About Harley

As a pioneering voice in hypnotherapy, I've dedicated over 25 years to helping others overcome emotional, behavioral, and physical challenges. My journey began as a Mental Health Specialist in a psychiatric hospital, where I led a team of psychiatric technicians and provided direct care to patients in crisis.

I graduated with a Diploma in Hypnotherapy from HMI College of Hypnotherapy in Southern California. I also earned a Certificate in Wellness Counseling from Cornell University and a Specialization in Integrative Health and Medicine from the University of Minnesota.

Today, I'm an award-winning author and nationally recognized hypnotherapist whose innovative approach has reached clients nationwide — from the glitz of Beverly Hills to the bustle of New York City.

My debut book, "The Magic In Metaphor: Empowering Children Through Healing Stories," has achieved widespread praise. It quickly became an Amazon #1 New Release and #1 Best Seller in multiple categories and has been honored with numerous literary awards.

Whether you prefer in-person sessions at my Leawood, Kansas office or the convenience of video sessions from anywhere in the country, I'm here to help you make lasting changes.
