I embrace each client as a person already in a process of healing, always adjusting to the client’s unique personal history. It’s the client’s higher self consciousness that knows where to lead them, at the right moment.

Hypnotherapy aims to help you gain autonomy, to become the principal actor of your life and to take responsibility for your own well-being. You already have a potential of resources that you will learn to fully put to use.

Are you sick of crippling and limiting beliefs such as “I don’t deserve to succeed”, “I don’t deserve to be loved”, or “I’m not enough”?

If you are reading this, you are ready to embark on this empowering journey! Now is a great time to unleash your true potential and be your true self. 

Rhythm of a hypnotherapy session:

  •  initial dialogue to set up or reactualize goals. 
  •  induction of relaxation to reach a heightened state of consciousness. This allows to bypass the analytical mind and to connect with the subconscious and superconscious mind. The emergence of past and subconscious memories may occur and be explored only with the client’s approval. You are fully present and in control at all times
  • From this higher state of consciousness, the client acknowledges the meaning and purpose of those memories. The resulting transformation of old limiting beliefs and behaviors brings along a deep sense of peace, connectedness and belonging.
  • Integration of the new understanding and transformation in all levels of consciousness, from the young self to the present self.
  • Coming back to a fully aware and awakened state.

First session (90min): $160. Following sessions (60 to 90min): $120 to $160

I strive to provide therapy to clients motivated and committed to their inner work, regardless of their financial situation. Please contact me to discuss pricing.

I will not release any information to anyone without a written authorization from you, except as provided for by law. You have a right to be allowed access to my written record or a summary of my record about you.


Payment is due in full at the time of service by cash, check or credit/debit card. A $25 fee will be assessed on all returned checks. The fees will be discussed with you prior to your first session, either by email or during the free 30min phone consultation. Fees may be subject to change according to specials or discounts.



Please arrive promptly to obtain your full session. Your time slot is reserved exclusively for you. A 24-hour cancellation notice is required or you may incur a fee equal to the full cost of the session. If you must cancel or reschedule due to an emergency, please notify me as soon as possible.

If you decide after arriving that you do not wish to complete your session, you are still responsible for the full payment of the session. Your appointment may be cancelled and designated NO-SHOW if you are ​20​ or more minutes late. No-Shows will be charged the full fee for the missed session.


I do not file insurance or any other third party claims. Insurance companies usually consider hypnotherapy as alternative therapies and therefore do not cover it. Some Flex Spending accounts or Employer Wellness Programs may reimburse employees. Upon request, a statement will be provided for you to submit for possible reimbursement. Please consult your health insurance provider for benefits information and reimbursement procedures.


I may give you “homework” in the form of journaling, thoughts tracking, self-hypnosis or simply practicing with your recorded hypnotic session.
The key to a lasting change is commitment, repetition and motivation. Hypnotherapy involves inner work, which means you need to be willing to participate actively, and practice in between the sessions to attain your goals.


Prescription medications will not negatively affect your hypnosis sessions; however, please refrain from the use of alcohol or recreational drugs prior to your hypnosis session. If you arrive intoxicated/high, your session cannot be conducted and you will be charged for the session.


Hypnosis is effective in relieving some medical conditions (i.e., pain management, migraines, IBS, allergies, chronic pain etc.) but will require a signed release from your doctor or appropriate health care professional to avoid masking symptoms before proper diagnosis and/or medical treatment has been obtained.
