Biography for Lisa Machenberg, CHt

Lisa Machenberg, Certified Hypnotherapist

I believe that hypnotherapy can unleash the power of the subconscious mind to help individuals to turn their goals into reality. I help clients access their own wisdom and determination. I specialize in issues at each stage of life: fertility, pain free labor and child birth, relationship strategies, parenting, comfort and wellness, and follow through.

Experience

I have been in private practice in Tarzana and West Los Angeles, California since 1993. The scope of my hypnotherapy practice includes, fertility, pain management, fears and phobia elimination and habit control. I also work with parents to teach them how to use hypnosis to become the moms and dads they have always wanted to be.

Since 1994, I have been an instructor at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute in Tarzana, California. My classes include: medical hypnosis, crisis intervention, hypnotic regression, defense mechanisms, and ethics and law.

I am the facilitator of the Infant and Toddler Program at Gan Malibu Preschool in Malibu, California. I have conducted continuing education seminars for the American Hypnosis Association on: Working with seniors, gourmet weight loss with hypnosis, using hypnosis to find your soul mate, fertility and hypnosis, parenting and hypnosis: the natural partnership.
