Upon acquiring my certification as a hypnotherapist in 2009 and registering with the state of Washington in 2010, I first opened a private hypnotherapy practice A life Trance Formed Inc. in Oak Harbor, Washington in 2011. In 2015 I also became a certified Vibrational Sound Therapist and in 2017, earned my certification as a Vibrational Sound instructor.

I began an amazing journey into Hypnosis and Neurolinguistics Programming (NLP) searching for ways to deal with the stress of working in the corporate world as a project manager. Little did I know how my life would change with this knowledge.

Since I started this journey, my perception of stress has been transformed and my life changed for the better. You see I was what some people call a "stressaholic" and had no Idea! I was even proud at how well I dealt with stress, I didn't yell, I hardly complained, I just dealt with whatever came my way. But my body was in constant flight or fight mode and I was experiencing a variety of stress related illness; ulcers, gastritis, acid reflex, obesity, depression, chronic neck pain, back pain, headaches, lack of energy, high blood pressure and several colds a year along with other stomach upsets that kept me home from work, family outings and going to the emergency room multiple time a year. By using hypnosis and vibrational sound therapy, I was able to change my view of stress and listen to my body giving me my freedom from letting stress rule my life.

As a scientist (Geologist/Hydrogeologist) I devoted 23 years to the cleanup of environmental contamination in Washington Alaska, and Oregon. At the end of 2015 I left the environmental corporate world to pursue my continued practice of hypnosis, vibrational sound energy, and study of the related fields of neuroplasticity, epigenetics, bio energy fields, electromagnetic fields and their influences on the human body.

What I have learned has improved my life in so many ways and I want to share this with you.
