Depth Hypnosis is a collaborative, therapeutic process developed by Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D. more than twenty years ago. If you have reached a point in traditional talk therapy where you feel stuck, or perhaps have never found a comfortable relationship with a counselor or therapist - this dynamic approach may provide the fit you are seeking. My practice provides you with the benefit of more than thirty-five years of expanding awareness and experience in holistic health care, allowing us to work together to guide and support you in moving into a more confident, secure, and joyful relationship with yourself, your life, and those around you.
Trained and Certified as a Depth Hypnosis Practitioner, Hypnotherapist & Spiritual Counselor, my education in Hypnotherapy, Buddhist psychology, Energy Medicine, Transpersonal psychology, and Shamanism has come through studies with Isa Gucciardi Ph.D. at the Foundation of the Sacred Stream in Berkeley California. Additionally, I hold a Certificate in Sound, Healing, and Consciousness and continue to study the intersection of therapeutic sound, sacred sound, and consciousness with Zacciah Blackburn Ph.D., founder of the Center of Light in Chester, Vermont.

Why Depth Hypnosis?
This psycho-therapeutic approach is designed to empower the client and has proven effective in helping thousands of people suffering with symptoms of imbalance or dis-ease such as depression, anxiety, autoimmune issues, addiction, PTSD, interpersonal relationship issues, and family or group conflicts. A recent Pilot Study to investigate the efficacy of Depth Hypnosis for symptoms of depression, anxiety and PTSD indicated a significant decrease in symptoms and an increase in overall well-being over the course of only eight (8) treatment sessions.
The structure of Depth Hypnosis places the client firmly in control and requires the practitioner to guide and support the client in accessing the insight and solutions which lie within their own consciousness. The synergistic combination of key principles of Transpersonal psychology, Buddhism, Hypnotherapy, Energy Medicine, and the earth-based wisdom of Shamanism, provides a single access point to the ancient healing traditions of many world cultures. The Depth Hypnosis model yields a therapeutic approach appropriate for individuals, couples, and families, and one which is also highly effective as an approach to conflict resolution within groups.
The "Depth" portion of the name of this modality arises from the ability to work at a deep personal level in a non-threatening, safe, and empowering manner - it does not refer to the client entering a deep hypnotic trance or being unconscious. The term "Hypnosis" describes periods of time in which the client is guided by the practitioner into a state of alert yet focused relaxation while remaining fully conscious and in control of the process. This lightly altered mental state may be referred to as a trance or hypnotic state, and most closely resembles daydreaming, meditating or that relaxed state of mind between being soundly asleep and fully awake.
I began my professional life as a Registered Nurse working in the acute care/hospital setting, with a specialty in surgery and trauma care. My experience providing skillful care and support to both patients and physicians gave me a clear look into our medical system and a deep appreciation for the miracles that modern medicine can perform.
In tandem with this appreciation came the awareness that many of the more mundane and widely experienced human discomforts are not well addressed by our health care system, including musculoskeletal problems, anxiety, sleep disorders, headaches, stress, depression, and many of the side effects of chronic illness. Further studies and a private practice in the Complimentary health care field of Therapeutic Massage and Myofascial Therapy afforded me the opportunity to provide supportive, nurturing care with a more holistic approach while focusing on the varied physical, mental and emotional needs of clients.
The evolution of my holistic practice into the areas of hypnotherapy, consciousness, and spirituality has been influenced by my personal growth and healing; a long process that led me to the study and practice of Depth Hypnosis and traditional Earth-based wisdom. My intention is to support you and provide guidance in navigating the pathway to happiness and well-being. Moving into a more confident, secure, and joyful relationship with ourselves and the world around us is a journey well worth taking.
