am ever so gratified to find a way to offer people tools for real
change. In these days of increasing stress and confusion, it is just
incredible to learn to transcend the negativity, and come to a place of
beauty and optimism.
1989-1992 I studied with Lorna Cutler, PhD in northern California.
She had studied directly with Milton Erickson, a legend in hypnosis
teachings and studies. The respect she taught us for each and every aspect
of a person remains a firm foundation upon which my later learnings were
built. After having taken several classes at the university, I then did private
study with Dr Cutler and a group of therapists on a monthly basis for two years. During this time,
practice sessions with fellow students offered insight every week, as well as
adding my own experience with a hypnotherapist weekly. Giving sessions to family and
friends reinforced the value of this direction.
Having been a full-time RN since 1984, I have practiced in med-surg, in ICU, in
Ambulatory Care/ GI lab, and the last 8 years in Women’s Health,
including Labor and Delivery.
During the spring of 2004, I took an intensive training
course in California with The Hypnotherapy Training
Institute, taught by Randal Churchill, Marleen Mulder, and Ormond McGill (known
worldwide as "The Dean of American Hypnotists"). They
are incredible teachers and tremendous people. I am certainly grateful to
have attended their classes; 4 levels for a total of 200 hours of hands-on
instruction. In August of 2004 I took the HypnoBirthing training with it's
Mongan, who is a most inspiring and energetic woman.
I am now offering the cutting-edge
discoveries of the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) which is
a simple, elegant, and fantastically efficient therapy for all kinds of
conditions, both physical and emotional.. Founded by Gary Craig, it is one of the most
rapidly growing therapies of the last decade.
Being a Certified Hypnotherapist through the American Council of
Hypnotist Examiners (A.C.H.E), and through the National Guild of
Hypnotists (NGH), I am also a Certified Practitioner of HypnoBirthing.
In these experiences with hypnosis, HypnoBirthing, and related
therapies, my love and direction for this field is certainly
confirmed. It is an
exciting and wondrous profession.... one which I would be honored to share with you.
