MEET BRITA

MEET BRITA

First, a little history. As an undergraduate at University of Wisconsin-Madison, I experienced overwhelming anxiety. Hypnosis appealed to me because I wanted to try something that went beyond more traditional forms of therapy. I completed a course of hypnoanalysis, a hypnosis protocol for treating an array of mental health issues.

I’m happy I tried it because hypnoanalysis changed my life. Some changes were immediate—like the end of my panic attacks and sleepless nights—and some changes manifested over a longer period of time. By the end of my course of hypnoanalysis, I felt balanced, calm, and capable. I was surfing stress and anxiety without even thinking about it. I found the protocol so powerful and fascinating that I decided to get my Master of Social Work and learn how to do hypnoanalysis myself.

MY APPROACH & MODALITIES

You bring a unique and valuable experience into my practice; my job is to facilitate and guide you as you self-discover. In my practice, you will receive cutting-edge treatment with a solutions-focused emphasis to unveil and heal the answers you already have within you. I use hypnoanalysis, a highly effective, structured protocol to reveal and heal the roots of your symptoms. I also am a classically trained therapist with training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Transactional Analysis, and Internal Family Systems.

While hypnosis is the most powerful tool for creating long-lasting change, talk therapy is certainly appropriate in some situations—sometimes just talking it out is necessary.

Working together, therapy is a place of healing and growth, and an opportunity for you to find the answers that you have been searching for.
