Biography for Julie Weingarten, CHt

Julie Weingarten is a Certified Hypnotherapist, Certified Trauma Practitioner, and Reiki Healer practicing in Altadena, California, and offering distance sessions online. She has a background in child development which sparked her interest in how our brains work and process information.

Julie combines hypnosis with somatic healing to align body and mind.

Hypnosis works from the inside out, by helping one access the larger portion of our brain that we’re not cognitively using, to better orient our subconscious with our conscious mind. An excellent side effect of hypnotherapy is that it is extremely relaxing!

Somatic healing works from the outside in, discovering how and where the physical body is storing and reacting to trauma and emotion; then focusing on the specific areas to clear and release negativity.

‚ÄčIn addition, Julie is a Certified Reiki Practitioner and effectively combines Reiki clearings with her other modalities and also offers clearings on their own!

Julie works with clients on issues ranging from habit control to stress relief to motivation to trauma release, and so much more. In addition, she helps clients to explore and heal their pasts through inner child work and past life regression. Julie also teaches hypnosis for childbirth and works with children on various issues beginning at the age of 5.
