I can help you to figure out what really matters to you and live your life according to that.
I can help you to tune out the voices in your head telling you to “go go go” and tune into the voice of wisdom calling you to BE YOURSELF.
Whether you want to improve your relationships, make shifts in your life to become happier, or are simply wanting to express more of who you are…
All change requires going within and listening to the voice of your own wisdom.
I will help guide you deeper into your own self so that you can find the answers that are just right for you.

How can we work together?
Length: 90 Minutes
This is perfect for you if:
You are already on your own personal development and/or spiritual path and are just looking for occasional guidance
You want to work with me before signing up for a larger package
You have one specific issue that you keep getting stuck on
Length: 5 or 10 Total Hours, to be used in 30, 60, and 90 minutes sessions. If you have already worked with me, I will recommend a plan for our sessions. If we haven’t worked together yet, our first appointment will be a 90 minute session, after which I’ll recommend a plan going forward for the rest of your package.
This is perfect for you if any of the following are true:
You want to commit to your personal and spiritual development on a new level.
You want to release stories from your past (or from past lifetimes) that are no longer serving you, and create new, affirming beliefs that will help you become healthier in body, mind, and spirit.
You want to become more empowered and create a life that feels in alignment with your deepest values.
You suspect that you have a deeper calling that you have not yet fully tapped into.
“I started working with Iris because I was several years post-divorce and about to get married again, and I wanted to do some serious inner-work to make sure that I was ready for this marriage. I wanted to be whole and complete and grounded in my *self* before committing to another human again, because I wanted this relationship to last.
I am a ridiculously driven person, and I set nearly unachievable goals for myself that sometimes (okay, a lot of the time) leave me feeling depleted, defeated, and exhausted. Working with Iris helps me succeed more at my goals, but more importantly, helps me to identify which goals are *actually important* so that I can use my energy and time more wisely and resourcefully. Working with Iris is one of the best things that has ever happened for me – our work together helps me stay in tune with what really matters in my life and my business.
I recommend Iris to people all the time, and if they only knew what a profound effect it could have on their lives and happiness, she’d be completely unbookable. So maybe not everyone should listen to me when I recommend her lol. That said… I tell my friends that they should reach out to Iris because she is able to ask just the right questions that draw out, from your own heart, just the right answers to your problems. Sometimes it’s uncomfortable, sometimes it’s silly, and sometimes it’s just a relief to let the hamster in your brain take a break from running on the wheel for a minute. Every time I finish a session with Iris I know I am stronger, braver, and more patient than before.”

Who are you?
You are someone who is ready to dig deep and let your guard down, even though you may not actually know how to do that. You are willing to show up for yourself in each session, knowing that you are worth the time and energy.
You know that life is hard enough as it is. If there are things you can do to work on yourself that will improve your health, happiness, relationships, and more, you’re ready to do them.
You may consider yourself religious, spiritual, atheist or agnostic. You may believe in God, the Goddess, many goddesses, spirit guides, or simply a higher power. I’ve worked with clients of Muslim and Jewish faith, as well as Mormon, Catholic and other Christian faiths. You may believe in past lives, be unsure where you stand, or think they’re a bunch of baloney. We will always work within your own belief system. Ultimately, what matters is that you believe in your own power. Even if you’re having trouble feeling it right now, you know that it exists. It is this power within you that we will draw on in our sessions.
Who am I?
I’m an introvert, HSP, and INFJ. Basically, I hate small talk and love diving deep into what makes people unique. All of this means I’m not necessarily the best person to invite to a party but I make a great coach. (Which doesn’t matter to you because you’re not inviting me to your party…you’re asking me to coach you.)
I’m also a certified hypnotherapist with a master’s degree in psychology from New York University, a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Tufts University, and a certification in past life regressions.
My original life plan was to be an actress in soap operas because I had so many intense emotions that I didn’t know how to deal with, and I loved playing someone else so I could express those emotions without feeling personally vulnerable.
Many career ideas later, I ended up finding hypnotherapy in a very roundabout and unexpected way. (Isn’t it always like that?)
Hypnotherapy taught me how to process my intense emotions and gave me tools for becoming the healthiest version of myself I have ever experienced. It also taught me how to work with clients in a way that bypasses all the surface BS and gets right to the heart of the matter. It became my window into a whole new world of personal and spiritual development. It is one -but not the only one- of the tools we’ll use extensively in our work together.
“It is just beautiful working with Iris. She has no judgment and guides you through such an amazing healing process that I would recommend it to anyone. Sessions with Iris have helped me move through some very stubborn old issues that have been really holding me back and while it is gentle, it has been so powerful for me. Her work has helped me feel stronger and more supported than I have ever felt with other therapy. She holds a safe place for you to figure out what is keeping you stuck. She gently guides you and allows you to find the wonderful answers inside of you. Sometimes these are buried deep within, and Iris takes you there. I always come away feeling refreshed and SO much lighter after an appointment. Things that have bothered me for years become clear and the tension disappears. Plus, who better to get answers from than your own intuition?! I love that it is not just another piece of advice from someone else, but wisdom that I really need and applies perfectly to me.”

“Working with Iris has done more than 20 years of psychology and counseling have done. I feel more inner strength. It takes time, but I don’t feel like I am broken or destined to always hate myself.”
“Each session was very different from every other session, but each was moving and insightful, and left me with tools that I can use to approach my daily challenges. I think that this work has given me a different way of looking at chronic pain, which may ultimately be life changing.”
“Once our sessions were done, I found a path to finally take back control of my weight loss and my life. I’ve lost 10 pounds and found out way more than I could have imagined about my body’s needs. Thank you, Iris! You definitely were the stepping stone I needed to get back on track. I now know how to listen to my body.”
