Why Work With Me...
I understand what it feels like to hurt...
Health and wellness are a huge priority to me. In 2012, I was headed back into the workforce after raising three amazing children. However, it wasn't long before I recognized something wasn't quite right. After a battery of tests my doctor discovered a benign brain tumor on my balance nerve. (Perhaps caused by my cell phone usage.)
The talented surgeons at Vanderbilt successfully removed the tumor during an extraordinary 10-hour operation. Unfortunately, I suffered many post-op complications with nasty names like meningitis, diabetes, spinal fluid leakage, hypothyroidism, and Cushing's syndrome - to name a few! In order to heal, I went back to school.
When you visit my office you'll see lots of certificates from schools and programs that were awesome to attend, but they didn't progress my health. The one modality that DID help me heal was hypnosis. That's why I'm so passionate. I feel every person has the ability to tap into their inner resources and instruct their body to heal itself. My job is to help you learn how to talk to your brain so you can feel better, stronger, and happier on command! It's not magic, it's a gift from God that I believe we all possess.
The type of hypnosis I perform is not the same as stage hypnosis. I won't ask you to do anything strange, and you'll always be fully aware of what's going on around you. The goal is to get you to relax deeply enough so your critical thinking mind takes a break, and your very powerful subconscious mind, the part that does the actual learning and healing, allows you to work directly with it. Seriously, hypnosis allows you to "talk" directly with your powerful Limbic system which controls all your senses, breathing, heartbeat, and emotions. I know it works, because it works for me 24/7. I no longer require a walker to stay balanced. Through hypnosis, I rewired my brain and changed my life. You can too.
