My Experience

I started reading clinical psychology books at age 15, literally a book a month for 3 years up until I started college. I got my degree in clinical psychology in 1978. Beginning in 2000, I used "medical hypnosis" while working alongside 2 medical doctors, a neurosurgeon and a heart surgeon who often used my hypnosis techniques with their patients which resulted in deeper more restful sleep during surgery, a quicker recovery and a very healthy after surgery outlook.

I've spent years volunteering my time at the Grossman Burn Center in Sherman Oaks before they moved down the road, Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles for cancer patients and the VA center in West Los Angeles for veterans with PTSD and physical debilitating pain. 

Born and raised in Los Angeles county, centering in the San Fernando Valley in the city of Tarzana, some, but not all, of my clients consist of CEOs, movie stars and popular singers, since they mostly live in my surrounding area. I mention this because these people have a much higher level of anxiety, stress, fear and lack of REM sleep, all of which are my specialties.

The following are just some of my specialties: 

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Hypnosis For The Following: 
  • Reduce Stress, Anxiety, Fears 
  • Eliminate PTSD & Past Trauma 
  • Eliminate Opioids & Illegal Drugs 
  • Get Deep REM Sleep at Bedtime 
  • Eliminate Fibromyalgia & Back Pains 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, CBT, is the most effective out of all the therapies in the shortest amount of time. To put it simply, everything that happens to you as well as around you causes you to think about them a certain way. Thinking about them causes you to experience physical feelings (such as fear, anxiety, headaches, stomach aches) which, in turn, causes you to verbally or physically act out accordingly. CBT helps you change maladaptive thinking into more positive and more productive thinking which, in turn, causes you to feel physically and emotionally healthier and therefore react differently as well.
