Neuroscience reveals that whatever gets a lot of your attention increases in power. Which means anxiety, depression and other challenges get a lot of power over you because they demand so much of your attention. The good news is, research in neuroscience also shows that you can trigger your brain's neuroplasticity (ability to change) by applying pressure to your brain's natural state of homeostasis (it's desire to stay the same). And that's what I love about clinical hypnotherapy.
Clinical hypnotherapy helps you make meaningful change by accessing your brain's neuroplasticity. First, it calms your nervous system, allowing you to move into a deep state of relaxation, like being absorbed in a book, movie, or beautiful music. Then it helps you to collaborate with me in ways that create a new emotional experience and reinforce the changes you want make.
My trauma-sensitive approach to clinical hypnotherapy is a research based cognitive-behavioral tool to help you create the change you want. I offer individual clinical hypnotherapy sessions as well as asynchronous guided imagery eDownloads personalized to your needs.
- Panic Disorders
- Fears & Phobias
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Chronic Pain
- Deep Relaxation
If you're struggling with insomnia, confidence, stress, or chronic pain, you can purchase a personalized guided imagery recording designed to ease your specific challenge. NOTE: This is not a replacement for psychotherapy. If you are struggling with debilitating anxiety or depression, if you are suicidal, or if you have a history of trauma, please seek professional help.
Together we will discuss the challenge you face and identify your goals. Then I'll guide you into a relaxed, focused state using personalized guidance to help you access the resources you need to change the way you think, feel and behave, and regain control in your life. The new learning is reinforced through audiorecordings you listen to throughout the week.

How does it work?
Hypnotherapy helps you merge what you “know” intellectually with what you feel emotionally. For example, if you want to travel, but you're afraid of flying; or you want to respond to your child with kindness and model respectful communication, but you continue to respond with explosive anger. Hypnotherapy can help you get on the plane or respond differently to your child.
True clinical hypnotherapy is provided by a trained psychotherapist or psychiatrist. Unlike the dramatic portrayals of hypnosis in on-stage performances and movies, hypnotherapy cannot make you do things you do not want to do. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis, and you are always in control of your experience.
