How it Began

When I was young I had dreams of being an artist, a photographer, and doing something in the medical profession to help others. Later in life, these dream, were set aside for a career in technology. I enjoyed the work I did as a Technical Project Manager. There were many benefits that came with it, but I also learned first hand about stress and the need to balance one's life.

In 2001, after having a very successful cervical spine surgery, my desire to help others be their best grew stronger. I continued to work in technology, but I also began professional training at Asante School of Massage in Pleasanton, CA; where I became a Certified Massage Therapist.

Having used self hypnosis successfully in my early teens, and realizing how much it might benefit others, I began professional training in 2007 at the Hypnotherapy Training Institute (HTI) in Corte Madera, CA. In 2009 I received certification as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and added this service to my practice. After further studies in Life, Goal and Spiritual Coaching, through IAP College, and Transformational Services, I now offer Clinical Hypnotherapy, and Life, and Spiritual Coaching (with, and without hypnosis), and love that I am helping others find their best self. 

After 25 years in technology, I have retired from that work, and I now focus on helping others, doing art, photography, writing, and spending time with my family. I look forward to meeting, and helping each and every one of you.
