Vince Anthony Pitre is a certified hypnotherapist who leads the clinical hypnosis and therapy services at the Center for Healing Arts & Massage. Prior to becoming a hypnotherapist, Pitre was an overweight, chronic smoker and binge drinker for a period of time in his life before eventually seeking hypnotherapy treatment to successfully break his addictions. It has been 20 years since he smoked or drank, but Pitre continues to rely on hypnosis to maintain a healthy body weight, reduce stress, and lower anxiety. Inspired by the positive impact of hypnosis on his life, Pitre opened his own clinical hypnosis and therapy practice to help clients resolve trauma, fear, grief, and pain related to unwanted habits or detrimental behavioral patterns.
