Credentials and Degrees

Degree in Clinical Hypnotherapy from the Hypnosis Motivation Institute (; Certified by the American Hypnosis Association

Therapy methods

I use hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic programming to help clients identify the triggers that cause face picking so they can implement healthier coping skills and/or new strategies for dealing with the underlying anxiety. I create a personalized recording of the session which the client can listen to after the session.
