About Me

In addition to sharing creative beauty in all its forms, and the wanderlust style traveling and ex-pat living I’ve done and really all things Zen, I wanted to share my other areas of Zen expertise, Holistic Hypnotherapy…(and sarcastic humor, but more about that in a blog post!)

Let’s think of all this ‘sharing’ as a Mind*Body*Spirit*Luv kind of thing

…so just a few words not a whole bio, I don’t want to bore you
I want to INSPIRE you to enjoy all of life by tuning in on what just ‘feels right’ (fill in ‘right’ with fun, good vibes, decadent, funny and meaningful or grab your own adjective if you want…)

I’ve been into beauty and the whole health/wellness and Mind*Body*Spirit thing for a long time, I just added LUV because without a big dose of that, what’s the point…and I do mean self love, love of others, love of life and all the good stuff in it! 

So I’ll share this…my first incarnation as a hairstylist bc well, aestetics, and when you look good, you feel better, more confident.

…and one thing I noticed is that once you run your fingers through someone’s hair, something unexplainable happen. People open up and talk, it’s an intimate act and as a person and a client, they wanted to be heard and understood (especially bc I was holding scissors in my hands) 

Funny things happened on the way to the blow dry though, these same people would often seek life advice on just about everything; handling difficult situations with significant other(s), kids, bosses and even challenging strangers.

I felt it was my honor and duty really, to help to positively reframe their outlook and give assertive not aggressive strategies to assist…of course, we reserved all snarky remarks for the fun conversational part of the ‘service’

The second incarnation as a women’s clothing sales representative, again…aestetics, people, look good, feel better…taught me that much of our outer life is reflected in our bodies and how we carry ourselves. 

Our inner reflection of self is often clear to ourselves and others by simply observing our physiology, how we carry ourselves and by how we feel about our own bodies (when no one is looking). 

Are we comfortable in our own skin? 

Are we nourishing it? 

Are we thinking good thoughts about it? 

Are we thinking good thoughts in GENERAL? 

I think we called this ‘attitude’ … but truly your thoughts shape everything about you…Your outlook/worldview, Your body and how you take care of it, Your spirit and what you believe and not believe…and how do you take in life’s beauty whether or not you practice organized religion or spirituality. 

It’s all about congruent and conscious living. 

For me, becoming a Hypnotherapist was just taking those earlier experiences to the next level … and no matter what I talk about on this blog, because my interests are many and varied but number one is definitely people! 

Studying the subconscious mind is just part of taking the question,
‘What makes people tick?’ up a notch and I love sharing that knowledge one-on-one, and as I’m planning right now, using video and/or a podcast eventually…

In my practice, all sessions are done via Skype or Zoom and it’s a journey starting where you’re at in your personal evolution; and just guiding it to happen in its own way and in its own good time. We do no blame, no shame and no judgement sessions and your participation is what propels it.

Special Skills:
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
Hypnosis as well as Time Line Therapy for mastering emotions and shifting energy and beliefs that are no longer serving you.

I’ll leave you with this…

Watch the thoughts and words you say/think about yourself, your subconscious is listening and taking notes
