what does it feel like?
hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that you have likely experienced before – like when you lose yourself in a great movie or when you’re driving a familiar route and tune out not noticing perhaps some of the landscape as you drive by, that’s what hypnosis is like. it simply feels like you are in a deep state of relaxation, just like a guided meditation and no different than having a conversation with your eyes closed, feeling super relaxed.
don’t expect to feel hypnotized
it is much like a very deep state of relaxation, you are still awake, conscious, but extremely relaxed. everyone experiences being in hypnosis differently, both between individuals and even across multiple sessions. physically, some cannot feel their body anymore while others feel comfortably heavy; some will not move at all during the sessions while others will actively move their hands and arms and some feel nothing at all. there is no right or wrong way to experience it – the depth of trance is not an indicator of how effective the session is. regardless of how it feels, it will work for you.
is it safe?
you will not lose control or submit to the power of the hypnotist.
you are in total control the entire time and you cannot be made to say or do anything against your will. you remain in charge of what you want to share, how you want to respond and fully capable of communicating how you are feeling – if you do not want to answer a question, if you do not feel comfortable, if you are too cold/hot (ex. temperature wise), or anything else that may come to mind.
in a therapy setting, hypnosis is simply being induced into a state of consciousness where you are fluidly able to access your subconscious and are highly responsive to suggestion or direction, but only if you feel it is in your interest to do so as we are working with your internal values and beliefs.
as you are awake and conscious, you will also remember and be able to recall everything that takes place during our session together.
get ready to understand the underlying reasons that have held you back!
• discover – we start by discussing what you’d like to work on, the symptoms and your background in relation to the issue that is limiting you today. then you’ll relax into hypnosis, and we will explore and interpret moments from your past that are influencing your current behaviors, habits, or patterns.
• reframe & release – once we identify the underlying reasons that have held you back and understand how it no longer serves you, we can effectively release the subconscious programming.
• rewire – finally we will work together to instill new, positive beliefs effectively reprogramming your subconscious. following the session, a personalized hypnosis recording will be sent to you to listen to for 21 days. research states that any new habit needs this amount of time to change or create a behavior and install new neural pathways in our brain.
• how change happens – how each session works, and feels is experienced differently by everyone, even if you have multiple sessions. as a guide:
- immediate: you feel a shift right away with changes in your physiology, thoughts, and behaviors right in the session and directly after
- gradual: change happens gradually, day by day, cumulatively over time
- retro: you don’t feel or see obvious shifts right away however one day you look back and realize all the things that are different in your life
each session is approximately 2 hours.
are you ready to rewrite your story?
talk is expensive, let's get straight to the root of the problem.
hypnosis is not the method itself, but a crucial part of the process as it facilitates direct access to the subconscious mind. once there, a variety of tools and techniques are used to uncover the root cause of why you feel the way you do. it addresses issues from the core because breakthroughs happen when we understand the root cause, rather than just addressing the symptoms of the presenting issue as issues are only manifestations of a deeply buried belief.
the roots of RTT® are drawn from traditional psychotherapy such as gestalt, solution-focused and cognitive behavioral therapy, neuro-linguistic programming, hypnotherapy, and mindfulness and is a distinctive therapeutic approach developed by renowned therapist Marisa Peer.
each session is highly personalized and once we identify the origin of the beliefs that led to the issue, we can rewrite our subconscious programming to reframe and overcome negative beliefs, values, habits, and emotions utilizing leading scientific principles of neuroplasticity to enable the creation of new neural pathways in the mind.
you have the potential to alter the way you think and approach life in a positive way.
the subconscious mind holds the secrets. it is our biological memory bank, a complete collection of our experiences that has been on record since our inception - it never rests. it contains not just the memory, but the interpretation of these experiences, which then formed certain beliefs and habits, both negative and positive, informing the way we behave, react, and move in the world.
according to cognitive neuroscientists, only 5% of our cognitive activity is conscious, the other 95% is beyond our conscious awareness – the subconscious mind is instinctive, reflexive, automatic, programmed. its objective to maintain safety and familiarity but can’t discern right from wrong. it simply acts based on deeply rooted beliefs made somewhere, somehow. the answer to overcoming our issues is rooted from a program or belief located in the subconscious.
simply put, we can’t make long-lasting change without accessing it!
hypnosis induces a relaxed state of mind that then allows direct access to our subconcious mind, where we can discover the origin of the beliefs and behaviors that have led to our issues.
I don't know where to begin in writing this testimonial. Julie is such a gift.
She has a way of developing a strong rapport with her clients. I felt that she genuinely cared and was interested in getting to know me, and helping me work through my blocks, from our initial discovery session. The core issue we focused on was stepping into my power fully, embracing my gifts, and no longer dimming my light to please others, and omg - the results have been phenomenal!
After just two weeks of listening to her hypnosis recording, I found myself signing up to perform at an open mic. I have always loved to sing, but never in a million years, would I have imagined myself singing in front of people! It just happened. The reprogramming worked.
Julie and I are actively in touch and she is often one of the first people I think about when I want to share life updates. I am so grateful to have found such a solid support system in Julie. She is truly an inspiration to me!

