Hypnosis has been a life long passion for me.  Ever since I was young I had a deep curiosity for how the mind works.  I can still remember the first time I saw a hypnotist on T.V. who helped someone change their life, I was both amazed and hooked!  Since then I have been on an incredible journey.

In 2010 I opened Philadelphia Hypnosis where I still see clients during the week.  In 2012 I partnered with Sarah and Shawn Carson and am now a trainer at the International Center for Positive Change and Hypnosis.  In addition to the NLP trainings and advanced workshops we offer, we are 3 of only 25 people world wide certified to teach Igor Ledochowski’s Conversational Hypnosis Professional Hypnotherapy Certification Program.

I am also the co-author of “Quit: The Hypnotist’s Handbook To Running Effective Stop Smoking Sessions”, “The Power of Hypnotic Influence”, “The Swish”, and “The Visual Squash”.

Outside of the hypnosis world I was a university professor for 7 years in the fields of comparative religions and anthropology.  Currently along with teaching NLP and Hypnosis I am also pursuing my interests in corporate trainings.
