The hypnotist. A nurse by profession, so a caring person by nature and very passionate about helping people attain their potential. In addition to helping with food issues, he helps with fears (flying), IBS, public speaking, and sports performance. He prefers an individualized plan versus the stadium type operation that Julie Kibe uses. He's been in business for about 15 years.
