I am a certified Clinical, Transpersonal, and Interpersonal Hypnotherapist and a member of the International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists. I studied at the Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy, obtaining over 500 hours of comprehensive state-licensed hypnotherapy education.
Before I became a hypnotherapist, I worked as a Florida state tax auditor where my innate ability to lead and my deep connection to people made me a natural fit for training and facilitator roles. Helping others achieve their potential was by far the most rewarding and motivating aspect of my career.
After 30 years in an accounting-related job, however, I was burned out and looking to engage in a more personally fulfilling career. I turned, once again, to self-hypnosis, something I discovered in my early 20s and then reintroduced into my life with the advent of guided meditation apps. I listened to many guided hypnotic recordings and felt a greater and greater sense of control over my own life. At this point, I had no idea you could have a career helping others with hypnosis until I stumbled upon the website for a hypnotherapy school. As I read, I began to feel so much excitement about what they were offering: a career in hypnotherapy! A way to help others improve their sense of well-being by using the power of their own inner mind! Inside 24 hours, I was enrolled in school, and, after 500 hours of training, I opened my own practice, excited to share all that I learned over a lifetime of self-study and practical application. I finally had a tool and a framework to truly live my purpose. Changing lives, one mind at a time.
Now I live in Jacksonville, Florida with my son and kitty. I love Florida’s sunshine and my early morning beach visits. While relaxing, I enjoy caring for my succulent plants and spending time on my back porch with a good book. You may see me out and about listening to live music with friends, attending an outdoor festival or shopping in a local health-food store. My large family all live within driving distance, and I find great joy in visiting with them whenever possible.
