About your Practitioner
Despite years of psychotherapy and anti-depressants, depression was still with me. Eventually, I found my
way to an NLP Practitioner for help. I was enthralled
with how much my gloom was lifted after just a handful
of NLP sessions.
I decided to pursue NLP in counseling because of how
helpful it has been in my own life. I have a sincere
desire to help others achieve their goals, and I believe
it is within our means and power to alleviate unnecessary
suffering. My objective is to help people get what they
want and achieve their highest dreams. I consider NLP
to be a form of brief therapy that facilitates growth and
change more effectively than anything else I have seen.
After studying NLP for over ten years, I received my Practitioner Certification from
NLP Comprehensive, Boulder, CO, in August, 1996 and Master Practitioner Certification
in February, 1998. I have attended many supplementary NLP workshops and trainings
including the following:
- Core Transformation© (Tamara Andreas)
"Core Transformation offers a profound way to touch the depths of our own soulfulness."
— John Bradshaw
- Healing the Wounded Heart© (Robert McDonald)
- Releasing Emotional Enmeshment© (Robert McDonald)
- Spirit of Personal Wealth (Robert McDonald)
- Tools of the Spirit© (Robert McDonald and Robert Dilts)
- Platform/Presentation Skills (Michael Grinder)
- Negotiation/Mediation Skills (Michael Grinder)
- Ericksonian Hypnosis and the Generative Self (Stephen Gilligan)
- Self-Relations Psychotherapy (Stephen Gilligan)
I am privileged to have studied with some of the giants in the field of NLP
such as Robert McDonald, Charles Faulkner, Connirae and Tamara Andreas,
Michael Grinder, Robert Dilts, Tim Hallbom and Suzi Smith. I have also attended
hypnotherapy workshops with Stephen Gilligan, PhD, and am registered by the
American Board of Hypnotherapy as a Certified Hypnotherapist.
I joined the National Speakers Association (NSA) in 1999 to further my goal
of bringing competence, congruence, and integrity into businesses, associations,
and other types of organizations. My speaking topics include sales training,
stress reduction, negotiation/mediation skills, goal setting, motivation, and more.
