Carlene came in to our lives during a
time of tremendous stress. Our then 4 year old son was having
difficulties managing his anger, and as a result he had been not been
successful in school. After working with three different psychotherapists/psychologists
without identifying our son's issues, we reached out to Carlene for help.
We had heard about her special talents in helping young people with their
issues and have been very pleased with our outcome after working with her for
close to a year. She was able to quickly connect with our son,
additionally, she was able to carefully balance his needs with her various
techniques of hypnotherapy, sand tray play, and reading stories. The
patience and compassion that Carlene has exhibited to our son has helped him and our family tremendously. After a few intensive months, our
son continues to see her for regular "tune ups". Our son has
achieved success in his current school and is able to communicate his anger to
us with clarity and confidence as a result of the tools that Carlene has
provided him. She will always hold a special place in our hearts for the peace and comfort she has helped bring to this

"I had tried every smoking cessation method with no success. Hypnotherapy made quitting a reality. Carlene also taught me other tools to control anxiety and fear. I am absolutely happy to be a non-smoker and would recommend hypnotherapy with Carlene."
"After my session with Carlene, I felt like a 100 pound weight had been lifted off of me."
"Carlene, my hypnotherapist, instantly built a safe and relaxing environment to begin working on my test anxiety for the nursing board exam, NCLEX. We practiced techniques that could be used on a daily basis, such as EFT, grounding meditation, and hypnotherapy for both studying for the exam, as well as the exam itself. The most effective tool was the CD made in order to practice for the exam. With Carlene's help, my stress level decreased, my concentration improved, and my confidence increased to successfully pass my exam the first time."
"Carlene was receptive to my needs and helped me uncover and address some blocks to my progress. She's very caring and created a space that felt safe and nurturing."

“Carlene Foldenauer has been the
answer to my quest. Listening carefully to my stories, my hopes and my
concerns, she works with me to address the issues I struggle with. She is
really a good listener. I feel heard. Intelligent and fully present, she grasps
what I’m trying to say and is able to articulate it accurately and quickly. I
don’t feel judged for my human anguish and I do feel my dreams for a better
life are honored and respected.
Carlene is ever ready with a
relevant idea or tool to move my progress along. She seems to have a mastery of
skills ready to use. I trust her as a person and as a therapist. She recommends
books, suggests homework and has even made me a personal hypnotherapy CD to
listen to at home. Most of all she
seems self actualized herself:
bright and fun and offering a life Full of
“I have been teaching the art of intuitive counseling for 18 years.
Every once in awhile, a student appears who reminds me of why I love the
profession so much. Carlene was one such student. Carlene combines a
rare natural gift for intuitive vision with a genuine level of deep
compassion for the people she counsels.
It takes an open heart, as well as an open intuitive channel to be truly healing. Carlene has both.

all 'Intuitive Counselors' are created equal. Some, like Carlene, are
