Cindy is a second generation Hypnotherapist and has been familiar with hypnosis her entire life. Her father, an MSW and hypnotherapist, first hypnotized her at the age of 3, after a tragic dental incident, and that post-hypnotic suggestion to relax in a dentist’s chair is still in effect today.

Cindy is also a proud member of the Association of Transformational Leaders, a subgroup of Jack Canfield’s Transformational Leadership Council. Her hypnotherapy office is in conjunction with a medical specialty office (in partnership with an M.D.), in Bloomington, Minnesota.
