Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is the bridge between asleep and awake, the in-between space also known as the Healing State. It is a natural state we all experience several times a day. Hypnosis is known as the straight pathway to the subconscious, and here we are able to work together with your own Inner Wisdom to give instructions to the subconscious mind to release the limiting beliefs, behaviors, triggers, blocks and obstacles that no longer serve you and integrate positive instructions for the qualities and beliefs you do want, in order to create permanent change. With Hypnotherapy, we gently and efficiently address the root cause.
Who Benefits From Hypnotherapy?
Anyone who has "stuff", "baggage" or "issues." In short - everyone! We all have opportunities and challenges in our lives. Wouldn't it be wonderful to respond to life with a clear filter instead of the foggy filter of past experience? I can help with this.
How can Hypnosis help me?
There is really no limit to the things Hypnotherapy can help with, but these are a few I see most often:
Relieve Stress and Anxiety
Overcome Adult and Childhood Trauma
Mitigate Pandemic Fatigue and Covid Trauma
Support a Healthy Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum
Cultivate a foundation of Self-worth, Self-love and Self-confidence

and much more!
What does it feel like?
Most people feel very relaxed and comfortable. It is that sort of twilight state between sleep and awake, when the brain waves start to slow down. Your body feels deeply relaxed while your mind is still aware of what is being said.
In fact, we all naturally move in and out of a Hypnotic State several times a day. We regularly find ourselves lost in thought, adrift in music or immersed in work. The difference is that during Hypnotherapy, you are gently guided to this state using visualizations, imagery, and relaxing sounds.
Will I lose control while in hypnosis?
That is a very understandable concern, especially if you've seen a stage hypnotist have someone clucking like a chicken. But I can assure you... it's not like that! All hypnosis is self hypnosis. You can't get stuck in hypnosis. You are always in control and you can stop at any time. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind. If we were interrupted on a call, you would naturally either return to full alertness or you would fall asleep.
Is Hypnotherapy Effective?
Hypnosis is a safe, effective and powerful tool that works very quickly compared to other types of therapy. In recent years, hypnotherapy has become an accepted treatment to address a wide variety of issues and concerns. But, hypnosis is not a magic wand and results won’t happen overnight. The most important part of hypnotherapy for your greatest success is your willingness to be open to it.
Does remote hypnosis really work?
Yes, virtual hypnotherapy works very, very well! In addition to this, it allows you to experience the comfort and ease of being home. An internet connection and a smartphone or laptop are all you need to have a transformative, healing session.
How many sessions will I need?
Everyone and their individual experience are unique. A hypnotherapy program for any particular issue will range in length from a few sessions to working together over several months, depending on your history and what issue you would like to address. I am extremely results oriented and strive to see you through to your goal as quickly as possible.
What are your prices and payment options?
If you prefer to pay session by session - the cost is $125 each.
To make it easier to complete a full program, I also offer packages for multiple sessions at a discounted rate:
8 session package: $760 ($95/session)
Packages must be pre-paid to book sessions, and any unused sessions will be valid for up to a year after purchase.
I accept Venmo, Credit Cards, Cash or Check
Do you accept Insurance?
I am not set up to accept insurance, but I would be happy to provide you with a receipt for your insurance if you are eligible for reimbursement. I also accept HSA and FSA cards (you will need to confirm Hypnotherapy is covered)
