Laura Ryan?MFT-A and certified hypnotherapist with more than a decade of experience?helps her clients transform bad habits into beneficial behaviors by granting them access to their subconscious mind. Her sessions use elements of meditation and guided imagery to lull patients into deep states of relaxation that they experience while remaining awake and aware. This state allows them to focus on aspects of their lives that they want to modify, eventually overcoming the subconscious blockers that have prevented them from making these changes. Laura can help people conquer the psychological addiction of smoking, reduce their daily stress, or cease a variety of other unwanted behaviors, such as biting their nails or paying for groceries with exact change.

Ruba Fattouh has followed a number of different paths in her quest to better understand the human condition. Prior to becoming a master practitioner of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), she practiced meditation, shamanism, reiki, and even dentistry, searching for ways to help others live happy, fulfilling lives. NLP proved to be the methodology that helped her clients the most, and—along with reiki—is what she practices today. By reprogramming the mind and discarding outdated patterns of thought that only lead to emptiness, Ruba helps individuals become effective communicators, relieve anxiety and depression, improve wellness, and improve relationships. These newfound characteristics help students reach their potential in any area they desire, be it health, business, relationships, or communication.
At Mind Over Matters, Tamara Niemann specializes in empowering her clients and helping them make positive lifestyle changes through the power of clinical hypnosis. During her sessions, Tamara guides her clients into a deep state of relaxation in which they remain fully aware and in complete control of their actions, but are susceptible to suggestion and guided questioning. This state allows Tamara to use the pinpoint hypnosis method to identify the roots of unwanted or addictive habits and help to alter the thoughts and emotions linked to those causes, changing or eliminating the behaviors as a result. Over time, these personalized treatments help clients gain a greater awareness and control of their minds, bodies, and actions.
