Get to Know Claudia Goodell, MS, CHt
Clients who want to reduce stress or anxiety, improve sleep, enhance performance at work, sports or other activities, create change in habits or practices, manage symptoms or need support during recovery of chronic illness are a solid match for my background and experience.
My education and work experience in psychology, clinical audiology, pharmaceuticals, and community volunteerism in the realm of healthcare blend nicely with my training and national certification in transpersonal hypnotherapy, affording me powerful tools to assist you in creating and transforming your unique path.
In addition to being nationally certified in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy (NATH), I also hold certification as a specialist in Hypnosis for Sports Performance as well as being certified in Smoking Cessation.
My ability to assist those with chronic illnesses, and support others through their recovery process is supported by my decades-long personal experience of chronic illness, including diagnoses of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) (ME/CFS), Fibromyalgia (FM), chronic Lyme, migraine, and Hashimoto's thyroiditis. For nearly a decade I served as a national advocate in these areas and created a Facebook support page for patients, which began as an offshoot of a mountain bike fundraising race event I co-found to benefit a national patient organization. After many treatments and therapies, I eventually found recovery following the ANS Rewire program, which has a focus on the autonomic nervous system and neuroplasticity. Through this holistic process I learned many healing modalities that I share with my clients. Even those who do not have chronic illness can encourage well-being by employing the strategies and lifestyle modifications that lead to the recovery of others.
When I am not working with others, I am usually out in the Ahwatukee foothills or in the Phoenix desert with family, hiking, biking, trail running, playing pickleball, enjoying the company of friends, or creating art. I am inspired by the stories of others, nature, and music, and I find balance through yoga and meditation.
