Anxiety, pain, depression, chronic pain, and other challenges demand your attention and drain your energy. Research shows that Clinical hypnotherapy can help retrain your brain by triggering your brain's neuroplasticity. In other words, it helps your brain change it's habitual relationship to these challenges, bringing you more ease and a different perspective. My approach to clinical hypnotherapy is research based and trauma sensitive.

Together we will discuss the challenge you face, identify your goals the resources you need to change the way you think, feel and behave so you can regain control in your life. Clinical hypnotherapy can be used to treat trauma through memory reconsolidation, empowering you to replace old patterns and fear responses with new learning from your own inner wisdom.
*Please note: insomnia, OCD and chronic pain are addressed through a combination of clinical hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapies designed to lower the impact of these challenges on your life.*
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 also help reduce daily chronic pain intensity levels by retraining neural pathways in the brain and body.
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.
