I am a Certified Hypnotist and a member in good standing with the National Guild of Hypnotists.

As a professional, I strive to learn continuously in order to deepen my knowledge of hypnotic tools and emotional processing techniques. I am proud to have received the following trainings and certifications to serve you better:

- Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner and Certified HypnoBirthing® Infant Massage Instructor (Visit my other site, Joyful Birth HypnoBirthing® for more information.)
I also have extensive experience working with and training both individuals and groups; over 15 years of experience in the field of maternal and child health; and over a decade of experience working with energy and the healing process. In addition, I have a Master of Public Administration degree in public policy/international health. Prior to having my children, I spent years managing maternal and child health and environmental health programs and conducting global health research.
After having my children, I embarked on a personal healing journey. This involved intense emotional processing and energy healing work, the concurrent opening of my intuitive abilities, and the healing of my physical body. Using the techniques that I use in my client work, I have healed: the migraines that I used to experience regularly, which were a signal of my resistance to processing my emotions; ulcerative colitis, which was a signal of anxiety and fear that I held in my second chakra; and generalized anxiety, which was a signal to reprogram my nervous system responses to external stimuli.
This work is based upon my belief in the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit. In other words, unprocessed emotions can eventually lead to discomfort and disease in the body. Thus, my work focuses on helping you identify emotional patterns, and then helping your body release and heal those patterns. This work is a process of self-discovery and transformation. I will work in partnership with you to assist you, support you, and teach you specific, concrete techniques to take the next step in your path of self-development. Breath-work, guided meditation, hypnosis, visualization, and energy healing are used to guide you in your process so that you may increase your intuition about the needs of your body, mind, and spirit and experience your highest potential―whether that involves creating new thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and habits, or conceiving the baby whom is meant for you.
