Lois Yuran Gore MSW, LICSW
Psychotherapy with Spirit, Spiritual Growth for Women in Transition
Lois has a masters degree in clinical social work and is licensed as an independent practitioner of clinical social work in Washington. She has worked for over 25 years as a therapist where her focus has been on supporting women in their journeys toward self-awareness, understanding, and self-acceptance.
The spiritual path has been central in her life. She is a long time meditator, and has, for the past 10 years, been a student of the Diamond Approach®, a spiritual development school that uses modern and ancient methods from the East and West to help students access their True Nature. Her spiritual work has helped her connect with and honor that which is most real in her, and to connect as well with what is true in others.
She deeply values personal growth and has led an “examined life”- as a woman, a daughter, a mother, and a friend. She brings understanding, acceptance, respect and compassion for her own process to her work with other women. Lois has a deep desire to be of service to other women seeking to know and express their truth in the world.

Dulcey believes that our bodies are storage bins for both good and bad history and with the right tools, time and intent, that bin can be emptied, providing relief from pain along the way.
With a strong skill set, her “bag of tricks”, Dulcey utilizes manual techniques such as Muscle Energy, Strain-Counterstrain, Zero Balancing, Somatoemotional Release (SER), as well as Advanced Myofascial Release, from her training at the John Barnes Institute (the founder of MFR).
She has had the honor and privilege of having been personally trained by Osteopath and co-founder of Craniosacral Therapy, the late Dr. John Upledger.
The beauty of Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is its gentle, indirect approach which can be performed on anyone of any age. She also believes that the body has an amazing ability to heal itself, with a little guidance and some education. Each patient is treated with complete confidentiality and with the utmost respect.
As a lifelong athlete, mother of two athletic girls and a cancer survivor, Dulcey believes in treating our bodies like temples, not tents, living each day like it counts, and to laugh!

Practicing hypnotherapy has shown me that people have incredible resources in spite of what they think about themselves. I am constantly amazed at how effective it is and have seen lives change quickly. Hypnosis is commonly associated with quitting smoking and weight loss but in fact, there are endless ways to use hypnosis as a transformative tool. It is known to be helpful with bad habits, past issues, decision making, performance enhancement, overcoming fears, discovering your true self and so much more.
As an artist, my soul naturally dives into what I do. Every person that comes for help is a gift and an opportunity to bring the best out of both of us.
I have traveled and lived in different parts of the world to pursue my dreams and learn from experts in the field. I studied Hypnosis and Neurolinguistic Programing (NLP) in Paris, France at the ARCHE Hypnosis Academy. I had a practice in the south of France and the Caribbean for several years where I enjoyed guiding people to achieve their goals. I recently broadened my knowledge by training in transpersonal hypnotherapy at the Institute of Therapeutic Learnings in Seattle. I’m a registered hypnotherapist with the Washington State Department of Health and a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists.
I was born on a Caribbean island, spending my whole childhood in the ocean doing all kinds of sports like surfing, windsurfing and wakeboarding. I also enjoy playing tennis, hiking and fishing. I have studied and practiced meditation, dreaming and energy work for many years and these disciplines have empowered how I deliver hypnotherapy sessions.
I recently moved back to Washington with my wife and our daughter. The Pacific Northwest has so much to offer and we really enjoy nature’s bounty here. In 2015, I opened Pacific Hypnosis to continue to live the dream and help people connect with their natural and powerful abilities to accomplish their goals and enjoy more their life. If you want to be one of them, I’ll be happy to work with you and I’m looking forward to it.

Reiki Master, Intuitive Energy Healer, EFT Tapping Coach
Alesia is a highly intuitive and naturally gifted healer, with a talent for moving stagnant energy out of the body and energy field of her clients, while holding space for transformation and personal change to occur. She is gentle, loving, and kind; and creates an environment of safety for her clients to experience deep levels of healing and grace. Alesia believes that we are all here to awaken to our divine purpose, to heal aspects of our being that need to be healed, and to expand our consciousness. Our lives provide perfect opportunities for growth, healing and expansion through our interactions with others, and the challenges, as well as blessings, which life brings to us. Alesia’s purpose is to act as a catalyst for transformation and healing through the use of energy healing and Reiki, guided visualizations and reframing, intuitive guidance, EFT Tapping and Coaching, and intuitive artwork.
Alesia was attuned to Reiki by Houman Emami and clairvoyant, Lino Aleyunas, then received her master attunement from world-renown psychic and Energy Intuitive Marie Manuchehri. She has also completed completed a two year mentorship with Marie Manuchehri in Energy Healing. She holds a degree in applied counseling psychology, has been certified in Alchemical Hypnotherapy by Arjuna Ardagh, and she continues to broaden and expand her base of knowledge in the healing arts through seminars, workshops and continued trainings.
What to Expect in a Reiki Session:
Alesia begins each session by placing her hands either directly on or above the client, who lies comfortably on a massage table, fully clothed, while soft music plays. Clients may be covered with a blanket for comfort. During a session, Alesia accesses and transmits Reiki healing energy into the body and energy field of her client, while receiving intuitive information that is specific to each client’s specific needs. Reiki symbols and affirmations (statements of positive intent) are used to enhance the movement of energy. Clients may notice heat, pulsing, a tingling sensation, or a temporary increase in symptoms before they subside. These are all positive signs and mean that the client is responding to the Reiki treatment, and energy is moving. It is not necessary to experience these sensations, however, in order to receive benefit from the Reiki. Occasionally, clients may notice emotions rising to the surface. This is perfectly natural, and means that the client is healing on an emotional level. Clients often go into a very deep “meditative” state while receiving Reiki, and the overall experience is highly relaxing. Following a Reiki session, one can expect to experience peace of mind, a deeper connection to self and feelings of well-being. Since Reiki comes from accessing higher consciousness, whatever arises to be healed, is the perfect thing to arise for healing, and all healing that occurs is in the highest good of the client. After a session, clients often report feeling as though they have been reunited with their “best/true/child” self. If is helpful for clients to give themselves time and space to integrate the healing by staying hydrated, eating healthfully, and avoiding loud or stressful atmospheres. It is best to avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours following a Reiki session.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Also known as Tapping
What is EFT? EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, which involves gently tapping on meridian points while focusing on and voicing a specific issue. Based upon the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over five thousand years, this combination of tapping while addressing issues, has been clinically shown to reduce stress and anxiety, reduce pain, enhance healing, and clear emotional blocks. Change is often rapid and permanent.
We now know that pain and disease are tied to negative emotions, and that negative emotions can exacerbate or prolong pain, long after an injury or trauma has subsided. These negative emotions can also lead to a disruption in our energy field. This circular process can keep individuals in a chronic pattern of pain and/or negativity. Tapping restores balance to the body’s energy system while mending the negative emotions and reducing or eliminating physical and/or emotional symptoms.
Tapping has proven to be highly effective for a wide range of issues, including grief, trauma, addictions, phobias/fears, stress and anxiety, pain, chronic patterns of behavior, and even financial issues. EFT is simple and safe to use, and the benefits are often experienced in just a few minutes.
Clients are given tools to use at home, to help them continue “tapping” on issues and concerns.
Skype sessions and group classes for EFT are available. Please contact Alesia at (425) 442-0785, or firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
