Virginia – Ann Arbor

Amy has been very helpful to me during my sessions with her over the past several months. She coached me thru a dark time in my life. Amy helped me to sort out my options and kept me motivated when I lost faith in myself.  A few of my decisions needed to be tweaked as I went along, but with her guidance, I am now enjoying a better life. I strongly recommend that you turn to her for a situation that you want to change. Just follow what Amy says, don’t give up on yourself and let her guide you through whatever fears your problems bring up as you move forward in a positive direction. 

Fear of Being a Leader | Social Anxiety

Hi Amy, I wanted to give you a follow up to my treatment. I just wanted you to know I have had an excellent result from the hypnotherapy we did. I am actually enjoying teaching classes now and am MUCH better with meetings and speaking with those “above” me. The teaching classes part is so easy for me now, I hardly think about it. I’m not nervous or anxious about it. Thanks so much for all of your help!!  Sarah. – Texas

Skin Picking

I came to you to stop picking my skin at night. I’m still not picking. It was a relaxing and freeing exerience working with you. – Kara – Livonia

Night Eating

My obsession with eating at night has stopped. Whew! You made me feel comfortable and at ease with the process. – Sarah G. – Canton

Brain Trauma

There are so many things that I enjoyed. Amy has a very caring personality and her positivity is contagious. The cd’s she makes of the sessions are very, very helpful, too.

I love the email newsletters and Amy’s flexibility with appointments. I really appreciated the phone calls to talk when I couldn’t come in for an appointment. – Jesse

Self Confidence/Self Esteem

You helped me with my self-confidence, happiness and self-worth. I am doing much better. I feel as if I can manage my emotions better and am happy now with everything I am blessed with. – Renee – Whitmore Lake, MI 


I have been listening to my recordings every night and when I nap.  I have been able to manage myself much better.  I have not felt the need to come back as I have been very busy fixing up my kitchen.  I believe the combination of our sessions in addition to my physical exercise made a big difference.  I will definitely consider returning if things get unmanageable.  Thank you for your help.  – Jerry

Stop Smoking

It was a pleasant surprise to hear from you.  I am doing well and very much a non-smoker these days.  I have had a moment here or there where I have felt a tugging but for the most part I am doing swimmingly well, all things considered, and to date I am completely smoke free.

 I have used the CD a few times to reinforce the work you did and it is quite effective.  It brings me comfort just knowing it is there for me.  You do some amazing work, to be sure, and the water intake is working as well and is remarkable for me.  I cannot thank you enough for the work you did and the success I am having.


I went to Amy in 2008 after I had an emotional breakdown that left me unable to go back to work. I did everything I could think of to speed my recovery including medicine, counseling, massage and other alternative therapies. Amy worked with me using hypnotherapy and other modalities. I went to her several times and the work seemed to be very helpful. Do to her work in combination with other modalities, I was back to work in two weeks and better than ever.

My 17 year old daugher has having severe anxiety attacks. Amy worked with her and helped my daughter greatly. She still uses the techniques that Amy taught her.

My wife is scheduled to work with her soon to help her over come her fear of heights. – L.S. – Canton


Amy,  thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback.  My expectation was to somehow improve my mental state.  Through dialogue you were able to extract what I needed and developed a program for me.  I am extremely satisfied with my experience with you.  You exceeded my expectations and i have been able to “roll with the punches” a lot better!

Periodically i will pop in a dvd and review “the basics” to make sure i stay on track.  Thank you for your kindness and your professionalism.   I truly enjoyed my experience! – C.W. – Farmington,

Fear of Heights

My husband and I navigated the Continental Divide this morning in the red MG. Elevation reached 11K. I sat back; relaxed; and listened to your cd. No fears nor worries! Thanks for getting me through this!  Janice

Fear of Stringed Instruments

Amy, I just wanted to thank you… Before I met you, I had been struggling with an unusual anxiety reaction – to stringed instruments, which impacted my daily life for 37 years. I didn’t think that anyone would be able to help me.

After just one session, on the drive home, I was listening to coffee house and bluegrass music, and I was enjoying the experience! It was as if I was listening to music for the first time. After the third session, I can now see and hear my daughter play the guitar, and she is so happy that I can finally enjoy her playing for me.

