Hi, my name is Laura and I’m passionate about increasing the quality of your life’s journey, by looking beyond the surface, discovering patterns that no longer serve you and utilizing your inner resources, strengths while integrating new skills and insights through Hypnotherapy and Guided Journeys.
How I got here… 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 variety of people every day! This helped my interest in Psychology blossom!
On one particular day I brought a book with me to read on my break- the latest book off the Psychology shelf; a Hypnosis book. A man at the counter spotted my book and asked if I was interested in hypnosis. I nodded. He was a hypnotist who had missed his ferry… lucky for me.
On my break, we chatted about hypnosis, which 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. This led me down a different career path for a while, in Human Resources. I’d long forgotten about how hypnosis 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, ADD, Past Life Regression, Fear and Anxiety, Inner child healing, Weight loss, Therapeutic imagery, and Trauma.
Having experienced the benefits of mindfulness practices and meditation as well, I decided to integrate these into everything so I have a mind-body-spirit, holistic approach to therapy.
Now I live well with my husband and 2 children in the pacific northwest. We share our love and home with 3 dogs and 3 rabbits! I enjoy reading in the rainy months and road trips to the mesmerizing Oregon Coast on sunny days and spending time as a family!
I know firsthand what it’s like to face challenges and feel the weight of those challenges. 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.
