I enjoy collaborating with clients to shape a unique, personalized strategy for change. I often incorporate a gentle, non-directive style of hypnotherapy to stimulate each client's creativity, untapped resources, and abilities that have been underused. I find that hypnosis in combination with cognitive therapy and mindfulness-based approaches can be especially helpful to reduce suffering from extreme anxiety. I believe that my job is to create a safe, comfortable climate for my clients that is conducive to their developing a new point of view. Change is never easy and I believe it is my responsibility to guide my clients through the process with patience, respect, new options to consider, and nudges when they may be taking a wrong turn. When appropriate, I find that humor and some laughter often accompanies us through the change process. I urge my clients to take steps each week to act on new insights or fresh approaches in order to develop and strengthen new skills. I often find it uplifting and inspiring to witness the ways even small changes in a person's approach to their life can generate a ripple effect and lead to surprising, unanticipated benefits.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Anxiety disorders including social anxiety, performance anxiety, general fearfulness, phobias such as public speaking or flying, and panic disorders. I have also learned to use cognitive therapy enhanced by hypnotherapy for effective treatment of depression.

In addition to adult work, I have treated many adolescent boys and young men with issues related to loss & grief, male adjustment/ identity concerns, anger management, developing emotional intelligence, and problems with impulse control. I also have extensive experience and skills working with families of troubled children and adolescents who are at risk of self-harm or destructive behavior.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Good therapy is a collaborative process that must be based on trust, mutual respect, honest communication, and a willingness to work together through the inevitable difficult aspects of the change process. The "fit" between the client and therapist is a key that one should really consider when selecting a therapist. You should be able to expect a good therapist for you to have optimism that you can make changes, respect for your uniqueness, and interest in you as a unique person. I believe that a skilled therapist will be able to find and help you appreciate your strengths and inner resources that you may have forgotten or underused.

In addition, you should check that the therapist is experienced addressing the concerns and symptoms you have and that they have advanced training & credentials that support their expertise. They should be on top of current knowledge about best practices and what does/doesn't work for specific conditions. The state website for their licensure should confirm their license and that they have a good record of ethical practice.

An intangible that you should look for is the "rapport" you are able to build together when you first meet, and the extent you feel more hopeful when you leave after the first session.

If you are open to using hypnosis to deepen & speed your recovery, the hypnotherapist should be trained in hypnotherapy and a member in good standing with a reputable organization such as American Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
