Johanna grew up in Seattle and left the Pacific Northwest after graduating from Business School at the University of Washington. She spent 15 years working in business consulting; helping companies solve strategic and technical issues in US, Europe, and Australia. Johanna has lived in the sunny South Bay since 2005.

During 2008, Johanna began her exploration into HypnoBirthing when she became pregnant with her first child. She sought to learn all about birthing choices, especially births with none or fewer medical interventions. Johanna's two daughters were both born in what can only be described as amazing HypnoBirths (in 2009 and 2011).

Her interest in helping others learn about their birth options, and teaching about the joy of a peaceful birth, has become a true passion.

Johanna is a Certified HypnoBirthing Educator, HypnoFertility Educator and HypnoFertility Specialist, and HypnoMothering Instructor.

Johanna assists couples on their journey towards parenthood by delivering HypnoFertility, HypnoBirthing, and HypnoMothering. Group and private sessions are delivered in the greater Los Angeles area.
