You know you can lose the weight. You want to lose the weight. But you don't. Sound familiar?

Weight gain happens for a very simple reason: what we want in the moment overpowers our broader desire for a healthy body. Diet and exercise programs work for some people, but even then the success is often temporary. Old habits and behaviors tend to return because they were never really addressed to begin with.

Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight requires more than changing behaviors. It requires changing your state of mind. Instead obsessing over a list of dos and don'ts, my clients focus on creating change from within. Those changes include greater mindfulness surrounding food, increased motivation to make healthy choices, and releasing food as a source of emotional comfort. Once the correct mindset is in place, the healthy behaviors that lead to weight loss come naturally.

You can achieve lasting weight loss, and hypnosis can help!

This year, make your New Year's Resolutions a reality.

Most goals fail, including goals for the New Year. The reason? More often than not we're holding ourselves back with old habits and perceptions. These mental blocks were formed on a deeper, subconscious level and need to be rewritten at the same level.

That's why hypnosis works when other methods fail. Whether your goal is to reduce stress, increase wellness or change how you live, success starts and ends in the mind.

Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is a completely natural state that anyone can enter into. My job is to help you reach that calm state of inner focus where feelings and ideas can be altered in positive ways. Think of me as a guide or a coach who helps you to create your own change from within.

If you're ready to move beyond good intentions in 2017, contact me for a free consultation. I'll help you achieve what you know you're capable of!

New Year's Resolutions

"By connecting the actions we take with what appears to be a result, we form associations between behavior and outcome, even if there is no relationship between the two."

Sometimes a problem can be solved in a single appointment, depending on the issue or individual. More often than not, however, clients experience the most success after 3-4 sessions. You should especially plan on multiple sessions if your goal involves creating new habits (i.e. smoking cessation, weight loss). Change is a process. Results come by seeing it through!

No, I'm not telling you to "toughen up." It's just that focusing what we deserve or how we've been wronged diverts energy away from what we have power to change. Your thoughts are either focused on what you can control or can't control. Hypnosis is about turning those thoughts inward to find peace and control from within. 

Hypnosis involves quieting the critical mind so your subconscious can do its powerful work. Getting caught up in what your experience "should" feel like defeats the purpose. Just relax and go with the flow. Hypnosis is like sleep: The only wrong way to do it is by trying too hard. 

Life happens, but as a rule appointments should be set no more than ten days apart.  After each session you will be given simple self-hypnosis exercises to practice throughout the week. These are essential! By practicing every day you are taking ownership in the hypnosis process and reinforcing what was accomplished in your session.


The foundational truth of hypnosis is that our thoughts define our perceptions and behavior. By bringing a determined, "can do" attitude to the process, you are already well on your way to achieving the change you want.  

Positivity is a proactive. If, for example, you are using hypnosis to change a habit, your thinking shouldn't be "I hope this works," but rather "I'm making this happen!"

Choose success and expect to be successful!

Hypnotherapy  isn't magic or mind control. A hypnotist can't make you want something that you don't or have you act against your will. A good hypnotist guides and facilitates, but in the end it's the client who makes hypnosis work for them. 

With that in mind, I've come up with 5 things you should do to make your sessions effective. They are:

  •  Think positively
  •  Be consistant
  • Relax and let go
  • Abandon a victim mentality 
  •  Put in the time. 

Over the mext few days I'll be expanding on each one of these items. Some are self-explanatory, but others will take some explaining. Stay tuned!
