“Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” Carl Jung

Your Success

Committed to your success, driven by your goals, this solutions-focused, collaborative therapy is truly transformative. I offer a highly effective and specialized method of psychoanalysis in the state of hypnosis called Hypnoanalysis as well as talk therapy while not in hypnosis. Hypnoanalysis, especially, follows a general theme and it is quicker than talk therapy. In this therapy, the work follows a general theme.

  • Unveiling the cause of the problem with you, on your terms.
  • Helping you to remove this barrier, this often hidden conditioned response, through analysis and release.
  • Facilitating your discovery of your core truth, power and worth.
  • Helping you to live your life with new tools, core truth, power and freedom.
  • A hallmark of my work is the relative quickness of this process. After reaching their goals, my clients frequently prefer to continue with a once or twice a month schedule because hypnosis is so very therapeutic.

If you are looking for a counselor in Chicago, if you really want to get started on the rest of your life, investigate this information further and contact me today. I look forward to hearing from you.


As a counselor in the beautiful city of Chicago, I work with people who are age 18 years or older who are looking to unveil their barriers and then access their own clarity, self-direction, security and healing in the following areas:

The Hypnoanalysis Program Or the Talk Therapy Option

The highly personalized, powerfully transformative program of Hypnoanalysis helps people progress in their lives quickly. Collaboratively, we:

  • Unveil hidden barriers to feeling good and to your success.
  • Release the trauma, pain and barriers from your mind and body, clearing the way for success.
  • Reveal what is true for you and who you really are and set you on your path, firmly.

Peaceful Power™

Do you:

  • Feel frustrated, storing the words that you really want to say?
  • Feel guilty and ruminate when asking for what you want or when saying “no” to what you don’t want?
  • Dream of, and cringe about setting boundaries that will serve you in a healthy way?

This collaborative course of Hypnoanalysis and talk therapy:

  • Unveils and removes hidden barriers against peaceful, powerful communication and boundary setting.
  • Reveals your beautiful, powerful voice.
  • Teaches assertiveness and communication skills, outside of hypnosis, giving you feelings of confidence, peace and ease.

You can communicate directly, clearly and set boundaries elegantly, peacefully and powerfully. Set yourself free.
