Significant or unexpected life or body changes can be heartbreaking, devastating, disorienting or merely frustrating. Psychotherapy and counseling can help you identify unhealthy thoughts or responses to the change, help you develop better coping skills, find resources or make new plans. In therapy, there is a safe place to express feelings of loss, without judgment.
And sometimes these life changes become catalysts to dive deeper, reexamine beliefs, take a fresh look at well-established habits. Hypnotherapy, the use of guided relaxation, imagery and positive suggestion, tailored specifically for what you’ve experienced and what you wish to experience going forward, can be the essential ingredient in creating a more authentic, fulfilling life. The brilliant songwriter Leonard Cohen’s has the perfect lyric, “There are cracks in everything. That’s where the light gets in”. Our wounds can become entrances for the energy of awareness, growth and transformation.
I have been a professional counselor, teacher and storyteller since 1989, and am certified in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy, Clinical Hypnotherapy, NLP and Cellular Release. I received both a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Colorado. I received my certification in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy from the Transpersonal Hypnotherapy Institute in Golden, Colorado, and my certifications in Clinical Hypnotherapy and NLP from the Hypnotherapy Academy of America in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I received my certification in Cellular Release from the Colorado School of Counseling Hypnotherapy. I am a member of the Colorado Association of Psychotherapy, The International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association, and certified in Clinical Hypnotherapy by the American College of Hypnotherapy Examiners.
I first became interested in hypnotherapy while using guided imagery and visualization while working as a counselor with cancer patients. After experiencing how gentle and effective these methods could be, I was inspired to incorporate visualization and imagery into my own counseling work, and subsequently became certified in hypnotherapy and NLP as well. My teachers and professional mentors have told me that I have a calm and compassionate presence, the ability to listen fully and intuitively, and a gift for choosing the processes, imagery and metaphors which will be most helpful and meaningful for each client.
In keeping with my desire to support and assist clients in significant life transitions, I have become a certified wedding officiant and celebrant. I perform weddings, baby naming ceremonies, and other significant celebrations.

As a Professional Counselor, Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and teacher, I am able to gently guide you through a process of creative self-exploration, within a safe, caring therapeutic environment, so that you can navigate life’s changes gracefully.
divorce, single parenting, car accidents, career change, remarriage and midlife. So I can empathize. And, as part of my own healing process, I’ve been through counseling, hypnotherapy and NLP myself. I’ve experienced how helpful and powerful these tools can be in the hands of the right therapist. And those experiences have inspired me to receive the professional education, training and mentoring necessary to be able to assist others.
It is helpful to find a therapist you can trust and feel comfortable with. I promise I will work with you respectfully, compassionately, and with my full attention. As we work together, you will learn to use the power of your subconscious mind, so that you can let go of limitations, discover inner resources you may not even have known you had, and create the life you want.

When the solution to a problem or the inspiration for a creative project came to you instantly, without your having to think about it? These insights and inspirations come from your subconscious mind, which is the part of your mind I can help you to access, both in session and on your own. As you travel through the landscape of your subconscious mind, you learn more about your deepest desires, talents, and dreams. You also discover the internal blocks that have kept you from reaching those dreams. And you find the tools and gifts that lie within you which can help you remove those blocks and enjoy the inspiration and clarity to achieve your goals and live your dreams.
Hypnotherapy processes are pathways into your subconscious mind. The subconscious is a part of the mind which many of us know little about, yet the subconscious is the source of many valuable tools, treasures and talents. All of your sudden insights, flashes of clarity and wellsprings of creativity come from your subconscious. All of your memories live there. Through hypnotherapy your body and conscious mind are relaxed and your attention is directed inward. You are then able to locate and activate your personal internal guidance system. AND YOU ARE ABLE TO REVISIT AND TRANSFORM OLD MEMORIES, HIDDEN BELIEFS AND NEGATIVE BEHAVIORS, PLANT THE SEEDS FOR MORE EFFECTIVE AND HELPFUL BEHAVIORS, AND GREATER FREEDOM AND HAPPINESS.
The initials NLP stand for Neuro-Linguistic Programming” NLP was developed by psychologists and computer scientists who were interested in discovering how we code experience in language and memory, and how we can change our experiences just by changing the way we code them. I find NLP to be a perfect complement to hypnotherapy, as both methods help you bring about positive change from the inside out. NLP processes are extremely effective for, among other things, relieving pain and allergy symptoms, eliminating phobias, and defusing traumatic memories.
My clients have been able to achieve deep, powerful and long-lasting results. Because hypnotherapy and NLP directly address the root causes of issues or challenges, length of treatment is typically short, usually between two and six months. Many clients report significant improvements within as little as 1 or 2 sessions. However, depending on their goals, some clients choose to continue working with me for up to a year.
Individual sessions are $100 per hour, and the average session lasts for an hour and a half. Package prices for multiple sessions are also available. Since each session builds on the session before it, I often recommend that clients commit to at least 4-6 sessions, after which time we can review your goals and your progress and determine whether or not more sessions are necessary.
