Work Experience:
Here is a little about my background. I will be happy to tell you more on the phone or when we meet.

First, I am a certified hypnotist who has practiced hypnosis and hypnotherapy for over 25 years and in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts since 1998. My business is helping people bring new possibilities into reality.
My certification is by a national association (The National Guild of Hypnotists). It requires ongoing education and adherence to a rigorous ethical standard.

I have an undergraduate degree in psychology (Hofstra University, 1970) and a MA in Anglo-Irish Studies (University College, Dublin, Eire, 1971) and am a member of Rhode Island Mensa.

Here are some highlights of my career as a hypnotist, hypnotherapist and coach:

1976 - Attended and graduated from the American School of Hypnosis in New York City. Certified for the first time as a hypnotherapist by the National Guild of Hypnotists.

1983 - Developed, produced and marketed Hypnovision Video, the first video program using both hypnosis and subliminal messages. Hypnovision Video was featured on NBC and ABC national news and in many national magazines. The videos and an audio line were distributed nationally by Waldenbooks,
Barnes and Noble, B. Dalton and other outlets in the mid-1980s. Thousands of people have benefited from these programs by purchase as well through rentals, libraries and treatment programs at mental health and addiction recovery clinics. Weight Loss, Stop Smoking, and Stress Release video and audio programs were published in the mid-80s. I added New Millennium Stress Release Video in 2000. This program is available at The Tree of Life Wellness Center.

1988 - 1998 - Training as a coach in Landmark Education's Self Expression Leadership Seminars.

Since 1998 - Full-time practice of hypnotherapy and HypnoCoaching helping a wide variety of people from all walks of life lose weight, stop smoking cigarettes, reduce stress and other changes.
