“My professional background includes work with clients who have succeeded in overcoming situations ranging from nail biting to bulimia.  I love what I do.  My goal is to facilitate a person’s discovery of their inner healing resources. 

As far as I am concerned, a therapist is a teacher, guide and coach. 

First, I teach people about the mind and heart and how they really work.  I then guide them to that area within themselves where they can engage in very powerful, positive self-persuasion.  At the same time I am coaching my clients toward a more empowering vision of themselves.”   - C. Devin Hastings
