Free Consultation

Step one is to contact me to arrange a free, 20 minute phone consultation. We'll briefly discuss your issue and I'll answer any questions you may have.



Hypnotherapy offers a fast, goal-oriented approach to solving even the most intractable personal problem. Many of my clients begin to see lasting change after just a single session.


What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural state of consciousness characterized by narrowed, inward focus and enhanced creative thought.  Most people enter hypnotic trance states all on their own.


Have you ever driven a familiar route with no memory of the journey?  Perhaps you've experienced "flow" states when you're doing something challenging and yet it feels effortless, sometimes called being "in the zone".  Those are all examples of natural hypnotic states.

Notably, hypnosis is a state of mind where deeper learning can take place.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy uses hypnotic learning to help you achieve your desired goals.  Profound change is possible by accessing the power of your unconscious mind, the storehouse of your beliefs, memories, and knowledge.

Hypnotherapy works by communicating more directly with your unconscious mind to get rid of old, unwanted feelings and behaviors and to install the new, desirable patterns of your choosing.


Changing the mind isn't achieved with conscious willpower, but instead through unconscious learning.

Why Use a Hypnotherapist?

Sometimes personal problems can feel insurmountable on your own.  By working together we can resolve issues that may have burdened you for years.


During a session, I'll first help you quiet the conscious, critical mind.  I'll then help you make your desired changes using the metaphorical language of the unconscious mind.


Working as a guide, I help you replace old, unwanted patterns with new ones, allowing you to become the better version of yourself that you envision.


Your first step is to connect with me to set up a free, 20 minute phone consultation to discuss your issue, learn how my hypnosis services can help you, and to answer any questions you may have.
