Master Therapeutic Imagery Specialist


Cher-20wI hope to answer some questions you might have about Hypnosis, my practice, and how it might help you in your life.  We all have things that we know needs to change.  Sometimes it’s hard to know how to make those changes, sometimes we are lazy and just ignore them, and sometimes we aren’t even aware that we have them.

Have you ever made a snap judgment or decision where you quickly said, “no,” and then wondered why you said it so automatically?  Maybe you didn’t really mean to say no.

Have you ever experienced sweaty palms and a nervous stomach before an interview or felt awkward speaking in a group situation?  Has the fear of an illness made you anxious or depressed?

Have you ever  felt out of focus with school, work, or even your golf game?  Can’t sleep?

If you can relate to any of these scenarios or other issues affecting your life in a negative way, Hypnosis and Imagery is a very effective way to change those blocks getting in the way of creating a more productive you!

About Cher

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, a city that I truly adore, especially the beaches where I spent most of my time outside of school and work.  I spent many hours sitting on cliffs overlooking the vast ocean contemplating life, people, and what my destiny was to be.  I knew I was very creative early on.  Not only did I have a good imagination but I became very good at manifesting things to happen in the future. Though some good and some bad, I was always on a quest to find my true self.  Two things I have always known about myself is that I love to communicate with people and I need to express myself through art and design.  So, after art school at UCLA and becoming a graduate of Woodbury University in Graphic Design and Advertising, I spent many years working in those fields, always incorporating human behavior and how the mind works into all projects. Advertising is about appealing to one’s suggestibility…why someone needs to buy a certain product.  Hypnosis works on one’s suggestibility because the client needs and wants a new behavior…. and that’s where I can help. With my innate understanding of human nature, my creative background, and the everyday challenges of raising a blended family, I know you will find my individualized approach to therapy very effective.

A life changing event happened to me while attending school at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute.  As a person who has endured unexplainable chronic pain most of her life, always investigating new doctors and new drugs, I  eventually found a renowned Rhuematologist who told me I had something called Fibromyalgia.  Twenty-five years ago that was a diagnosis that wasn’t really accepted in the medical community as it is today. I was actually happy to have been labeled with it! “I was relieved, I wasn’t crazy, and finally I had something to believe in, it was real!” I felt that pain was my “jailor” and I was captive to it.  Then slowly I learned through my extensive training at HMI that pain is only a perception and that once I changed my belief system about it I could actually take charge of it.  I now live a drastically better life and look forward to helping others in their health issues or with their individual blocks that keep them from obtaining their personal best.

My practices


It is my deepest desire to inspire and motivate my clients to a better understanding of themselves through the powerful modalities of Hypnosis and Imagery.  I will help you to disengage old negative belief systems, activate new positive ones and then help to reinforce your new achievable goals. I value everyone’s individuality and am mindful at all times.  In my practice I am committed to inspire hope and change, and to nurture the well-being of the whole person by respecting their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
