• A crippling depression lead me to hypnotherapy over 20 years ago. After the first session, my life started changing for the better. Even my family noticed the improvements. A few months later I left my career as a family law paralegal and enrolled at the Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy. I welcomed my first hypnotherapy client on May 11, 1992.


  • You will not find any other practitioner who combines high-level hypnotherapy with energy/meridian-based techniques as I do. My healing work is completely unique.


  • I am a recovering perfectionist.


  • My dedication to the Vimala System of Handwriting began when I heard Dr. Vimala Rodgers on a radio program talking about how you can change your life by changing your handwriting. I adopted The Vimala Alphabet in 1994 and have been using it ever since. My daily handwriting practice helps keep me grounded and centered. I am passionate about the importance and value of writing by hand, especially in cursive, for children and adults


  • In my 40s, I had a panic attack at the Galeries Lafayette in Paris. I still remember how awful it felt as I broke out in a cold sweat and the store started to spin around me. Fluent in three languages, I couldn’t get a coherent sentence out in any of them. I don’t just feel compassion for my anxious, phobic clients, I feel core sympathy. I have honed my skills very carefully to create a mind-body-spirit approach that really works.


  • I have taken great care to create a safe, healing environment in my office. Clients notice and respond both consciously and subconsciously to the soothing colors, peaceful ambiance, comfortable furniture and gentle music in the background.


  • Nothing is more fulfilling for me than serving as someone’s "spiritual midwife."


  • It is a privilege to see the light come back into my clients’ eyes as they heal.


  • I've been married to Chris George Yaldezian since 1978 and we're really good together. Son Matthew works at the UCLA Film School and pursues creative projects on the side; daughter Lauren is an account administrator for Moelis & Company. Lauren and her wonderful husband, Will, gave us the indescribable joy of Dahlia Lucine in April, 2015.


  • That’s a red-tailed hawk on my logo. Hawk is the Messenger and symbolizes the value of keeping “a higher perspective” on one’s life. I am honored to carry this Medicine and use it on behalf of my clients.


  • Although I’m a life-long writer, the publication of Someone to Watch Over Me in 2016 finally made me feel like an author.


  • In case you haven’t guessed it by now, I have a passion for solutions. Some of my favorite clients came to me as a “last resort.” I helped them and I’d love to help you.