Now, I know that I can go to concerts, and music festivals, and even learn to dance! It’s good to finally feel normal – thanks to you! I would recommend your services to anyone who is trying to overcome any problems in their lives. You are a truly a miracle worker! Thanks so much, Amy!”  John. – South Lyon

Weight ReDesign

It’s been 6 months since I last saw you. I’m the guy who was going to lose his lower left leg due to an ulcer. Do you remember?

I am happy to report that I am now off of my insulin. Thank you so much for your dedication to my personal needs and for helping me alter my diet and lifestyle.  I have to admit that I was skeptical in the beginning, but I am overjoyed that I have created a new life for myself and can be there for my wife. My wife changed her eating along with mine and we both feel great. We don’t miss a thing!!

So far I have lost 40 pounds and I have 40 to go. I will email you in another 6 months to let you know how I’m doing. — Jim – Royal Oak

Cancer Survivor

Amy, Thank you for being part of my health team. My doctors say I am healing and getting better unusually fast. I am in remission and I am feeling better than I did when I was a teenager. Dr. Franklin sends his regards. Best wishes, Frank – Chicago, Illinois

Fear of Flying

I couldn’t wait to email you to tell you how much I truly appreciate you assisting me in changing my life!  When I visited you last Tuesday  to discuss my fear of flying and how it was holding me back in my personal and professional life I was so confused and didn’t understand where this fear was coming from and why I was allowing it to take control of ME!

After our session, I was immediately more confident and more at peace within.  I took the CD and transferred it to my IPOD to carry with me and I kept hearing your comforting and reassuring words repeat in my mind every time the least bit of anxiety started to set in.  “You are more confident, you are centered, you are focused, YOU are in control.”  That with my anchor worked like magic!

Amy the flight there and back was WONDERFUL when they said we were landing I could hardly believe we had been in the air long enough to get to our destination!

You have assisted me in opening a world of possibilities that was closed to me before (or at least my mind thought it was!) I can now travel with my husband to new and exciting destinations, travel on business with confidence.  All because you showed me how to add a valuable tool to my tool box. I am eternally grateful!

I would HIGHLY recommend your assistance to anyone seeking freedom and release from their fears so that they can move forward in their lives and live more fully.

Eternally grateful,  Staci

Weight Redesign

I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for your insight and help. Even though I’m sure I wasn’t your least challenging customer, I am truly grateful that I was able to work with you.

So far, I have lost almost 60 pounds. Something that I have never been able to do before. From this, my blood pressure has greatly improved and my asthma appears to be gone. I have my fingers crossed anyway.

I can attest that perseverance and compassion are what got me through this challenge. Thank you for your compassion and perseverance with me and my struggle. I could have never have made the changes without your support.  Sincerely, Sarah – Ohio


Amy really knows the right things to say to encourage people to be successful and reach their goals.  Before I met Amy, I knew a lot about hypnotherapy, but not a whole lot about running a business.  I didn’t even have a website.  Amy helped me put a website together and has given me tons of information about recording equipment and other technical equipment needed to be even more successful.  Amy is encouraging and knows the perfect things to say to bounce my own feelings and words back at me to help me be more successful in my business as a Hypnotherapist.   Amy is a great Coach!!   Deborah Bruening, Hypnotherapist

Past Life Regression/Spiritual Counseling

Amy, You are great to work with. You provided me with the multiple opportunities.

I believe that I have made significant progress in over-coming my procrastination.  It has amazed me that a little change makes a big improvement.  I have tried without success in the past to work around this limitation until today.  Since my last visit, I have moved our office, redecorated my basement, in the process of learning and new CAD program and am starting a new business partnership.  This has offered me significant improvement in my lifestyle as I find myself spending more time with my wife and family, enjoying life, stopping to smell the roses.  —Edward W. – Ann Arbor

Depression/Clearing Clutter

Hey Amy, this is Terri. Just wanted you to know I am starting to tackle things around here and feeling better about things.  Terri – Milan

Chewing Ice/Confidence

I wanted to drop you a line and let you know how I’ve been doing since our first session.  I can proudly say I’ve stopped chewing ice altogether!

I really believe your services could benefit [my daughter] tremendously.  Both she and my husband are astounded at the change in me!  She already has faith in your abilities.

