School Director and Clinical Hypnotherapist
I am founder and director of the Institute of Transformational Hypnotherapy in Lansing, Michigan. As the primary lecturer at the Institute, I am responsible for the development of the curriculum and presentation of both academic course work and applied practicum experiences. Completion of three course sequences in clinical hypnosis leads to certification as clinical hypnotherapist. I lecture and conduct workshops nationally on hypnosis and applications of clinical hypnotherapy.
As a practicing hypnotherapist, I work with a wide range of presenting problems including the following: pain control, addictions, overweight, phobias, prolonged states of depression, physical illness, allergies, childhood traumas, disrupted relationships, work related stress, past-life regression and enhancing creativity. Many of my clients use hypnotherapy as a single therapeutic modality. However, health care professionals and clients also use my hypnotherapy services as an adjunct to medical treatment and psychotherapy. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches and teach individuals and groups about hypnotherapy and holistic mind/body therapies.
