MEDICAL SUPPORT HYPNOSIS –
Hypnosis has been used to benefit mankind for thousands of years. It is one of the oldest healing modalities known to civilization. The American Medical Association Approved hypnosis for use in medicine in 1958. I work as an adjunct to my clients’ conventional medical treatment as directed by a physician.

ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE AND HEALING –
“In every sport, and in every competition, there is a level of athleticism that is required. Once you have demonstrated that you can physically compete in an arena, the difference between winning and losing lies within the six inches between your ears.” – Matt Millen 4x SuperBowl Champion, from “Mind of the Athlete”
I work with athletes for mental training in their sport – being present, staying focused, and overcoming fears. As a competitive athlete, I have understood and utilized the mental advantage – being in the zone, focused. Although I do not compete anymore, the advantages of knowing my mind and being able to get myself into that state of focus have stayed with me in whatever I do. The benefits are far reaching.
The second, and equally important part of the hypnosis work I do with athletes is in medical support hypnotherapy. The mental advantages athletes gain by our hypnosis work together are only effective if the athlete is on the field, mat, track or court. Since injury is often a byproduct of participating in athletic competition, I work with physicians and clients, utilizing medical support hypnotherapy for these athletes. As a result, whether or not surgery is required, healing can be accelerated while pain is diminished. Athletes can safely get back to the sport they love – faster.
