Hypnotherapy, or hypnosis, is a type of therapy in which clients are put in a trance-like state that leaves them more open to suggestion. Hypnotherapy is used to help a client create unconscious change, which may result in new behaviors, feelings or thoughts. Unlike how it is sometimes portrayed in pop culture, hypnosis will not cause you to lose control over your behavior. People under hypnosis typically feel calm and relaxed, and remain aware of what is happening. Hypnotherapy can be helpful in treating conditions including depression, anxiety, stress and insomnia. It can also be beneficial in conquering negative habits, like smoking or over eating.

Hypnotherapy is incredibly useful in enabling a person to relax and quiet their mind and as a result of this accessing deeper areas of consciousness allowing for drastic shifts of mind patterns resulting in greater happiness and depth of being.

So much of what drives us as humans comes from deeply held pain and beliefs that live in the subconscious mind. That's the place where lasting change is possible. I take time to hear my clients needs and expectations, so we can come up with a plan that fits their needs. Hypnosis is the solution that gets you past the habits, beliefs, and blocks that have kept you from change for all these years.

I help you to communicate with your unconscious mind, and to shift the areas where your thought patterns, feelings, and beliefs don't match up with your conscious goals. This process makes profound changes more easily, efficiently, and enjoyably than we typically assume, and gives you greater control over your experience of life.
