The first appointment is a consult, in which Karen takes a complete history and explains how  hypnosis works. She also discusses what the client can expect to achieve with hypnotherapy. This takes about an hour to an hour and a half.  The first session in hypnosis is usually scheduled for the next week and lasts about an hour and a half.

The next session is usually scheduled for the following week.  During this session she makes a personal tape for her clients while they are in hypnosis.This tape allows them to immediately begin their own self-hypnosis at home. Each tape is personalized just for their needs. While using the tape the client is hypnotizing themselves, reinforcing and empowering themselves with the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that lead them to achieve and maintain their personal goals and desires. Karen supplies flash drives or CDs for the tape.

Karen follows their progress carefully over the phone, and will have them come back if some fine tuning needs to done, or if the client would like to work on other problems or concerns. In many instances several issues can be addressed at the same time.

Karen works with children over the age of 4, teens and adults.  She makes home and hospital visits(there may be an additional fee for time and travel) and she is available for speaking  engagements.  Karen works with clients with developmental disabilities, autism, ADD, ADHD, and complusive behaviors.

Payment is with check, cash or credit card at time of visit. Most insurance companies do not cover Hypnotherapy.  Some company flex plans may reimburse.
