Advanced Certified Hypnotherapist 

Maryann Petersen values a holistic approach that cultivates the development of insight, newness and peace in your life. Maryann brings her life experience, professional expertise, research and compassionate heart to her therapeutic work and encourages you to not struggle or suffer alone, but instead to get the help you deserve. She provides strategic and confidential therapeutic care, and her nurturing and compassionate qualities will guide you on the path towards the change you desire. Maryann treats individuals, couples and families and offers therapeutic group sessions. While her focus is trauma and PTSD, Maryann treats all aspects related to mental health including spiritual concerns, depression, anxiety, self-worth, abuse history, identity and sexual issues and beyond.

Maryann became fascinated with human resiliency and the ability to heal during her undergraduate studies. She focused on humankind’s immense ability to overcome throughout history, even after suffering severe trauma, poverty, war and genocide. Maryann continued her learning by working abroad in several geographical areas challenged by intense poverty and violence. This led her to more in-depth research on the human experience, particularly human suffering and the ability to not only survive but to thrive.

Her passion for seeking healing and cultivating resiliency brought her to pursue her MS and become a Clinically Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LCMFT). In order to focus more intensely on her specific passion to relieve the debilitating effects of trauma, PTSD and other life challenges, she became an Advanced Certified Hypnotherapist (ACHT) in a two-year intensive experiential training. This propelled her own continuing transformation and solidified her expertise in helping others receive relief and healing.

Maryann’s diverse life experiences mirror her diverse experiences in the mental health field. She has a wide range of training and professional expertise, from her work at a psychiatric inpatient residential facility with adolescents, to her long-time specializations in trauma and PTSD, to her current private practice setting where she continues to be passionate about providing consistent high quality care.

Rebecca Holman LMSW, ACHT 

Licensed Master Social Worker, Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist

Sometimes life can feel like watching the same movie or listening to the same playlist over and over again. There are parts or songs that give you insight, make you feel amazing, leave you with a bad taste in your mouth, make you want to look away, or just plain turn it off.  If you're ready for change, I can guide you to increase healthy connections, love yourself in a way you never have, and release the struggle and blocks you've hidden inside. Everything you need to heal is already inside you! I tend to think outside the box, so your therapy experience may not be what you’re used to.
About me…I have been working with adults who have experienced trauma and anxiety for over 10 years. I also have a generous background in ADHD, thanks to learning how to work with my ADHD kiddo, and let’s face it, it’s hereditary, myself. I'd be honored to join you on your journey to discover your purpose and show the world your light.I draw from multiple modalities to create a plan just for you!  I have advanced training in Heart Centered Hypnotherapy as well as a blend of brain science, somatic techniques, holistic approaches, and evidence based practices. 
'We are all meant to shine, as children do. As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.' -Marianne Williamson
