As a Consulting Hypnotist I help ordinary, everyday people with ordinary, everyday problems using individual hypnotic techniques. You will find that I am professional and approachable, and offer a comfortable, caring environment to explore your goals.

My professional journey began over 17 years ago working as a mental health specialist at a psychiatric hospital. There I was first introduced to the idea of mind-body medicine, and lead weekly group sessions focused on guided meditation and relaxation.

After discovering my passion for hypnotism, I studied at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute and John F. Kennedy University. I also received specialized training in tobacco treatment from Mayo Clinic and the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

Throughout my career, I have completed over one thousand hours of advanced training, hundreds of hours of supervision, and exceeded the "10,000 hour rule" in my private practice. I am a professional member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, The Center for Mindful Eating, and the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley.

Feel free to call, text or email me directly with any questions. I can be reached at (479) 685-1530 or


Hypnosis is a pleasant and relaxing state of focused attention in which beneficial suggestions can be given directly to the subconscious mind, enabling you to make positive changes. It involves learning how to use your mind and thoughts to manage emotional distress, unpleasant physical symptoms, or to help change unwanted habits and behaviors.

Please review the common questions below to learn more about my services and office policies.


During your three-session program, we will meet weekly to express your goals and challenges in a confidential, judgment-free environment. I'll take the time to listen to and answer your questions, and you will receive a customized experience and leave with an individualized plan to help achieve your goals. Each session lasts one hour and includes a hypnotic recording to reinforce your success.

  • Stop smoking or chewing tobacco.
  • Weight release, mindful eating.
  • Reduce stress and worry.
  • Break unwanted habits.
  • Increase happiness and self-compassion.
  • Relax before a medical procedure.
  • Adjust to a relationship break-up.
  • Overcome irrational fear.
  • Build self-confidence.
  • Improve sleep quality.
  • Control symptoms related to Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Sessions cost $110 each, or if you choose a three session package the fee is reduced to $300. I accept cash, checks, debit, credit and health savings cards.


Client Satisfaction: 96%

My first appointment was nearly 12 years ago while I was a nursing student. The sessions helped me cope with the everyday stress of school, and later with the worry of passing my state board exam. Over the years, Harley has helped me stop smoking, lose weight, and adopt a healthier lifestyle. I highly recommend him to anyone considering hypnosis.
