens and life stories. I’ve learned how to listen so that you feel deeply heard.
How my clients describe their first visit?
They often say that in our first visit we accomplished more than they had previously experienced in multiple sessions or even years of previous therapies. Most people leave their first session excited and hopeful about creating the changes they desire.
What I say to someone who has never tried hypnosis?
Let’s talk about that. Hypnosis isn’t something that is done to you—all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. We are always in some sort of trance, and I’ll teach you to take control of whatever trance you’re in. There are the trances of fear, pain, hurt, anger, trauma, stress, anxiety and even eating too much food too fast—just to name a few. With hypnosis you can escape detrimental trances and become aware that in the present moment, you are safe and you are OK.
