See her school where she received her PHD in Clinical Hypnotherapy it state’s Huntington Pacific University is fully accredited by the World Association of Universities and Colleges (WAUC). And a troubling statement of
“... HPU has chosen not to pursue accreditation from regional and/or programmatic agencies associated with the U.S. Department of Education...” http://www.hpu-edu.com/generalinfo.htm
Note-The World Association of Universities and Colleges, WAUC, is an institutional accrediting body not recognized by the United States Department of Education. It is run by Maxine Asher, director of the American World University, an unaccredited school.

Katze, Ph.D., C.Ht., DAPA and THE VERY SAME it seems as Bunny...
