Covering Northern Colorado and Wyoming

Ken’s priorities in his hypnotherapy practice are: 1) to provide a safe and nurturing environment for individuals to explore how they can empower themselves to create changes in their lives; 2) respecting an individual’s choice in their health care decisions; 3) incorporating traditional methods as well as past life regression to provide insights into current Life situations as a bridge to creating a healthier, happier and more meaningful life.

He studied various energy medicine techniques and taught Reiki for several years.  He also studied the Yang style tai chi with Yang Zhen Do (6th generation Yang family) and Yang Jun (7th generation), then taught tai chi for several years.  He studied in his medical practice.  Most recently, he received hypnotherapy training from the world-renowned Hypnotherapy Academy of America in Albuquerque, NM.

Ken came to Cheyenne in 1991 and joined the Internal Medicine Group (IMG), which is now Digestive Health Associates (DHA).  He was the President of IMG for 2 years and DHA for 5 years.
