I love to learn! I have a significant background in self development starting with Tony Robbins and his book Unlimited Power. I believe he was the spark toward the big bang in my life and my first introduction to N.L.P. Neuro Linguistic Programming is a powerful self development tool used around the world. Then, I lost over 100 pounds and ran 6 marathons in two years. I have always been fascinated with hypnosis and my journey brought me here. My first training began with Landmark Education. I then continued with certification as a Performance Coach C.P.C., Relationship Coach, C.R.C. Neuro Linguistic Programming Practitioner N.L.P., Time Line Therapy® and Hypnosis Practitioner. I continued and received my Master Practitioner in N.L.P, Time Line Therapy® and Hypnosis with the Tadd James company. I have continued my hypnosis journey with the Dave Elman Institute, a recognized worldwide pioneer in the hypnosis field. He brought hypnosis from the stage to a respectable recognized place in the medical and dental field. The Dave Elman induction is used around the world, stood the test of time and well known in the Hypnotist community.

A powerful metaphor from the bible, that speaks to our peculiar human condition, and sheds some light onto our conscious and subconscious mind -  "I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate." Romans 15 English Standard Version  - How is that possible that we do the very thing we hate and are challenged with doing something we say we want? Our unconscious mind is driving our behaviors without our conscious minds awareness. How do you then, control your unconscious mind? This question lead me into this fascinating exploration and field of work. Who is driving the bus and how can we influence that...
