Education and Training: I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist where I received my training from the Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy in Tampa, FL.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Meredith College.
Notice: AS THE STATE OF NC HAS NOT ADOPTED EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING STANDARDS FOR THE PRACTICE OF HYPNOTISM, THIS STATEMENT OF CREDENTIALS IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. Hypnotism is a self-regulating profession and its practitioners are not licensed by state governments. I am not a physician nor a licensed health care provider and may not provide a medical diagnosis nor recommend discontinuance of medically prescribed treatments. If a client desires a diagnosis or any other type of treatment from a different practitioner, the client may seek such services at any time. In the event my services are terminated by a client, the client has a right to coordinated transfer to another practitioner. A client has a right to refuse hypnotism services at any time. A client has a right to be free of physical, verbal or sexual abuse. A client has a right to know the expected duration of sessions, and may assert any right without retaliation.
Redress: I am a certified member of the International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapist, and practice in accordance with its Code of Ethics. If you have a complaint about my services or behavior that I cannot resolve for you personally, you may contact the International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapist at One Tampa City Center, Suite #3415, 201 North Franklin Street, Tampa, FL 33602 (Complaints must be in writing setting forth the basis of the claim). Other services than my own may be available to you in the community. You may locate such providers in our area. As my client you have the right to refuse any aspect of services or to completely terminate services at any time, or to choose another practitioner.
Fees: Fees are due at the time of each session in the form of Venmo, cash, HSA card, or credit card. You will be given a 14-day notice of any change in fees. I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy and clients are charged for the entire session if they do not call to cancel or reschedule in accord with this 24-hour notice.
Confidentiality: I will not release any information to anyone without a written authorization from you, except as provided for by law. You have a right to be allowed access to my written record about you. As my client you have the right to complete and current information concerning any aspect of the professional/client relationship.
Insurance: I suggest you think of my services as something that you will pay for personally that will both protect your privacy and help you value the work you are doing more. In general, most insurance companies do not like to cover hypnotic services, and I caution you not to expect them to do so.
My Approach: It is my goal to help you to achieve lasting results through the use of Hypnosis, Parts Work, Meditation, Regressions and other related self-help modalities. Through the power of your own mind, I will assist you in reaching your goals in a way that you and I both agree to be in your best interest and in a way that is in compliance with state and federal laws, as well as with the standards of the organizations to which I belong. I agree to use my experience to facilitate the changes as are mutually agreed to be in your best interest. I am professionally committed to mobilizing your inner resources in the shortest time possible.
Hypnotherapy is a self-regulated profession and does not qualify for state licensing in the United States. The International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists is the credentialing body for The Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy, a Florida Department of Education state licensed school offering career Diplomas in Hypnotherapy, Clinical Hypnotherapy and Transpersonal Hypnotherapy. The IAIH’s Ethics Committee can suspend or revoke certification of its members. Certification is awarded to those who complete 500 hours of training and receive State Licensed Diplomas from FIH. Alternatively, certification and membership is also granted to a hypnotherapist who has attended a state licensed school or the international equivalent, received at least 300 hours of training, and who has successfully completed the IAIH Interpersonal Hypnotherapy Course and passed the IAIH practical and written exam. The IAIH has the highest standards and requirements for certification of any major hypnotherapy credentialing body currently in the United States. Hypnotherapists certified by IAIH have agreed to provide professional services in accordance with the IAIH Code of Ethics. IAIH Hypnotherapists practice within the scope of their individual credentials and engage in the profession legally and ethically. IAIH Hypnotherapists also understand and embrace the hypnosis laws that regulate our profession on international, federal, state, county and city levels.
The IAIH works with state and federal legislators to raise the industry standards and protect the practice of hypnosis by qualified practitioners. When you see the IAIH logo you have the assurance that the hypnotherapist is highly trained and certified. Clients choosing an IAIH Certified Hypnotherapist are entering into a professional relationship knowing it is a cooperative relationship designed to assist the client to reach their goals in a timely manner. The IAIH defines hypnosis as a natural, yet altered, state of mind where communication and responsiveness with the subconscious mind is present. Ultimately hypnosis transcends the critical and analytical level of mind and thought, providing a natural yet altered state wherein practitioners can help facilitate the acceptance of suggestions, directions and instructions desired by the client. Through IAIH hypnotic techniques and teachings the client’s deep inner mind can access information and insights necessary to extend themselves and others the forgiveness, understanding, compassion, acceptance and ultimately love necessary to produce a compassionate philosophy and state of being. IAIH Hypnotherapists are committed to honoring the importance of relationships in every aspect of the human experience. In cooperation with clients and with mutually agreed upon goals, IAIH Hypnotherapists utilize their advanced training to personalize an approach to uncover life defeating and limiting belief systems of their clients, identify repeating negative patterns, and use sound principles and techniques to help clients discover their inner transformative power, reframe defeating or negative thoughts into positive truthful thoughts and feelings, and achieve effective and lasting results.
It is the goal of every IAIH Hypnotherapist to help clients achieve their goals as quickly as possible and to become obsolete in the client’s life in a timely manner by empowering each client with powerful techniques to achieve goals and resolve issues through self-hypnosis, hypnotic reprogramming and reframing techniques. The IAIH Interpersonal hypnotherapist will utilize dialogues, and advanced hypnotic techniques honoring the sacredness of the relationship while working to uncover underlying patterns or limiting belief systems and ultimately transforming those to align with the truth that all persons are perfect, whole and complete, and worthy of love, abundance and respect. Through this, the IAIH Interpersonal Hypnotherapist empowers the client, and together they achieve effective and long lasting results.
