You're smart, sensitive, and aware. You feel things deeply. You care. You’ve probably done some work on yourself already.

Maybe you’ve done a lot.

And yet...there’s something in your life that’s just not working.

Some parts of your life are going very well. But there’s this one area...or maybe a couple of areas...where things really aren’t the way you want them to be.

Here are a few examples:

  • A destructive habit or behavior pattern is interfering with your happiness
  • Events or traumatic incidents from the past are still affecting you today
  • Negative thoughts or feelings keep going around and around inside your head
  • Fears are holding you back and sabotaging your success
  • You hold yourself to super high standards and are always trying to be good enough
  • You have a health issue that you want to help yourself heal

Your issue may be different. But whatever is going on for you, it's interfering with your success, your happiness, your well-being…

And you’re so ready to be done with it.

If you want to resolve your issue,
not just manage it or learn to live with it better
but actually resolve it,


you're in the right place.

Hi, I'm Lia.

I help people to change, heal, and transform their lives.

I spent 12 years as a psychotherapist in London, England, where I specialized in helping people with a history of childhood abuse heal the past and emerge into happiness and freedom.

I helped hundreds of clients and did thousands of sessions, but in the end, I wasn't satisfied with just psychotherapy. After returning to the USA with my family, I searched for a better way to help my clients heal and reach their goals.

In hypnotherapy, I found what I was looking for.

Now I work as a clinical, medical support, and transpersonal hypnotherapist in Albuquerque, New Mexico and online. I am also an associate instructor and clinical skills coach at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America, one of the finest hypnotherapy training institutes in the world.

Every day, I see how effective the mind is at either holding us back—or supporting us in the direction we want to go.

I love helping my clients get to the place where change seems natural, as if the powerful currents of their inner mind are gently pulling them forward.




One of my clients, Steve Mattus, told me he wanted to record a video to tell people about his experience of hypnotherapy with me.

Here it is.

Here’s what I believe and know to be true:

  • You have a purpose for being here, and you are important
  • You are worthy of acceptance, respect, and love, no matter what
  • Every symptom you experience has a positive purpose, and a key that unlocks it
  • Change is possible, especially when you engage your deeper mind in the process

If you've been struggling with a painful issue for a while now, it doesn't mean there is no hope, or that you are too broken to heal.

It just means you haven’t yet found the right key.


The biggie for me was being able to release whatever it was that held me prisoner to emotional eating. It was like being chained to food. Now, not being enslaved to food, but merely enjoying food for satiating my hunger and fueling my body, has been amazing. I guess I'd call it a miracle.

To date I've lost 91 pounds, without any struggle at all. Yes, I have to plan, but I'm not fighting myself, I'm not struggling. I've been able to change what I am eating so easily.

The session we did on body image also changed me profoundly. Now I'm not critical of my body, I don't sit there looking at myself in disgust or disdain. I appreciate my body very much and really like it for what it does for me. I think about it differently. That's been quite a gift, to be so accepting of myself.

I feel so much better, emotionally, physically… I feel very changed as a person, in the best possible ways. I have so much more peace in my heart, in my soul. It takes a lot more to get me riled up about anything. It's like I see a bigger picture of life. People talk about, “Don't sweat the small stuff,” and these days I really, really get that. I'm in a much, much, much better place now than ever before.

Through the healing power of trance,
plus custom self‑hypnosis recordings,

I help you experience the positive changes

that align with your goals and your core self.

My approach can work for you if any of these things are true:

  • You're feeling stuck with one or more important issues
  • You have an emotional or health issue other modalities haven't resolved
  • You've done a lot of work on yourself, and you're wondering why you're not further along

And I want you to know that I have a special place in my heart for you if any of these things are also true:

  • You had a rough time in the past, and it's still affecting you now
  • You desire to help others as well as heal yourself
  • Your connection with Spirit is at the center of your life

Currently, all my work is done online.
