In November 2005, Mikaila was diagnosed with a rare and incurable Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. This diagnosis took her into the realm of alternative medicine and the healing arts. Mikaila incorporated hypnosis, meditation, nutrition, yoga, and conventional medicine to treat her cancer. She was cancer free within eight months and found a new calling in her life.
Throughout her experience with cancer, Mikaila recognized the fear in her life and put it aside to listen to her inner voice. Though she had just begun a doctorate in forensic psychology, she left the program to become a hypnotherapist. Mikaila works with clients who are living with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and other related issues. The power we all hold within ourselves to make the necessary changes in creating a healthier, happier, more fulfilling lifestyle is real and sometimes we just need outside support to access it.
