Do you have business or personal goals that somehow you never reach? Hypnosis can help and has been a significant motivator for clients as well as personally. Hypnosis helped me manage two businesses and build one to an award winning level that I sold for a profit. I often have insight about how a business can run more effectively and what changes you can make to have it run more easily for you and your family. Let’s get you there together with Hypnosis!
I have a PhD in Clinical Psychology, am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and have special certification in Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy (and certifications within that certification!) as well as Couples Counseling and Perinatal Mood Disorders.
Yes, I see people for other problems as well. I often work with parents who are wanting to parent completely differently than how they were raised, who know the effects of their own parenting and want something better for their own children. My clients want to build more trust in their close relationships and reduce the long-lasting effects of toxic parents or Narcissistic Personality Disordered (NPD) parents. Results of that type of parenting are often relationship issues, high anxiety, often feeling unstable and sometimes depression.
To schedule an appointment, please call 954-309-9071. To protect your privacy and confidentiality, I handle all calls personally. If I’m in session, leave me a voice mail and I’ll return your call during my allotted telephone hours to schedule your consultation.
I run the Hypnotize Me podcast and talk about a variety of topics related to hypnosis. Give it a listen on the Podcast page!
I’ve been a yoga teacher for over 15 years. I was the founder of the award winning Yogafairy Prenatal Yoga company, won The 2014 Top 100 Leading Moms in Business award, and ran the company for close to 15 years before selling the company in May of 2016. My prenatal yoga classes have been repeatedly featured in the Sun Sentinel and the Miami Herald. I have two kids, a cat and a rescue dog who I love to walk. My home has been home to numerous sets of hamsters, mice, gerbils, hermit crabs and a guinea pig. But I think the easiest, most low-maintenance pets were definitely the snails.
Service is an important part of my life. I donate free therapy to veterans and their families as part of Give an Hour, donate my time as a board member of the Florida Society of Clinical Hypnosis, and volunteered at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital.

I graduated Cum Laude, with special honors in psychology, from the University of Texas at Austin in 1992. I completed doctoral studies at Nova Southeastern University in 1998, specializing in the treatment and evaluation of families, individuals and couples.
Shortly after earning my PhD, I felt burned out, having gone straight through. I left the field and pursued a technical career for many years doing project management and launching the first website to do online trading of international securities. Then I had babies and stayed home with them while doing some consulting on the side and growing my prenatal yoga business. Those days were not all happy shiny. There were some good days, but there were also really difficult and emotional days. In fact, I have a whole chapter in my book, “There goes the Brainstem: Tales from the Trenches of Early Motherhood” about how I’m not a baby person and how difficult those days were for me.
I saw a divorce coming and returned to the field of psychology in 2008. When I returned, I loved it. It was nothing like when I left 10 years before. I worked in several group practices and then opened my own private practice located in the Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County area in Hollywood, Florida in 2010 where I’ve been happily ever since.
