Take refuge in love – transform challenge to strength.

Loss of mental balance starts small, but if not addressed leads into every area of our life – including addictions, mystery illness, chronic pain, and loss of motivation. At Hypnosis Rising I practice a unique therapeutic method called hristotherapy that unifies the conscious and subconscious minds to restore mental balance. On that journey, I’ll teach you skills that you’ll carry with you for the rest of your life.

Don’t count your mind out. Reach out to Hypnosis Rising to restore balance and rediscover joy!

With the acumen of a Ph.D. Physicist, Brian has plumbed those foundations to their depths.
