Dr. Ricks employs a holistic strengths-based approach to counseling. Using both theoretical information and intuitive healing, she will work with you to assist you in reaching your mental health and wellness goals.

Hypnosis is a timeless, natural process proven to be the most effective process for personal change in the shortest amount of time.


Research by Harvard, Duke and Baylor Universities have removed the myths and misconceptions associated with the hypnotic arts and sciences. Hypnosis turns your attention inward. Usually, with the guidance of a hypnotherapist, you can start to control or alter your thoughts, feelings, and physical state. "A hypnotic trance empowers people to activate neural circuits that are otherwise hidden," Dr. Shapiro explains. "This circuitry can activate greater comfort for pain relief, greater mental focus for certain activities, and greater self-esteem."


Hypnotherapy is great for weight loss, anxiety, smoking cessation, better sleep, pain relief AND allows clients to deal with issues faster than any other form of therapy. Could hypnotherapy help you? 

Individual programs are available to help you gain clarity around a variety of life issues. Dr. Ricks uses a strengths based approach that will remind you of the power of yourself that you hold within. Unleash it!
