Hypnotherapy is a natural state of relaxation where the mind is calm, and focused concentration is maintained. It is an educational and self-improvement process that facilitates access and assists clients in solving problems, increasing motivation, or altering negative thoughts, beliefs, and behavior patterns to create positive change.


Integral Hypnotherapy is a complete hypnotherapy program. It integrates traditional hypnotherapy protocols with contemporary techniques. It is the only hypnotherapy process that has been scientifically validated by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded research. 


Each tele-session varies according to your goals and specific needs. Together, we will evaluate these considerations and I will utilize a combination of techniques Higher Self Hypnotherapy specializes in. My method is to use the best tool at the right time.

After retiring from a twenty-year career as an Emmy Award Winning Creative Director and Producer for commercials, television, and feature films, I became disabled with a rare autoimmune disease. After having lost everything, I eventually had to be taken care of fulltime. With a powerful shift in my thoughts, self-perception and the world around me, my condition began to slowly improve. I am now in complete remission.

Hypnotherapy had helped me greatly with many issues in the past.
After my illness of fourteen years and subsequent remission, I began to embrace the power of the mind and focused on self-healing. I eventually, studied at the prestigious Hypnotherapy Academy of America (HAA). I am a Certified Clinical and Medical Support Hypnotherapist, in addition to being a Fellow of the International Board of Hypnotherapy (IBH). IBH has the most stringent requirements for certification and regulates and maintains the strictest level of professional training and ethics in the hypnotherapy community.     


I have the benefit of having a previous friendship with Gary but with that being said I had no prior experience with hypnosis let alone medical hypnosis. I was at a time in my life when my illness made it very difficult for me to relax physically or mentally. Gary was not only able to very quickly put my mind at ease but guide me to a place where I could confront my illness and start charting a path forward. If I were to speak to what I feel makes our sessions work, it would be Gary’s ability to listen, empathize and then design a session around my specific needs. It feels like a very intuitive and organic process with him and I mean that in the best way possible.

I met Gary when I was at a difficult crossroads and with each tailor-made session, he brought me through a very difficult time. In just one session he was able to change some of the habits that were troubling me in just a few days. Gary’s very intuitive and creates each session to benefit your mental and physical health and does it with a gentleness and thoughtfulness that really makes hypnotherapy work for the long term.

As someone who had never experienced hypnotherapy, I found it to be extremely beneficial in helping me overcome negative self-talk and lack of self-confidence. It even helped me get in touch with and heal some physical pain. Gary Naccarato is a very empathetic, non-judgmental and professional hypnotherapist. He creates a safe space for healing and genuinely cares about his clients and helping them reach their goals.

Intrigued. Skeptical. Hesitant. Excited. Just a few words that popped into my head before my Hypnotherapy consultation with Mr. Naccarato. After our first session, I was sold. Every session since, a new breakthrough occurs. The positive reinforcement seems to be incredible. I cannot recommend hypnotherapy more.  Imagine, sense, and feel… and know that your psyche is safe in Gary Naccarato’s hands. You are deserving.


- Robert S., Los Angeles, CA (2022) 

Let me start by saying I had never undergone hypnotherapy before this, and like many things in life, you get out of it what you're willing to put in. Having struggled with anxiety and addictive behaviors for several years, I was having a lot of difficulty in my day to day and watching many unrealized moments of inner peace with myself and those around me pass me by. Right away, Gary had this unique ability to center in and work with me to verbalize my goals and provide me access to a place in my mind I had forgotten existed.


Through several sessions and a masterful process, I can now interact with my mind state in a healing, healthy, and positive manner. It's like being given back another chance at a more meaningful life. All I had to do was take it. I'm grateful beyond measure for this experience and would, without the slightest hesitation, highly recommend Gary's expertise to literally anyone wanting growth at any level.

Working with Gary is a heart and soul opening experience. The atmosphere he creates is safe, warm and positive. His approach is sensitive, intelligent, practical and results driven. So thank you Gary for improving my life!
