Donna Re, LVN, EFT-P
 Certified Hypnotherapist 
Licensed Hypno-Band® Practitioner

 Private Sessions are $150 for the first visit.  This visit usually lasts from 1 1/2 - 2 hours but there are no time constraints during this session.  I rarely schedule anyone after a new appointment so that we are not in any way rushed. For this reason I do not charge by the hour during the first appointment.

Reinforcement Sessions* (for the same behavior) are $130

New Behavior Sessions* are $140 and then $130 for any reinforcement.

*After the first hour, there will be a fee of $25 per half hour. (This does not apply to Hypno-Band or initial sessions)

Note:  All of these sessions include a CD recorded live.  These CD's belong to you so that any time in the future that you need a little help for a behavior, you just need to start listening to your CD again.

Enhance Personal Growth

Sports Performance

In sports, the players get into the zone. Their focus and dedication can be rewarded with the use of hypnotherapy.

With hypnosis a  player can:
  • Enhance concentration and focus.
  • Practice and play with greater intensity.
  • Have composure in competitive situations.
  • Increase confidence.
  • Reduce anxiety and stress.
  • Play at peak performance.
Academic Performance

With hypnosis, a student can increase focus and concentration in order to learn more effectively. When the mind is relaxed, one is better able to absorb information and to learn. With hypnotherapy, you can enhance your study skills and ability to take tests without anxiety.

 Spirit Guides

Do you believe that you have a
"Guardian Angel" and wish that you could meet him or her? In this session, Donna will guide you, during a hypnotic trance, in meeting your own spirit guide and learning his/her name. You may be able to walk and talk with the spiritsof loved ones and ask your spirit guide questions. Everyone's experience will most likely differ, but you will be giving yourself an opportunity to meet your spirit guide.

Past Lives

First of all, your subconscious does not know the difference between fact and fiction. Regression is an excellent tool in learning about irrational fears and phobias one may have. It the subconscious believes it, it will make it true in a sense.

Initially, I was resistant to do regressions as I wanted my career to stay on a medical and clinical path by helping people with medical hindrances.  After doing several regression sessions, I amended my  prejudice as I found people who had physical symptoms which defied medical etiology (why something occurs).  Whether pain, fear, phobias or difficulty losing weight there was a reason in their past that is still preventing them from moving past it.

I record these session on a CD for the patient.(During private sessions).  Although one normally remembers everything from a session when they are awakened from hypnosis, it is interesting to hear oneself "relate in their own voice", memories of a time past in a present tense conversation.

Work Stress and Motivation

People often say they need stress in order to meet their deadlines or goals. With the phone messages piling up, people needing information ASAP, unscheduled meetings and the daily grind of a job, stress easily becomes distress. Stress can interrupt motivation and make your job more difficult. Many corporations sponsor hypnosis seminars for their employees because they find the employees become less stressed and more productive. It a win-win for everyone. In your personal life stress can create havoc in your sleep patterns, bring on anxiety and disrupt your lifestyle. Hypnosis to reduce stress and increase your motivation can have lasting benefits both in your professional life and your personal well being.

Biofeedback is similar to hypnosis but we are using equipment versus suggestions.  There is still a lot of imagery involved.  For instance, with migraine patients, I would attach a temperature sensor to your fingers, and using imagery, you would warm your fingers.  This diverts the blood flow into your fingers, decreasing the pain in your head.

I also use AVE (Audio-Visual Entrainment)  Wearing headphones and colored glasses, I will set a program that will be fine tuned to your particular needs.  You will keep your eyes closed and between the flashing lights in the glasses, and tones in the headsets, you can change your brain waves for different enlightenment such as sports performance, energy, stress and many more issues.

Private Sessions

Private sessions with  me are $150.00 for the first session which usually lasts 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Additional sessions are $125.00. Each private session includes a CD of the session. Also, I will be available throughout your journey to coach you through any difficulties.

Group Therapy

If you are interested in a getting a group together for weight loss, sales performance or exercise motivation. Group therapy sessions may be the answer for you and your friends.  Group rates are as follows:
  • 2 people - $125each
  • 3 people - $110 each
  •  4 people - $100 each
  •  5 or more - $90.00 each
Corporate Packages

Many corporations are looking for ways to enhance employee production,eliminate stress and improve employee moral. I design Corporate Packages with the HR Representative to meet your budget . I am very accommodating on working to fit the time of this session with your employee's schedule.


