Hypnotherapist at Udemy

As a psychology professor, I have taught a myriad of courses in the south Florida area. With 15 years experience in post-secondary education, I love helping my students find the best path in the pursuit of their ideal career.  With a Ph.D in general psychology, I have used my knowledge and expertise inside and outside the classroom.  As the owner of CRE8TVE Solutions, a hypnotherapeutic practice, I have helped the following populations overcome their mental health traumas:

  • military personnel
  • domestic violence victims
  • abused (physical, emotional, sexual)
  • at-risk youths and their families
  • couples and families

It is my quest to help my clients remove blocks that limit their growth potential and well-being.
