MEDICAL DISCLAIMER. In addition to my psychotherapy practice I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, certified by the American Hypnosis Training Academy. I do not attempt to treat or diagnose medical disease of any kind. Hypnosis in no way replaces standard medical procedures, but works in conjunction with them by freeing the patient of feelings or attitudes that may be compromising his or her natural immune system. Hypnosis helps create strong mental expectancy and reduces stress, thereby normalizing the action of the autonomic nervous system. Hypnosis for any medical complaints requires a referral from your primary care physician.
