You Are Not Alone

Feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, of sadness, despair, and grieving are all a part of life at times. Loss of a loved one, a pet, a relationship, or a job, can be overwhelming. 


Or you might feel like you’ve lost yourself in your relationship. This happens to so many people once you have put so much into a relationship and forgot about yourself somewhere along the way. 


Past trauma or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead to a loss of self. These feelings can shake your foundation and cause you to feel unstable without that someone or situation that has been lost.

What can Hypnosis be used for?

Hypnosis is a therapeutic tool that is used to treat several types of issues or viewpoints that have become obstacles to you living a fuller, richer life. It’s a growing trend for many who are striving to live more authentically, honor themselves, and live their truth.


Hypnosis is a relaxed focus on healing because what you focus on, you create. This inwardly directed process will help you to learn about yourself, your triggers, and what to do to heal limitations and thought processes that are not helping you. 


When you know yourself, you can design your life in ways that suit your uniqueness. Perhaps you are looking for some guidance on your next step to a goal, or you want to realize your purpose in your life.


Hypnosis is a way to access your inner knowing so that you can run your life in a way that suits you.

Hypnosis for Anxiety

Anxiety can get in your way of thriving in life. Perhaps you want to get a good night’s sleep or to realize a better way to handle a situation at work that causes anxiety. 


How do you want to be? Calm, peaceful, joyful?

Hypnosis for Depression

Depression can –


  • be like swimming through mud

  • make each task tremendously difficult 

  • cause you to be exhausted so much of the time. 

  • make it difficult to get out of bed in the morning, to face another day 


Hypnosis therapy serves to help you realize there is another way of living and thriving.

Hypnosis for Grief and Loss

Grief and loss happens to everyone at some time in life. Friends and family can drop away and go on with their lives while you are in the depths of despair and see no end in sight. 


Loss can also be loss of a relationship or health. Loss of a job or career can be devastating and leave you wondering what you are here for. 


Grief is a process and it is work. It could be the hardest work you do in your lifetime. 


You need a safe space to reflect and to be heard. Hypnosis provides the time and attention for yourself and is a way to find the inner strength and solace that you need while grieving.

Hypnosis for Trauma

Hypnosis has helped so many people suffering from trauma or PTSD. 

For many years, severe anxiety-based conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder or phobias were considered treatable only through long, painful exposure therapy, and in some cases, not at all.

Chances are you have tried a number of coping skills, some healthy, some not so healthy. This trial and error path can be discouraging and expensive.


Now, thankfully, you have access to a comfortable, effective treatment that can greatly reduce, and even remove, traumatic or phobic symptoms quickly.

Questions or Concerns About Hypnotherapy

Will I know what is going on?

Absolutely. Chances are, you have experienced the hypnosis state before. Have you ever been driving and when you arrived at your highway exit, you did not remember the drive? 

I noticed my niece in a state of trance while watching a fashion video, hand in mid-air, halfway to her mouth, holding a potato chip, eyes opened wide and glued to the television. This is sort of a hypnotic trance, a different type of awareness. 

What is Hypnosis and How Does It Work?

Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to relax the mind and connect with the true self, or subconscious mind, to realize patterns and thought processes, and to create desired results in your life. 

Sometimes known as trance or altered state of consciousness, it is basically a state of timelessness. Hypnosis is a natural state, like when you are between asleep and awake. 

Examples of this natural state are times such as when you are lost in a movie or doing a favorite hobby such as painting. 

Is Hypnosis like affirmations?

Affirmations are giving information to the subconscious mind while hypnosis is more like a two-way conversation with the subconscious. 

Because hypnotherapy works at a deeper level in the person, the subconscious mind, the process is customized for the individual and results last longer than communication with the mind alone. 

Is hypnosis safe?

Yes. You will not be doing anything that contradicts with your moral or ethical values, and you are in control at all times. 

We create a safe and trusting space for you, and then continue with relaxation and discussion that is directed inwardly. The atmosphere is spa-like, so that you can quiet the mind and connect with your true self. 

This mind-body connection aids in clarifying issues and helps you in creating and moving towards your goals. 

How long will it take?

Understandably, the sooner you see results, the better. A lot of success with therapy depends on how motivated and willing the client is to put in the time and effort into exploring and healing the issue.

Most likely you are here because you have thought a lot about the condition that you want to change and are now determined to get to the cause of it and move forward with your life. With this determination and motivation in mind, we move forward as quickly as you wish. 

Many people start therapy during a life transition or to heal an issue, and then are motivated to dive deeper into their life learning or self-realization. The tools and resources discovered in this self-exploration are life-transforming and will serve you your whole life through. 

You decide when you are at a point that you are satisfied with the progress that you have made.

Rave Reviews

I had the wonderful opportunity to experience the Rewind Technique with Dr. Melissa. I am truly confident of her skill and expertise as a clinician and would highly recommend working with Dr. Melissa for trauma and phobia resolution.


Dr. Melissa is a great hypnotherapist. She's helped me with an old trauma. We did a regression session. Ever since our session, I feel so much more relaxed. I contacted Dr. Melissa because of my anxiety. Which is completely gone now! I live in the Netherlands, so we had an online session. Even though I was on the other side of the earth, Dr. Melissa made me feel like she was in the room with me. I felt safe and cared for. I definitely recommend Dr. Melissa; she's a kind and very professional woman.


I’ve been using the sleep recording every night and love it. It puts me right to sleep! It has been amazing!
