Offering a variety of approaches to meet your specific needs.

Clinical Hypnosis

Clinical Hypnosis uses guided relaxation, concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness called a trance state. This approach can foster relief from symptoms in a shorter amount of time as the subconscious mind is doing all the work. Most individuals know what they “should” do on a conscious level but it is the subconscious mind that is the driving force behind change!


Benefits of Clinical Hypnosis

  • Decreases fears and phobias (dental procedures, shots/needles, heights, insects) 
  • Decreases anxiety (test-taking, making eye contact, panic attacks, and public speaking) 
  • Smoking Control 
  • Improves Sleep 
  • Decreases the effects of past traumas 
  • Improves mood and mindset


“We become more open to information, more suggestible, and capable of creating more intense sensations of our minds.”

(American Counseling Association 2018)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a psychosocial intervention that aims to change cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation and the development of personal coping strategies that target current problems.

CBT is based on these principles:

  • Psychological problems are based in part on faulty or unhelpful ways of thinking
  • Psychological problems are based in part, on learned patterns of unhelpful behavior
  • People suffering from psychological problems can learn better ways of coping with them, thereby relieving their symptoms and becoming more effective in their lives

Benefits of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

  • Learn to manage their own thinking and problematic emotions and behaviors