Imagine having the results usually achieved by having a surgical Gastric Band fitted but not having to go through surgery and spending thousands of dollars! Gastric Band surgery is not for everyone. Usually the surgery is only carried out on people classified as “clinically obese” and with a high Body Mass Index (BMI). A surgical Gastric Band works by reducing the size of the stomach and therefore you eat smaller potions and feel full. Through this method, it is possible to lose weight easily.
 Quit Smoking or Manage Weight

Hypnosis is just one of many ways to successfully help someone quit smoking. But the key is simple: YOU must choose to change. If not, then long-term success is very unlikely. Hypnosis is not a cure; it is an aid in obtaining what you consciously resist. Hypnosis is used to sell the benefits to the subconscious before any suggestions are given to quit smoking or to begin weight reduction.I start with the benefits approach. Often there is more work to be done, however, as people may overeat as an adjunctive response to another unresolved issue. Depending on the cause disclosed by the subconscious mind, I may or may not be qualified to help the client resolve the issue.If there is subconscious resistance to the more positive approach for any type of goal, an approach would be to ask the subconscious to reveal what the cause is so that it may be released. Without release from the true cause, the problem may return. And before you do this, you are well-advised to be hypnotized only by a competent, certified hypnotherapist.


 Fears, Phobias and Anxiety

Do you want to put an end to the feelings of unfounded fear and uncontrollable panic you have been experiencing? If you have experienced an anxiety attack when having to meet someone new, speak before a group or leave the safety of your home, but may be able to shed this panic by using hypnotherapy designed especially for your personality. A safe and affective solution to release your fears, phobias or anxiety
 Chronic Pain

As hypnosis is a non-invasive technique that encourages you to achieve heightened levels of focus,relaxation and sensation it is often used to help alleviate chronic pain.  Studies indicate that 75 percent of clinical and experimental participants with different types of pain can obtain substantial pain relief through hypnotherapy  A private session is tailored for each patient's specific pain area and pain levels The session is recorded and you receive a copy on a CD. After an evaluation, I may determine that biofeedback may be a better option for you.


 Migraine Relief

Hypnosis presents itself as a potent means for doctors who would like to treat their patient completely. Doctors are referring
more patients as hypnosis is becoming more popular in the field of pain management.. As patients are less inclined to take multiple drugs for migraines, hypnosis has become a viable alternative. Hypnosis can provide relief from migraine and cluster headaches.


As there is no cure for fibromyalgia,  hypnosis is now emerging as one of the best alternative treatments available for fibromyalgia pain. The use of hypnosis has been proven to reduce pain symptoms and it has become a doctor-recommended treatment. If you are suffering from fibromyalgia pain symptoms, consider hypnosis as a treatment option.


Many physicians believe that stress is one cause of hypertension, and they are
quite knowledgeable about ways to relieve your stress. A proven technique that uses relaxation and suggestion is hypnosis.

It may take several weeks to lower your blood pressure, so give the therapy time to work. Because hypertension is related
to stress, I most will likely focus on relaxation and meditation techniques.
These will help you calmly deal with all the issues you face daily.  You must always check with your doctor before  making any changes or stopping your hyper-
tension medication.

EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques

EFT is a combination of therapies so you can benefit from both at the same time. They are mind body medicine and touch acupuncture
(no needles). EFT is an emotional version of acupuncture where certain meridian points
are stimulated by tapping on them with the  fingertips. Emotional stress  contributes to pain, disease and physical ailments, and EFT can provide surprising physical relief.  EFT is gentle, yet effect in pain management. The theory of EFT is that negative emotions are caused by disturbances in the body's energy field. EFT theory derives from similar principles behind those of acupuncture.

Menopause Symptoms

Many women are turning to hypnosis to alleviate the symptoms of menopause - hot flashes, mood swings, insomnia, weight gain and headaches. Hypnosis allows a person to accomplish a deep state of relaxation causing these symptoms to be replaced with positive messages. Donna will also teach you some breathing exercises and acupuncture points to help lessen, if not completely remove, menopause symptoms.
