Biography for Harley Sears, CMH

Harley Sears, CMH

My professional journey began 25 years ago as a Mental Health Specialist for a psychiatric hospital. While there, I served as a team leader to psychiatric technicians, led daily group sessions, and provided direct care to patients experiencing emotional, behavioral, and substance abuse problems.

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

My training allows me to combine evidence-based natural therapies including hypnosis, aromatherapy, self-acupressure, and herbal therapy, into a holistic plan of care.

Nationally recognized for my services, I have opened offices around the country, from Beverly Hills to New York City – and have been mentioned in popular media such as FOX, Entertainment Tonight, Reader’s Digest, Fast Company, and Ask Dr. Drew.
