Welcome to my about page!
So, how does a twenty-five-year career law enforcement officer, mother, and grandmother of two step into a second career of coaching, hypnosis, and tapping?
I believe that all the experiences we go through in life are preparing us for the next step. Never when I began my career with the California Highway Patrol did I imagine it would lead me to consider becoming a hypnotherapist. I didn’t see becoming a birth doula about midway through my law enforcement career either, but that turned out to be another stepping stone on my path.
My first experience with formal hypnosis was when my daughter told me she wanted to use hypnosis for the birth of her first child. So, naturally I decided to become certified to teach parents how to use hypnosis during childbirth. I have had the wonderful experience of witnessing the incredible use of hypnosis in birth many times, including the beautiful births of my three grandchildren.
It was then I realized how powerful our minds are and how we can use hypnosis to effect so many changes in our lives.
After retiring from the CHP, I decided to pursue my certification as hypnotherapist. And the journey continues.
I have discovered my passion is working with people to create change in their lives, releasing non-productive behaviors, and teaching them how to take control of their lives.
As a continual learner, I am always studying and training to increase my knowledge, skills, and abilities. My personal business coach refers to me as a “signer-upper” because I am always looking at ways I can better serve my clients.
When I was introduced to Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT or tapping) I could not wait to obtain my certification as a practitioner, because of the value I knew it would bring to my clients.
Being certified as a HeartMath® Resilience Advantage Training™ Coach allows me to provide clients with techniques to build greater resilience in their lives.
I use a variety of modalities and techniques to guide my clients in a client-centered manner as they work towards achieving their personal goals.
I believe everyone has the knowledge and abilities to discover their own answers, and I am here to support and hold space as they do so.
