My Approach


During the  hypnosis process, I will safely and skillfully guide you to respond to suggestions for change.  First, we will together uncover the challenges that create distress in your life.  Next, I will guide you into a relaxed state. You have my full professional guarantee that you will be in control of your mind and body throughout the session. Once you are in a relaxed state, I  will then offer suggestions for change that are uniquely meaningful to you and your situation or condition.  Finally, I will guide you to emerge peacefully from your relaxed state.  I will provide you with "homework" in the form of a written affirmation for you to read to reinforce the suggestions I've made.  

My Mission


I am dedicated and passionate about your well-being and helping you attain the goals you want and need. Many of life's circumstances are beyond our control...but our thoughts, feelings, and actions are within our control. Hypnosis is a journey of discovery and change. Perhaps you will discover the ability to manage pain without drugs, or discover the ability to move comfortably through situations that used to cause panic, or to develop the ability to shift your focus onto more of what's right instead of only what's wrong.
