I began my career as a counselor in private practice over forty years ago in the Chicago area, licensed as a Clinical Professional Counselor. During those years my practice evolved to include individual, couple, and family counseling, hypnosis to help individuals change behaviors, business counseling, teaching meditation to individuals and groups, and speaking to audiences about various topics I work with, I have helped thousands of individuals, couples, and businesses through counseling, teaching and hypnosis.
I have been helping individuals and couples to improve their lives and reach their full potential through counseling. I have worked successfully with children as young as four years of age and have also been very successful working with adolescents as well as all other ages.
I have been helping large and small businesses for over thirty years to improve their operations, their communication, and their bottom lines. My expertise is in medical/dental practices, transportation companies, commercial real estate firms, insurance companies, automobile dealerships, and hospice. I have also used hypnosis in workshops and seminars for stress reduction, weight loss and smoking cessation.
I received my certification as a meditation teacher in 2001, and have enjoyed helping my meditation students learn how to meditate or for those already meditating, to improve their meditation practice.
In 2007, I went back to graduate school to become licensed in the State of Florida as a Mental Health Counselor. In 2008, I relocated to Delray Beach, Florida. I am in private practice offering the same services here as I have over the years in Chicago.
Along with cognitive therapy I offer hypnosis to those who may benefit from it. Hypnosis is a powerful tool when used properly by a professional and has the potential to be extremely helpful in many situations. I offer introduction to meditation classes for those beginning meditation as well as those wishing to review their techniques. I go into businesses with the goal of strengthening communication, operations, and profits, as well as offering stress reduction, smoking cessation, & weight loss workshops with hypnosis.
