“As a Hypnotherapist, I do my absolute best to create a warm and caring environment in which you can relax and focus on creating the changes that you came in for. Having once been a Hypnotherapist’s client myself, I know first-hand how life-changing hypnotherapy can be. The changes I experienced in my own life were so uplifting that I decided that I needed to share hypnotherapy with others. This isn’t just a job for me — it is a true passion for helping people.” — Sasha Carrion, CHT
