Hypnotherapy and Wellness
CBT-I Insomnia Clinician & Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist
I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Certified CBT-I Insomnia Clinician in practice since 2010. I offer virtual sessions with clients, in person sessions in my Calabasas or West LA offices and Group Sessions virtually or in person. I have also created a wonderful 6-week course to improve sleep which is provided online.
I grew up in New England but also lived in New York City and Chicago before moving to Los Angeles where I have now been almost half of my life! I have always been an artistic, creative, compassionate person. Friends and clients view me as a very warm, genuine, calm and balanced person with a good sense of humor.
I have helped clients with many different types of issues such as IBS, Smoking Cessation, Emotional Eating, Weight Management, TMJ, Sports Performance, Addiction, and Trauma Resolution but I specialize in Anxiety, Fears and Phobias, Insomnia and Confidence Building.
I use Hypnosis, Guided Imagery, Mindfulness Techniques, NLP Techniques, CBT and CBT-I, EFT (Tapping), Idiomatic Response Technique and Brain-Spotting in my session work.
I work privately with clients & also as a consultant, or independent contractor, for local mental health and addiction facilities. I have facilitated many group sessions online and in person and recently begun to work with corporations providing Executive Hypnosis Coaching and other services to employees via corporate HR departments.
My philosophy of care is non-judgmental and client centered, meaning I always keeps each specific client's needs and unique qualities in mind for each session. My goal is to educate and inspire clients and leave clients feeling that they gained something from each session whether it is a new insight, clarity on something, a new tool or just a moment of relaxation.
Clients attending a 1st session with me, should expect to learn about hypnosis, how it works, what to expect & the potential benefits from hypnosis related to their specific issue. Clients will partake in a brief suggestibility assessment which will then lead to progressive relaxation, guided imagery, perhaps some breath-work & an initial induction. Time will be left at the end of the session for any questions or concerns. Clients can expect a relaxing experience with a kind & loving guide.
I was inspired to become a healer by my own experience with hypnosis. I love people and enjoy connecting with clients, learning from them and being able to introduce them to the benefits of the modality as well as the others I have studied. I love that my practice allows me to use so many of my skills and unique qualities, my voice, my imagination and creativity, my personal and professional experiences, life experiences and business acumen.
