Sleep

Are you struggling with sleep? Using hypnosis to shift wakeful patterns has several components, all working together to release whatever’s keeping you awake while you create a new way of thinking about, feeling, and experiencing rest.

Anxious Feelings

If you’re holding the weight of anxious feelings, hypnotherapy can help. Teach your mind and body to handle overwhelming emotions in a healthy way, and activate positive skills and resources that will help you think more clearly and focus more easily.

Fertility

Release unconscious blocks to conception and teach your mind and body to create a fertile, hospitable climate for baby. If you’ve faced fertility challenges, it would be my privilege hear your story so far, and talk over how hypnotherapy can bring you closer to your dream of conceiving and birthing a child.

Habits

Will power failing you? Hypnosis can help you tune in to your body’s signals in a new way, as you turn off the cravings, and make permanent lifestyle changes that will have you making healthy choices that feel natural, satisfying, and healthy.

After years of poor and restless sleep, I’m now enjoying deep, peaceful sleep, thanks to Tracy’s therapy.  Quality sleep has also improved my energy and concentration during the day. Tracy’s therapy is well-suited to video conference, so I can have therapy in the comfort of my home and in my jammies.  I highly recommend Tracy and quality sleep!”

Tracy’s hypnosis work got me through a very dark time in our fertility journey, injecting light into my heart when it seemed impossible to imagine feeling good again.  There is so much darkness and unknown during the long journey of trying to conceive, and one of the hardest parts is not knowing when (or if) it’s ever going to end. Tracy helped me to feel ok with the present moment and not get stuck waiting for some ephemeral happy future. Her sessions were informative, grounded in science and the hypnosis itself was incredibly effective. I could also tell she sincerely cares and loves what she does – which makes a big difference.   And then we finally got that positive, I couldn’t believe it. I still get teary thinking about it.

Fertility Client

I had my first hypnotherapy session via phone with Tracy. Phone is an excellent format and offers many advantages over traditional in-office visits. Tracy instantly created rapport (we had never met). She used her masterful skill to reveal my core issue with laser like focus. I found the session relaxed, comfortable, emotionally intimate, efficient and deeply healing. I was ready for her call and she created a most dynamic experience. I highly recommend working with Tracy and the freedom to do so from my home was icing on the cake. PS-This was before COVID-19 existed.”

“I was honestly skeptical about whether hypnosis could really help me with anxiety that seemed so much a part of my identity. But Tracy was so warm, and she made the Zoom meeting feel like we were in the same place at the same time. And once I closed my eyes for the hypnosis I felt transported by her voice and she was very skilled at talking to the anxious part of me. I feel more trusting and less anxious than I ever have felt (in what is arguably the scariest time in my life!).”

What to Expect

Each session is different, unique for each client, though typically for a first session we’ll meet online via Zoom, and talk over key factors surrounding the issues you want to change, and answer your questions about hypnotherapy. From there, I’ll lead you into hypnosis and we’ll begin the work of creating resolution and empowerment at the unconscious  level. Throughout, I will teach you to use simple, effective self-hypnosis tools to reinforce and build on our sessions.

While there is no formula for how many sessions you will need, often goals like stress reduction, test anxiety, sports performance, or improving some sleep issues may require as few as two or three sessions. Issues like fertility, chronic pain, chronic sleeplessness, or permanent weight loss are typically more complex, and will be best served by a series of sessions tailored for your individual needs and timing.

“I have struggled with anxiety and panic attacks for over a decade.  I’ve done extensive work that has helped me understand why I struggle in this way, but until meeting Tracy, I had not been able to make a shift towards actually changing the ongoing anxiety.  I came to Tracy wanting to work on what I believed to be a fundamental inability to ever truly relax.  After our very first session, I started noticing shifts not only in my awareness around relaxation but in supporting myself in ways that allowed relaxation to start happening.  I feel not only much less anxiety but, to my surprise, more confidence and trust in myself.  Alongside these positive results, working with Tracy herself is just a pleasure.  In my work with her, she was so authentically caring and attuned to what I was trying to convey that there were times she was able to reflectively voice things in a way that resonated more closely with my experience than I have ever been able to voice myself!  My heartfelt gratitude to her as I continue to slowly unwind from years of tension into a space that feels free and loving and full of possibility.”

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time. “

Hypnotherapy can help you discover and enhance the connection between body and mind, allowing you to alter perception of pain, promote physical healing, control appetite, and ignite positive behavioral changes.

Location

Update 04/01/20: Until further notice, all sessions will be conducted via Zoom or phone.

Though I miss the wonderful lake view from my cozy office just south of Seattle’s University Bridge, sessions are just as effective from home. For years I’ve been working with clients all over the United States and internationally through online sessions. At first this was because I’ve specialized in topics like insomnia, anxiety, and fertility, and spoken at conferences on those issues, so I was easy for people to find through an internet search. Through years of experience I’ve found the hypnotherapy process lends itself exceptionally well to the online medium. So much so that long before the COVID crisis, many local Seattle clients have preferred working online to effect changes from the convenience of their homes or offices.
