Biography for Alexis Hines, MS, CCHt

Alexis Hines, Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist

Alexis enjoys helping people, point blank! She was first called into the helping professions fresh out of college when her career began as an advocate for people with developmental disabilities. Later on, Alexis assisted with running a program for disenfranchised youth funded by New York City’s Department of Youth and Community Development. When she noticed a disparity in the number of youths of color versus caucasian students who had been referred to her as a result of being placed in special education, Alexis became curious and wanted to learn more!

As a result of her curiosity, she decided to attend graduate school and became a certified school psychologist. After obtaining her graduate degree, she began working in residential settings with developmentally disabled adults who were dually diagnosed. She also gained the opportunity to work with autistic and developmentally delayed toddlers through early intervention and then with school aged children at an elementary school.

After acquiring all of the aforementioned experience, Alexis was recently privileged with undergoing a gradual spiritual awakening which led her to begin working with her beloved ancestors. It was through this spiritual work that she received the divine guidance and inspiration, in her dreams, to attend school for hypnotherapy. Alexis was informed via spirit that she should dedicate her life to spirituality and that hypnotherapy would be a way for her to do so.

Thus far, Alexis believes that spirit has steered her in an amazingly exciting direction. In fact, her spiritual journey is held so close to her heart that she often states “I wouldn’t trade this journey in for the world. It’s wonderful how many lives I’ve touched with hypnotherapy, from the young to the old, everyone seems to benefit from this modality. I am genuinely able to help people which makes me feel great as a person and grateful to be of service!”

Experience

Truth be told, Alexis has been helping people since childhood. One could often find her lending a listening ear to her classmates, friends, and family as well as random strangers who sensed that she could be a shoulder to cry on when no one else would listen. Alexis is someone who makes others feel safe, and she believes that this is the reason she attracts people who not only need help but are willing and able to do the work to improve their lives.

Across both professions, school psychology and hypnotherapy, Alexis has helped people ranging in ages from 2-70. She has extensive experience in behavior management and working with people who have developmental disabilities as a school psychologist and has utilized various methods such as meditation, deep breathing, visualization, brief solutions-based therapy, cognitive behavioral strategies, and motivational interviewing to assist those in need. As a hypnotherapist, Alexis assists professionals such as actors, nurses, and, yes, even military ops personnel with gaining the confidence needed to conquer demanding job interviews, auditions, fear of public speaking, barriers to attaining desired employment, promotions, certifications, etc.

Although she owns a private practice called Alexis Hines Hypnosis, Alexis also owns a resume writing service called Prosperity Designs Hand Made Resumes by A.X.H. This service enables her to combine a love for professional writing with hypnotherapy. With Alexis, clients have benefited from working on the following: job interview preparation combined with hypnosis; desensitizing fears related to criticisms and rejection while on the job market and during auditions; reducing the fear of panel discussions, group interviews, auditions, and other public speaking engagements; learning self-hypnosis to enable motivation; actualizing career and business goals; engaging in self-care; creating a work life balance; bettering interpersonal communication at home and at work; and developing a growth mind set.
