I'm really grateful to have found Ava. 4 months ago, when I contacted Ava for the first time I was totally desperate. I called her on the phone and she spent 20 minutes helping me calm down. I had serious anxiety problems and horrible thoughts, which began 4 years ago. She has helped me improve in every possible aspect of my life. From the appreciation for myself to improving  the relationship with my family. All this resulted in me getting an excellent new job, in a healthy company, with a non-toxic work group. Together we have achieved a 180º change in my life. Needless to say, I had to do my part, but the most important thing is that applying her techniques works and each hypnosis session is a new big step ahead!!! Thanks Ava!!! More...

Working with Ava has been life changing for me. Even though I see a therapist weekly, and practice mindfulness, the audition anxiety and low self worth and confidence issues would not go away. We have tackled these issues of mine and I have never felt so confident, worthy and grounded. Of course it takes doing the self work to get to this point, but without Ava's help with coping strategies and reprogramming my sub conscious, I would not be where I am now. More...

I was dealing with morning anxiety upon waking every day for about 3 years when my work changed. I had spent time meditating, changing my diet, taking supplements and although all of those healthy tools helped take a layer off the intensity (I will still continue with them), my anxiety was still substantial and I knew that there had to be a subconscious issue that wasn't resolving even with all the work I did. I found Ava on Yelp and decided to give it a shot since I had good results in the past with hypnotherapy for other life issues. Within one visit I noticed a significant change in my morning anxiety! It went from an 8 to a 2 in just one visit. She used a combo of hypnotherapy, deep breathing and tapping for me and it made all the difference! I did a follow up visit to anchor the results a little better and after that 2nd visit I was feeling so much better that I decided to move on other issues I was dealing with. I saw Ava for eight or nine sessions and it was a really helpful experience- I am forever grateful! I like that she gives you a recording of each session so you can listen to it several times in between visits to get best results. Thank you Ava! More...

I had gone to sliding scale counselors and hourly paid therapist traveling all the way to Los Angeles on the bus with no results. I had gone to so many therapist and counselors to seek help for my severe anxiety, bouts of depression and low self esteem which was a product of my upbringing from my childhood. I am sharing this with complete honesty and utmost sincerity Ava was the only person who was able to really break through and give me real results with the techniques and the tools she taught me. I am very grateful for finally finding someone who has been able to help me with debilitating conditions that I had been dealing with for so long and was feeling hopeless thinking that I would just have to accept and live my life with everything I had been conditioned with. A friend had once told me when I talked to her about the things I struggle with that that is just part of my personality and character. I refused to believe that. Ava has a true passion for helping people with a genuine and caring heart. More...

I had gone to sliding scale counselors and hourly paid therapist traveling all the way to Los Angeles on the bus when theTherapist I was traveling to get help from needed help himself. Always no results I had gone to so many therapist and counselors to seek help for my severe anxiety, bouts of depression and low self esteem which was a product of my upbringing from my childhood. I am sharing this with complete honesty and utmost sincerity Ava was the only person who was able to really break through and give me real results with the techniques and the tools she taught me from just a the few first sessions.

Ava has become one of my favorite teachers/therapists I've ever had. Originally I went to Ava for anxiety, but we have tackled so many other things in addition. Her work has helped me tremendously in all areas of my life. She's given me countless tools to use on my own as well as her recordings to listen to when I'm not coming into her office. I can't recommend her enough. THANK YOU Ava! More...

My therapy from Ava for issues with food has been incredible! My sessions are on Facetime from out of state, so I can relax and get the full benefit with no distractions- right from the comfort of my own home. I highly recommend Ava for fast results and lasting life changes. More...

I went to Ava to help with some anxiety that was coming up in my acting career. I had recently closed a show where there was emotional abuse and it caused me to make mistakes in my closing performance I had never made before and it unnerved me. I was in rehearsal for a new show that was the most demanding role to date. Very hard dialogue and character and I had to drive it. To say I had some anxiety is an understatement. Ava was right with me and tailored hypnosis sessions to up my confidence and enjoyment of my journey. She also taught me tapping, which brought me tremendous relief. I had spent 23 years in the Cult of Scientology so I was very leery about hypnotherapy and now I understand how much more beneficial it is than anything I've done before. She also was so wonderful in scheduling appointments when I was super stressed. I got through the show with flying colors and learned how strong I truly am. I learned that regardless of the anxiety I may feel before going on, if I listen to her recordings and let them work their gifts, I am going to be just fine out there. More than fine, according to reviews and audience comments, I was GREAT. Not to sound arrogant, but just relaying what was said and written about my work. Thank you, Ava, from the bottom of my heart!

