Michael has always been fascinated with the mind, emotions, and body, and how people can harness their creative power to change their lives for the better. The intersection of psychology, spirituality, and integrative healing continually moves and inspires him.
Michael brings into his hypnotherapy work two decades of study and experience in the healing arts. His intuitive and holistic approach consistently brings powerful breakthroughs to his clients.
Hypnotherapy sessions with Michael often include a robust educational component, whereby he gives his clients biochemical and physiological perspectives on their psychological and emotional experiences. By acknowledging the physiology behind mental and emotional experiences, clients are better empowered to take healing actions from multiple angles. Michael incorporates the best perspectives of mind-body healing approaches from around the world to support, enrich, and deepen his clients’ results. This approach to hypnotherapy is ideal for understanding how to resolve anxiety, IBS, trauma, chronic pain, migraines, depression, insomnia, and many other conditions.
