Background Information:
I am a Board Certified Diplomate of the the National Guild of Hypnotists, which is the highest level of certification a Consulting Hypnotist can earn.

I specialize in working with more difficult cases, and I wrote the curriculum used by the National Guild of Hypnotists to train practitioners to do complementary medical work. At my practice in Wheaton, Illinois, I seek to make my work helpful for a wide range of issues, with a special interest in issues related to health and well-being. While neither a physician nor psychotherapist, my expertise is in helping people make their own right decisions and get in touch with their own healing power.

I have a lifelong interest in hypnotism starting when I was about ten years old. That interest continued and extended as my education went forward. Along the way I studied with some of the foremost hypnotic practitioners in the world, and rose in rank and certification in the Guild. I have held a seat on the Advisory Board of the Guild for many years.
