Scope of Practice:

I formally studied hypnotherapy at the Alchemy Institute of Hypnosis in Santa Rosa, CA where I completed a 225 hour course learning the specifics of therapy: emotional clearing, child rescue, past life regression, somatic healing, conference room therapy, and how to treat specific issues such as addiction. Learning hypnotherapy techniques was incredibly exciting for me, because I felt they addressed areas where traditional psychotherapy failed to be effective. Hypnotherapy taps into the wisdom and power of more subtle areas of consciousness usually addressed only in spiritual or religious contexts. For example, it offers techniques of visiting the past imaginatively, bringing along more inner resources than were available in the past, that are surprisingly effective at healing childhood trauma. I sought further training in hypnotherapy at the Institute for Therapeutic Learning where I completed a 150 hour course and received a certification in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy and NLP. Additionally, I have completed a three year program at the Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy in Core Energetics, a modality that focuses on the role of the body in healing. A unique theory of child development originally developed by Wilhelm Reich provides a useful frame for healing past trauma and guides therapeutic intervention over the course of therapy. I see the work I do with Alchemical Hypnotherapy as revolutionary. Is it not revolutionary to give up internalized shame and fear, and live an empowered life overflowing with joy and love? There are few things as important as getting this foundation right, and I am pleased to be doing this work. I am honored to be a fellow explorer with those who are seeking change.

Values and Philosophy:

I believe your ability to heal is innate. In the same way that blood clots and a scab mends a cut, the heart has an innate intelligence. You are made to be whole and happy. Your natural state is one of spontaneous joy, and the work is to remove whatever blocks your connection to it.

Techniques and Methodology:

Hypnosis is just guided meditation. We begin the session by talking about your problems and goals, and then continue the conversation on a deeper level that includes your body and emotions. Alchemical Hypnotherapy uses guided meditation to help you experience a peaceful and abundant source of love within, encouraging you to live more and more from the heart. With loving acceptance, inner blocks are dissolved, purifying the expression of your innate goodness.
