Are you ready to make a change?

No matter what age or stage of life, we all face personal challenges that disrupt our health and happiness. If you are struggling with a difficult situation, clinical hypnosis is a powerful and effective way to help you overcome obstacles and get back on track to wellness.

Dr. Rotolo's practice is built on three key components: Education, Advanced Hypnosis Techniques, and Personalized Coaching. These elements are combined to help clients achieve lasting success. You can learn more about Dr. Rotolo's approach and specific areas of specialization below.

Evaluation & Education

Clinical Hypnosis begins with an in-depth case history. Clients receive detailed education on cognitive and behavioral aspects of the presenting issue and how hypnosis can be effectively applied.

Advanced Hypnosis

A program of advanced hypnosis and guided imagery is designed to uncover root causes of the presenting issue and promote change at the subconscious level.

Personal Coaching

Client progress is supported and accelerated by motivational and behavioral coaching to implement effective strategies for long-term success.

Discomforts of the Mind

About 40 million Americans struggle with anxious thoughts. One in ten adults have panic attacks each year. If you’re one of them, you probably know how uncomfortable and frightening they can be. But did you know that "automatic thoughts" like anxiousness emerge from the subconscious mind? With clinical hypnosis, you can learn to control and often eliminate the unwanted feelings that are holding you back. Don’t spend one more day stuck in a cycle of worry and sadness. Request a free consultation and take the first step toward a new, calmer, and happier you.

Anxiety & Worry

Panic Attacks

Fears & Phobias

What are you afraid of? Whatever it is, you are not alone; and clinical hypnosis can help you control it, reduce it, and replace it. Dr. Rotolo has designed a powerful program to flatten fears at the subconscious level. Over the course of several sessions, the fear is systematically desensitized to give you back control of your life. Clinical hypnosis is particularly effective for addressing fears because it allows for "exposure" to triggering situations through guided imagery, rather than real-life encounters with fear objects. This means you will be able to face your fear head on while remaining in a safe and controlled environment.

Here are just a few of the common fears and phobias that can be helped with clinical hypnosis:

Fear of Insects

Fear of Illness

Fear of Failure

Fear of Flying

Fear of Heights

Fear of Success

Fear of Dogs

Fear of Travel

Fear of Public Speaking

Fear of the Doctor

Fear of the Dentist

Fear of Death

Habits & Problem Behaviors

Some habits seem impossible to break. They may even become sources of comfort to cope with stress, pain, loneliness, or boredom. But the truth is that these same habits only make us less happy and less healthy. Clinical hypnosis targets the subconscious associations that drive unhealthy habits. We uncover the underlying motivations for these behaviors, redirect them, and eliminate the habit at its source. No matter what habit you're trying to break, a personalized clinical hypnosis program can help you achieve your goal.

Some common habits and behaviors that can be addressed with clinical hypnosis are:




Social Media


Video Games


Nail Biting

* Hypnosis is not a treatment for addiction. This practice offers services for enhancing self-control; however, if you are suffering from addiction, we can refer you to a licensed physician and support from Alcoholics Anonymous or another sobriety program.

Discomforts of the Body

The body and mind are not separate domains. It has long been understood that stress, emotional upset, and subconscious associations can manifest as physical discomfort or impede healing. Modern healthcare rarely prioritizes the mind-body connection. Many are therefore left to "live with" chronic issues for which there is no physical help. Clinical hypnosis provides a holistic option for supporting healing and wellness.

The American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association, and the National Institutes of Health have all acknowledged the effectiveness of hypnosis as a complimentary adjunct to treatment for a range of conditions. Research demonstrates that recovery from illness, injury, and surgical procedures is enhanced when hypnosis and guided imagery are utilized alongside treatment. In cases where treatment options have been exhausted, or symptoms present as side effects of necessary medication, hypnosis can be applied to desensitize and reduce discomfort.

Patients and physicians seeking to incorporate hypnosis into a treatment plan are encouraged to request a consultation. Issues for which hypnosis may be utilized include:



Pre-surgical Pain

Weight Management


Irritable Bowel

Post-surgical Pain

Smoking Cessation

Tension Headaches


Phantom Pain


Ringing in the Ears

Sexual Dysfunction

Please note: this practice does not diagnose, treat, or cure medical conditions. Clinical hypnosis is provided by referral and in coordination with a licensed health care provider.

The truth about hypnosis

Hypnosis is often shrouded in mystery and misconceptions, particularly in the media. You may have witnessed a movie scene where "hypnosis" is used to manipulate someone's thoughts or attended a stage show where a "hypnotist" encouraged participants to perform peculiar acts. While entertaining, these portrayals misrepresent the true nature of hypnosis.

Did you know that hypnosis is a natural, everyday occurrence? Its name is derived from the Greek word hypnos (meaning sleep), but hypnosis is not technically sleep. It actually refers to a pre-sleep state in which the brain generates alpha and theta waves, the mind and body are at ease, and imagination flourishes. 


Hypnosis has tremendous power as a learning tool. In clinical hypnosis, we use the natural advantages of the hypnotic state to help clients quickly learn new ideas, discover new perspectives, and make positive life changes.

How hypnosis works

In hypnosis sessions, clients learn to effortlessly relax their minds and access the hypnotic state. This simple skill produces tremendous benefits for personal well-being and unlocks a new world of possibilities for those seeking to learn and grow.

By working with your coach, you will uncover the subconscious patterns and associations standing in the way of your goals. Together, you can utilize your new hypnotic talents to work directly with the subconscious, building new associations that will help you succeed.


This kind of learning is very effective, and it can happen very quickly. Positive changes may occur after just one hypnosis session, or the changes may appear in the following days or weeks. Either way, hypnosis is capable of bringing lasting changes, even in cases of the most stubborn issues. 

And most importantly, hypnosis is an enjoyable experience! You will find your sessions comfortable, relaxing, and fun. It is very common to hear "I feel great!" and see a big smile on a client's face after hypnosis.
