From the moment I walked in the room, I felt I was in the care of a professional. I came to break a habit, and with Don's guidance, I left feeling confident and capable of moving through my life cigarette free.
One of the best investments I've ever made is hypnotherapy with Don. The techniques that i learned from him to help identify and manage my anger and its triggers has made me feel more in control. Don's sensitivity and thoughtfulness helped me get to a place that I had been struggling to get to for nearly twenty years.
I was severely allergic to cats for 20 years and could not visit friends who own cats. My eyes would be red and painful, I'd sneeze and sometimes my face would swell up just after touching a cat and forgetting to wash my hands afterward. After one session with Don, I was able to go play with the kitties in the pet store, with no bad effects whatsoever! This will enable me to visit family members who have cats. Hypnosis works.

Though this is not a full hypnotherapy session, you will get a sense of me and how I work, what hypnosis and hypnotherapy is, and how it can work for you.

About me

I work with clients worldwide via the internet - Zoom and Skype - and over FaceTime and Duo..

I am certified by and member of IMDHA (the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association). IMDHA requires continuing education credits to maintain certification. I regularly attend and present at the annual IMDHA Hypno-Expo and other conferences.

Hypnotherapy is my third career. I bring to this practice a wealth of wisdom that can come only from wide and varied study and experience. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard College with a B. A. degree in Mathematics and earned my M.A. and Ph. D. in Mathematics at the University of California at Berkeley. I had a successful career as a Mathematics professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill before transitioning to a 28-year career in software development. I bring to hypnotherapy more than three decades of creative problem solving to a new hardware, that of the human consciousness. A life-long learner, I continues to expand my skills and competence through numerous trainings in specific aspects of hypnotherapy.

Some of my post-certification trainings include: Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), PTSD, Insomnia, Pain Control, and Core Transformation, and Wholeness Work.

Most people think only of the coding side of software development. My strength was in creativity and problem-solving, generating solutions beyond the coding issues; to make software engaging and useful. Those are the skills I bring to hypnotherapy. There is always a solution if you are willing to look at a problem from different angles. I will be your compassionate and effective guide in that process.

My Philosophy of Care

I experienced a hypnosis session that enabled me to stop a habit I had been unable to break for over 50 years. After that I started exploring hypnosis, first as a subject and later as a hypnotist and hypnotherapist.

I love this work like nothing I have ever done before. I am looking forward to meeting you and enabling and empowering you to become The You You Want to Be.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

My clients remark on the sense of calm they feel in my presence, my soothing and hypnotic voice, and the peaceful, relaxed atmosphere I create, all leading to an aura of connection and rapport that enables the resolution of their difficult and long-standing issues.

My Inspiration

You will love it! There is nothing like that feeling.

I found Dr, Pelles to be extremely professional and a great help. Not only did the hypnotherapy treatments help stop my overeating, but they also helped me learn things that were buried deep inside. I highly recommend Dr. Pelles for those looking for a qualified hypnotherapist who is for real
I just have to say that working with Don was a great experience. His knowledge of hypnosis assured me I was getting the most out of my sessions with him. In my attempts at good healthy weight loss I have tried everything – but my work with Don and a great eating plan has me on the path to permanent, healthy weight control! I can’t thank him enough for his help.
I just wanted to let you know that I reached my 145-148 target a couple of weeks ago (i.e., about a 22-pound loss) and have been holding steady since. Even better, I got some lab results back today and they were super: triglycerides way down, good cholesterol up, blood sugar back down into the healthy range. Now I just need to stay the course, which I plan to do. So, thanks a lot.
