Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of altered consciousness (awareness) in which a person is capable of internalizing thoughts and suggestions for the purpose of manifesting desired emotional, physical, mental, or spiritual change.  Hypnosis automatically occurs anytime an individual becomes deeply relaxed and/or highly focused.  Generally, a hypnotized person has greater awareness of sensations and surroundings.  During the hypnosis session, the client generally hears and remembers most of what the hypnotist speaks.  Therefore, the client can remain in control of his/her actions and feel safe throughout the session.  Hypnosis assists a person to become more inclined to do things he/she wants to do, but virtually never makes a person behave against their own will.

The American Medical Assoc., American Psychological Assoc., American Dental Assoc., National Institute of Health, Harvard University Medical School, and Stanford University Medical School have studied and recognized hypnosis and its positive health benefits when used in a complimentary manner to traditional medicine.    For example, it is used in hospitals and dental offices across the nation for pain management, stress reduction, and to reduce other complications during surgeries and child birthing.

Emotion = Thought + Meaning (Expressed as Feeling)

We are all made up of multiple aspects of ourselves and use various mechanisms possible to survive in our everyday world.  Some of our coping strategies may not make sense at first, such as denial, rebellion, numbing, aggressiveness, passive-aggressiveness, projection, blame, irresponsibility, misplaced anger — anything to endure the pain or conflict (disharmony) within the mind and body.  Research has shown that our rational self is striving for self-preservation and balance amidst conflict between our inner desires and our actual world around us and rely upon that part of us for survival.  Sometimes, we need fear to protect ourselves, and anger to mobilize ourselves and ward off violations.  These emotions are often used against ourselves and dissociates us from our emotions which are linked to our belief systems and may create physical discomfort, illness, fatigue, inability to sleep, worry, sadness, weight gain, addictions, unwanted patterns of behavior and much more.  In other words, your thoughts are on a conscious level and your feelings come from the subconscious mind.  This is where hypnosis, a natural alternative wellness technique, assists many people to reconnect with themselves and to create an awareness of the power of your own abilities to bring resolution and balance, for wellness truly comes from within.

    I have a phobia of needles. I have tried therapies to rid myself of this fear, but to no avail. My husband and I would like to get pregnant soon, but our insurance may not cover the cost. If I could get more information on how this process works and what sort of out of pocket cost we are looking at, I’d love to have a consultation to see if this could potentially benefit my husband and me.

    Hi, I have a few issues, such as allergies, chronic fatigue, unwanted weight gain, and even frustration/minor depression. Can you assist with multiple issues in the same sessions?

    • December 7, 2016 at 5:17 pm

      As with most clients, they too, have multiple problems just like you when they visit me. I will attempt to learn as much information from you during our intake interview the first time you come into my office. From there, I will put together a program that attempts to address as many of your issues as we can in the time allowed for each session. This is why I recommend to every client that 3 to 4 hypnosis sessions will be required to assist a person to release their issues and overcome unwanted patterns of behavior or emotions. Thereby, helping them to improve their overall wellness.

    Good morning, I have an 18 years in desperate need of help. She has been dealing with depression although this is something she refuses to accept. She was given pills to help her and we all noticed the change in her, however after 3 months she decided she did not want to continue because she did not want to be dependent on them.
    This is her senior year and with just a few more months to graduate she is now refusing to go to school, She went from a 3.8 average at the beginning of the year down to 2.5.
    she tends to procrastinate,
    Please let me know if this is something you can help with, I’m so desperate.

    My daughter has been suffering from a mental block with her field event of high jump. She used to be able to jump over 5’3″ consistently. For the last year and a half, every time the bar is raised to 5 feet high, she can’t jump. She runs into the mat or bar. You can see the anxiety all over her face. Her self-esteem is plummeting as coach and teammates are clearly frustrated with her.
