About Melany

Hypnotherapy Los Angeles

“She has the mind of a litigator and the heart of a therapist.”

Melany Cohen, JD, MFT, CHT, is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and certified hypnotherapist. Her own positive experience with hypnosis inspired her to make a life-transforming decision.  She gave up her law career so that she could pursue her true passion to become a healer and motivator.

Melany has worked with clients of all ages.  Some of her areas of expertise include: relief from TMS and chronic pain, smoking cessation, emotional overeating, insomnia, test anxiety, performance enhancement, and confidence building.

Melany’s philosophy is that any learned behavior can be unlearned: “Even the most stubborn behaviors can be unlearned through pattern interruption and by identifying the underlying cause.” She has a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment, incorporating modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, neuro-linguistic programming, guided imagery and mindfulness based stress reduction.
