I’ve been a certified NLP practitioner since 1983, am recognized by the National Guild of Hypnotists and The Transpersonal Hypnotherapy Institute as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, and have trained in altered states processes and Ericksonian hypnosis. Beginning with five years of intensive Zen Buddhist practice, I have continued for over 35 years the practice and study of Buddhist and Siddha Yoga meditation and philosophy with recognized masters of these traditions. I’m the author of the book and training program, Finding True Magic, which synthesizes the insights and disciplines of hypnosis, NLP and a variety of meditative techniques to create a dynamic process of change for the client’s benefit.
I work with individuals, families and groups. Sessions are done by phone as well as in person. In my work with business and professional communities, I draw on over 20 years of experience in sales, management, and as an entrepreneur in applying these therapeutic techniques in professional contexts. I am the founder and director of the Institute for Therapeutic Learning, a Washington State licensed vocational school offering Transpersonal Hypnotherapy/NLP Certification trainings, seminars and mentorship programs.
