Check all that apply:

  1. you want to embrace your health: lose and maintain weight, stop smoking, increase self-confidence, decrease stress and anxiety, manage pain and overcome fears, phobias and negative habits
  2. you want to strengthen your relationships: to be accepted for who you really are and to learn to change negative thought and behavior patterns to more positive ones
  3. you want to reduce stress and you want to know how to just ‘be’, as well as how to ‘do’, in a more conscious and healthier way
  4. you want to enjoy work, by discovering your unique gifts and talents, work with purpose, passion and in a practical way, whether in your present work or with a new career

If you can relate to any or all of these, you are in the right place!
 
After many years of challenges and accomplishments in my own life, I decided that it was time to live my life with more ease and balance and, in alignment with who I really am.
 
My purpose and passion is to help you help yourself.  I work with you one-on-one, and in groups, to allow you to change your negative thoughts and behavior patterns and then, your actions. Through hypnosis, self-hypnosis and life coaching, I help guide you through major life changes, health challenges, work issues and stress, using a path of awareness and empowerment.
 
I give you tools and techniques that help you utilize both the conscious and subconscious (unconscious) parts of your mind, so that you can change or transform negative thoughts and behaviors into positive ones.
 
I have worked as a general, cosmetic and implant dentist for over 25 years and have taught at Columbia University.  I am currently in private practice in NYC.  This gives me the insight, experience and expertise to help those in business and/or in the healthcare professions.
 
I graduated from NYU College of Dentistry and I am a member of ASCH (American Society of Clinical Hypnosis) and ICF (International Coach Federation).
 
My clients and patients are from all parts of the USA and the world. I have lived and worked both in the USA and abroad. I speak several languages and come from a multicultural background. I welcome you — in all languages and of all backgrounds and cultures!
 
I look forward to hearing from you and meeting you. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call. If you’d like to attend my monthly workshops, for learning, discussing and schmoozing, please let me know.
 
It’s all about YOU and how I can help you help yourself, to live your life with more ease, balance, joy and even, fun!

After suffering the loss of a close friend to suicide, and juggling a very demanding job in finance along with a stressful family life, I realized that in order for me to live up to my potential and the achievement of my most cherished goals, I needed help. Specifically, I needed the dedicated help of someone to analyze, coach and encourage me along the way to success as I defined it. Frankly, I didn’t know what success meant to me, even though I am driven by the idea of success itself.  Gigi’s personal coaching service has given me effective strategies and sound advice to help me define sucess for myself and keep after the ideal despite opposition from the seemingly constant interruptions of everyday life.   Although I didn’t believe hypnosis would work at first, I’ve found that it was the most helpful part of her service. I was pleasantly surprised at the sense of clarity and calm I had after each session. The most poignant revelation of hypnosis was that for me success wasn’t an end goal in itself, but instead a journey to be comfortable with actively selecting my own goals and choosing the way to achieve them.

There is an excerpt from literature that reminded me of the help Gigi provides. It’s the fifth verse of the twentieth chapter book of Proverbs: “Though good advice lies deep within the heart, a person with understanding will draw it out.” if you are thinking of using a service like this, I recommend Gigi as one of those gifted and sincere people who can help you to discover the advice hidden within yourself and most importantly, listen to it.
