About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Having over twenty-five years of practical experience with annual continuing education gives me a depth and breadth of knowledge and skills to help my clients achieve exceptional results. I have created over a dozen self-help audio programs, teach at hospitals and medical centers, and I have served two terms as President of the National Guild of Hypnotists, Washington State Chapter, and currently serve on the board of the Washington Hypnosis Association. I view each client as special and unique, and each session is customized for them. I provide audio recordings of my sessions for clients to take home to listen to, and I spend time teaching my clients how to apply self-hypnosis techniques on their own.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

My job is my calling. It's an honor and a privilege to be trusted with my clients' dreams, goals, challenges and vulnerabilities. I have a deep respect for the power of the mind and the heart, and believe that every person is capable of overcoming obstacles and achieving joy and happiness. Something almost magical happens when my clients get that "aha" moment, or when they are ablel to experience relief from long-standing issues. It's fabulous to hear the success stories from my clients, getting feedback that the work we did together allowed them to shift in wonderful, positive ways. I love what I do!

    gave me motivation, but was realistic telling me "if you screw up one day that is o.k. , everyone does. Get back up on your horse. I have been riding every night, and eating better.I want to be better, and as a result I feel better. Thank you

    Thank you James! It was a pleasure to work with you and I'm glad to hear you're experiencing positive results.

    I went to Lauren for help integrating all the facets of my life. I am an aesthetician and co-owner of a spa, I am an artist and I have my home and family. I found that even though I love my life, I was not being positive in my thoughts - when in my studio I would worry about my business, when at my business I would think about my home to do list. After talking about my thought process and what I wanted to change, Lauren put together a fabulous guided meditation that I listen to at least three times a week. I have increased creativity in my studio, many clients coming to me and I'm still working on a more organized home office, but it's getting better!! I also offer to play one of Lauren's Relax and Renew meditations for my clients during their facials, and they love it!

    Renee, thank you for being willing to share your journey of resolving inner conflict and experiencing more ease and flow in life. Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy can support people in all walks of life in releasing blocks, organizing thoughts, and allowing that inner creativity to flow in many ways. And I'm glad your clients are enjoying the relaxation programs! You are talented in so many ways!

    I was having trouble with my left leg for a couple years. I tried massage, Pilates, and just about everything. I finally realized that it was in my head, and I went to see Lauren. The next day I had complete range of motion back and I've never had trouble since.
    Lauren A. Apr 9, 2014

    Thank you for sharing your review, Christine. It's wonderful when we can apply the power of the mind-body connection for healing support, pain relief, relaxation and increased comfort. I'm so glad you're enjoying the results of your session and feeling better!

  • Thom I. Jan 8, 2014
    I highly recommend Lauren. She helped me as I launched into a tough and high stress stage of my career, bringing out the best in me and building my confidence. One very professional and well targeted session, with a resulting hypno therapy recording that I listen to most nights. She is a great investment for your career ! Highly worthwhile!
    Lauren A. Apr 9, 2014

    Thom, I appreciate your feedback. Stepping into a new career is an ideal time to harness the power of your subconscious mind for focus, confidence, and self-esteem. I enjoy working with clients like you (corporate executives, business owners, and sales professionals) who understand the value of maximizing the power of their mind so they can effectively accomplish their objectives.

    I have see 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.
    Lauren A. Apr 9, 2014

    Kim, thank you so much for sharing your insight. Yes, weight loss is very much a "brain game," and I'm so glad you found the key to unlock the power of your subconscious mind! It was a privilege to work with you.

    I have been battling an addiction problem for years with little to no success until I went to see Lauren. After my visit with her I followed her instructions to the letter and have never looked back. Lauren gave me my life back and I have been addiction free from that day to the present. I owe her everything thank you so much Lauren you are the best!
    Lauren A. Apr 9, 2014

    Thank you Rosanna for being willing to share your experiences. It's always an honor to work with people like you who are willing to open up, be honest, and discover how naturally those addictive patterns can shift - and how much better life is on the other side!

  • Tammy R. Sep 20, 2013
    My time with this amazing modern hypnotherapist has been nothing short of fantastic! Laurens techniques and suggestions are easy to understand and follow. I have gained great insight and tools being present during her workshops as well as sessions. I would recommend everyone experience her melodic voice, intelligence, and charismatic teaching.
    Lauren A. Oct 24, 2013

    Tammy, thank you for sharing your perspective! It's always delightful having you in my classes.

    In one session Lauren got to some deep work around sadness in my heart and helped me release it. I regularly listen to the amazing recording she did of our session and it brings me back to the powerful work we did. I highly recommend her!
    Lauren A. Oct 24, 2013

    Thank you so much for sharing your insights, Wendy. Glad you enjoyed our work together!

    Lauren is fantastic. I recommend her to many of my clients for anxiety and insomnia, especially. she is very healing.
    Lauren A. Oct 24, 2013

    Linda, thank you for the review and the referrals. It's always a pleasure working with you to help your clients experience more ease and relief.

  • Christine J. Feb 16, 2013
    Lauren's gift comes directly from the heart. I have witnessed first hand her ability to remain present to her clients while lovingly holding the space for those in her presence. Lauren's intuitive and insightful sessions (group and individual) provide immeasurable value to those seeking support, guidance, or clarity. I can't recommend her enough!
    Lauren A. Feb 16, 2013

    Thank you for the recommendation, Christine. It's always an honor to teach with you in a clinical setting.

  • Theresa M. Feb 14, 2013
    Having met Lauren at an extended Neuro Linguistic Programming course, I was immediately impressed with her demeanor and understated knowledge. When I learned that she was a hynpotherapist as well, I took advantage of her skills. After one session (I intend to have more) I returned home with a hypnotic CD that was created specifically for my needs. She has an amazing, empathic quality to her voice! I've been listening to the CD every day and will continue as it also sends me into a meditative state. I can't think of a thing that would better her performance. However, when she completes her book, I did suggest that she include a generic CD so that others could experience her excellent utilization of tone. The background music is everso soothing as well.
    Lauren A. Feb 14, 2013

    Thank you for the positive feedback, Theresa! Coming from you, that's a very high compliment, as you are very knowledgable yourself.


What types of customers have you worked with?
I help my clients identify and overcome limiting beliefs in a coaching style setting. We explore their dominant thoughts, beliefs and behaviors in the context of their goals and values. Once we agree on their chosen course of action, I invite them to relax and close their eyes as I guide them through a hypnotic experience to install empowering new beliefs. I send them home with a custom hypnosis audio recording so they can practice their new beliefs in the form of mental rehearsal and receive powerful hypnotic suggestions for change. Clients can partake of the sessions at their own pace, with no pressure, contracts, or hidden fees.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I teach mental strategies for weight loss at Sound Medical Weight Loss.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
The best advice is to do your research, ask questions, and find someone you feel comfortable working with. I realize that some people may not know what to expect in their first session, so I record their custom hypnosis or coaching session and send them home with a recording to listen to as "homework." In a similar way that television and radio commercials work by repetition, your audio recording helps to impress your new goals and behaviors deep into your mind.
