I very recently had the distinct personal and professional good fortune to meet and study with Kestrel Garcia. Kestrel and I studied and practiced hypnotherapy techniques at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America.  I find Kestrel to be one of the most sensitive, caring and talented persons that I have ever met and her dedication to her hypnotherapy practice is second to none.  I am quite certain that she will be an exceptional,  talented hypnotherapist- an attentive and compassionate source of healing for all who come in contact with her.


My personal experience with Kestrel included a particular session where I was able to erase a fear of heights that I had had for over 60 years. When I was a young lad in grade school, I attempted to climb some scaffolding at a church that was being built in my neighborhood. Unfortunately I fell from the scaffolding and was heading for my death when my legs hooked some scaffolding and I survived. From that day I have been afraid of heights. However,  after a particular hypnotherapy technique was utilized in my training with Kestrel, I am no longer frightened by being in circumstances where height is an issue. I will be forever grateful to Kestrel and the Hypnotherapy Academy of America for the freedom from that fear. I am now looking forward to hiking mountain trails and canyons in Colorado free from anxiety about heights.

Should you have any questions concerning this endorsement, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Very truly,

David G. Tyler

   Over the past few weeks I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kestrel Garcia. Her positive yet calm demeanor creates a welcoming space and puts you quickly at ease. During our work together she taught me how to hugely diminish my anxiety and bring a sense of calm contentment to my life that has always been missing. I always leave her office relaxed and deeply content, at peace with myself and the world around me. This is my first experience with hypnotherapy and I’m definitely a convert! I look forward to continuing my work with Kestrel, and I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking to make positive changes in their life.
