A Bit About Hypnosis

Hypnosis is an integral part of your life. Whether you know it or not, you have been hypnotized since birth, and continue to be every day. Each and every experience we have which influences the mind in a way that produces a belief about ourselves or our world, is hypnosis.

Parents, guardians, teachers, friends, colleagues, books, movies, music, television, radio, scientists, clergies, news, everyone and everything else you can think of which may have affected you consciously or unconsciously has contributed to the way you view yourself and your world in this moment. This is fine, unless you don't think it is.

Most everyone has become who they are today through the influence of both conscious and unconscious programming. The aim of therapeutic hypnosis is to bring your power back, so you can choose how to program your own mind. Through this process, you become more and more conscious of your experience.

I encourage you to leave your expectations behind when it comes to hypnotism. It isn't always sitting in a chair while listening to someone chant in a soothing voice, "Deeeeperrrrr..." though it can be if that method is particularly effective for you. (Don't ask me to use a pocket watch though... I don't have one.) More often than not I prefer to use hypnotic methods which feel more like coaching and conversation.

I had suffered from a fear of criticism that significantly limited my potential as a musician. Through the power of hypnosis, Devin helped me overcome my fear. I now feel empowered and enthusiastic when performing for others. Hypnosis has proven to be an invaluable resource in my personal growth and happiness.

The Service

Think of me as your personal mind coach!

The service I offer is eclectic and empowering. Having many facets, it appears differently for different people, and even from encounter to encounter with the same person. Just as the human being is more than the sum of cells and organs which make up the body, this service is more than just the elements of which it is composed. Some of these elements may be likened to life coaching, mindfulness, meditation, hypnosis, counseling, body movement, and energy work. The Service, however, is none of these! It is a unique and special experience which evolves out of each shared moment, and tailors to the needs of every person.

I work primarily through virtual media, such as audio and video communication. This allows for maximum access. I can be anywhere, and you can be anywhere, as long as we can connect digitally. To be most effective, headphones are highly recommended. For people living in close proximity to me, the option of meeting in person is available. I am also willing to travel to teach workshops and company events if proper accommodations are arranged.

I work with people who are 100% COMMITTED to putting in MAXIMUM EFFORT to achieve their goals. If you are not willing to do the necessary work, then I cannot help you. This is your journey, and I can only guide you. I assure you, however, that I will be here to support you every step of the way.

I encourage you to bring paper, ideally in the form of a notebook or journal, and pen (better than a pencil in this case) because you may want to take notes and write down any insights you have during your session. It is up to you to document your findings, as YOU are the explorer of your self. I will encourage you also to begin a practice of journaling, if you haven't already, as it is very healing and expedites the transformative process.


It was an absolute pleasure to work with Devin. He is extremely insightful, calming, and comforting. He was adept at guiding me through my thoughts in a relaxing manner while also helping me work through negative emotions, and he truly listened to what I had to say.

In the worst times of my life, where I felt alone and scared, Devin empowered me to understand and control my emotions. I feel more secure and appreciate life in a whole new manner. If you are feeling stressed or just need a little help, I highly encourage you to contact him.

A whole lot of good work can be accomplished in just 33 minutes using the techniques I will share with you. This initial consultation, or the "interview", is very important because it gives you the time and space to crystallize your intention for positive change.

During the interview, we will discuss your situation and how you would like it to be different, and we will make progress toward that goal. After 33 minutes have passed, we can talk about whether you want to continue working with me. If you do, we will agree on a plan of action.

Expect success!

I used to get so irritated when I made an errant shot, but now, I just stay in the flow, taking pleasure in the challenge of the recover shot. I can’t hardly wait for the Handicap season to start this spring, if the way I played in Albuquerque after our sessions is any indication, I will easily lower my handicap by three to four strokes!!

Meeting and working with you is one of the highlights of my life. I am happily recommending you to anyone who would like to make an improvement of almost any type in their lives.
