Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a relaxed and highly imaginative state of narrow focus and increased suggestibility. It is a natural state we experience throughout the day especially when we wake up and just before sleep.
Hypnotherapy is hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. Communication with the subconscious to alleviate a root cause of behavior through positive suggestions.
How does Hypnotherapy work?
First let me start by saying, "you are always in control of yourself."
Every memory and event is stored in the subconscious mind. Stored events are what create all behavior including impactful issues. Hypnotherapy is a most efficient way of incorporating cognitive therapy and hypnosis to recognize root cause of behavior that one desires to change.
I will help you chisel away any issue and discover a new way of being.
In other words, hypnosis is used to facilitate a new, updated, way of life to fit the person you want to be.

Can I be hypnotized?
Everyone experiences a state of hypnosis. A few examples of this natural state are when you are fully absorbed in a movie, reading a book or driving a car. In each of these examples, one can lose track of time and experience different emotions. This is a natural example of narrow focus and suggestible state.
Everyone has different levels of suggestibility. I will test your suggestibility to determine the most effective approach for you.
Will I lose control or say things I don't want to say?
No. You will not reveal any secrets or anything else you do not want to share. You are in control of yourself in what you say and do during your whole experience. Each question is designed for you to get the most out of your session.
How many sessions will it take?
Hypnotherapy is a "do with" process. I am "facilitating" your growth. Hypnosis is like a mental workout. Reinforcement will help even more. I recommend 2-6 sessions to notice how programming is implemented in your daily life. Your commitment and desire determine how many sessions it will take for your goal.
Does Hypnotherapy work with my belief system?
Hypnotherapy can be used with any belief system. It is a form of therapy that is used with a natural human state. I will work with your existing beliefs to reframe, reinforce and strengthen your own belief system.
What is Past Life Regression?
Some cultures believe the soul is eternal and reincarnated time after time. Each life is recorded and stored in the subconscious. Welcome to the power of your past. PLR is a safe and effective way to look for a root cause where one may experience feeling stuck in persistent issues. No matter the time period, PLR is a great tool to reveal information about current situations. An intention is set before each session to highlight the connections between past life and current life.Take a leap of faith and use hypnotherapy as a time travel vehicle back into your personal history.
Is Hypnotherapy covered by insurance?
All insurance policies differ. Please check with your insurance company to see if Hypnotherapy is covered. I am happy to write receipts.
How does the first Hypnotherapy session work?
Currently sessions are done by phone.
The first session is the longest ranging from 90-120 minutes. It consists of four main parts.
1. We'll have an in-depth consultation to address the challenges you are currently experiencing, determine any blocks or root cause (if known), and create an intention for a desired outcome.
2. A detailed description of how hypnotherapy works, the Theory of Mind and how it works with your specific case.
3. Suggestibility Test. This test allows me to know exactly how you best receive information for impactful suggestions to your subconscious mind.
4. The last part is Hypnotherapy itself. This is where change occurs. We communicate with the subconscious your desired perceptions.
