☯ 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.

WEEK ONE ~ AIR WEEK ~ Clearing Your Mental Body. Clearing Mental Blockages to Excellent Health In the first seven days of the program, you'll focus on clearing mental blockages and barriers that hinder your well-being. You'll also conduct a health assessment and an inner and outer clutter clearing. If you choose only one thing to do for your health, it should be to learn to breathe deeply and fully. During this week, simply focus on your breath. Fill your lungs as much as possible and then exhale as if you're releasing air from a balloon. Throughout this week focus your awareness and attention on the air that surrounds you. The Air element is also associated with inspiration, literally to inspire. This can take the form of what you read, what you think about, and even what you listen to.

WEEK TWO ~ WATER WEEK ~ Clearing Your Emotional Body Water is a great metaphor for emotions and the many transformations possible; from ice to mist or raging river to clear mountain stream, this is the week we cleanse and rejuvenate our soul. It's a myth that good people don't have negative emotions. However, emotions are truly negative if you suppress them or dump them on someone else. Carrying around excess baggage (unprocessed emotions) doesn't promote excellent health. During this week, drink plenty of water. Many health problems can be reduced or even eliminated if the body has enough fluid to cleanse and purify itself. Pay attention to the water that is all around you. As much as possible, share the emotions you experience this week with others, as it can have a powerful impact on your health.

WEEK THREE ~ FIRE WEEK ~ Clearing Your Spiritual Body In the first seven days of the program, you focused on clearing barriers that hindered your health. Usually the greatest blockage is fear, and this is the week when you'll be confronting this emotion. The fastest way to transform your body is through action, but it's easy to hesitate to make changes because of fear—fear of discomfort, of failure, of the unknown, and even of success. Fire Week is the time to look at your fears and take action to overcome them. This week deepens your awareness of the light that's around and within you. Pay attention to the different types of lighting. Fire represents change and transformation, so this is the time to take risks and try relating to your body in different ways.
