WHAT ARE YOUR CREDENTIALS?
After a career in engineering, excruciating pain put me on a path of research and training that introduced me to the mind-body methods that helped me to heal.
I've studied with Medical Doctors, with Shamans, and many healers; some grounded in scientific research, others wildly instinctual.
A graduate of the Academy for Guided Imagery and the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, I'm a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Inner Guidance Life Coach, Mind-Body Skills Advanced Professional, and creator of SMGI - Somatic Mindful Guided Imagery - a root cause resolving method of mind-body exploration, discovery and healing.
