Having studied extensively at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute in Tarzana, CA as a Certifed
Hypnotherapist and a Certified Master Therapeutic Imagery Facilitator,
Jo Pessin, is a skilled, understanding and patient professional hypnotherapist.whose life passion is
to help other's see their innate beauty and potential in life and to spread goodness into the Universe.
is a primary focus of her work and she is dedicated to helping spread this
amazing way of life to others of all ages.
As a mother of 2 beautiful young children, she has an intrinsic compassion and appreciation for
learning, growing and developing at all stages of life. She has made it her life's mission to support
and foster programs to help our young community and those who are faced with challenging
situations whether by illness or environment.. She has been an active volunteer at her Temple, in
her children's schools, through the Girl Scouts organization as a troop leader for 3 years and has
helped in many local organizations.
Her innate desire to give back to the community has also encouraged others to get involved as
well. This interaction is not only necessary in our world today as we are all connected in our vast
Universe as a whole, but it is beneficial for all those personally involved
on immeasurable levels.
" On a personal note, in addition to enjoying working with people, I was fortunate to inherit the
creative sides of both my parents. My mom received her University degree in Home Economics
(what a fun degree!) I share her love of cooking, baking, sewing, knitting, planting, and anything
crafty. I must have gotten my love of presentation from my dad, who studied architecture. At 83, his
handwritten envelopes are letter perfect.
I have also, always felt a connection with all things vintage- vintage teacups and teapots, photos and
jewelry, anything really. My family teases me that I'm always drawn to anything rickety and showing
it's wear and tear. Perhaps it's because I know it has its own story and the thought of allowing that
journey to continue warms my heart, or perhaps it's because I appreciate it's imperfections and
see them as being perfectly imperfect and ultimately beautiful. It's exciting to re-purpose
found items and give them a new life. Whatever the case may be, I am someone who believes that
if you believe in something; if you are open to the possibilities, even if others are not, then you will
be touched by miracles. It would be my honor to walk along side you as you continue your journey
and discover your true inner self and find what makes your heart truly sing.
Cheers to you with your beautiful glass of goodness-
far fuller beyond anything you can possibly imagine!"
