I’m a Bay Area native and have been a Social Worker for over 35 years. My education, training, personal growth journeys and work experience have shaped the person and professional that I am today. I’ve had extensive experience working with all populations, from children to the elderly, in both the public and private sectors. I earned my Masters Degree in Social Work in 1980 from Sacramento State.
After practicing as a Psychotherapist for 11 years, I chose to move away from that traditional cognitive practice and into the easy, yet powerful, process of hypnosis where people achieve mental, emotional and spiritual healing through the power of their own minds.
Through the use of hypnosis people are empowered to tap into their inner strengths discovering their innate gifts. Healing is often achieved more rapidly than through traditional cognitive therapy because of working with the subconscious mind, a treasure trove of memories, beliefs, gifts, talents, etc.
