Client Success Stories


I have seen Lauren four times over the last four months for hypnotherapy sessions related to weight loss. Weight loss is a "brain game" as well as healthy eating habits. My sessions with her have been the most rewarding and results oriented techniques I have ever used. She is a compassionate listener, and has a wonderful ability to help you see patterns of behavior that no longer serve you. Listening to my recordings of my sessions has helped me shift my behavior to healthier eating. - Kim R, Kirkland
