Understanding Change: Homeostasis and Neuroplasticity

Two key concepts essential for understanding why this work creates powerful results.


Homeostasis is our innate unconscious drive to “stay the same." All organisms resist change at a subconscious level to preserve the status quo. Even if we consciously desire a change in our feelings, reactions or habits, our subconscious defense mechanisms will always default to the behavior that maintains safe, normal and familiar - even if that is NOT functional. This is why talking, planning, discussion and rational understanding of behavior are not enough to create change.


Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to change throughout an individual’s life - it's a survival mechanism. Yet, our ability to change beliefs, emotional responses and behavioral habits is dependent on the flexibility of our mind. We need the closed eye state of Hypnosis to access the subconscious space where the default homeostatic programs are stored to redefine and rewire the old problem programs and filters to create the new desired perceptions and behaviors.

Your Participation

The context for this work is always your belief system, your goals and your desire to discover your truth and create change. Your deep inner mind knows best, so trust yourself. You can’t do this wrong. Your patience and persistence will bring you to the resolution you seek. Still, let’s clarify. What this is...is a process. What this is not...an opportunity to blame anyone -- yourself or others.

Just agree to moving forward and be your own agent of change to bring shape to the dynamic reality you want to enjoy now. We are truly partners in this process but I am more like a tour guide on your journey to return you to a balanced state where you have perspective and insight. A state where you are reminded that you are perfect, whole and complete and you can handle anything.

Hypnosis is a natural state of the mind that you’ve probably accessed hundreds of times in your life - while driving down a boring stretch of road, watching an exciting movie, listening to your favorite song, and even day dreaming. You just never knew that’s what it was.

While in this state, you are hyper aware and able to engage your deep inner mind where your emotions, imagination and creativity reside. We get you into this state through relaxation and a series of suggestions and then while we are there, we transform the negative emotions and limiting beliefs holding you back. Because getting into and working within the state depends on the client’s willingness to accept suggestions, going into Hypnosis and staying in Hypnosis is a choice -- it’s really SELF hypnosis.

Consider this list of notable figures who found success with Hypnosis:

*Tiger Woods began seeing a hypnotist at the age of 13, to help him to block out distractions and focus on the golf course.

*Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud developed modern psychiatry as a result of learning about and practicing hypnosis.

*Albert Einstein was known to have hypnosis sessions every afternoon. His theory of relativity came to him during one of these sessions.

*Sir Winston Churchill used post-hypnotic suggestions in order to stay awake and carry out his duties as Prime Minister during WWII.

*Sylvester Stallone worked with a Hypnotherapist while filming Rocky in 1975.

*Jackie Kennedy Onassis used hypnotherapy to let go of tragic events in her life.

*Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton used Hypno-Birthing for the birth of Prince George.

I received my Hypnosis training from the premiere Hypnotherapy Institute in the country - The Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy (formerly Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy). I was also Chief Education Officer and Lead Instructor for the Institute for many years.

I am also a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, the Association for Certified Hypnotist Examiners, and the International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists, who currently uphold the highest ethical, performance and training standards for practitioners of this powerful work.

Personal & Executive Coaching

The International Coach Federation defines coaching as the following: "Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful, and whole.

Standing on this foundation, the coach’s responsibility is to:

*Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve.

*Encourage client self-discovery

*Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies

*Hold the client responsible and accountable

*Celebrate success together

The Coaching process helps clients dramatically improve their outlook on work and life, while improving their leadership skills and unlocking their potential.

I received my coach training from the following organizations:

*Dave Meyers, Coach Training Alliance, Boulder, CO, 2003

*Tony Robbins & Chloe Madanes, Robbins-Madanes Coaching, Palm Beach, FL 2015

*BJ Fogg, Tiny Habits, Stanford Behavior Lab, Stanford, CA, 2017

*Arianna Huffington, Thrive Coaching, New York, NY, 2020

I am a current member of the International Coach Federation.

Parts Work

Parts Work is based on the idea that our subconscious mind finds it efficient to compartmentalize as you navigate different contexts of your life. And just like you may have a parent part, or a son or daughter part, friend or employee part, depending on the context you find yourself in, the relevant "part" that can best handle that context will come forward and perform behaviors designed to keep you safe and comfortable. For example . . .a part that handles stress with a cigarette and another part that that knows it can choose a break and some deep breathing. All parts are valid and performing important functions. More important, they are performing their jobs expertly and with life or death intentions. And that can sometimes create internal conflict.

In the hypnotic state, we dialog with the conflicting parts, validate them, transform their behavior and ultimately get all parts to work together for your highest. The process feels more like facilitated negotiation between perspectives – like wrestling with the angel and devil on your shoulder and clients generally walk away with an incredible feeling of empowerment. More important, they walk away with peace and resolution on the issue.

