About Jody Kimmell

Jody KimmellHi, my name is Jody Kimmell.  I am a certified Clinical and Medical Support Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner.


I received my training at the acclaimed Hypnotherapy Academy of America (HHA) in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  There I learned techniques and processes from world-renowned hypnotherapist and founder of the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, Gil Boyne.

Under the tutelage of Tim Simmerman, director of HHA, I returned to complete an internship at the Academy and received additional certifications in past life regression and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).   The HAA provides one of the most comprehensive hypnotherapy training programs in the United States.

“We initially reached out to Jody Kimmell because we were frustrated by specific challenges we were facing as a family. Jody showed uncommon commitment to our health and wellbeing from the very first phone call, and throughout our time working together. He skillfully guided us to a place of renewed sense of hope and joy as a family. Jody’s expert guidance was also indispensable to me personally, when I wanted to work on past distress of my own that was long overdue for resolution. Jody has a gift for connecting with you, whatever your age or wherever you are on your personal path, and then teaching you ways to tap your unique inner resources. I believe that learning this process from Jody has set me up for long-term success in overcoming not only past distress, but also future personal obstacles. Grateful for this transformative experience for my family, as well as myself.” – Georgina Scott

My purpose as a hypnotherapist is to help clients connect to, and use, the resources within themselves to live a more satisfying life by teaching clients tools to use along with the innumerable resources of their subconscious mind. By using the natural, yet altered state of hypnosis, people can achieve extraordinary states of physical and mental relaxation and focus.  That, coupled with an intense emotional desire to create positive change or modify certain behaviors, incredible outcomes occur.  I believe that whatever you conceive, you can achieve!
