Meet Doreen

Doreen Blumenfeld is the creative force behind HeartHill, a counseling practice dedicated to helping people manage stress and transitions.  A Wellness Counselor and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist for more than 25 years, Doreen’s work comes from a position of respect for individual values, lifestyles, needs and goals.


Doreen  uses guided imagery, hypnotherapy, and solution-based counseling tools  to help people increase their well-being and make lasting changes in their life. She has a variety of  experience in the counseling, health care and management fields and  has worked as a counselor for a northern California county wellness program for over 20 years. Doreen  leads professional trainings and workshops on various topics including stress management, compassion fatigue and deep relaxation.   Doreen has recorded and produced two relaxation recordings that have been on the list of the  top 25 best-selling meditation recordings  by the country’s largest internet retailer.


Doreen lived in the San Francisco Bay area as a young adult.  A move to Mendocino County in mid-life gave her an opportunity to reconnect to nature in a healing way.  She lives in a beautiful redwood forest area she named HeartHill which inspires her work. The morning mist and the light shining through the trees supports a sense of peace both internally and externally.
