Introduction

I am a LMHC and certified hypnotherapist in private practice near downtown St. Petersburg. I have been working with people for over 25 years and I am passionate about the healing and empowerment of each of us toward whatever is our bliss.

What brings you to the TampaBayHypnotherapy Community Group?

After 25 years of mental health work, I have truly come to believe that hypnosis and related approaches offer some of the most efficient, effective and empowering methods for people to live a life they love. They are also often much misunderstood by the public and by health care practitioners. I started this group to provide a reliable forum in South Pinellas, where people could come together to get and give information, have intelligent discussions about the subjects involved, explore new opportunities for themselves, and develop new skills in a supportive environment.

What is your experience with hypnosis, NLP, Mindfulness meditation, EFT or other mind-body approaches?

I have always had a fascination with "hypnosis" and the power of our unconscious minds-or at least since age 7. After some 25 years in the non-profit mental health world, I left to pursue an in-depth education in hypnosis, which has spanned the past 3 years. Today, I am living my own personal dream (proving anything is possible when you have the right tools) and run a growing practice specializing in clinical and medical applications of hypnosis.

What do you most hope to gain from the group?

I see myself as a part of a wave of "new awareness" in our world, even if it is just a "re-awakening" to something as old as man himself-the power of the mind to effect our experience. With tools like hypnosis, mindfulness, EFT, NLP and others- people can modify their experiences so that they have less suffering; more joy, more peace, more health...They learn to manage their experience instead of their experiences managing them. I don't claim to know everything about these subjects, and I hope to learn from others as much as I can. I do know enough to contribute to the rising awareness-of the power we all have within us-and I feel a passion to do so in a way that is open, rational, and inviting to as many people as possible. I hope to share and I also hope to learn from others.
