Biography for Clarissa Tu

Clarissa Tu, Occupational Therapist

Clarissa Tu graduated with honors from HMI College of Hypnotherapy. She sees clients privately in Tarzana, Koreatown, in clients’ homes upon request, and also online through video chat platforms (e.g., Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, FaceTime).

Clarissa grew up with parents who were refugees. Reconciling two vastly different cultures, coping with financial struggles, and relearning to define success were areas that hypnotherapy was instrumental in healing. Having been inspired by the impact of hypnosis on her own life, she sought to learn this craft. With hypnotherapy, she aims to aid others in discovering their own power to overcome challenges and live a fulfilling life.

Hypnotherapy has been instrumental in moving past clients’ subconscious blocks and towards their dream lives. Clarissa works one-on-one with clients, conducts groups, as well as educates about the power of the mind through speaking engagements.
