I practice a client-centered, permissive style of hypnotherapy. 

Within a therapeutic setting, hypnosis is a relaxed state of inner awareness similar to meditation. In this meditative state, our thoughts slow down and the conscious mind relaxes. As our judging thoughts loosen their grip, we have a bit more space to breathe, feel, and be. 

Relaxation acts as a gateway into a more expanded state of being that is fluid, nurturing, and creative. This state feels supportive and safe. With this increased inner comfort, we often see ourselves more clearly as we identify less with the mind and connect more deeply with the wisdom of our body, heart, intuition, creativity, and unconscious. 

I approach our time together as a collaboration and the understanding that my client holds her own answers and wisdom within her.

As a guide, I understand the territory of this meditative state, but my clients are the expert on their own lives.

My clients are aware and in control of what is happening and we are in an easeful dialogue throughout the process. My clients remember their experiences in hypnosis and continue to integrate the experience on many levels beyond our sessions. 

Deep relaxation reveals the body’s natural ability to rejuvenate and heal itself. 

Hypnotherapy allows us to reduce stress and anxiety, increase our awareness, and experience greater connection with ourselves. I use hypnotherapy to support clients around anxiety, addiction, low self-esteem, PTSD, self-compassion, grief, worry, negative thought patterns, and connection to the Essential Self.

My clients often report feeling peaceful, clear, calm, connected, balanced, relieved, relaxed, and lighter. Through hypnotherapy, clients learn how to generate these experiences for themselves even in the midst of changes and challenges.

Similar to meditation, the more you practice, the easier it becomes to go into this relaxed state. 

When you are in a safe space with a competent guide, hypnotherapy is an opportunity for profound understanding, acceptance, growth, and satisfaction.
