Dr. Dahl’s clients enjoy her focus on relaxing the body / mind so that the indwelling wisdom of the spirit can emerge in work, play, love, and worship. Her therapeutic style is an eclectic blend of depth psychology, cognitive behavioral strategies, Gestalt, and multi-cultural spirituality. Her goal is to help you become aware of how your thoughts influence your feelings, stimulating your behaviors, and then how to modify your thoughts to engage productive feelings and behaviors. Be prepared to learn mind power methods for improving the development of your indwelling potential.

When Monica opened a private practice in hypnotherapy in 1985, she began to get feedback from physicians wanting to know how the patients they were referring to her were getting such great results. She began compiling a hypnotherapy training manual in 1989, submitted it for copyright in 1994, the same year it was accepted by the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association for certification training.

In 1995, Monica began the academic journey toward a doctorate. She graduated summa cum laud from Eckerd College with a degree in Human Development, and a minor in Gender Studies. She started graduate counseling training at Liberty University, and after a year she transferred to Salve Regina University for a degree in Human Development.
