Whole-listic Solution


(Mind + Body + Soul = Whole)

Finding the real U, holistic = realistic


The term hypnosis comes from the Greek word hypnos, which means sleep. Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness, a state of extreme alertness. It is a shift in awareness where the focus is turned inward. The more you turn your awareness inward the better the ability to use your mind to generate the changes in your body.


​​​​​There are 4 different states of brain wave activity:

    Beta - state of alertness, being awake

    Alpha - state of light relaxation, meditation or prayer

    Theta - state of deep relaxation, focus turned inward

    Delta - state of deep sleep, lucid dreaming.


Hypnosis has been used for decades to help people lose weight or stop smoking. According to the Mayo Clinic, "Hypnotherapy can be an effective method for coping with stress and anxiety. In particular, hypnosis can reduce stress and anxiety before a medical procedure, such as a breast biopsy."

Hypnosis for Labor and Childbirth


Ideally, you will have six sessions in preparation for the birth of your baby (or babies!). For first time moms, I recommend starting sessions around 30 weeks. Moms of multiples: start at 25 weeks. Second, third (or beyond!) pregnancies, schedule around 28 weeks.

The first three sessions will be one-on-one. During the second three sessions, the birth partner of your choice can participate. Sessions will focus on teaching you techniques for full body hypno anesthesia, hypno epidural, as well as relaxation, self care, and building your confidence about labor, childbirth, and motherhood. All sessions will be recorded so you can practice at home.

Pre and Post Surgery Hypnotherapy


Hypnotherapy prior to your surgical procedure can help you have the optimal outcome from your surgery. You can use hypnosis to improve your sleep and reduce stress prior to surgery. You will learn hypno anesthesia to help you be completely comfortable before, during, and after your procedure. If you've recently had surgery, hypnosis can assist you with a comfortable and speedy recovery.

Sports Performance


Hypnotherapy can help the professional or amateur athlete rediscover their focus and love of the game. Hypnosis can help you with performance issues, recovery time from injuries, and confidence. Any sport is 90% mental and you can have greater success and enjoyment using hypnosis.  You can get some great information about sports hypnosis here.
