Roxanna Erickson-Klein PhD is the seventh of eight children of Milton and Elizabeth Erickson. Taught hypnosis at an early age, trance states have become a lifelong professional interest. She maintains a private counseling practice in Dallas Texas while dedicating herself to teaching hypnosis to professional colleagues. Her balance of teaching with a broad clinical background that includes nursing, and treatment of addictions makes her an asset to programs in which practical applications are emphasized. Among her publications, she is most gratified by working with Ernest and Kathryn Rossi to edit the Collected Works of Milton Erickson and to make original works available to students of today. Her current activities include both local and international teaching, and ongoing written works.
