"I have the greatest job in the world! It is my privilege to work with amazing people, to help them develop their life resources and coach them as they choose to live with vigor, good fortune and purpose. It doesn't get any better than that!
"I work with each client to understand how their unique habit system works. We then set goals toward better managing the incredibly powerful resources of the habit system; goals that are well-formed and compelling. I then coach each client through the process of turning around the part of the habit system that is producing problem behavior and unwanted emotion, directing these immensely talented (and unappreciated!) resources to work toward the goals we just set. It's fast, it's fun, and best of all, IT WORKS!
"30 years ago, when I was learning the practice of traditional hypnosis, I was also a student of advanced communication theory and semiotics under Terrence W. Deacon, one of the foremost living researchers in mind and human language; Terry is now on the faculty of Harvard Medical School. My approach to the field of hypnotherapy is grounded in practical therapeutic tradition as well as on-going, rigorous academic study.
"I sustain a passion for the systems and structures that underlie human communication and creative imagination. I am especially interested in those elements of the mind that operate largely outside our day-to-day awareness, those involved with habit, emotion and motivation. (And heart-beat, and grammar, and walking, and breathing...) I view my role in therapy to model these structures in ways that offer my clients simple, powerful tools for making creative choices, often where those choices have slipped from awareness.
"Feeling good is your birthright. I invite you to Try It!"
