☯ Transformational Soul Coach ☯ Hypnotherapist ☯ ThetaHealing Practitioner ☯
☯ Energy Healer ☯ Educator ☯ Young Living Essential Oils ☯

I am a Mind-Body Wellness Practitioner, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Life Coach, Educator and Catalyst for change for clients. My passion is integrating the Healing Arts in individual and group sessions to facilitate powerful, transformational shifts.


Early in my 30-year nursing career, I realized there was a limited understanding of Holistic Mind-Body medicine, an essential component to individual well-being and healing. That realization drove me to learn more about the mind-body connection and study under renowned holistic practitioners such as Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Darren Weissman and with visionaries like Denise Linn and Vianna Stibel. I discovered that many people have deeply held limiting beliefs and behaviors that blocks them from reaching their potential. I learned to unlock these negative patterns using effective subconscious mind methods such as hypnosis, ThetaHealing® and LifeLineTechnique® while infusing Soul Coaching.


My commitment to you is to assist you to “Lighten Up and Thrive” and co-create a joy-filled life aligned with your divine purpose!
