About Harley

My professional journey began 25 years ago as a Mental Health Specialist for a psychiatric hospital. In this role, I led a team of psychiatric technicians, conducted daily group sessions, and provided compassionate care to patients struggling with emotional, behavioral, and substance abuse challenges.

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

Nationally recognized for my services, I have opened offices around the country, from the glitz of Beverly Hills to the bustle of New York City. I have also earned mentions in popular media such as NBC News, CBS News, and FOX.

One of my proudest achievements is authoring The Magic In Metaphor: Empowering Children Through Healing Stories. This book, which embodies my belief in the transformative power of storytelling, climbed to Amazon's #1 New Release in Child Psychology, graced their Top 100 Best Seller list, and has been honored with numerous literary awards.
