About Me

My “That’s Life” name is appropriate to describe my life.  I feel like I’ve already played many different “roles”.  I was a computer programmer for 14 years, a proud mother of two amazing young men, and an artist and sculptor exhibiting in New York for 10 years as they were growing.

Then I tried my hand as a Realtor which worked well until the economy tanked.  I had been active exploring the healing arts for many years and started making organic skin creams and then an organic, gluten free coconut treat.  I found that I could only take that just so far without help, and I could not afford (during this economy) to hire additional help… so blending ALL my prior experience and interests, I branched out once again into the wonderful world of hypnotherapy.

I LOVE the study of consciousness and the personal potential each of us has to live either filled with fear and frustration OR to live focused on the excitement of Life… that would be the HAPPY excitement of Life… like joy and love.  I WANT to focus on my potential and invite YOU to take the step to learn from your past behaviors and relationships to release habits, fears, pain, stress, etc and enhance your potential.  Hypnosis can also be used to reduce physical issues.  Perhaps even eliminate old stuff altogether!

I am an officer on the Board of Directors at the Providence Fire Department in Weddington, North Carolina.  Being involved with the politics at the local and County levels has given me the insight that to achieve does not take the greatest of skills… it only requires an intention to take the steps to achieve.  I say this because it has been my experience that even at the State and County levels our leaders are not smarter, or better than myself.  They have just as many personal issues as me (and some have many more).  What sets them apart is that they have made the effort to be leaders instead of sitting back and hoping life will take care of them.

Every day YOU have this opportunity!!  Make a decision today to let go of old habits that hold you back from achieving what you hope to achieve.  Make the decision today to explore WHY you are having difficulty moving forward in a more positive way.  You DO have potential as long as you have life.  Don’t deny yourself the greatest gift you can receive.

Hypnosis can bring awareness to you about WHY it feels like walking through mud to step beyond the issues which you’ve tried so hard to let go of.  OR, if you have goals to achieve EVEN more… this could be an avenue for you.

There are many modalities out there.  I’ve studied a few of them… Quantum-Touch, PSYCH-K, Cranio-Sacral Therapy… and each provides healing in its own way.  What I also found is that the bottom line is that you must empower yourself to heal.  With awareness comes knowledge, and with knowledge comes a broader range of choices… which IS empowering.

Background:

I am a Certified Hypnotherapist, having studied both Clinical and Transpersonal Hypnosis Techniques to aid in hypnosis for Weight Management, Smoking Cessation, Stress Management, Changing Habits and Overcoming fears.  I am a Certified Consulting Hypnotist in NGH (National Guild of Hypnotism), the oldest hypnotists membership organization founded in 1950. I am also a member of the International Association of Counselors and Therapists (IACT).

I am certified as an NLP Practitioner from the International Institute of Humanistic Neuro-Linguistic Psychology and a graduate from the Institute of Integrated Nutrition (IIN) as a Certified Integrative Nutritional Health Coach.

Bringing around full circle to my interest in consciousness and thoughts, in 2017 I have been certified as a Brain Health Coach from Dr. Amen.  He is a renowned psychiatrist encouraging the use of SPEC scan imaging that measures blood flow and can point to areas of the brain under or over functioning.  This can help pinpoint cause for emotional and/or physical issues without the guesswork.  For my work, understanding the brain provides me insight to offer natural alternatives to balance functions of the brain that can help my clients more easily achieve their goals.
