She specializes in medical hypnosis by physician/therapist referral, helping people manage pain, symptoms and side effects from the treatment of chemotherapy and radiation, symptoms from anxiety disorders, digestive disorders, and assists clients in preparation for surgery and transplantation – pre through post hospital stay. She is highly trained in numerous disciplines of hypnotism and offers consulting services and supervision to other hypnotists, hypnotherapists and medical professionals.  She donates approximately 300 hours of her time yearly to clients seeking hypnosis support for cancer and/or other medically diagnosed issues.

Professional and amateur athletes have been booking appointments for Sports Hypnosis to create peak performance enhancement of their game, focus, and confidence during tournaments and competitions for all sports (golf, tennis, surfing, and more).

She works with clients from around the world who come to Maui or request phone/skype sessions seeking out her specialized services and techniques.

She is a gifted intuitive, sensitive to the needs and concerns of others, and has always been drawn to helping people from children to the elderly. Giving back to the community is a big part of her life. When time permits, she enjoys volunteer work, training therapy dogs and animals, evaluating and testing therapy dogs, emotional support and service dogs and riding horses in the emerald green pastures of upcountry Maui. Her love for animals is complemented by her non-profit work as the Director of the Animal-Assisted Therapy/Activities and Humane Animal Education Programs at Haku Baldwin Center, a non-profit organization. She visits over 400 patients monthly with therapy animals, educating children on the care of animals in addition to helping people in her hypnosis private practice.
