I received my hypnotist certification through the National Guild of Hypnotists after training with award-winning hypnotist Linda Williamson at Garrett Wellness Center, the largest hypnosis center in Chicago. My training consists of a wide variety of hypnosis techniques, including Ericksonian, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique which is akin to Thought-Feel Therapy). I am also familiar with and utilize an understanding of the Biocognitive Science model and mindfulness (Mind-Body Code), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and The Work of Byron Katie. I hold additional certification in Pain Management through Ron Eslinger’s Pain Management (Healthy Visions Wellness) program. For over 6 years, I have been working with clients on stress management, increasing motivation, improving self-esteem, enhancing performance, and overcoming unwanted fears and addictive behaviors using contemporary hypnosis techniques.
I have been a guest presenter at the National Guild of Hypnotists International Convention (2013), Hypnothoughts Live Convention (2016) and am a regular guest presenter at NGH Los Angeles meetings. I have also given presentations on hypnosis for local university programs (USC & LMU).
I am the creator of Breakup Recovery Miracle programs for women and am noted for my creative approach to hypnosis with a special emphasis on using story and character development (SYLCAPÉ Method) for personal development. I am also the author of two forthcoming books Steal His Heart, Save Your Life (just not in that order) based on content from my Breakup Recovery Miracle programs and Intuitology: The Mechanics of Intuition for Stress-Free Living based on workshops I’ve conducted in Los Angeles on the same topic.
I am an advocate for the use of science and technology for social concern on a global scale and creating a post-scarcity economic model known as a “natural law, resource-based economy”. The idea behind this concept involves acknowledging that we currently have all the resources and technology required to feed, clothe, shelter, and educate every man, woman and child on planet Earth to a high standard of living…so long as choose to move out of a scarcity-driven monetary system into a high-tech access system that has an overall environmental design accounting for health and wellness requirements (i.e. clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, access to proper nutrition and medical care). The challenge in this idea resides in educating the general public about the benefits and possibilities via a paradigm shift in thinking. While the model may never be realized in my lifetime, I believe it to be a contemporary extension of the civil rights movement and most worthwhile way to approach solving many of our most complex social problems at their root causes. I am sometimes asked to speak publicly on this unique systems-theory approach to solving social issues.
