I am somewhat of an alchemist – helping clients grow self-awareness and self management skills, increase resilience and emotional intelligence and enable a greater knowledge of personal strengths. Doing so allows the transformation of thoughts, beliefs and behaviors resulting in the highest level of personal, physical, academic and professional success. I do this by synthesizing my career in learning and development, leading and training, operations/productivity, and my passion for personal development to stay educated and serve at the highest possible level. This combination allows me to curate the most effective blend of solutions for my clients to reach their goals.
I am a certified Professional Coach through the International Coach Federation, and a graduate of the most comprehensive and trusted existing hypnosis education program, the Hypnotherapy Academy of America. In addition to general hypnotherapy education, I have specialized training in the medical hypnosis (all lectured by a pediatrician, physicians, and psychiatrists) and pediatric hypnosis and am currently a Fellow with the International Board of Hypnotherapy.
HYPNOSIS VS. HYPNOTHERAPY
Hypnosis is a relaxed state of mind/body that allows total focus and concentrate. Hypnosis is effective as long as a person is open-minded, has a true desire to improve, and is committed to his or her goal.
Hypnotherapy is the use of the hypnotic state to solve problems. Hypnotherapy enables people to change habits, reduce stress and achieve their goals — much more easily than anyone can in a state of normal awareness. It’s been used for thousands of years to help people with a wide variety of mental and physical challenges.
Disclaimer: Hypnotherapy is an educational and self-improvement process that facilitates access to a person’s internal resources to assist him/her in solving problems, increasing motivation, or altering behavior patterns to create positive change.
