New Online Video Courses!!

You have a few great courses to choose from. For practitioners who want to learn how to "Coach the Unconscious Mind" there is a four full day training that's broken down into small video chapters for easy learning and integration. If you want to see this change work in action you can choose from any of the coaching demos, with more to be added monthly.

For anyone suffering from anxiety, the entire "Anti-Anxiety Toolkit" is also available in the same easy to navigate format.


Melissa specializes in anti-anxiety techniques that she teaches the clients to do themselves. Utilizing the latest research in neuroscience and mind/body medicine, she shows you how to use your mind to rewire your brain and change habituated unconscious patterns more easily than you imagined possible.

Melissa teaches a rapid form of self-hypnosis to every client. She also provides every client with a one breath trigger for stress reduction and craving elimination. This empowering cooperative method of hypnotherapy provides the client with all the tools necessary for lasting change with the minimum amount of office visits.

Melissa’s smoke cessation program is extremely successful and easy. Smokers learn three rapid techniques for craving elimination and stress reduction. Her weight loss program is enjoyable and healthy, focusing not on diets and feeling denied & deprived, but on health, vitality and an exercise regimen to fit all types of lifestyles. Melissa believes in changing the relationship the individual has to food, thereby changing behavior patterns. This program is fun and inspiring, and makes losing weight and getting in shape easy, replacing a negative self-image with one of renewed energy and positive imagery. The number of sessions varies from two to four, depending on the individual.

When working with pain management Melissa requires a referral from a physician, believing that pain is a signal or a warning of a problem, and that to remove the pain without addressing the cause is dangerous and unethical. Our ability to interfere or block pain signals with our mind is widely documented and highly successful. Hypnosis for pain control has no side effects and takes away the feeling of hopelessness and dependence that sufferers of chronic pain normally experience. It is safe, effective and non-addictive.

Melissa believes in teaching stress management techniques in every session, no matter what the goal. The role that stress plays in compulsive behaviors such as overeating and chain smoking and the myriad of illnesses attributed to or exacerbated by stress is astounding. When one's ability to deal with stress is addressed, many other issues become manageable or non-existent. In today’s world, the one breath technique taught by Melissa becomes a vital and indispensable tool for everyday living.

The use of hypnosis for childbirth is becoming one of the more popular methods for achieving a stress-free gentle birth. Hypnosis can be used in place of, or in conjunction with anesthetics. Some women feel hypnosis will turn them into some kind of zombie and they will miss out on the birth experience. This could not be further from the truth. The hypnotized woman is relaxed, totally present, and feels pressure instead of pain during a contraction. Melissa not only advises the mother’s partner on how to deepen and support the level of hypnosis, but also actually gives them a session so the process is demystified. The partner can play a vital role in the whole process. In addition to making the labor relaxing and enjoyable for all involved, including, and especially the baby, hypnosis is also quite efficient in dealing with all the other symptoms of pregnancy. Whether it’s morning sickness, headaches, water retention, or excessive weight gain, hypnotherapy has been proven effective on all accounts. This should be a joyous and memorable day, not wrought with fear, stress and pain. As a recent study has shown, women who were hypnotized recovered faster, felt much less discomfort, required little or no medication, and delivered babies who scored much higher on the APGAR tests than women who learned other labor techniques.
