Most of our lives we strive to find our way back to feeling whole. Life is about this journey: the journey of removing the blocks preventing us from having peace, love and success. Whatever your priorities are – family, relationships, spirituality, professional or financial, Liza believes in prevention and natural approaches to health and well being.
Liza’s story is no different than many, but what is different is that she chose to change course. Her journey in the field of hypnotherapy and alternative healing began over a decade ago when she had to undergo yet another surgery for an ovarian cyst. Through the guidance of hypnosis she was able to connect with the core reasons that her body was developing the cysts and heal herself. Liza says: “Being a hypnotherapist, for me, is all about treating the person as a whole, not only the issues they come in for. I’m doing work I believe in, with people who amaze me”.
Liza’s knowledge of the corporate world is due to years of experience in law offices as a paralegal and legal assistant. It was her own powerful healing experience through hypnotherapy and guided imagery that led her to this science. Changing course, she chose this path to help others. In 1997 she founded InnerSite, Inc. better known as HealWithin, a Healing Center of Mind-Body Therapy – and has since been expanding her practice in her community.
Liza is a practical hypnotherapist and tends to take less of a scientific approach. She says: “I don’t know if any of us are put on this earth for a purpose. But if we are, I believe I have found mine”. It’s been over 11 years since she has stopped smoking through self-hypnosis and now she assists her clients in doing so, and much more. She uses self-hypnosis to numb her gums in the dentists’ chair for fillings and root canal work on her wisdom teeth, successfully overcome menopausal hot flashes, and cope with other physical ailments and pains. ‘There are many things that are unknown to us, yet we all possess the power to change and heal”!
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
In the last twenty-five years there has been a growing interest in the connection between the mind and body and its relationship to stress and disease. What Liza helps her clients with is… instead of wanting to go back and feeling what used to be, to accept what is-here and now, then take steps in finding healthier attitude, habits and behaviors that’ll support and benefit them not only in the present, but into the future. Self acceptance and self validation is the base of all healing.
Her practical experience and genuine drive to help others has forged a unique therapeutic practice where clients achieve maximum benefit in minimum time. Her caring presence, energy, experience and enthusiasm for the art of healing make her an inspiring and effective guide.
Liza earned her Clinical Hypnotherapy Certification from the Hypnotism Training Institute of Glendale in 1996. She continued to earn her Certifications in Stress Management Consulting and Massage Therapy, and is a Certified Domestic Abuse Consultant – specializing in women’s issues. She is well known for her innovative seminars and workshops on stress management, the mind-body connection, and women’s issues. The scope of her practice include: Traditional and Ericksonian Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Time-Line Therapy, Guided Imagery, and NLP.
