This logo is a composite of several ideas and symbols.

 

First, the interior figure (the "plus") is the letter "ailm," from ancient Celtic alphabet known as Ogham. Like many historic alphabets, each Ogham letter also serves as a concept or object, this one representing the fir tree, a nod to my adopted home of the Pacific Northwest. It also signifies energy, objectivity, good health, strength, clarity and integrity, all good hallmarks for a transformative hypnosis session.

The four arms of the interior ailm also beautifully illustrate the notion of the whole person: body, mind, emotions and spirit (that sine qua non, or je ne sais quoi), each in equal measure. Whole health includes our whole person.

It also isn't exactly the Celtic letter, because it is set at an angle, as if it were starting a cartwheel - playful, flexible, free.

All of this symbolism is embraced by a circle: a universal symbol for wholeness, unity, simplicity, clarity of mind and purpose. I want my practice to help empower people to seek, find and achieve their own answers and goals.

This symbol is one way for me to say what is most important to me: we are whole persons, and healing and peace must embrace our all.
