Everything Starts In The Mind… I Dare You To Change Your Mind!

The Mind Doctor ®

The Mind Doctor® understands that your current drama comes from your past trauma. That’s right, all of the negative things you are experiencing today simply comes from all of the negative things that you have experienced in the past. Today’s adult drama is yesterday’s unresolved childhood trauma.

Without a doubt, 99% of the feelings you are experiencing today such as depression, sadness, anger, confusion, unloved, shame, guilt, low self-esteem, anxiety (insert your personal feelings here) are a result of unresolved feelings about situations from your past.

Yes, you may have talked about it and maybe you have even felt better for a period of time.. but then those feelings return.. maybe you have even prayed about it.. though, we both know that faith without works is dead! Therefore, consider allowing me to work with you to resolve all of the known and unknown issues of your past that are keeping you from being the best you can be, from fulfilling your God designed destiny!

Rejecting traditional counseling and psychotherapy as archaic and irrelevant, this Next Dimension Clinical Hypnotherapist unleashes transformational healing and restoration to the lives of thousands of people.

Whether you are depressed, angry, confused, or experiencing any of the many other feelings, emotions, or thoughts that drive your less-than-fulfilling life, The Mind Doctor® is honored to quickly and painlessly help transform your life!

He has significantly transformed the old and time-consuming image of counseling and therapy and made it exciting and cool!

The Mind Doctor® is to Dr. Phil what Criss Angel is to Penn and Teller magic..

The Mind Doctor® is the Criss Angel of Hypnotherapy – exciting and unpredictable, ever bringing a magical-like quality to the transformative changes that he offers to people…

The days of “tell me more.. what I hear you saying is..” and “how’s that working for you?” are gone!

The days of seeing a counselor or therapist who utilize outdated and literally non-effective talk, talk, and more talk techniques are gone!

The days of seeing a traditional counselor or therapist week after week, month after month, and even for years.. and seeing very little change, or slowly and painfully recalling past memories.. those days are over!

The Mind Doctor® transforms people in as little as 3 to 5 sessions! Quick, painless, and long lasting change!

Everything Starts In The Mind… I Dare You To Change Your Mind!

If you are one...

Of the millions of people who are stuck and unable to change something in your life… unable to change your thoughts, feelings, or behaviors… then you are probably being negatively impacted by your past experiences.

Isn’t it interesting how we can live in the present, but be stuck in the past? Indeed, the impact of your negative past events, your traumatic emotional experiences, your racing and anxiety-provoking thoughts, and the resulting dysfunctional behaviors may seem too painful and impossible to overcome.

Yet, The Mind Doctor® transforms the I’Mpossible to ISpossible, when you believe I’Mpossible..

The Mind is the most powerful tool you have.. and everything starts in your mind..
