Live Lightly

Although drastic diets promise spectacular results  in a short time, they usually result in the unhealthy and unhappy yo-yo effect. Hypnosis can help you learn to listen to your own body’s signals, allowing you to control appetite, turn off the cravings, and make sustainable lifestyle changes that will help you maintain your healthy size and shape.

Hypnotherapy provides a practical, engaging approach to weight loss that will inspire you as we work together to target issues that have been keeping you from your goals. A series of launch sessions will equip you to make good on your decision and commitment to shift behaviors around food and exercise, dealing with emotional eating responses, long-term discouragement, and self-sabotage. You’ll receive thorough self-hypnosis training, and tools to retrain your unconscious mind.

Although the sessions are unique for each client, we’re using the time to gather momentum and create sustainable change that feels right for you. As your process of becoming lighter and more comfortable moves forward, we’ll work together to evaluate the need for regular or as-needed refreshers along the way.

Bariatric Surgery Patients: If you have had or are considering bariatric surgery (gastric by-pass or LAP band), hypnosis can equip you to follow your medically-prescribed eating plan with calm control over your food choices.

Weight Loss


Quote2I was worried about finding the right hypnotherapist — but the doubts I had vanished after I started working with Tracy. Now I enjoy eating the right foods in the right amounts. Instead of my use of food as an ineffective stress remedy she gave me the tools to eliminate stress myself. I just got back from my annual check up and my cholesterol is way down and I’ve lost 30 pounds. I’ve got more to lose but I’m not worrying about it at all — it’s just happening naturally.”

Binge Eating


Quote2Tracy is wonderful in all ways. We addressed a compulsive eating disorder I’d had since childhood in just three sessions. It’s been about two  years since we worked together and my life continues to be much happier due to her help.”

Food Choices


Quote2I no longer find myself obsessing about what I eat, when I eat, or the choices I make, and no longer experience that internal bullying and negative self-talk. I find that I am much more confident and in control of how food impacts my personal well being and improved physical appearance. Thank you Tracy for the positive influence you’ve had on changing my life!”


When I decided to try hypnotherapy for weight loss I spent quite a bit of time looking for someone who seemed like a good fit both for my goals and for my personality. I found both those things in Tracy…and more. My first criteria was that I wanted someone who was able to talk about some of the science and biology of the process and didn’t require me to share a belief system or orientation which was not mine. When I read that she also provided hypnotherapy for child birthing, I decided that if the hospitals would let her be there for births, that was a good sign.

Tracy spent quite a while talking to me on the phone before I ever made my first appointment and that turned out to be a good indication of the whole experience. Every session has always taken as long as I needed and I never felt rushed or “on the clock”. The hypnotherapy itself was totally different than I had expected… a lot of different choices and a bunch of fun. The results have been wonderful. It hasn’t been like a magic switch, but a gradual change in behaviors that have resulted in some profound differences. For me, the hypnotherapy helped me with the underlying emotional issues that caused my weight gain in the first place, plus helped create the new behaviors that actually resulted in weight loss. I’m still finding myself shocked when I look I the mirror and see what I look like now. And the different aspects of the therapy have also spilled over into other areas of my life in good ways.

In a nutshell, I’m absolutely crazy about Tracy… not just because of what she has helped me do in my life, but because she’s a warm, generous and fun person. I always feel great when I leave and can’t say enough good things about the experience. And yes… she laughs at my jokes… best hypnotherapist ever!”

It is my pleasure to document and share what my life has become since starting my hypnotherapy with Tracy Adams of Cornerstone Hypnotherapy. . . . The results are so profound and progressive it is hard to articulate this. My life has changed in ALL areas not just the weight loss that I originally sought her support for.

The daily feedback from family, friends and coworkers is amazing and very consistent. The first word people will use is “happy”. That in and of itself is worth all the time and effort. . . . Other great aspects I am enjoying are more confidence, clarity, compassion and self esteem. I have lost in the range of 25 pounds, which came on the heels of trying almost every weight loss option offered out in the world. I am 57 years old and have struggled with weight since my 30s.

I have lost the weight easily and the ultimate modification of what I eat, how much and when is nothing short of a miracle. The foods I now desire are natural, organic and very healthy.  My body truly knows what it naturally needs and with the hypnotherapy I can make conscious healthy choices without much thought. My overall stress level has dropped dramatically . . . . I have a full tool box of options I can draw on whenever I feel the need. The amazing part is I don’t usually even have to consider options -I am guided by what my “authentic” self truly desires and it comes naturally.  I chose to not weigh, count calories, document food intake, etc. This method has proven the most effective and is SO much easier!

I was very sedentary as well and with gentle guidance to begin and maintain “movement” I now walk about 30 minutes every day as well as take advantage of stairs, parking at a distance, etc. I am full of energy, feel positive, encouraged and have a sense of well-being I have never known. . . . For me, my hypnotherapy has facilitated this. In terms of which person to support this — I highly recommend Tracy.  She is an extremely knowledgeable, gentle, talented hypnotherapist, it is with deep gratitude and heartfelt sincerity that I thank her for all the wonderful changes in my life.
