What We Help With

Anxiety and Fears  
When I mention that I work in a dental school, I get a range of reactions.  People often tell me that they are afraid of dentist, sometimes to the point of not going to the dentist at all. Fear of the dentist is just one of a multitude of different fears (flying, clowns, heights, spiders, being in a closed-in space (claustrophobia), among others.  These fears change how they live their lives, but they can be gone very quickly (often in one or two appointments).
Motion Sickness
Many people suffer from some form of motion sickness, usually riding in some type of vehicle, but others can suffer from being where something like the ocean is moving around them. Like fears, motion sickness (that is not organically caused by a middle ear problem) can be gone very quickly. 
Pain Management 
Pain that pops up quickly is usually there for a reason. It is telling you that something is wrong and needs attention.  However, when the pain continues for a long time after the original problem is solved, it has no medical reason to continue and becomes chronic pain. Hypnosis is known to be useful in helping to manage pain without the use of medicines.  I enjoy helping people reduce or eliminate pain that has no medical reason to be there.
Autoimmune conditions 
There are a large number of diseases and conditions that are classified as having some type of mental/emotional component.  Examples are fibromyalgia, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, and inflammatory bowel syndrome.  Hypnosis has been found to be helpful in reducing or eliminating symptoms as well as associated pain.
Enhanced healing
Our minds are very powerful, and it has been shown that positive suggestions to patients about healing after upcoming surgery result in patients having a quicker recovery.  I have had some success in helping patients with both soft tissue and hard tissue (bones) injuries heal more quickly. This is a new area and the rate of success is currently not known.  I am interested in seeing clients with these types of injuries in order to increase our knowledge and am willing to greatly reduce the fee for those interested.
