I'm a clinical hypnotherapist with a unique treatment modality. My sessions are client-led and often include deliberately regressing back to specific memories to reimagine and heal them - It's very similar to the movie Inception.
My work with others is heavily informed by my own experiences - I am an ex-Orthodox Rabbi who was raised in a religious fundamentalist home, as a result I've personally grappled with a plethora of mental health challenges myself. Consequentially, I bring a very open mind and firsthand empathy to my work with others.
My development has included a two year Masters in Clinical Sociology program at the University of North Texas, nine months of hypnotherapy training, hundreds of hours of vipassana meditation and over 10 years of various forms of therapy that I've explored on myself.
My treatment modality is eclectic, and is informed by such modalities as IFS (Internal Family Systems), Gestalt, Existential, and Eriksonian Hypnosis.
I have a very existential and nihilistic approach to life. I don't sugar coat things, and I believe the biggest questions like death, suffering, and meaning, should be addressed head-on. If you are a similarly independent, creative thinker, if you are bewildered by much of the world around you, then my approach, which I call Hishtalmoot, might be perfect for you.
How I can help
The work I do is not for everyone. It is intense. I have a saying, "The only way out is through," and I help you create and find the inner resources you need to experientially travel through the darkness until you come out on the other side.
Many of my clients benefit from working with me to align their emotions and body with intellectual insights or understandings they already have, often through conventional talk therapy or personal introspection.
The work I do is integrative - my goal is for you to feel changed after a single session, to come away with more than just mental understandings and instead to feel a shift in how you experience yourself and the world.
Here are some types of people or struggles that I have helped people achieve success with:
- Ex-religious, struggling with RTS (Religious Trauma Syndrome)
- PTSD and Anxiety
- Career success and anxiety around finances
- Relationships and Sexuality
If you are curious about hypnosis and are committed to doing whatever it takes to take your life and emotional experience to the next level, I invite you to explore hypnosis with me. You'll know very quickly, in 1 to 3 sessions, whether my approach is the right fit for you.
