Biography for Lora Hnat

Lora Hnat

Lora has always felt called to help others. Over the last 20 years, she has studied many mind and body healing modalities such as Music Therapy, Guided Imagery, Angel Intuition, Reiki, and Integrated Energy Therapy (IET). She weaves all of the knowledge and experience she has gained into a uniquely transformative experience for her clients.

In addition to her Hypnotherapy Certification, Lora holds a degree in Music Therapy from California State University, Northridge. She has worked as a music therapist, a music teacher, and an office manager. Throughout this path, she felt as if something was missing that would tie her life and work experiences together to create a career assisting others. She found that something in Hypnotherapy.

Lora works with her clients both systematically and intuitively. Her formal education allows her to work symptomatically and logically to help her clients resolve their issues. She combines these learned skills with her natural intuition to create sessions that are tailored to the needs of each client. She is a guide who supports her clients as they find the answers they are seeking. There is nothing she enjoys more than witnessing a client experience that "a-ha!" moment as they discover solutions and bring their subconscious beliefs into line with their conscious mind to create a life that is congruent with their desires.
