Put the power of active emotional well-being in your own hands with

Trust and connection are everything.

You have the ability to change the story you are telling yourself, rewrite the narrative and put the power of healing in your own hands.  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.  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 Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I knew this was a path I wanted to take. I am one of the first 150 Certified Havening Techniques® Practitioners in the United States of only 700 in the world.  I am also trauma informed and educated.

So, what IS Havening?


Havening is considered part of the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).

It 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 your thoughts, moods and behaviors with rapid response. The intention is to help you enter a Delta Wave State, which is relaxing and comfortable.  There, your brain releases the "happy chemicals", oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine. 

Havening differs from other approaches because it is designed to make permanently changes the landscape of the brain and removes emotional memories, upsetting life events and the negative effects. So, what once caused discomfort, upset or even trauma, can be viewed differently. This creates the opportunity for clarity, confidence and  calm. Sometimes in just one session.  It's the ultimate "brain candy", as I call it, on your journey to be kind to your mind.

By working with a certified Havening Techniques practitioner, like myself, you have the opportunity  to retrain your brain... your haven. It's also created to be a self-help tool through Self-Havening. ew York, New Jersey, Connecticut Bergen County, Englewood

What Clients are Saying


Stressed Woman

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!

Being called a "pioneer in the field" of mental health by one of the co-developing doctors of Havening Techniques is not something I take lightly. And being one of the  first 150 in the United States and 500 in the world to be certified in this neuroscience based approach, I have been given the gift to see how it works on thousands around the world.  I am trauma informed and educated and in 2020, I was named one of  the "500 Global"  by Brainz Magazine; an award given to companies, influential leaders and small business owners for entrepreneurial success, dedication and achievements in helping others.

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,  supporting others on their own healing journey is an honor.  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. 

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 find Healing, Understanding and Gratitude within. To "HUG it Out" and be kind to your mind.
