Meet Kate Van Riper, CCHt

Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist

Through advanced hypnosis techniques and other modalities, Kate helps her clients overcome limiting beliefs and behaviors in order to perform and feel their best. She is a true experienced professional at facilitating therapeutic experiences in a relaxing transformative manner that allows clients to feel comfortable, enjoy the process, and see results. Each session Kate is able to provide her clients with the tools and techniques they need to make the positive changes that they desire to live a fulfilling and happy life.

Ever since childhood Kate felt called to become a professional healer. However, the realities of supporting and raising a family as a single parent meant she had to take a detour from her professional healing path and so she decided to channel these energies into a suitable career in business. She spent many rewarding years leading Human Resources for San Diego companies in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and other industries before starting her wellness business in 2018.
