Pattie Freeman assists her clients in changing their lives and achieving their goals from her office in the Palisades—and she does it through hypnotherapy.
Born and raised in Chicago, Freeman graduated from DePaul University with a BA in psychology. She moved to Arizona, divorced and became a single mom.
“I raised my son and moved to Scottsdale to open up my practice in 2000,” Freeman explained “Since then, I continued my education.”
Freeman is a Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Certified Instructor and NESTA Sports Mental Mind Coach.
“I am known as the ‘mental guru’ for my level of expertise in the field of hypnosis,” she shared.
Freeman, who worked out of Scottsdale and Beverly Hills, was inspired to bring her talents to the Palisades in October 2019 when a client urged her to do so.
Freeman works out of an office in the Noelle Rox Pilates studio, working with clients typically on the weekends and by appointment. She is currently offering remote sessions, via phone calls, FaceTime and Skype.
Freeman explained that the first session with consultation runs about 90 minutes.
“The consultation is free because I want to make sure we both fit and feel comfortable with one another,” Freeman said. “When the consultation is over, we decide what the plan is and go from there.”
Freeman tackles a wide variety of topics with her clients, from addiction to body image, depression, relationships and more.
“Anxiety is on the rise more than I have ever seen, especially in younger adults,” Freeman shared. “I teach them how to handle situations so the anxiety will become less with no medication.”
She also can assist clients with fears and phobias, including flying, heights, bugs, snakes and more.
“Whatever it is they’re dealing with, it’s consistent in their life and we have to break the pattern with hypnosis,” Freeman explained.
Freeman added that she has kept track of her clients and has seen that she has an effective rate of 97% with most of the issues that her clients face.
“The only way that hypnotherapy would not work for my client is because they’re not willing to change or they’re not facing what they need to face in order for it to improve their life,” she said.
Freeman was featured on the show “To Tell the Truth,” where she worked with host Anthony Anderson’s mother, Doris Hancox.
“It was a live audience so whatever I was going to do with Mama Doris, it had to take the very first time because the audience was live,” Freeman recalled. “Sherrie Shepherd in the background was so amazed her mouth dropped open—we couldn’t do that again if it was a retake.”
Freeman added that it was a fantastic opportunity for her to show the world what she does and how hypnotherapy can be used effectively for anything in your life.
“I’m always available by phone for sessions or consultations,” Freeman concluded.
Freeman’s office is located at 860 Via De La Paz in Suite C3. For more information, call 310-927-2122 or visit elitehypnotist.com.
