Using hypnotherapy and generative trance techniques, I focus on on two main goals in my practice: reclaiming a relationship to feeling through direct experience and reintroducing you to your essence or authentic self.
I work with intention, integration and connection in order to help clear away guilt, shame, regret, anxiety, frozen grief and past trauma. I’m interested in causing transformation in the deeper part of the mind in order to create energy for what’s meaningful, allowing for connection and possibility with more ease and excitement. With humor and curiosity, this form of therapy embodies an appreciation and gratitude for the richness of life, as well as the inevitability of all its challenges, dilemmas, ironies and sorrows. What we think of as permanent thoughts, feelings, sensations and behaviors that often appear self-defining are actually temporary, like weather patterns on the ocean, sometimes calm, sometimes stormy, but constantly changing, shifting. There is strength and wisdom to be mined from our challenging experiences. At some point many of us come to a crossroads where we choose to let go of what we thought SHOULD happen and live in what IS happening. In this moment, transformation begins and we can take comfort in the fact that our minds are ALWAYS updating. Through the process of unlearning and looking off the menu, we gain an awareness of the data that we’ve accepted as truth or reality and find ways to change the narrative.
