Our Story

I have worn many hats during my life. Upon graduating from Saint Catherine's School for Childcare Technicians, I enjoyed working in New Born and Premature nurseries at Brady Maternity Hospital in Albany, New York. Six months after making a move to the new GYN unit at Saint Peter's Hospital in Albany, I chose to care for our newborn and two more to follow for the next ten years while taking night courses toward a teaching degree. Soon after graduation, I became a secondary teacher at Saint Anne Institute school for incarcerated teenage girls. As chairman of the Health Education department, I taught health and developed the Effective Parenting Program, retiring after thirty years.

My husband and I traveled far and wide for seven years. Upon returning from a 37-day trip circumnavigating Australia, my spiritual guides led me to a newsletter from a nearby spiritual center that I occasionally attended with our daughter. They strongly suggested that I sign up for a weekend course in hypnosis. I had zero interest in doing so, but they persisted. Led by my trust in my guides, I signed up and was hooked the very first day.

Although I became certified and practiced locally, it wasn't until I met my mentor, Cal Banyon, from the Banyon Institute of Hypnosis in Dallas, Texas, that I found the most effective techniques to help clients. I went to Texas and studied intensely. Presently I am a 5 PATH® Advanced Master Hypnotist, a 7th Path® Self-Hypnosis teacher, and a Certified Professional Hypnosis Instructor. My decision to become a "5-PATHer" has driven my passion for guiding others to become what they were born to be.

We are called the "1 percenters" because there is less than 480 5- PATHers in the world. Our skills are unparalleled because our training and support are the best.
