I am a person who helps others reach their full potential and live a fulfilled life, and I have received my certifications in hypnotherapy and life coaching. With many God-given talents which have led to my success with these two modalities, including the ability to listen to not only what is said but what is not said, compassion, transparency, radar instincts, and the ability to make people feel comfortable and trusting and willing to talk openly with me. Let’s see how we can work together!
My home office is in Northern Illinois for face-to-face appointments. However, hypnotherapy can also be done by web video such as Zoom or Skype. Life coaching can be done via all the above plus telephone.
As a certified hypnotherapist, I work with your subconscious mind to end habits that no longer serve you. Hypnotherapy assists life coaching when we may run into blocks. Hypnotherapy can stand on its own and does not have to be used in conjunction with life coaching. Examples of that include:
- Weight reduction
- Smoking cessation
- Relieving anxiety
- Pain management
- Increasing productivity
- Reducing stress
- Much more
Hypnotherapy is hypnosis whereby we work with your subconscious mind to change habits or instill new habits for a more successful life. Hypnosis uses Alpha and Theta states to create change.
Beta = The normal wakening state when you are fully aware of everything going on around you, including sights, sounds, smells, etc. You are in beta state when you are talking to your boss about an important project.
Alpha = This is the relaxed state, much like being in a daydream state. In this state you are able to access creativity and visualization. You are in this state when you are driving to work and realize you are there already without remembering every mile you just passed.
Theta = A deeper state of relaxation, and a very common state of hypnosis. Theta allows you to access memories. You are in this state when you are first falling asleep or first waking up from sleep, a bit groggy and “out of it” and feeling like a twilight state.
Delta = Occurs when you are sleeping and allows your body to heal. Your conscious mind is not aware of your surroundings. You are in this state when you are sound asleep.
We only operate with about 10% of our conscious mind. The remaining 90% of our mind is the subconscious. It is from the subconscious mind that we know how to brush our teeth, drive to work, make breakfast, etc. All habitual routines come from our subconscious mind. Therefore, when you want to change a habit, oftentimes to be effective you need to work at the subconscious level to break or change that habit since that is where it originates. It is when you are hypnotized that the hypnotist can reach the subconscious mind.
Many people have misconceptions about hypnosis. No, I will not have you skwak like a chicken (although I could, but that is saved for stage hypnotists for effect). A person is fully aware when they are hypnotized and always hear what the hypnotist is saying to them. It is imperative to have an introductory session so the hypnotist can better understand the situation. The best example I have for this is overeating. For me, to be most impactful I want to know if you are a comfort eater, have a sweat tooth, have a need to clean plate, etc. Sure, I can help you lose weight, but to know what your triggers and habits are will help me to better help you.
I can help you with blocks that you may have. Specifically, I can help with breaking bad habits such as smoking or over-eating. I can help you start healthy habits in your life. I can also help you with stress management.

Listen to my interview with Noomii, a coach-finding website, which tells you a bit more about my ideal client and the outcomes I can help you achieve.
Life coaching is working directly with a person to help them reach a goal or goals that they have. Oftentimes people already know what they need or want, but they need an unbiased, non-judgmental person to listen to them and allow them time to talk things out and through. Once a desired outcome has been determined, a life coach helps you create the steps to reach your goal. We hold you accountable. We give you certain tasks to complete before we meet again. We are here to help ensure your success.
Based on my life experiences and skill sets, I have narrowed my niche market to Confidence Coaching and Relationship Recovery. I also host Empowerment Workshops and Online Courses.
Do you desire to take control over your own life and begin living the life of your dreams? As a confidence coach, I work with people who have a drive and passion to be a better version of themselves but don’t know where to start, or need a reminder that they are enough and are deserving of great things in their lives.
As your coach, I start with a thorough intake form to better understand where you are in your life – your highest highs and your lowest lows – in all aspects of your life, including family, career, hobbies, spirituality, and so much more. Once we determine the most appropriate starting point, we will set goals that will be the most impactful for you. As your coach, I help guide, push and direct you towards success as defined by YOU!

I personally went through a year-long, difficult divorce, I understand first-hand how hard it is. Even if you are the person initiating the divorce or breakup, it does not make it any easier! I teach you how to love yourself through unlovable times. To be very clear though. I am NOT a counselor or a therapist, so I am not able to counsel you through your breakup. Rather, I can help you look 12-24 months past your breakup, so you can successfully rebuild your life and come out a survivor and never a victim!
