Welcome to Inspired Meditations. My name is Laura and I’m passionate about increasing the quality of your life’s journey by looking beyond the surface, discovering subconscious patterns that no longer serve you, and strengthening your inner resources through meditation, mindfulness, hypnosis and guided imagery.
Once upon a time, I was a waitress at a busy restaurant near the Seattle Ferry terminal. I had the pleasure of interacting with a wide variety of people every day! This sparked my interest in psychology!
On one particular day I brought a hypnosis book to read on my break. At the time (pre-Google era), I was reading the entire psychology shelf at the library. A man at the counter spotted my book and asked if I was interested in hypnosis. He was a hypnotist who had missed his ferry… lucky for me, because I got the pleasure of chatting with him about hypnosis. This ignited my interest even more. Over the next few months I trained in hypnosis, helping myself and friends with various goals.
Eventually, I received a Degree in Psychology and took extra courses in Buddhism that led to my interest in mindfulness.
After college, I wanted to make a difference in people’s work lives, so I became a Human Resources Specialist. I’d long forgotten about how hypnosis and meditation had enriched my life until I was burned out and overwhelmed. I was working long hours, stressed, and started accumulating bad lifestyle habits.
I visited my integrative doctor who guided me in a hypnosis session for sleep. Soon, I was sleeping like a baby. The power and the peace I felt made a huge difference in my life and I knew I wanted to help people achieve the same.
I became reacquainted with Hypnosis in the best way possible- I chose the nation’s #1 Hypnotherapy school, a one-year study program at the only accredited college for hypnotherapy in the U.S., Hypnosis Motivation Institute. In addition to receiving a 500 hour certification with honors, I received specialty certifications in Energy Healing, Hypnosis for Grief and Loss, Hypnosis and Pain, Past Life Regression, Fear and Anxiety, Inner child healing, Weight loss, and PTSD/Trauma.
In addition, I studied with Sean Fargo, Mindfulness Educator, and received a Mindfulness Teaching Certificate.
Having experienced the benefits of these tools, I feel more equipped to handle life’s inevitable ups and downs, and help others thrive as well.
I integrate mind, body, and spirit into my meditations and sessions. I see the whole person, especially how to use your subconscious to awaken your best self!
I know firsthand what it’s like to face challenges and feel the weight of those challenges yet wanting to live a fulfilling life. I enjoy working with those who have experienced overwhelm, burnout, chronic pain/illness, healthy lifestyle challenges, and more. I’m an over-comer of trauma and chronic illness and I believe we all have that innate ability to tap into the healing and higher aspects of ourselves.
