Biography for Teresa Hegji, CHt

Storytelling has always fascinated me. Behavior has always intrigued me. Why do people say one thing and yet do another? Have you ever found yourself saying, “That was so out of character, why did I do that”? Why, because we are human and fascinating creatures. Everyone has a story, a path that they are on and wish to alter in some way or another, the subconscious mind is the path for that change.

I have spent a good portion of my life as an actor, dissecting a character to bring their story to life, so choosing to become a Hypnotherapist (aka Behavioral Therapist) was not far off the road I was already on.

I will be your detective listening between the lines, observing as you share your story to unlock the source that creates the habit, the anxiety, the stress and bring light through your darkness. Bringing new perspective and sprouting resolution within. Empowering you through therapeutic guided imagery journeys where you escape to your future and see what is required to change in your present to achieve your goals with ease.

Together, we will discover the gift of creating those scenarios in your mind that make positives shifts where you find a more balanced life filled with clarity, hope and possibilities.
