Certified as a Master Hypnotist in 2008 by the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association; my continued education and passionate pursuit of personal development has led me to expand my knowledge into areas of psychology, philosophy, and neuroscience.
My interest in hypnosis came at the beginning of a divorce. I was an emotional wreck, and I needed help, but the idea of going to a traditional therapist was daunting. My limiting beliefs were deep rooted, and I didn’t have the time to “talk it out.” I had children at home who needed me to be better than ever. So, I made an appointment with a hypnotherapist. I arrived at her office a few days later, and we talked for a few minutes before my session. She gathered some facts and asked me to close my eyes. Her tone was soft and melodic, and I found myself relaxing for the first time in months.
Then she began to count down from ten to one slowly. That’s when I thought to myself; wait, not yet, I’m not even hypnotized! I can hear everything you’re saying; I’m not ready! Great; I thought, I’m never going to get better. But I kept my eyes closed, and I went through the session anyway. At some point between “Wait, I’m not ready,” and “now you can open your eyes.”, there was a significant shift. A monumental change had transpired during that one-hour appointment. I had spent a lifetime stuck in the same old mindset, believing that there was something inherently wrong with me, and in one session, I moved from impoverished to empowered! After that session, I went back for more. I used hypnosis to create self-esteem, quit smoking, find a job, and then I did something even more amazing. I went back to school! I made it my goal to help others create the fast and lasting changes I had made in my life. Today I can proudly say that I have succeeded and that one of my greatest joys in life is being able to witness the profound change that hypnosis makes in the lives of my clients.