Hands down for Ava. Words can’t express how much she’s helped me and guided me. Ava really cares for your well being. I mean words can’t describe how helpful and understandable she is. This is isn’t a business this a women who truly knows the matter of life and wants to help others. She’s a phone call away or she will do anything in the world to squeeze me in for an appointment. I am still a work in progress, but I know Ava has been part of the progress I’ve made! With that said I drive on the freeway now after two years. More...

I can't say enough about the peace that I feel after being given the tools Ava Evans has given me. Diagnosed with Graves' disease the disease naturally causes anxiety. Utilizing the meditation tape that Ava made for me I feel calmer & in control. Living in Rhode Island, I've been consulting with her long distance via FaceTime. I find her to be an effective & efficient coach, as well as listener. Don't hesitate to call her. More...

I went to Ava for recurring panic attacks that began around March. I suffered through them for a couple of months and by the time I got to Ava I had about 14 in a 48h period. I had been to the emergency room and to the acupuncturist and after just three sessions my panic attacks were completely gone. Ava records your session so you can listen to it at home and that has been vital. I have a sleep hypnosis that puts me out like a light.  I can't recommend her more highly. This works and if you suffer from anxiety and panic attacks, I URGE you to go to her for treatment. More...

Today marks five months since my last cigarette, and it's truly all thanks to Ava. While I was admittedly skeptical at first, a dear friend and lifelong chainsmoker saw Ava for smoking cessation and successfully has gone about two years without smoking. Once my friend did it, I was convinced. Here I am five months later having had nary a puff. While I can't fully explain how the hypnotherapy works, I can vouch for its effectiveness and am forever grateful to Ava!! More...

I saw Ava for smoking cessation at the end of May. I have smoked for the better part of 20 years. It has now been almost 6 weeks and I have not even had so much as a puff of a cigarette. I am thrilled to be a permanent non smoker and am grateful to have received Ava's assistance! Thank you, Ava More...

Ava is fantastic and I would recommend her to EVERYONE!! She has helped me get through all of my stress and anxiety with work, wedding planning, the crazy daily life I live and much more. She is kind, thoughtful, has excellent advise and really knows how to put things into perspective. I look forward to my appointments with Ava and highly suggest you make an appointment too!!

When I first met with Ava I had recently hit ‘rock bottom’ in terms of my weight issues and was really in need of getting to the core of the problem and working on a way out of my rut. Early on it was obvious that Ava understood where I was in my life, my goals and my problems and she quickly became someone in which I could easily confide. Because she lives her own health-conscious life I felt like she was the right person to help me through that tough time and she did just that. At the time of my writing this I have been able to overcome many of the issues that kept me out of control and I am healthier, happier and over 40 lbs. lighter for it More...

Ava has been helping me with pain and anxiety caused from childhood trauma and a partial seizure disorder I have called dystonia. I immediately started feeling better after the first session. I no longer have light and sound sensitivity and life is getting easier and I am so much more relaxed. Ava is wonderful to work with. More...

Ava was truly a godsend to me and my son!  He is almost 7 and has struggled his entire life with his bowel movements and withholding issues.  This resulted in years of numerous trips to a gastroenterologist, a psychiatrist, many unpleasant accidents and ultimately a lot of heartache for the whole family.  I tried everything and NOTHING worked.After seeing Ava, he literally changed OVERNIGHT.  I am overwhelmed with gratitude and happiness, and my son is a new child.  This nightmare has finally been put behind us.  I highly recommend Ava as she is not only very caring and attentive, but extremely skilled at hypnotherapy.

Ava was referred to me by my co-worker . At first I was skeptical going to a hypnotherapist, but after talking to Ava over the phone, I felt ok to start hypnotherapy. One thing, I liked about Ava, while I was with Ava, I never felt judged. I felt relaxed. She helped me because I was having frequent panic and fear attacks. Now after 4 sessions with Ava 2 days a week. The hypnotherapy treatments sessions with her have lessened my panic attacks. Thank you Ava. More...

