Client Testimonials

"Shawna knows what she's doing and I recommend her highly."

"After a combination of death, divorce, neighborhood gossip and losing two jobs, I had an unhealthy share of negative self-talk in my mind. I worked with Shawna to craft statements to send me in a more positive direction. We worked together using our messages during six hypnotherapy sessions. I also utilized a recording daily that Shawna prepared for me. 


Our work together netted incredible, positive results. I had tried therapy, medicine, acupuncture, energy work, exercise, coaching and all else to overcome these plaguing thoughts as well as resulting sadness and discouragement. Despite my foray into alternative and traditional healing methods, I was scared at the prospect of hypnotherapy. Shawna was educational and professional, going at my pace and comfort level. I found it was like a great massage--relaxing and peaceful, but as I said before, netted fantastic, positive, long-reaching results with my mind. 


Shawna knows what she's doing, and I recommend her highly."

"I felt comfortable and at ease from the beginning."

"I am extremely grateful that one of my doctors suggested that I make an appointment with Shawna at Watershed Hypnotherapy! I honestly didn't know what to expect going into it, but Shawna explained her approach, and I felt comfortable and at ease right from the beginning. She listened to my concerns and issues, and provided valuable input. We worked together to craft wording and imagery that was specific to me and my needs.


Shawna also made a few recordings for me, and they are fantastic! It sounds and feels like she is right next to me, talking me through! The combination of her voice and the customized statements and imagery that we created together - for me - ease me into relaxing and accepting what I'm hearing.


Overall, I found hypnotherapy to be an excellent experience that provided me with breakthrough in-office sessions, and tools to utilize on my own. Shawna's kind and insightful perspectives, voice, manner, personality, and professionalism enhance the positive outcomes."


"I like and respect her process..."

"I would never have quit smoking without Shawna's help. I like and respect her process - it is not a "quick-fix" like going on a crash diet; instead, a 5-week process with a long-lasting, happy outcome.  The first step to making a positive change in your life is your complimentary first visit with Shawna. 

She is amazing!"

"Thank you Shawna for your talent, your warmth, your kindness. Thank you for helping me save myself."

"I had a very important test coming up where I had to be my very best. A week before the evaluation, I had a very disturbing event happen in my life that distracted me from my focus and filled me with anxiety and self doubt. I immediately booked a session with Shawna, and I thank God I did. With Shawna's caring, supporting guidance and amazing skills, we were able to clear that upset in just ONE session! The effect of that upset just evaporated and within an hour, I was back on track feeling more empowered and confident than ever.... A week later I ACED THAT TEST!!!!!  Thank you Shawna for your talent, your warmth, your kindness. Thank you for helping me save myself."

"With the help of hypnosis, I started to understand that I can do anything that I really want to do. ... I feel like Superwoman!"

"I have always struggled with my weight, and keeping up my motivation. I hit a very low point in my life when I was filled with self doubt. Instead of trying to change the things that I was unhappy with, I chose to dwell on them, hoping that magically the negative feelings would disappear.  I couldn’t see any light at the end of the tunnel. When I heard about Shawna’s work with hypnosis, I knew I had to give it a shot. During our first session, I was welcomed with warmth and gracious understanding. Shawna was so easy to talk to and she made me feel safe and confident. The very next day, I went to the gym and felt great. And that was just the beginning---after just a few sessions I began to recognize more and more positive things about myself that I had never thought of before, helping me to continue to build my motivation. With the help of hypnosis, I started to understand that I can do anything that I really want to do. I have now made exercising and healthy living a regular part of my life. I practice self hypnosis daily to calm my mind and keep me focused on my goals. I feel like Superwoman!"

"Shawna has helped me regain control of my life and find a sense of calm 

that I'm not sure I've experienced in decades."

"I really wasn't sure what to think of hypnosis - I'm a busy professional and hypnosis always sounded like more of a parlor trick than anything else. But when I found my stress levels to be through the roof - indeed, they had reached a point where I was not able to relax or slow my mind down no matter what I did - I was ready to give anything a try. Now, what can I say? After only three sessions, Shawna has helped me regain control of my life and find a sense of calm that I'm not sure I've experienced in decades. I wouldn't think twice about recommending her services to anyone considering hypnosis."

"...her amazing combination of empathy and skills helped me completely turn around my thinking."

"I was struggling with motivation to get my new business started.  I booked a session with Shawna, and her amazing combination of empathy and skills helped me completely turn around my thinking.  Very shortly after my session, I took my first very important step to find an office. It didn’t take long to find the perfect space for my needs—-and I’ve kept things moving forward ever since. Thank you so much, Shawna, for helping me jump start this process!"
