Taking Time to Tune in Together
Having been born in Israel to immigrants from the former Soviet Union and growing up from age 6 in South Africa, I consider myself a citizen of the world. This rich heritage fueled my love of travel, passion for learning and understanding people from many cultures and countries. Add to that my fascination with holistic healing/ psychology and especially the power of the subconscious mind and my commitment to making a positive impact in the world and perhaps you may begin to appreciate the long and windy road that has led me to launch my practice as a hypnotherapist.
As a rebellious and strong willed teenager I took every opportunity to test limits and explore new places and philosophies and moved into my own home at 17. My dream to travel the world was a constant companion and by age 26 I’d lived and worked in South Africa, the United Kingdom, Canada and was settling into a new life in Los Angeles after a solo 6 month backpacking trip across the United States.
In 2008 I met and married my soulmate. I was 30 years old and felt ready to conquer the world. Being an adventurous spirit I was nervous about parenthood but knew I wanted a family. 8 years of unexplained infertility followed. As per my usual optimistic outlook I made the best of it and pursued my dream of travel. My husband and I explored a new continent each year that our longing for a child remained unfulfilled.
7 continents in 7 years.
We spent 2016 New Year’s Eve marveling at the serenity and untouched perfection of the Antarctic Coastline with icebergs the size of mountains floating by and multiple whale and penguin sightings. I returned home complete and ready for whatever destiny would unfold. The very next month we had a successful IVF procedure and my first son was born at the end of October. We were blessed with our second son in 2018 with no medical intervention. Both labors were labors of love, the first lasting 17 hours with an epidural, the 2nd was a classic Hypnobirthing lasting 5 hours with no drugs, tears or complications.
During this same time period I suffered the painful loss of 3 close family members. Their deaths and the concurrent birth of my boys highlighted the cycle of life and death for me and underlined life’s fragility and the importance of living to our fullest potential.
For over a decade I’d worked at Executive level positions in various non-profit organizations, putting my energy into making a difference, helping others and building relationships. I’d also been doing spiritual counselling, coaching and empowering many in my community. But it was no longer enough…
Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that grants the therapist and client direct access to the subconscious mind, exploration and a positive reset becomes possible. This is the ultimate mind body connection. Hypnosis embeds the seeds for modification in challenging behavior and allows people to create long lasting shifts in their lives to experience goal fulfillment, success, happiness and prosperity.
The realization that I could hold a vision of success - for my clients and defined by my clients - and be part of assisting them to achieve their goals and smash through their obstacles inspires and motivates me beyond what words can express.
Call me today to schedule a free in person or phone consultation to discuss your challenges and goals and assess if I can be of assistance to you.

I work fast. I’ve found that there is no need for years to pass while you wait to see if something changes. I see clients for a first session that is in depth, and intensive. We get clear about the goals. We create a plan to achieve them. We support that plan with hypnosis so that your habit brain and creative brain are in agreement. Everything moves along much more smoothly. And who doesn’t want that? I am privileged to work guiding people back to their personal power and infinite potential, helping them to see life differently, giving them the skills and confidence to fulfill their personal vision, and helping them make positive, transformational and permanent life changes.”
