Your time and money are valuable, so you are invited to ask as many questions as you need to feel comfortable.
It is important that this be the right fit for your healing.

Will I cluck like a chicken?

No, stage hypnosis and hypnotherapy are very different.

Stage hypnosis is an excellent display of what is possible when the conscious mind is temporarily suspended.

Whereas, clinical hypnosis is a well-recognized therapy utilized throughout the world. Free will is never undermined while under hypnosis.

Will I lose awareness?

No, hypnotherapy is not sleeping; you remain awake, aware and always in control throughout the session.

Think of it as a car ride. You’re in the driver’s seat, and you decide which way we go. I copilot and keep us focused on the destination.

What does hypnosis do?

Hypnosis gives you a new perspective on your negative emotions and destructive patterns by creating a place in your mind where you can objectively observe yourself without judgment.

When you are aware, you can make positive changes.  

What can I expect in a hypnosis session?

I will guide you into a relaxed hypnotic state utilizing a variety of techniques attuned to your specific needs.  

Once you have achieved a relaxed state, I will begin to ask you a series of questions related to your issues. Based on your answers, I will lead you through your memories, thoughts, and beliefs, and encourage you to develop steps to achieve your goals.

What does being in hypnosis feel like?

Being in hypnosis feels like you are hovering in the twilight between being awake and sleeping, but instead of drifting off, you can move through that space with awareness.

What should I do after my session?

Some people leave energized while others leave tired from an emotional release. Create time and space after your session to integrate your experience. Take a walk, journal, or spend time in nature.

Drink lots of water, avoid alcohol, sugar and processed food, and be mindful of the media you consume. You are more suggestible after a session, and violent or emotional content could be counterproductive.

What if I can’t be hypnotized

Everyone can enter hypnosis because it is a naturally occurring state. Your level of comfort and trust can affect your ability to experience hypnosis. People who meditate have been known to have an easier time dropping in. It is important that you be open to the concept of hypnotherapy. Otherwise, your preconceived notions can interfere with your experience. Think of it like a muscle, the more you do it, the better you get at it.

Is hypnosis similar to meditation?

Yes, the difference is hypnotherapy sessions are designed to achieve specific therapeutic goals, rather than a relaxed mental state.

How can I prepare for my session?

Come with an open mind and a clear intention of what you want to change.

Create a window in your day where nothing urgent will interfere with your session (don’t schedule your appointment during your lunch break).

Get a good night’s sleep, avoid caffeine up to two hours before your session, don’t skip any meals, and wear comfortable clothing.

Do I have to be in LA to work with you?

No, remote video sessions are available.

Before the session starts, you will need a comfortable headset. Don’t forget to plug in your phone or laptop and test that everything is operating correctly. We don’t want any technical delays to cut into your time. Please remove any distractions – place your phone on silent and let your friends and family know that you are not available. If possible, choose a quiet environment with a chair or sofa that can recline. Finally, keep a box of tissues nearby.

What is Psychedelic Integration?

Psychedelic integration provides support for harm reduction and benefit enhancement for your psychedelic experiences.
I do not administer or provide psychedelic substances.

Is Psychedelic Integration for me?

The people I work with generally fall into one or more of a few categories, and these tend to be people who are:

  • New to psychedelics and are looking for a reliable answer about effects, safety precautions, preparation, and integration.
  • In distress after a psychedelic experience: Anxious, irritable, confused, depressed or frightened.
  • Confused about an experience, the meaning of things they saw or heard, what it was trying to teach them, and what to do next.
  • Just looking to deepen their understanding of the lessons of one or more journeys.
  • Stuck at a certain level and/or wanting to go deeper in their entheogenic work.
  • Interested in techniques that may help them address blocks or deal with childhood and past traumas.
