Hypnosis Changed my life, let me show you how it can change yours

Ever since I was a small child I wanted to be an artist. Creating things was my singular passion. I pursued this goal relentlessly as I grew into an adult, and began working as a professional artist. That was until I was involved in a serious car accident that left me with chronic debilitating neck pain.

I did everything I was told to do, and at the end of my treatments, I was still left feeling trapped by my pain, unable to work, and desperate for any solution beyond prescription opioids. It was then, quite by accident, that I stumbled on therapeutic hypnosis. For me,when everything else I had tried failed, hypnosis worked! Over a period of just a few weeks, I got my life back, and left the pills behind. It is because of this very personal experience that I have found a new passion. To help anyone who is struggling with challenges or behaviors that keep them from being the very best version of themselves, with understanding, compassion, and above all kindness.

I am a registered and Certified Advanced 5-Path ™ hypnotist, and a Certified 7th-Path™ self-hypnosis instructor. 7th-Path™ is a transformational self-help practice, designed to help rid the conscious mind of limiting beliefs, using the power of the subconscious mind.

I, myself use hypnosis every day to control pain, create positive change in my own life, and feel more connected to the amazing world around us. So, please contact me if you have any questions - I would be delighted to answer them! Hypnosis is so fascinating because it is rooted in our subconscious mind, and involves all of the complexities of how we think and behave. The field of hypnosis is constantly changing, and I work daily to stay on top of the latest trends and techniques in the field.

I enjoy speaking, and teaching classes on: hypnosis, 7th-Path™ self-hypnosis, stress relief, healthy sleep, relaxation, hypnotic meditation, motivation, living with gratitude, and using hypnosis in art.
