Life Guidance Hypnosis


Are you ready to reprogram your mind to work for you?

My name is Mary Lou, and I developed an interest in hypnosis in 2014.  Hypnosis helped me see my goals clearly and gain more confidence.  

The use of hypnosis and subsequent success in my life made it easy for me to decide to become a practioner and allow me to combine my love of helping people and my ongoing fascination with the power of the mind.  I look forward to becoming your partner in building harmony and balance in your life.


I believe that within each one of us, we have all of the resources needed to make any change happen.  Hypnosis serves as a tool to make that transition easier through our subconscious. When we align our subconscious and conscious mind, suddenly change becomes with in reach and we feel the freedom that allows us to adopt new ideas and habits.

Why Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is extremely powerful –  It promotes healing and releasing of old habits therefore changing the story that leads to your future. In sessions you will re-learn a new positive way of thinking and break free from anxiety, trauma, addiction, unwanted behaviors or whatever is holding you back. We will then work towards building the exciting new habits to create the life you want.

Frequently Asked Questions

I understand that Hypnosis is new for many people and brings up a lot of questions. If you don’t find the answer you are looking for hear, please feel free to call me. 

FAQ What Is Hypnotherapy?

The medical community has endorsed Hypnotherapy since 1958. There are various levels of accreditation to become a certified hypnosis therapist. In other words, my profession is a well-established, long-term practice with strict professional guidelines and teachings.

We all can get stuck, even when we want to change. For example, you may want to sleep through the night but it’s not your experience. Or you want to lose weight but you reach for food when you are anxious. Or you continue to experience trauma, all sourced from an event from years ago.

Often we can’t get to the change we so desperately need because we can’t reach our sub-conscious level, which drives a lot of our actions! Hypnosis allows the brain to bypass our conscious mind and talk directly to our sub-conscious. When you receive new messages of hope and healing to your sub-conscious mind, your mind, body, and emotions can receive it directly to move forward in a new and better way.

Have you ever been so focused on a task that someone has difficulty getting your attention? Or so caught up in a movie that afterwards you’re surprised by how quickly time flew by? Or you have been so deep in thought when driving that you are caught off guard when your exit sign is in front of you? These are small everyday examples of self-hypnosis, and we all experience them. Similar to these types of moments, in a hypnosis session, you remain awake and remember everything afterwards. Contrary to a common misperception, you do have full control to leave this hypnotic state at any time, at your choosing – and it’s as easy as opening your eyes.

FAQ3 What happens in a hypnotherapy session?

The first step is a consultation where I learn about you, your needs and challenges. The new behaviors you want to create for yourself. This is not something done quickly and lightly, At the consultation, we come to an agreement on what belief or behavioral changes you want and what messages you would like to be able to say to your deeper self.

“Mary Lou is an amazing hypnotherapist! My sessions with her to alleviate bruxism (teeth grinding) were very effective. She quickly put me into a relaxed and suggestible state. Once in the suggestible state, she used suggestions crafted from our pre-session conversations that spoke deeply and precisely to my mind. I noticed immediate results of relaxation of my TMJ area, and a long-term reduction of my bruxism symptoms. Thank you, Mary Lou!”

“I went to see Mary Lou to deal with some of my anxiety/panic attacks problems that I’d been having my entire life. Little did I know, she’d help me transform my entire mental and emotional outlook on life. When I first started seeing Mary Lou, I had never been hypnotized before. I was actually quite nervous because I’d had no prior knowledge of the subject. To my surprise, when I was hypnotized, it was this lovely feeling of being free and being able to clear my head of anything and everything that my mind was spinning around. Since I have gone through hypnotherapy I have gained many other amazing results from just a few sessions. I was no longer feeling like I was in a state of anxiety but in a happier and more outgoing state. I didn’t feel held back anymore. Other issues I’d been dealing with such as mood swings, nightmares, and just my outlook on life improved dramatically. My confidence was back! I was gaining control of my life again. Hypnosis taught me to relax and focus on loving myself and just being happier. If you’ve never given hypnosis a try, or even if you have- I would 100% recommend Mary Lou. She has been one of the most genuine and beautiful souls that have entered my life for the better and you won’t regret it!”

“I absolutely love working with Mary Lou! In just one session I could feel the transformation. There was a clarity that I awakened to and each session continues to unravel the layers. She is organized and customized a plan of action for me. She has a calming and nurturing voice which was so soothing during hypnosis. I felt safe enough to open up to her which is not easy for me. Mary Lou uses advanced techniques that really work! She even gave me homework to improve the experience. I can honestly say that I feel a definite growth within me. I continue to look forward to these sessions, even the anxiety of scheduling has been put at ease. I can’t wait to learn what I uncover about myself in my next sessions!”
