"Proven to be a first rate professional. She is highly skilled, motivated and possesses one of the most pleasant personalities that I have ever met in the business. Kim is very business oriented, is not afraid to take an initiative and her integrity is beyond any reproach."

"A number of individuals in the helping profession were familiar with Ms. Baccigaluppi's work and pointed me in her direction. After six months of working with Kim Baccigaluppi, I came to the realization that my armor and deeply repressed experiences stood in the way of my continued personal growth. No modality in the past could break through a kind of amnesia regarding my early development. The combination of Ms. Baccigaluppi's highly successful skills and her personal concern, caring, intuition and creativity has resulted in extremely productive sessions."
- D. Freeman, MFCC
"As the Clinical supervisor of Marshak Clinic, a residential program for substance abuse treatment, I have had the pleasure of knowing Kim Baccigaluppi for the last two years. During the time that we worked together, I received positive feedback from all the clients that attended her group. In her groups she taught clients to develop problem-solving skills and to manage negative emotions. She was always available to help clients to deal with difficult situations without hesitation. Kim's sensitivity, diligence, energy and sense of humor made working with her a joy. It is for these reasons that I offer a high recommendation for Kim without reservations."

"I sought out hypnotherapy to help alleviate my anxiety disorders I felt were controlling my life: hypochondriasis and white-coat hypertension, (which is a syndrome whereby a patient's feeling of anxiety in a medical environment results in an abnormally high reading when their blood pressure is measured). By fate, I found Kim Baccigaluppi who not only found the root causes of my physical conditions, but provided me with the therapy to be cured. I wholeheartedly recommend and endorse Ms. Baccigaluppi for her professionalism, insightfulness, patience and her tremendous caring and warmth that have resulted in my personal and professional growth. With Kim's help, I feel more confident and reconnected to the person to the person that I was always meant to be."

"I have worked in the field of substance abuse and residential treatment for seven years, and I have witnessed Kim's group work wonders for clients' anxieties. Her groups help educate clients about emotions while at the same time providing healthy relaxation techniques. Kim's healing voice, coupled with her wealth of understanding on addiction and hypnotherapy, provides a nurturing and healing atmosphere for clients to recover. Kim and I have worked together with clients and EVERY experience I have heard from her clients have been positive and insightful. I believe the education and awareness clients received from Kim's groups are beneficial to all."

"This letter is to recommend my friend and colleague, Kim Baccigaluppi for anyone seeking excellent and unique approaches to finding emotional and spiritual peace for themselves, as well as resolving past trauma. I could always see a difference in our clients after Kim had worked with them. Even more impressive was the fact that it had really long lasting results. Many of our clients wanted to continue working with Kim, finding a relief they had not experienced before. Because I also coordinate our alumni association, I was able to witness first-hand the positive effects on those clients with whom Kim worked on an ongoing basis."

"I was given Kim's name during a time when I felt like giving up on two of the things that mattered most to me, my job and my relationship. I was lost, numbed and tired. Kim provided a safe and nurturing environment to work through baggage that I had been carrying for most of my life. She not only gave me tools to continue the work we had started, but helped me to recognized my own truths. With Kim's help, I've been able to 'Wake Up' and words cannot fully express my gratitude for her and her gifts."
- Melaney Knoll
"Before I began hypnotherapy and seeing Kim, I was a lost young adult trying to recover from various eating disorders, dysfunctional from my childhood experiences and withdrawn. From past suicide attempts and addiction to food, I thought I could never have gotten out of the deepest hole I found myself in. I was proven wrong. Through the help of an angel, Kim Baccigaluppi, I overcame obstacles that were seemingly impossible to get through. Hypnotherapy helped me to meet my inner child and I was introduced to an inner world that provided me the healing I needed to overcome some of the most difficult problems I was facing. Without Kim, I would still be lost and in a much deeper hole. I now have a positive attitude and feel my life has never-ending possibilities I never had before. Kim is an exceptional therapist and I hope more people find her that need the help."
