"When I work with a client I let intuition guide me. I am awed and humbled by what unfolds. I feel like a privileged observer of a process that uses me according to its own wisdom! I feel an inner hint that directs a path of loving inquiry. Often an insight about a client's physical or emotional state pops into my awareness from the stillness in which I hold my mind in order to deeply listen. By trusting these insights and following their direction, I seem to become a catalyst for the client's process of discovery and transformation. This is a great joy for me!"

DECISIONS & LIFE CHANGES

When you need to make important decisions, or process changes in your life, relying solely on the conscious mind is similar to rowing a boat with one oar. You may find yourself going around in circles. Hypnotherapy and Body-Centered Transformation are powerful tools that access the subconscious mind so you can hear the voices of your body, feelings, and memories, and do deep emotional clearing. Whether you are focusing on relationship patterns and decisions, a career choice, or a crisis, you will be able to go directly to the source to find and remove obstacles to decision-making and change.

HEALTH & HEALING

Because the body and mind are interwoven, the most successful approach to your physical health will take into account your mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. This approach might include hypnotherapy to access information about anything that is blocking your natural healing process and to reactivate that process. Since stress triggers or contributes to most chronic disease, training in relaxation and breathing techniques, and other stress management strategies will help you prevent illness and accelerate healing. We can design a holistic approach to meet your individual needs.

PREPARATION FOR SURGERY

Studies have shown that hypnotherapy can dramatically improve the surgical experience and speed post-operative recovery and healing. If you are scheduled to have surgery, we will use hypnotherapy and creative visualization to help you process feelings about your illness or surgery, to create a sense of being safe and protected during surgery, and to jump start your healing. You will use an audio tape to allow you to relax and feel safe before, during and after your surgery. You will learn how to use creative visualization and relaxation techniques to accelerate your healing following surgery

SPIRITUAL WHOLENESS

A deep spiritual discontent is at the root of many physical and emotional symptoms. We need both to feel our life tells a story that has meaning, and to discover the place of inner peace that exists even deeper than our story. Your sense of purpose arises from within you, and it is the key to your capacity for joy, enthusiasm and celebration of life. Through dialogue, hypnotherapy, and practices that still and focus the mind you can find the path of your spiritual whole-ness and have a profound experience of inner peace. Spiritual counseling also addresses the difficulties and questions that tend to arise on any spiritual path.

A Letter From a Former Client
(Her work with me consisted of 6 sessions over several months)

Dear Alexa,

I want to express my profound appreciation for your guidance in making my life richer, fuller and happier. I wouldn't have even begun the work with you these past several months if I hadn't been in a lot of pain. My anguish became an opening for working with you to change old stories and belief systems that have held me back all of my life.

Over the past 30 or so years of my adult life I have done a lot of work on myself - through counseling, reading, meditation, hypnosis. Despite it all, I still had the old heavy feeling of something being wrong with me, a sense of shame and of not being worthy. Since you began teaching me how to listen to my feelings through my body and to take care of myself, I feel freer and safer. I always thought that my brain could resolve everything. Wrong! For so many years I have pushed down my true feeling in order to please others. You have shown me that this never works, that energy always comes out somewhere, often with physical repercussions.

My daily encounters with people have become more joyful. I find myself listening better and speaking the truth. It is a huge relief not to have to hide who I am with the thought always in the background that at some point I am going to be found out. Now, I am continually having chills - the kind I get when something really moves me. I appreciate the little things more. I have slowed down my Type A behavior and paradoxically, have become more productive.

I have always felt that if I told the truth about how I really feel about things, no one would like me. Since beginning this transformational, truth-telling work with you, I have gained new respect from family, friends and fellow workers.

I just wanted you to know how deeply I admire and thank you for the work you are doing to make people's lives better.
