    • Jami developed the Hypnotherapy certificate program at BTC and has taught in the program since 1998. She graduated from the Charles Tebbetts Institute of Hypnosis in Edmonds WA in 1989. She then became certified as a Hypnotherapy instructor in 1997 and began teaching the Hypnotherapy coursework at BTC that same year. Jami notes that BTC has trained hundreds of hypnotherapists since the program started--which has been a dream come true for her. Jami states that "Hypnosis is one of the most simple, effective tools to help people with habits, symptoms or behaviors. Everyone has their own answers inside them, hypnosis guides them to access the subconscious mind and provide logic from the conscious mind."
