Training and Credentials
I graduated from Bennett/Stellar University in 2008 with certifications as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Master NLP practitioner. Immediately establishing a practice as a Hypnotist/Coach I was hired in Feb 2009 by Positive Changes Hypnosis in Spokane, WA. While working there until April 2017 I was always in search of ways to improve my skills. I received additional training with Stephen Gilligan PhD who studied with Milton Erickson M.D. the father of modern Hypnotherapy. I have been registered in Washington state as a Hypnotherapist since 2008.
As a Hypnotist/Coach at Positive Changes I clocked more than 16,000 hours with clients giving me more one on one time than most hypnotists experience in their entire career. It is this daily practice of working with thousands of unique clients that helped him to create a behavior change model that both explains and simplifies the process. I deliver guidance in a clear and consistent manner that empowers clients to quickly become fully engaged in their personal transformation process.
Tribalize Now: The Practice of Belonging
Surely there must be more! This agreed upon reality that almost all of us accept as the standard operating system of the human being is nothing more than a poorly negotiated treaty that leaves us dependent and at risk. When we begin to discover who and what we are, outside of the stories that we have accepted as our truth, we open ourselves to the possibility of creating something different.
