Throw off the weight of everyone else’s stories and figure out what’s theirs and what’s yours.

All sessions are held over the phone or Skype/Zoom/WhatsApp.

Prospective clients are often nervous about the idea of working with a hypnotherapist so this gives you a chance to talk with me and make sure you feel comfortable going forward.


During your free consultation, we’ll set up your first 60 minute session if you feel ready.

This will be a unique experience that blends modalities – discussion, hypnotherapy, meditation, and breathwork. We’ll spend most of your session in a meditative state where we can access your subconscious mind and release the trauma stored in your body. You’ll end your session feeling renewed and ready to move forward.

After our first session, we’ll decide if it’s a good fit to move forward together.

Future sessions will be 60 minutes on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis, depending on your needs.

Some clients work with me on a specific issue for a short period of time (anywhere from 1 to 6 months) while others prefer to work with me on an ongoing basis, just as they would a therapist. I’ll let you know after your first session how many sessions I recommend for your particular goals.

No Toxic Positivity Here:

There are so many mixed messages out there, right? To be clear, my approach is not one of toxic positivity or the old manifesting BS that tells you that you are to blame for your circumstances because you’re not trying hard enough.

We can change our stories all we want, and there will still be realities outside our control. We will still live in a world with systemic racism, oppressive laws, and looming climate change.

But you can still be an agent of change in the ways you choose to, without having to take on the stories – and the trauma behind them – of everyone around you.

What My Clients Are Saying:

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.


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 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.

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.

-Rebecca West,

Iris is warm and genuine and generous and present. I immediately felt completely comfortable with her, as if we had already known each other for a long time.

After working with her I have new insights into a troubled relationship, problem eating patterns and even new career-enhancing ideas. Iris is a multi-talented, multi-faceted gift that I would highly recommend anyone give to themselves.


Iris will gently lead you down a path to a place where you can breathe again and constructively reflect on what means the most to you.

All that leads to a calmer, more productive state where you can figure out how to achieve your goals and dreams, or simply live more consciously and comfortably in your own skin. You’ll be surprised by your sessions with Iris. There’s no hocus pocus or mumbo jumbo, just quiet and powerful reflection skillfully guided by Iris.

-Shirley Braden,

Within one session, I walked away with answers to problems that have plagued not just my business, but my life for years. 

When I first started my work with Iris, I was recovering from major business-meets-existential burnout. I was also grappling with the overall purpose with my business, what I was building, and how I could better structure it for scale.

Like, why I’m so prone to working myself to death, why scaling my business elicits so much fear inside of me, why saying “no” is so hard… and more. Within days and months of our monthly sessions, I’m discovering the direct results of our work together, from finding it’s easier to say “no” without the guilt, FOMO, or shame, completing projects that are transforming the business I have into what I really need to thrive, and more. In the 6+ years I’ve been in business, I’ve never been this happy or fulfilled, and have already surpassed my most profitable year ever and it’s only November. I’m so grateful to have her with me on this journey, and I can’t recommend her enough!

-Natalie McGuire,

The session was incredibly powerful for me and I was able to make so much more progress than I had in traditional therapy.

I’m a mom of 4, including one transgender child, currently going through a custody battle with their dad. I’ve been under a lot of stress, and I was hoping a session with Iris would help complement some of the goals I’ve been working on in traditional therapy, related to symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress eating, and PTSD.

As a psychologist myself, I was familiar with the benefits of hypnosis generally, but I’d never had a personal experience with it. To be honest, I was afraid it might be “hokey” or just not work. I had a lot more insight into some of the challenges I’ve been having and how they tied into some issues earlier in my life. I felt more in touch with my feelings, and while that was difficult, it also helped me work on the issues more. The “safe place” visualization was amazing and I’ve used that since the session when I’m experiencing stress or anxiety.

Also, as a mom of a transgender child, I know that when I’m at my best then I can best support my child as well with their unique challenges. I think it’s really important for my own emotional issues to not be weighing me down or interfering with my ability to help my child. I’m really excited to have another session!


Working with Iris helped me work through all of the fears that came up when I got my first book deal, which felt like both a huge gift and an invitation for total failure.

As someone who lives with chronic illness, I had fears around physically being able to do this. What if I wrote a horrible book?! Or just couldn’t do it at all? In order to have the energy to write, I was going to spend three months in the woods in a house alone — what if I was horribly lonely or afraid? What if I was sicker by the end? What if I failed at everything?

We envisioned each circumstance so I could better plan the journey. We pulled out emotional and practical tools I already had or created new ones I could tap into. I envisioned my ideal book-writing scenario, seeing myself working in joy and love, and confidence. And so when I was finally alone in the woods, I knew to take a dance break or do a meditation or whatever to get me where I needed to be, day after day, as pages unfolded. I had so much more fun writing, because of that! I was far more creative than I would have been otherwise! I reveled in my weirdness! I was a braver writer! I was kinder to my body, too.

During sessions while there and since I’ve come back home and continued to edit and now market the book, Iris has continued to help me nurture my body and fortify my confidence. New experiences are scary, especially when you live in a body that asks you to play it safe. But because of hypnotherapy sessions with Iris, I’ve been able to truly be present for this experience and enjoy it, too.

-Jacqueline Raposo,


Immediately after the session, I felt super relaxed and peaceful, and I noticed a sense of inner calm throughout the rest of the week.


As a mom of 4 children, two of who are LGBTQ+, I find myself feeling easily triggered, both by my own kids when they’re not listening to me and my family members who say hurtful things about our support of our transgender child. I was hopeful that a hypnosis session would be a way to process some deep emotions and find relief from the anger I’ve been feeling. I was a little nervous about hypnosis, having never done it before, but Iris put me at ease by explaining the process first. During the session, I found myself tearing up and smiling really huge at times. I was surprised at the depths of emotion I experienced. Overall, this was a very productive and helpful session and I feel like it will support me as I support and love my family.