I almost forgot to mention the other changes I’ve noticed in myself.  I feel more confident and stronger, both physically and emotionally.  I’ve been managing these new stresses in my life better than I have in the past….  Sandra – Royal Oak

Fear of Driving/Prosperity

I have been listening to the recordings on my voice recorder every day.  I went out driving 48 hours after the session, which you suggested.  I drove to the post office and REI.  The session helped, because I was very calm….  I am looking into getting a car soon.  As for the abundance flow, I’m starting to open up to a whole new way of living.  I am seeing how I think affects how I live my life, so I’m weeding out the blockages to make way for the creative process to unfold. Julie – San Francisco, California


[Amy] Hale was instrumental in helping me overcome my fear of being closed in. Since my eyesight deteriorated and became blind, I had panic attacks throughout the day feeling like I was boxed in. [Amy] Hale helped me take back control in just three sessions. My wife and I are so thankful to have met her. – Theodore & Claire

Weight ReDesign

I just weighed myself today and I have lost 8 pounds which I am really happy about it. Diana – Birmingham

Weight ReDesign & Pain Management

I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I really didn’t know what I was going to do and was actually considering surgery. I am so thankful that you helped me understand how my subconscious mind was affecting me and helping me to process out the negativity and build more positive feeling. I also want to report that my knee pain is completely gone. I can walk around my block and around the neighborhood again.  Trisha-Adrian, MI

Past Life & Life Between Lives Regression

Thanks Amy.  We haven’t stopped talking about it.  After we left your office we went to Buca, the Italian place, had some lunch and sat and talked for hours before we headed home…. I think you’re great and for anyone who hasn’t done this before (like me) there’s nothing better than meeting someone for the first time and feeling right at home….especially in a situation where so much trust is involved with a perfect stranger.  I hope you have a great day. I have a few more hours to trudge through before SPRING BREAK!  Jenny – Lansing, Michigan 

Pain Management

I came to Amy for help with pain in my shoulder. She was a tremendous help and I am very grateful. I would recommend Amy to anyone in need of help with pain or anything else.  Pat – Ann Arbor

Test Anxiety/Procrastination

I have been seeing improvements in my test scores and I do feel much more relaxed. One of my instructors thinks I should write an article about my therapy with you and have it posted in the Lansing Community College news letter.  I am thinking about doing it because there is several people who have the same problem I have.  -– Michigan State University Student 

Weight ReDesign

As I was planning a large wedding, I wanted to be in the best shape I could be in. Those photos last forever, am I right? When I decided to work with Amy, I realized I was going to have to make a huge commitment to myself. I had always struggled with my weight but from the moment I got engaged, I knew that I wanted to look and feel my best for my wedding, my honeymoon and for the rest of my life as a married woman.

I had never thought in a million years that I would be able to wear a strapless gown.  I worked out 3-4 days a week and was amazed at the difference after just three and a half months – I had gone from a size 18 to a size 10!  Woo hoo!

By my wedding day, I had gone from 186 lbs to 138 and it was time for a completely new wardrobe.  I had learned that working out and eating right is the right combination to achieve your goals.  I changed my eating habits and cut down my portions while following Weight Watchers.  I’ve added biking, power walking and swimming to my fitness regimen.

It is so wonderful to feel good about myself, like myself and I feel empowered to know that I can accomplish anything.  I’ll never forget the feeling of pride that I had when I walked down the aisle and saw hundreds of people watching me, knowing how far I had come. – Ginny Nowak

Test Anxiety & Memory Improvement

Thank you for helping me. I passed the exam. I’m off to get my Master’s now. Ted Zimmer – University of Kentucky Student

Anxiety (in the workplace)

I clearly feel more confident in my approach to work. The self doubts have gone and I feel as though I am driving the car rather than being the passenger — and you were right, you can change some deep rooted beliefs. Jerri – Bloomfield Hills, MI

Spiritual Coaching & Paradigm Transformation Process

I’ve seen Amy a number of times and have found her to have a really good “ear.” She is extremely perceptive and intuitive. Whatever you want to work on, she is there to guide you through the process. She is the non-partial, neutral viewer of your process. She has been able to see patterns that I haven’t been able to see and she has made connections between my various life “stories” that I thought were completely different. When I leave, I know that something has been healed even if I can’t put my finger on it. I just walk out feeling a lot more “whole” than when I walked in. But something always shifts, if you are willing to do the work. Ted – Tecumseh

Fear of Being a Passenger in a Car

Amy, Just a note to thank you for all of your help. That session has made such an improvement in my life. I don’t gasp every time I feel stressed in the car, I just start turning my ring and using the trigger words and I become relaxed. I would like to set up a session for weight loss. Again thank you so much. Linda, Chicago area
