Alexandra Liss, CCHT, is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist located in Hayes Valley, San Francisco. She studied under the renowned hypnotherapist, Dr Clarence Trausch, famous for his Mind/Body Medicine method which led Michael Schwass to become the first quadriplegic to ever walk. The scope of Alexandra's practice includes Traditional and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, NLP, Psychosynthesis, Gestalt Therapy, Dream Work, and occasionally, Past Life Regression. Her Stop Smoking Program meets the educational requirements for inclusion as a community resource by the SF Dept of Public Health’s Tobacco-Free Project and the 1-800-NO-BUTTS California Smoker’s Helpline for the city of San Francisco.
It is Alexandra's mission to share her life's lessons and studies to help others level-up and transform their lives.

She incorporates their knowledge and philosophies into her Hypnotherapy Practice. An award-winning documentary filmmaker, Alexandra is passionate about exploration and transformation both inward and outward, and has walked the entire Camino de Santiago from France through Spain to Portugal—over 500+ miles. She is known for her documentaries " One Couch at A Time" and "A Path to Abiding Joy.” She loves documenting uplifting and existential topics such as utilizing the sharing economy as a way to live a rich life with little money—the topic of a book she co-authored, "It's a Shareable Life."

Let us know when you’re ready!
We work with both the subconscious and conscious processes so that those deeper changes are taking place but you also have practical strategies to empower you to get results more quickly. The more effort you put in, the more effective the therapy will be.
Hypno-Coaching involves working with the subconscious using Hypnotherapy at the end of every session, as well at conscious mind/ Beta-state support and encouragement where needed between sessions via a phone call or emails, and tasks to complete to help you make the life changes you desire. We also provide Hypnosis mp3 recordings to reinforce the deeper changes between sessions.
You can keep treating the symptoms of your discontent, but the dysfunction—like an infection—may persist until you get to the source. And when you’re suffering from depression, or locked into self-destructive patterns, indecisive, or disconnected from your contentment or purpose, it may feel like an infection. It’s like a virus, eating away at your sense of self until you become connected again.
Hypnotherapy will enable you to access that power in a way that enables positive, lasting behavioral change, leading to the life you’ve only dared to dream of!