I am trained in the tradition of industry leader in this work, Roy Hunter who was a protégé of the technique's founder, Charles Tebbetts. This technique was also an extensive component of my education at The Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy and what I taught students at the Institute for many years.


Every experience is stored somewhere in the mind and has the potential to shape in part or whole our perceptions and responses to our world. Memories of past events and exchanges are stored in your mind similar to how data is stored on your computer’s hard drive – every data bit cataloged several layers deep in subdirectories directories and on standby for immediate recall in the appropriate (or sometimes inappropriate) situation.

The problem is, we often do not recall storing the data bits in the first place, much less the programs they run on our hard drive. Rather, we just suffer the effects of the program running. Regression is like exploring the directories to isolate the initial sensitizing events or relationships and dissolve the negative emotions and limiting beliefs connected to them. Most of the time, this exploration takes us back to childhood events. Sometimes it takes us back to birth, and even (if you are open to the idea) back to a previous life.

Whether real or metaphor, this exploration during hypnosis allows a client the freedom to see events again, reframe the beliefs and negative emotions associated with it and associate more positive and empowering emotions moving forward. The happy result is a transformed physical and emotional sensation associated with "yesterday" and transformed behavior "today."

My Regression expertise follows in the tradition and techniques of Gil Boyne, Matthew Brownstein, Dr. Brian Weiss, and Dr. Michael Newton.

Specific extensive training in childhood, natal and past life regression was received at The Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy (formerly Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy). This technique was also an extensive component of my education at The Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy and what I taught students at the Institute for many years.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or Tapping)

EFT is also commonly known as Tapping or Meridian Tapping Technique (MTT).

Tapping is a basic form of acupressure that literally taps into specific meridians on the head and chest, stimulating the flow of energy along body’s neural network while you think about your specific problem and express positive reframes. The combination of tapping while expressing negative emotions followed by positive reframes works to clear the emotional blocks that the issue has stored in your body.

Essentially, the technique communicates to your body that the situation you are dealing with right now, is not an emergency. Then it instructs your body to turn off the alarm sensors and calm down. When you are calm, you have perspective. When you have perspective, you have insight, and you can tap into your deep inner resources to handle any situation.

Used for everything from overwhelm to sports performance, fear of flying to impulse control, removing blocks to financial success and help with cravings. Tapping allows us to peel away the multiple layers of an issue and clear them one at time. Also, when used in the hypnotic state during regression, we can clear the negative associations formed by the younger or past life self, change the foundations of the reactions at the source.

You will pick up Tapping quickly and apply it to many feelings and beliefs with success and ease.

I am a Level 2 EFT Practitioner having studied under Founding Master, Sophia Cayer with the Personal Peace Foundation.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

From conception, we have been in a perpetual state of making sense of our world. Bucketing information for protection, for pleasure, for easy access and quick response, for life or death. We have been creating patterns for EVERYTHING from eating, sleeping, learning and loving, to working, playing and exercising. Some of the patterns we have created are more complex than others, but they all have one thing in common – they start with a thought that triggers some kind of physiological response in our bodies.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) comprises a set of techniques that allows us to observe how we take information in, process it for meaning and execute a pattern related to it. NLP allows us to be observers of these patterns. Being an observer is the first step in being able to break free from the disruptive, maladaptive patterns.

NLP is not a single tool, rather a set of techniques successfully employed during regular discussion and multiple strategies may be used concurrently to evoke positive changes in a client’s thoughts, behaviors and associations. NLP targets changes in the structure of a problem, processes of thinking and behaving and also the perspective of past memories and how the patterns from those past events are playing out in the current issue.

The goal is to change how the brain views the situation, so the client can experience different and improved physiological and psychological associations and achieve the desired outcome.

I am a Licensed Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming having received my core training from the co-creator, Richard Bandler and Master Trainers John and Kathleen Lavalle with the Society of NLP - NLP Seminars Group International. I also received training from Matthew Brownstein at the Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy (formerly Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy.)


Mindfulness is paying attention on purpose in the present moment, without judgment. It’s about using your breath to return to the present moment; to breathe and all your body to relax and your mind to take the position of an objective observer; to create a space where insight and higher awareness enable choice and control in all circumstances. Research confirms that the simple practice of mindfulness is successful in resolving illness, chronic pain, and anxiety, not to mention the management of everyday stressors. healthcare, education, business, and community settings to create positive outcomes.

This method, developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center teaches individuals to how to cultivate mental clarity, well-being, and insight through practical mind-body hypnosis tools, including: guided breathing meditations, gentle mindful movement, mindful listening exercises Dani has trained with Mindful Schools with a particular emphasis on working with children, with additional expertise afforded from her personal study of Buddhist Teachings and Jon Kabat Zinn curriculum.