Ava Evans is amazing!! A friend of mine recommended her to help treat my stress and anxiety. I had never done any type of hypnotherapy before but boy was I pleasantly surprised. Ava made me feel so comfortable, set me up with the proper tools to cope with my stress and is all-in-all great therapist to work with. I now live stress free and most importantly have the tools I need to manage it when stressful times come about - as they do at times! I highly recommend Ava and have referred her to many friends that are all happy clients. More...

I originally started seeing Ava to help with severe teeth grinding. I had gone through a traumatic experience while finishing law school so I was extremely stressed but keeping everything under control and apparently taking it all out on my teeth.  When I started, I could never have imagined the various ways she would help me change my life.  She not only helped me with my teeth grinding, but I also stopped biting my nails, learned to work through the traumatic event, sleep better, and be more comfortable with myself.  The biggest change  happened when Ava taught me about mindfulness. I have now been seeing Ava for over a year and I can honestly say that my life is more fulfilled, my anxiety is less and I am happy, genuinely happy.  I still have my moments, but the tools that Ava gave me have helped me help myself. In addition, I sent my husband to Ava to help him kick a bad habit. He smoked on and off for the past 15 years, and he needed help, but nothing was working.  Finally I convinced him to go to Ava, and after just two sessions for smoking cessation, I am thrilled that he has been smoke free for almost a year.

When I found out I had placenta previa and needed to deliver with a c-section immediately within 2 weeks, I freaked out. I've carried anxiety about anything dealing with blood or surgery since I was a little girl, and I knew I needed to act fast to help me ease my fears before my big day. I contacted Ava after reading up on her reviews and I couldn't be happier with my sessions! She worked with me on my rushed and last minute time table to squeeze in 2 sessions. After the first visit, I immediately felt my anxieties peeling away...and after the second session with EFT, I felt I was well equipped to face one of my biggest fears: surgery! I'm so happy I found her and can't thank her enough for giving me the tools to make my c-section a rather calm experience! More...

Lately, I have been dealing with insomnia. I felt that medication was totally unnecessary for my situation . I decided it was time for me to seek for help so I found Ava Evans for hypnotherapy and my insomnia has been decreasing ever since. She's patient and knows what it takes to tap into your consciousness. You have to allow your self to be mentally open to the challenge. For hypnotherapy Los Angeles, I would recommend her to anyone around the area. She truly cares about helping her clients become healthy once again so they can live a better life. More...

I went to Ava after seeing her reviews on Yelp. I was having trouble sleeping, and it was affecting my work and personal life immensely. After one very relaxing session I was sleeping better, and even learned a few tips on how to live a healthier life in general. My work and personal life improved a lot, and I have only Ava to thank for that. I can never repay Ava for how much my life has improved because of her! Thank you! More...

I went to Ava after another sleepless night. I was having constant panic attacks, all day fear, and I didn't even recognize myself anymore. Ava is incredible patient and kind, she really listens to you and addresses your issues. I felt safe talking to ava about all of m anxieties even though I felt some of them were silly. I never felt judged and I was always given an answer to my issues. Ava helped me with so many things, she also taught me a lot about healthy living. This was much more than just therapy and it really changed my life. I am so grateful to Ava for everything she's done for me and I highly recommend her. More...

Ava is truly amazing professional and made such an incredible difference within my life. I was looking for a hypnotherapist and came across Ms Ava and Im so glad I did. She has led me to a large number of realizations even before the hypnosis section of our sessions. Within a country where so many just grab the next pill, I wish we're able to have a few thousand more Ava Evans who can do hypnotherapy for patients seeking treatment. Life can be so much better. I recommend her and thank her a million times over. More...

I had the absolute best experience of my life with Ava Evans. We did a past life regression and were able to find out why I deal with anxiety, stomach pain, and where I get my musical/art talents from. Throughout the entire session, she was able to keep the environment extremely calm while getting the answers I needed. I've done a lot in my life like touring with bands and acting, but the past life regression she performed on me tops anything I've ever done. After our session, I did some detailed research on my past musical life and was able to find myself on the internet! It is something I'll remember on and think about for the rest of my life. Thank you Ava, you've earned yourself another loyal client! -Grant B. More...

I've been working with Ava via Skype & it has been a transformative experience! Tapping with Ava is VERY powerful, her wisdom, insight & knowledge of the human condition is something she has a firm hold on. If you need help getting your record out of that same old groove or looking to free yourself of a pattern that is not serving you whether it be a mental or physical habit...... I would highly recommend Ava Evans. More...

