Core Belief Restructuring is a healing modality that takes it source from looking inward, into a person’s belief system, for the root of issues. Not talk counseling, this work is about locating a specific limiting belief held within a person’s baggage of self-identity. When a person feels cramped and stifled in their ability to move forward, to achieve specific goals, to heal their body or just to expand and grow, they have reached the boundaries of their own belief system.

Beliefs are much like fences, we put them there to protect something. Then as we mature, grow and want more for our lives, we must face the reasons for those fences and move beyond them. You will know when the timing is right, nothing else matters except expanding and getting out from under repeating patterns and repeating relationships.

The challenge is that most of our core beliefs are held non-consciously. We don’t know that they are there, much less what they are. This is where a Core Belief Practitioner can assist. They have been trained in locating something specific within your energy system that guides them to the belief you are already encountering, just perhaps not by name. You, the client, have already done most of the work by doing your own personal growth. By growing, we naturally run into the fences we placed along the way eons ago.

Your conscious mind wants to move forward, your non-conscious mind knows it has a different task until reprogrammed. This is what creates stalemates and eventually depression. Core Belief Restructuring is the reprogramming you are ready for.


Below is the list of Certified Core Belief Restructuring practitioners and a little about what makes them unique as healers.





Julie Hutslar

Founder of the Spiritual Vision Quest program and CBR healing modality


Julie is a renowned artist, author of self-help books, and facilitator of spiritual and creative retreats and workshops. She is also an inspirational speaker and CBR practitioner. She holds a Master's Degree in International Relations and has fused her education with her passion as she brings soulful awareness to relationships and helps others find the lessons in the challenges. She translates spirit symbolism into ordinary understanding and with her mind's eye she sees the Divine within everyone. This unique gift has allowed her to be guided to use this Divine template to help others grow to that destined expression.

Julie works with individuals ready to move through their own limitations, who are consciously on their spiritual journey and who want more from life. She also offers Personal Guidance appointments in addition to, or as a support for, Core Belief Restructuring sessions. As a client moves through the changes induced by CBR and integrates the new higher resonant programming, they often desire support to keep that momentum going. Personal Guidance is then created uniquely for that person and assists them by giving them a task or focus for a month. This greatly aids the whole flowering and ownership of their new esteem. She works with children, those grieving a loss, businesses and couples looking to expand their world from the inside out. She also offers a free monthly e-newsletter to support those on this journey of discovery.

Craig Bivins

We're taught a lot of things when we are young, but get conflicted about what we believe until we have to start making decision ourselves. We’re told one thing, but it’s an unspoken understanding that we ought to follow the money instead of what we love. But there always seems to be something that keeps us from totally immersing our hearts in what we came here to do on this Earth (or so I believed).

Needless to say, I learned things the hard way, changing majors in college, following various career paths, learning mostly what did not nourish my heart until one day, I happened to hear a speaker that changed all that. It did not take a moment’s consideration to know she was speaking my language and was calling to my heart.

Since embracing the CBR work and philosophies I suddenly realized that all those years of searching for my passion was giving me the soil for my own purpose! Ultimately my purpose in life is to help you find yours. And I know it is because it brings me tremendous joy!

Cathy Colburn


A native of Texas, I have spent many years in Michigan and now home is Traverse City. Propelled by many of life’s challenges which served to deepen my journey of personal growth, I now use those experiences to assist others. My specialty is locating beliefs that hold you back, healing the emotional pains around physical illness, and helping you find that gentle inner strength that is needed while navigating through life’s transitions whether it is a divorce, empty nesting, a career change or wanting to manifest a miracle in your life.

In 2012, I founded a non-profit organization that focuses on empowering young women in transition. It began with 18 year olds leaving foster care, but now has grown to include women of all stages of transition.

Ready to assist you in believing in yourself, I can be reached at:



Beth Giacomo

Beth has a special knack for helping people release bonds that have blocked them in ways they don't understand and generally aren't even aware of. She is intuitive and adept at creating a safe and comfortable healing environment for her clients. Beth has found that CBR empowers others to find the strength and spiritual connection that we are all born with.

A graduate of Indiana University, Beth brings her many talents and educational training to give this most important, powerful and healing opportunity to those who are seeking their own path in this lifetime.

"I believe that healing can mean a lot of things to people. Many times healing does not mean being cured , it means coming to terms with what is important in each person's life, allowing that person to uniquely grow and change." CBR allows people to find healing and personal growth in the most amazing way I have ever experienced.

Mary Jones

I bring my own unique signature to my work as a CBR practitioner through my sharp mind, nurturing heart, and teaching acumen. A deep love of spirituality, overwhelming desire to transform, and the practice of yoga also contribute to my skill as a practitioner. Because of my desire to face personal obstacles in a nontraditional way, I have had plenty of practice in identifying unique and deep seated beliefs, bonds, images, and issues that keep us from experiencing our highest, most loving, expression of self.

I see and admire natural beauty, perfection, and radiant light in every person. I know that love is the greatest power all beings possess and so I wish for each person to change their unconscious convictions and blossom, experiencing their unique expression of brilliant radiant light. I offer a venue where challenges become opportunities.

I have discovered my specialty through helping others find peace before passing, by offering support in times of grief, and by opening and connecting hearts. Through this, I create opportunities for forgiveness. My tenacity in helping others locate blocks and uncover places where they feel stuck and unfulfilled allows them to experience more joy and love.

Jody Pignolet

By far the best thing I have learned on my path of self discovery and spirituality is that inside each and every one of us is pure awesomeness – a veritable treasure chest of light, talents and gifts!

I love supporting clients in connecting with their unique brand of awesomeness by helping them to:

- Increase their understanding and awareness of personal energy management
- Recognize what makes their hearts sing
- Release images, ideas and beliefs that are not in alignment with who they are

All of this allows clients to experience themselves as their true incredible nature. There is no experience more joyful than that.
I am also a certified instructor of Transformational Hatha Yoga: A practice which uses postures, breath, sound and meditation to cleanse and rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit to facilitate a deeper connection with the True Self.

In addition to working with adults, I have a particular fondness and passion for working with teens. I love their energy and raw enthusiasm and feel that this generation, in particular, is full of soulful beings looking for meaning, connection, and authenticity.
