• Our Services

  • Hypnotherapy is not Psychotherapy, Psychological counseling, or any type of therapy nor is it a substitute for these services.
    Psychotherapy is a health care service.  Its primary focus is to identify, diagnose, and treat nervous and mental disorders that fit the criteria of the DSMV. The goals include alleviating symptoms, understanding the underlying personality dynamics, which create symptoms, changing the dysfunctional behaviors, which are the result of these disorders, and helping patients to cope with their psychological problems. Psychotherapy is usually reimbursable through health insurance policies (while hypnotherapy is not for most insurances).
    Psychotherapy patients are often emotionally vulnerable. This vulnerability is increased by the expectation that they will discuss very intimate personal information and will expose feelings about themselves that they are understandably sensitive about. The past life experiences of psychotherapy patients have often made trust difficult to achieve. These factors for fiduciary responsibility are to protect the safety of their clients. The hypnotherapy relationship is designed to avoid this power differential, allowing the client to dictate where they want to empower themselves and allow their conscious mind to communicate with the subconscious so that they can work together to accomplish what the client wants.
    In the event that you feel the need for professional counseling or therapy, it is your responsibility to seek a licensed professional who can provide these services. If I believe that such services will be valuable to you, I will recommend them. If you are in the state of California, we can create a new contract and continue with Psychotherapy services.
