Your Cancer Journey can be Significantly Easier When You Include Hypnotherapy in Your Treatment Plan...
The diagnosis of cancer can send you into a tailspin of stress and fear. Decisions regarding the best course of action and treatments can be daunting. The actual treatment can result in unpleasant side-effects, low energy, insomnia, fatigue and pain.
Hypnosis helps lower anxiety levels and creates the clear thinking useful in making decision.
done by Carl and Stephanie Simonton in the 1970s showed that
those patients who using mental imagery (which is basically
hypnosis without the hypnotic induction) had a better survival
rate than those patients treated with chemotherapy and radiation
only. In addition, the quality of life for those using mental
techniques was better.
I am very grateful for what you have done for my wife. Her serious anxiety over her upcoming double mastectomy is greatly reduced.

The goal of hypnotherapy is to bring freedom from anxiety, stress and pain, eliminate the unpleasant side effects of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery and to maximize the quality of life.
As a specialist in medical hypnotherapy, I have provided complementary care to many cancer patients. All have experienced relief from their anxiety and physical symptoms. There is even some anecdotal evidence that hypnotherapy can cause tumor shrinkage.

When We Work Together
* I will make sure your oncologist and other health care providers know that you have chosen to explore hypnotherapy as a complement to their treatments. I will become part of your team.
* At our first appointment you and I will have a conversation regarding your concerns and discomforts and I will explain how hypnotherapy can benefit you.
* I will introduce you to the comfortable comforting hypnotic state, then hypnotize you to bring you the relief you want. I will record a personalized hypnotic CD so you can recreate the comfortable experience and reinforce the benefits at home.
* At a later appointment I will teach you self-hypnotic techniques so you can use these techniques whenever you feel discomfort or want a greater sense of well being.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can hypnosis harm me in any way?
I am committed to “do no harm.” As long as you are seen by a trained experienced and reputable hypnotherapist you should experience only benefits. Stay away from anyone who uses hypnosis as entertainment or those with little medical hypnotherapy training and experience.
How often do I need to see you?
I have worked with clients for as short a time as one hour. This was to eliminate the stress and anxiety over impending mastectomies. Some people prefer to work with me in person more often rather than reinforce with the recorded CD’s. These clients may come in 6 to 8 times. The average number of sessions is four. I will make recommendations and give you choices, always
respecting your preferences.
Do you take insurance?
I am sorry, I cannot take insurance, but for cancer clients only, I have a sliding fee scale to make hypnotic relief accessible to those who need it most.
What can I expect from my hypnotic experience with you?
You can expect to be treated as a unique individual and with respect. Your specific concerns will be thoughtfully addressed. You can expect to feel relaxed, rejuvenated, encouraged, and to find some relief from your physical and emotional discomfort. Ultimately, you can expect to feel better.
I wanted to let you know how much you helped me through my cancer
journey. I have completed radiation, chemo and stem cell transplant
and triumphantly state I am now in remission. Thanks to you I
experienced all these issues without any pain medication. My doctors
and attending staff were quite impressed. The visualization and
self-hypnosis you taught me was my comfort and strength. That was
all I needed to get me through some tough events. … As I looked
around at the other cancer patients in various stages of treatment,
most were not fairing so well, even with the medications. I felt so
privileged to have been your patient. I wish there were some way
that everyone who was approaching medical procedures could have the
benefit of your therapy. Again, thank you very much.
I have had a needle phobia since I was five years old.
When I began
chemotherapy, it got so bad I would vomit and pass out at the
thought or sight of needles. People who have been providing my
medical care say that what you did with hypnosis was a miracle. I am
so much calmer and at peace in every way. Working with you has
changed my life. There is no way I can thank you enough, I will
always be grateful. Every cancer patient should have the benefit of

"Your hypnosis CD was helpful to me because
it enabled me to feel
more calm and more in control of my emotions prior to surgery.
Furthermore it helped me feel I as an active player in my own health
concerns. And finally, according to the surgeon, the cyst appeared
smaller than previously noted.
Karen Zedek, Kansas City MO
Thank you so much for what you did for my wife. After listening to
the CD you recorded for her she was able to face her double
mastectomy with far less anxiety.
M.G. Pittsburg, PA
Follow-up with wife: After my double mastectomy I had breast
reconstruction. I am cancer free and everything is going well for
me. I am so glad I met you when I did. You
helped me so much. My surgeon said he wished all his patients could
have the benefit
of hypnosis. (Two years later I was told the surgeon was looking for
a local hypnotherapist to use for his patients.)

I have to tell you that after our session was the first time I did
not dread and have anxiety attacks before going to San Francisco for
chemotherapy. You really relieved my suffering.
