Annie is a certified hypnotherapist and graduate of our accredited hypnosis certification training program Her mission is to help people get fast, effective relief and permanent results using insight based and a systematic approach to hypnosis.

What Was Your Goal in Training to Be a Hypnotist with Cascade Hypnosis Center?

My goal was to certify myself to provide spiritually-based, self-care tools for the general public.

Who do you really want to help with hypnosis - Who is your ideal client? 

My ideal client is an individual or group of individuals who want to enhance the quality of their lives and influence others to do the same. Therefore, my ideal client is anyone who cares about themselves and is ready to eliminate their unwanted behaviors, or enhance their perspective in such a way as to contribute themselves to the betterment of those around them.

I believe that I have been trained in the best hypnosis method available today. I am far more confident than I have ever been about my skills sets and my confidence.

What do you want to say to your ideal client reading your words now?

There is hope even in the darkest of times. Because you are listening to this message now, you are eager to reclaim your life in ways you never thought possible. Your dreams are within reach! Allow yourself to experience a new chapter and a new era in your life because you now shift easily and fluidly into self-conviction and previously untapped skills. You become reorganized and integrated into a new version of yourself that you've always imagined and is now really here.
What do you want to do that was previously out of reach?


Who do you want to become and how do you want to act?


With hypnosis, you will experience a reboot and suddenly, you have more energy, more focus, more motivation and ease of sustainability. You are recharged and your mind is engaged. You can smile again and each day is filled with a growing belief in yourself. Your world really does seem brighter and now full of possibilities and new realities.

What were your reservations about becoming a hypnotist?

I wanted to ensure that I could distinguish myself from entertainment hypnotists and provide people with an authentic message about transformation.

What has training with Cascade Hypnosis Center for Training & Services done for your credibility and confidence?

I believe that I have been trained in the best hypnosis method available today. I am far more confident than I have ever been about my skills sets and my confidence.

Tell us about the obstacles (such as personal blocks, physical obstacles, life situations) you overcame while training.

I addressed long-standing issues regarding anxiety and lack of belief in myself that once trained, gave me access to "knowing" that I was in the right place at the right time.

How did we help you overcome them?

I chose to experience hypnosis sessions as a client because it was essential for my continued growth, and I also wanted to know the process from the ground-up in order to present it with authenticity to my clients.

What activities did you engage in to launch your hypnosis business?

I began with an LLC and a website. After training, I launched several awareness strategies, mostly online, which remained in place for 3 months before developing Self-Hypnosis groups and engaging with community organizations to present a consistent and familiar face. I am now moving on to presentations for business and civic organizations.

How did training at Cascade Hypnosis Center for Training & Services prepare you for seeing clients?

The training prepared me in every way for seeing clients. There was nothing left out. Understanding the client process is part of the learning curve.

How has training with us helped you achieve your life goals?

I have been able to open my own business and focus on my own as well as others' self-care. My goal has been met. Now, I want to grow my business so that it easily support me in a sustainable manner.

Can you share an anonymous inspirational client "win" that demonstrates what you do and how you help people?

Client came to see me to stop smoking. She had been a smoker for more than 20 years and was embarrassed because she is a school teacher and felt as though she was a hypocrite; teaching students to be healthy, but not following her own advice. She had to sneak out of the classroom and hide on the school grounds in order to smoke and her thoughts were completely focused on how to arrange her day so that she would not be caught smoking. She also realized that for someone her age (mid 30s), she could barely breathe and sounded like an "old person with a lot of problems".

She decided to try hypnosis and contacted a few local hypnotists, but did not care for "their demeanor". She was willing to drive to Bellingham to see me because she enjoyed the way I responded to her on the phone during the initial consultation. She remarked that "this would be easy and fun".

It feels really good to see results happening in the present moment as I work with people. That is the essence of immediate feedback and gratification, for client and hypnotherapist; it’s a fantastic guidance mechanism.

In one session, she became a non-smoker, and in two sessions, she was feeling very confident. She was preparing for an upcoming summer holiday filled with friends and family who smoked but eased through the holiday joyfully, feeling even more confident about her new self-identity as a non-smoker. She now proudly offers herself as a role model for others.

After the holiday, she wrote a review, which was posted on my website, in which she claims that hypnosis is "genius". Her self-image has improved greatly, and she now feels capable of seeking out relationships; her stress is almost non-existent since she is no longer lurking around the school grounds, and she feels free to enjoy her summer off.

She is now excited about a trip overseas, feeling physically more able to navigate the landscape and go on hikes with her traveling companion - Mom. Previously, she could not keep up with her Mom due to her deteriorating breathing, and she was embarrassed to have her mother be in better shape than she was. Her entire world opened up in a few short weeks.

How does it feel to be helping people in such tremendous ways?

It feels really good to see results happening in the present moment as I work with people. That is the essence of immediate feedback and gratification, for client and hypnotherapist; it’s a fantastic guidance mechanism.
