You can regain calm, purpose, confidence, success, and joy.   Hi, my name is Marilyn Kopasz. I'm a board-certified hypnotist and a certified Havening Techniques® coach at Essential Health & Hypnosis, LLC.  I spent over 30 years working at the US Department of Defense; I know about trauma, stress, and anxiety!  Over the years, I have healed various issues for myself and helped hundreds of others, from the ages of 7-78, do the same.  

Between personal and work experiences and formal education, I've learned that trauma is not only found in war but also at home, school, church, or work, resulting from mental, emotional, and physical/sexual assault or abuse.  Chronic stress and anxiety can result from a failed marriage, car accident, illness/injury, a failed business venture, or other life events.  

Helping professionals such as doctors, nurses, police, firefighters, EMS, therapists, and attorneys who are regularly exposed to patient/client crises are at risk of second-hand or vicarious trauma.  Help is here.


I'm thrilled to add the Havening Techniques® to my portfolio because it is a gentle yet effective process to achieve positive goals and outcomes.    


Please visit my webpage to schedule a free consultation if you'd like more information.  Sessions can be performed via Zoom or in-person at my office.  

                                                             Are you ready to make a change?  I can help.
