People settle, for things in their lives they don’t really like, that they feel powerless to change.

I work with both the conscious and unconscious aspects, sometimes indirectly, in ways that engender changes on

both of these levels.

I enable and empower my clients to open up to new directions and possibilities, to new ways of feeling, doing, and being.

I heard about Hypnosis Silver  Spring from a friend who was able to stop smoking after meeting with Dr. Don. My challenge

was with anxiety and insomnia stemming from a divorce. This was affecting my ability to overcome simple roadblocks and

concentrate on basic tasks at work and in my personal life. Working with Dr. Don was a blessing. He was able to bring back

to positive subconscious parts of my personality, and eliminate the negative reactions to triggers. He not only worked with

me to correct the anxiety, but also provided me with mental tools and emotional  techniques that I will carry forward for the

rest of my life. Very easy to work with and highly recommended.

I’ve never been hypnotized before and came in for a completely different issue. But Don

realized my state and taught me techniques for mastering my power self and dealing with

difficult situations in my life. This literally changed my life.