I was experiencing Horrible long panic attacks everyday. A few times I went to urgent care and the emergency room ($$$$) because I thought I was going to die. I tried antidepressants but they made me feel very sedated and I could not function at work, so I stop taking them. I did not like the idea on depending on a drug to make my life better. A friend told me about Ava, and about how much Ava had helped her. Since day 1 of Ava's session and information on what my panic attacks were and how to deal with them, I have not had those horrible long lasting attacks. Ava has teach me how to deal and get rid of my panic attacks when they come to me. I can STOP them now :)I strongly recommend her, she is a life saver. I am back to being a normal person and that is a great blessing to me. Now I know that a prescription drug is not enough to deal with panic attacks, we have to learn the proper tools to deal with them internally. I also have to say that Ava is very caring of her patients, she takes the time to listen and gives you all the information that you need to have a positive and healthy life. More...

I went to Ava to quit smoking.  I smoked for about 10 years and then quit smoking because my husband and I wanted to have children.  When the kids all left, I started playing with cigarettes a little, especially when I drank.  The next thing I knew, I was full on smoking a pack a day, like I had never quit.  I have a friend who went to Ava to curb her drinking.  She had amazing results with just a treatment or two.  I got Ava's number from her because I thought I SHOULD quit smoking, although I didn't really want to.  It took me a long time to make the call but finally I did.  Ava explained her smoking cessation program to me but I didn't feel ready so I didn't book an appointment at that time.  After a few weeks, I realized that I was probably never going to feel ready so I decided to just go for it!  I made an appointment where we talked for a long time and then she hypnotized me.  I was a little uncomfortable at first but I settled in and just went with it.  Cut to the chase, it's been 2 months and I haven't had a cigarette.  At first it was easy because finally, I was kind of excited about quitting.  After a few days, I would sometimes feel a little urge to smoke but it passed within a minute or 2.  I would still call that easy.  The urges started becoming further and further apart.  Now, I rarely think about smoking.  Anyone who smokes knows how extremely difficult it is to quit.  Being hypnotized made it ...  I would go as far as to say EASY!   To me, that's AMAZING!!!  Oh and I didn't mention, this was with just one appointment.  I highly recommend Ava and feel so relieved to have quit smoking.  I feel great!!!

Ava is amazing!  I booked my hypnotherapy sessions during a visit to California and it was the best thing I did for myself in many many years.  Right after the first session I felt an amazing amount of inner peace, self acceptance and balance.  In addition to the extremely effective hypnotherapy, Ava's character brings so much to the experience.  She is compassionate caring and patient.  She worked through my issue exploring possible causes and leading me to better understand who I am and why I felt the way I did.  At the end of the session she emails a voice recording of the hypnotherapy, I listen to it from time to time and it helps maintain the inner peace and balance.  Ava changed the way I see myself and experience the world around me.  I highly recommend her and I am definably seeing her again the next time I am in CA.

I truly had no idea what to expect with this type of therapy, but I was willing to give it a shot. Ava is great, she is patient and a kind hearted person. I was a little nervous and a bit skeptical  but willing, after explaining the process we had the first session, afterwords I have never been so relaxed in my life. I can best describe it in geeks terms as reprogramming the subconscious. Much like an anti-virus for my brain.As the sessions continued the better I got at attaining an relaxed state, it felt much like a perfect guided meditation but I truly do not know the science or technique's   used. For me it was a very effective treatment and faster then any other treatment I was researching I would highly recommend it. Ava also has a wealth of knowledge on various treatments and books, all of which she shared with me was very helpful.I would highly recommend Ava Evans to friends and family. More...

Everybody made fun of me when I went to Ava for teeth grinding and insomnia issues. Nobody was laughing a few months later when I had not only started sleeping through the night and stopped grinding my teeth, but had also lost 15+ lbs, and am still losing.People need to tell you how they "can't be hypnotized", or "that would never work for me", or "be careful", when you tell them you're going for hypnotherapy. Their ideas are all based on misconceptions about HT, and have nothing to do with the reality.  I absolutely loved every single session, and found it the single most relaxing experience of my life. I felt so relaxed and stress-free after my first session - like a new person - so calm.Ava also helped me work on some past issues that were contributing to the insomnia, grinding, weight gain, and helped me move forward in areas I was stuck in a rut.I'll go back periodically for refreshers, or when other issues come up. Definitely recommended. More...
