My experiences involving hypnosis and hypnotherapy have encompassed almost 50 years. During these years, I also completed a 32-year career with the Los Angeles County Probation Department, working mostly in association with counseling and treatment programs. Additionally, I have maintained a hypnotherapy counseling practice, worked as a hypnotherapist in a regional medical center’s pain clinic, taught hypnosis and hypnotherapy subject matter workshops to licensed psychotherapists from San Diego to San Francisco, and taught workshops for the Department of Educational Psychology at California State University Northridge.
That which sets me apart from other hypnotherapists involves my diversified training, my education, extensive diversified experience with hypnosis and hypnotherapy, and the degree of recognition paid to me by dentists, physicians, licensed therapists, and colleagues, as found on the Professional Testimonials page of my website.
The foregoing said, when it comes to providing hypnotherapy services, I am uniquely experienced and qualified in the profession of hypnotherapy.
As a hypnotherapist, with close to 50 years of experience, I work with issues that do not qualify as medical, emotional, or psychological disorders. However, as a hypnotherapist, I have long history of working, by way of referrals, with the patients of dentists, medical doctors, and psychotherapists. Said work most often involves issues beyond the scope of self-improvement counseling.
Through hypnotherapy, I address the little things that the majority of Americans struggle with on a daily basis. It is safe to say that most everyone you know, yourself included, wants to improve in one way or another. Improving your golf game, increasing your confidence and motivation, reducing your stress, improving your sleep quality, stopping smoking, addressing your fear of public speaking, and more are all specialties of a hypnotherapist.
Unlike psychologists and medical doctors, the hypnotherapist is the only professional specifically trained to work in most of these areas.
My goal is to help you achieve your underlying potential, while placing you on a path of personal growth and success. Though we cannot change your past; we can work together to empower you to resolve the current challenges you face in life life. By way of hypnosis and through hypnotherapy, we will work together to modify long-standing behavior patterns and or underlying negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling, meaningful, productive, and rewarding life.
