Biography for Julie Tunador, CHt

Julie Tunador, Certified Hypnotherapist

Julie has always been fascinated by human behavior and the exceptional abilities of the mind. She is a highly intuitive Hypnotherapist, Advanced EFT Practitioner, Reiki Practitioner, and speaker in the Los Angeles area and worldwide.

She helps clients seeking to improve their lives, relationships, health, and careers both individually and in groups from her Tarzana and Brentwood offices, in clients’ homes upon request and via telephone/video conferencing. She uses a combination of hypnosis, the power of the subconscious mind, Therapeutic Imagery and other modalities and tools to successfully partner with her clients in achieving their goals.

Julie discovered hypnosis during her high-risk pregnancy and was able to utilize the techniques she learned to calm her conscious mind and access the subconscious in a way that allowed her to communicate with and relax her body. After enjoying a very calm and peaceful 18-hour labor and birth she realized how powerful hypnosis could be and wondered what else could be done with it. Her path of discovery led Julie to HMI College of Hypnotherapy where she graduated with honors.

As an empath, Julie takes a holistic approach to therapy and truly sees and feels each person as the unique individual that they are. It is her honor to be a companion on her clients’ journeys toward self-improvement. She has the unique ability to perceive a macro view of clients’ issues as they experience them and uses forensic hypnotherapy to discover about the person, their issues and the most effective and efficient path to move forward in achieving their goals.

Julie’s love and passion for working with people to discover their true desires and potential is evident the first time you meet her. Her client’s become empowered to consciously live the life that they choose!
