A test of questions doesn’t have to be taken to indicate this, that, or the other, may be the root of a behavioral issue. We simply induce a certain level of Trance, wherein you have access to Conscious and Sub-Conscious functions at one and the same time. We can then appropriately ask your heart, mind, spirit, or intelligence, whatever you wish to call it, what sensitizing experience in your life, and your interpretations of it, is still binding you down, holding you back, and keeping your from being all you want to be? The subconscious mind always knows and reveals the answers, breaking the hidden knowledge barriers, amnesias and denials, which we may have employed for years.

Then we work directly with what is, and not with what someone else might think it could be. The “Secret” then to the many Benefits and the Wonderful Successes enjoyed from Trance Hypnotherapy is that Every Sensory Perception, Every Touch, Every Smell, Every Sound and Conversation, Everything we have ever seen and viewed, is all stored in our Sub-Conscious Mind.

“It’s all In There”, and can be Accessed through Trance. This access gives us knowledge of our deepest beliefs. Our Personal Truths are our current Predominant Belief System Thoughts! We have created these thoughts ourselves from our life’s experiences and stimulus’, or accepted statements and judgments from ourselves or others. These “Personal Truths” may contain misinterpretations, misunderstandings, and misinformation. They may in fact not be true at all, as we may have accepted lies about ourselves, such as, “I am not good enough to ever do that…. “!

Our behaviors and habits, good or ill, are being generated from these belief thoughts. Trance slows down these thought patterns and processes, allowing for the discernment of one thought and belief at a time. This reveals these thoughts to the individual themselves, bringing them to conscious awareness, where they can be challenged and changed as appropriate for the individual themselves.

 Again, utilizing trance breaks our barriers of amnesia and denial (critical factor bypassed) to knowing and understanding our personal truths or beliefs. We can know and understand our limiting beliefs, and challenge and change them, thus changing our behaviors and habits. But, first we must know what they are, and understand the real roots of our maladaptive behaviors, in order to challenge and change them, giving power back to our conscience mind, the seat of our power of agency and choice.

Hypnotherapy is personal problem solving where the client is assisted by the hypnotherapist to understand the incongruences of thought (thinking errors) at both a conscious and subconscious levels. Without Trance access we never know what the real predominate behavioral causing beliefs are that are driving our behaviors.

What is Clinical Hypnotherapy and what are the benefits:

There are a lot of misconceptions around hypnotherapy. The main difference between clinical hypnotherapy and regular hypnosis is that people use clinical hypnotherapy to solve problems in their lives while hypnosis is mainly used for entertainment purposes. 

Clinical hypnotherapy is a combination of hypnosis and psychological treatment administered by a trained professional like myself.  I am trained and certified through The American Council of Hypnotist Examiners; one of the world’s leading and most respected organizations of hypnotherapy. 

Hypnosis gives an individual access to “thinking errors” being held in the subconscious mind.  These errors create opposing behavioral forces within the brain. Hypnotherapy assists individuals in ridding themselves of this incongruent, rationalized thinking.  Then it aligns ones thought processes, returning control of thoughts and behaviors to the conscious mind’s direction and choice. 

The practice of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes involves getting the client into a relaxed state of mind where your therapist communicates with the subconscious part of your brain and makes suggestions relevant to specific symptoms. Think of hypnosis as a “connector” linking your subconscious mind to your conscious mind – otherwise referred to as being in a trance like state. By accessing deeply buried memories, experiences and repressed emotions, we can more efficiently identify the root cause of destructive behavior/habits that may otherwise have taken weeks to uncover. For this reason, I have come to rely on clinical hypnotherapy to fast-track results with my clients.

Clinical hypnotherapy helps with a myriad of symptoms and issues such as pain management, addiction, anxiety and depression, weight-loss, PTSD/ trauma, sexual disfunction, allergy clearing, dental and medical issues as well as pornography and sex addiction.

What sets me apart from other therapists?  My unique ability to teach my clients the emotions skills and tools of positive mind management.  My clients don’t just leave feeling healthier, happier and whole; they come away with tools that teach them to improve their mental, emotional, and physical health all at the speed of thought. 

A few of my specialties are how to desensitize negative emotions, memories and addictions; turn down images that cause PTSD, pornography and sex addiction; How to increase or turn up desired emotions, behaviors, images and memories that create lasting happiness, improved relationships and self-esteem.  I get to the root belief system that created the undesired thought or behavior and reprogram the subconscious mind with empowering thoughts and beliefs. 

Clinical hypnotherapy helps with:

  • Acute or chronic pain
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Phobias and fears
  • Addictions and substance abuse
  • Self-esteem and confidence
  • Relationship issues
  • Weight-loss
  • Health issues
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Improved sleep
  • Stress reduction
  • Sexual disfunction
  • Allergy clearing
  • Medical and dental relaxation
  • Undesired behaviors
  • Pornography and sex addiction
  • Improving memory

  • And many more…..

What clients are saying

I was relaxed, felt safe and after the first session I felt HUGE relief
I was skeptical about doing hypnotherapy for trauma related issues I was experiencing. Nothing I have tried worked. Most of the time I felt worse after having done therapy. A friend of mine suggested I work with Kristie. I am so glad I did. Her approach to hypnotherapy was amazing. I was relaxed, felt safe and after the first session I felt HUGE relief. It's been a couple months and we have done 3 sessions. I feel like I have my life back. Working with Kristie was one of the best choices I have made.

She makes it fun and interesting
Ok, first off, Kristie is the bomb. I love her style of doing therapy. She makes it fun and interesting. Shortly after I started working with her I was diagnosed with cancer. She suggested I do hypnotherapy. It wasnt at all what I thought it would be. The stress and anxiety I was feeling almost diminished. I have been able to focus on my healing and deal with having cancer with a much more positive outlook. She has been with me throughout my whole treatment and the hypnotherapy was a big part of helping me through it. I highly recommend it. It's cool stuff.

I was surprised how well the hypnotherapy worked
Hypnotherapy improved my life substantially. Kristie taught me how to control my thoughts with positive mind management skills. I struggled with obsessive negative thinking for years and have been on antidepressants for as long as i can remember. To say I was surprised how well the hypnotherapy worked would be an understatement. I learned a lot about myself and where most of the thoughts originated from. I can honestly say I am much more in control of my thoughts. I have been able to cut my meds in half. My goal is to be completely off of all my meds oneday. I now have hope. I will continue my sessions with Kristie.