Julie’s kind and warm nature made it easy to relax and trust her. She is professional and detailed, traits from her corporate days which I appreciate more coming from a similar background.
I found the whole RTT session very insightful. We went back to experiences from childhood through young adulthood which laid the seeds for certain negative beliefs that still persist me today. Then Julie guided me to find the connection between these incidents and how they continue to impact my behaviors today.
My favorite part is the custom recording we are given. I love how it’s so tailored to me and enjoy feeding my subconscious mind with positive affirmations and messages that Julie created just for me.
I definitely feel like the issue on hand has lessened its grip and continue to listen to my recording often. I've already sent my brother and fellow hypnotherapy classmates to try a session with Julie because I highly recommend her!

My session with Julie was so great! Julie was so warm and outgoing and made me feel seen and heard. I came to her for an issue of fear of stepping out of my comfort zone. She uncovered my beliefs and helped me overcome them. She was very intuitive and knew what to ask, knowing exactly what I needed during my session. My session went smoothly, and I felt amazing afterwards.
She made me a recording to listen to for 21 days and putting in everything I wanted to hear and so much more. I’m past 21 days now going strong and still listening. I find myself much more confident and doing things I never imagined doing before. I no longer overthink things and situations, I’m surer of myself, I feel a sense of security within wherever I am and trying new things.
I definitely recommend Julie as she knows her stuff and is very skilled, you definitely won’t be disappointed.

I reached out to Julie because I had some social anxiety that prevented me to speak in public, to be comfortable at work and in my private life, in social events, meeting and connecting with new people was very hard for me.
During the session I discovered a lot of things and the root cause of the social anxiety – it was eye opening! Julie did an amazing job, she was so kind, I trusted her during the process, it was very good. And she made me an amazing recording that I started to listen to right away. It’s been more than a month and I’m still listening to it because I really enjoy it. When I listen to it at night, I feel so relaxed and the next day I feel very confident. I actually did a presentation in front of my colleagues and it was great, I LOVED it, I felt very confident.
Julie is amazing, if you any issues, don’t hesitate to contact her. She’s the one that can help you because she helped me and I recommend her to all my friends and family who are struggling with things in life. She’s amazing and I love her!

Julie, you are an impressive RTT Practitioner! Thank you for taking me on, for helping me get to the root issues and I love how you did the session.
I am taking the time to listen to your recording purposefully, letting your words form images and emotions within me. Your recording is so beautiful, so what I want to hear and to soak right into me. I know these seeds are eager, screaming to sprout! Thank you, what a sweet spirit you are.

I sought Julie's assistance to help me work through some self-esteem issues that had surfaced after the pandemic and wanted to address. From the get-go I found her easy to work with, very relatable and empathetic. As someone that had never experienced RTT I found her guidance invaluable and focused. To this day I still go back to my recording to reconnect with the purpose.

Julie was incredibly supportive and helped me move past a deep-rooted feeling of abandonment, a block that was holding me back in many areas of my life. She helped me realize to put my needs first and set my own boundaries without feeling guilty or selfish for doing so. This is something I’ve found incredibly difficult to do in the past. But I felt extremely safe and open with Julie and this allowed me to be completely comfortable in her presence which is why the session went so well and why I got so much out of it.
She went out of her way to make sure I was doing ok afterwards with the regular check ins and helped me with any obstacles that arose during that time, which I really appreciated. It was such a pleasure to have her guide me through this and I couldn’t have pictured anyone better to take me through that journey. I would highly recommend Julie for anyone looking to do RTT and wanting to let go of any blocks that aren’t serving them anymore!
