Are you stuck in a trap of trying to make other people happy? 

For most of my life, It never occurred to me that my happiness was important.  I spent a lot of energy trying to “make other people happy” (which is impossible) or “make other people like me” or “respect me” (which is a useless waste of time).

How to Make Big Life Decisions, the #1 Tool that Changes Everything 

How to Make Big Life Decisions, the #1 Tool that Changes Everything 

The larger decisions from your past make up the life that you have today. Unfortunately, at a certain point, as adults, the tendency is to stop making decisions and to live most of our lives in the unconscious state of being.  We tend to go through the motion of living out the patterns of our past selves.  So many people are unhappy or feel stuck in their routines. It feels scary even to consider jumping out of that rut.

Life-giving practice of reflection 

If you have had a hypnotherapy session with me, you likely remember that we do three main things.  We look over and at our past and face and process whatever is causing pain.  We also spend some time looking at what we have accomplished and settle into that and invite...

The Anatomy of Hope

The Anatomy of Hope

Let’s all just stop, take a deep breath, and feel it in your bodies.  Feel the exhale,  the release, the lightening sensation of hope.  The most fantastic thing we didn’t realize how much tension we were holding in our bodies until we breathed in hope. I will take this incredible emotion on any day of the week. It feels healthy. It must be healthy.

Why hypnotherapy is the turbo-booster to living an empowered life

Why hypnotherapy is the turbo-booster to living an empowered life

The most considerable risk in life is the discomfort of feeling a painful emotion.  If we can adjust our brains so that we are no longer avoiding the emotions of rejection, anxiety, disappointment, grief, if we can move through life unafraid, imagine how powerfully you can live.  Hypnotherapy gives the mishmash a voice; it soothes old hurts and, with the right coaching, gives your brain permission to fully engaged in life.
