Dr. Ginger's Methods Include

(but are not limited to):

Talk Therapy

Talk Therapy is derived from Sigmund Freud, one of the founders of depth psychology, who coined “psychoanalysis” in the early 19th century. It is a process of investigating the conscious and unconscious mind. By engaging in talk therapy, underlying motives and drives may be brought to the surface where they can be acknowledged and addressed.


In hypnosis, Dr. Ginger explores the stories of your life with you, and co-creates scripts with suggestions for healthy lifestyle changes. These scripts come in the form of mantras, affirmations, and recorded messages. The idea is to repeat the suggested behaviors and healing thoughts over and over again, so they register in the unconscious mind. These thoughts and healthy healing ideas are key to changing false beliefs, which can free you from old and unwanted patterns, creating more space for joy and peace in your life.

Dream Tending

Dream Tending serves as a vehicle to the unconscious. Upon delving into the unconscious via the dream portal, ancestral influences, psychological motives, and emotional drives may be revealed. Once brought to the surface, the underlying issues and concerns can be understood, addressed and, hopefully, healed.
