Connection and trust are everything.

I believe you have the ability to change the story you are telling yourself, rewrite the narrative and put the power of emotional well-being in your own hands. I often work with purpose driven professionals who don’t feel empowered and are confronted with emotional upsets in life. By using Havening Techniques®, a neuroscience based approach using the Havening Touch®, my three pillar process is to retrain, restore and revive you to your resilient self and get you out of your own head!  


Through my own healing journey, I explored a number of options with hopes of restoring my health and emotional well-being.  It wasn't until I was introduced to Havening during an introductory workshop that my spark and resilience returned.  I volunteered for a demo with Havening Techniques founder Dr. Ron Ruden. That day changed my life. Suddenly, I found a modality that had the ability to change both my brain and body's response to emotional upsets and stressful life events.  As a health/wellness journalist who was already certified as a holistic health coach, I knew this was a path I wanted to take. I have a deep understanding about how I can help others find balance and live happier and healthier.  There are less than 150 Certified Havening Techniques® Practitioners in the United States and only 500 in the world.  I'm one of them.

So, what IS Havening?

Havening is considered part of the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). It's a psycho-sensory approach based on neuroscience that can help you connect with the emotional disturbances and feelings of upsets that may be blocking you from living your best life. These can be negative emotional or physical memories that are triggered from time to time. They can impact us on many levels; from how we perform at work and our relationships to taking care of our own health and well-being.  

Havening differs from other approaches because it is designed to make changes in the brain in order to de-stress and remove emotional memories, upsetting life events and the negative effects. So what once caused discomfort can be viewed differently, creating the opportunity for clarity, confidence and a sense of calm. Sometimes in just one session.


Havening Touch® is used as a therapeutic soothing tool. And along with pleasant distractions, an electro-chemical response can be  produced.  Havening is designed to positively alter a client's thoughts, mood and behavior. The intention is to help you enter a "delta wave state" which is relaxing and comfortable.  

By working with a certified Havening Techniques practitioner, like myself, you have the opportunity to be given the tools to revive your mind... your haven.  It's also created to be a self-help tool. You can practice Self-Havening and put the power of emotional well-being in your own hands. 

Depending on your needs and level of comfort, Self-Havening and facilitated Havening are both options, virtually and in person.  Group sessions/workshops are also available.

A painful breakup and a toxic professional situation left me with so much hurt, anger and resentment that I ended up depressed and unable to move forward in my life. Havening sessions with Hilary have made a huge difference. Even from the first one, I felt lighter and calmer than I had in months. I am so grateful to her and this is certainly something I will continue doing. She's the best!

It's hard to imagine that there are less than 150 Certified Havening Techniques® Practitioners in the United States and only 500 in the world.  I'm one of them and that's a gift, honor and privilege I take seriously.

One of the reasons I chose to become a certified Havening Techniques® practitioner is that I believe the true work on becoming the person we want to be is possible. It begins within. By teaching and sharing a modality I use for my own well-being,  I 
consider it a gift to hold space for others on their own healing journey. Because that is often the place where the heart opens and allows the best and most beautiful part of ourselves to thrive.

My extensive media background and work as a college professor, media coach, along with my background in health/wellness/fitness, have all given me priceless abilities to work on upsets that are often overlooked.  I also focus on a number of areas that impact our day to day life.

My goal is not only to guide you, but also provide you with the opportunity to discover that which is already within you... the ability to heal yourself.
