My great passion is to help others improve and enhance their lives by teaching them how to manage daily stressors, heal from trauma, and promote physical, emotional, and mental health and well being.

Through my practice as a hypnotherapist, I have been able to help clients improve self-awareness and intuition, become confident in challenging relationships and situations, put an end to unhealthy habits, reduce and manage pain, improve sleep quality, and gain confidence.

With hypnotherapy, issues that live in the subconscious mind can be accessed and addressed with rapid and effective results. In some cases, traditional psychotherapy can be paired with hypnotherapy to achieve even greater success and peace of mind. The two modalities are highly complementary and often go hand in hand.

My training as a medical support hypnotherapist allows me to work with clients who wish to use alternative medicine (in conjunction with conventional medicine) to manage pain and enhance their response to treatment. Studies have shown that hypnotherapy can reduce certain side effects of medication, minimize postoperative pain, and reduce complications and recovery time. Even one session of hypnosis before surgery can have a significant effect on a patient’s overall recovery.

My 400-hour clinical training and 100-hour medical training took place at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America located in Albuquerque, NM. I am a certified clinical hypnotherapist, a clinical medical support hypnotherapist, an autogenic trainer, and a fellow of the International Board of Hypnotherapy.

Clients are generally seen for one to six sessions, depending on the nature of the issue being addressed. Clients can be individuals, families, or groups; business and corporate training are also available and can be tailored to the needs of the company.

I look forward to working with you and discussing the particular way hypnotherapy can enhance your physical and emotional well being safely and naturally.

Stacey Prefontaine provides therapy to adults in the Grand Rapids area and is available for distance appointments as well.

Client Testimonial:

I’ve worked with Stacey on two different issues now-both times having left her office with an  overwhelming sense of positivity, calm, and resolve. The tips and tools shared in our sessions are with me every day-available to coach me through a stressful situation or guide me to make healthy choices. Sounds cool, right? It is! I tell everyone about my experience and recommend they go visit Stacey-even if it’s just to clear their head.
Time well spent!
