"Its that time of year when change is in the air"


Testimonials - Just a sign that you can too!

"Joe has a special energy that allows the person in front of him to feel the truth of who they are, better yet, the potential within them begins to show up. Tying in both scientific and spiritual techniques Joe has a way of cutting through to what is most important and clears away of the blocks one may be experiencing. To top it all off he is one kind human being." Management Consultant.

"You came to mind and have been because you have helped in opening my eyes in putting my best foot forward and with the strength of the Lord that he can turn my life around with faith. I have recognized the possibilities with a different attitude, and with that I want to thank you again and let you know that you made a difference in my life! I see you around from time to time and you ask me, “Where have you been?” I gave it some thought and my answer now is I am making things happen. Certain situations come about in life and it’s up to us to pick ourselves up again. I am still reading some books you have recommended, and they continue to help. I hope that you are doing well physically and spiritually. Please keep in mind that you have a special gift that enlightens people’s lives, and thru the source I was directed into your path to touch my life, with that I can’t express my gratitude enough, because you did just that!"

"The work that I have done with Joe Torcicolla has helped me to move my life forward tremendously. I have experienced a profound movement of energy in the work that I have done with him and have had a lot of clarity come in the area of my life that I have been working on: work and career. Joe works with great ease and confidence and I find the process through which he works to be both fun and enlightening. Simply put, of all the experience that I have had with hypnosis and of all the dozens of hypnotists I have known and worked with, Joe has a extraordinary gift--a talent for helping people to tap into their own souls--their own truth--and release whatever has been blocking that truth from manifesting in their lives. He works with an intuition and with a level of confidence that is rare in his profession. I look forward to working with him much more in the future and feel very confident that with his skill and guidance, I can continue to move forward in my life, creating what it is I want to create and that, as Joe has said in many different ways, there is no limit but the limits we choose"


"Joe is an incredibly passionate counselor as well as just an all around amazing human being. I've dealt with a number of counselors through out the years and Joe is hands down one of the warmest and most welcoming therapist I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Every time I've walked into his office I always had an instant sense of comfort. It was hard to leave his office with out a feeling of hope and a smile. He has a wide range of therapeutic approaches which I found to be extremely beneficial. You can tell he genuinely cares for his clients and will do everything in his power to help them. Joe has greatly impacted my life. His advice, his comforting demeanor and the lessons I've learned from him are things I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for everything you do Joe."

Addictions Counselor

Definitely one of the most caring and compassionate human beings I know. As a  Healer, Joe brings many skills to his craft. He cares about achieving the desired outcome for the client. His knowledge combined with his talent makes for a productive and illuminating experience. He was extremely helpful to me in" seeing the forest, instead of just the trees".

Minister/Spiritual Counselor

"Joe is a very gifted, one-of-a-kind counselor. It's refreshing to work with someone who embraces the spiritual yet takes a grounded and pragmatic approach in this work."  

Child Educator and Musician

Working with Joe as my counselor is unlike any other counseling experience I've ever had. His patient and peaceful approach to discussing things always makes me feel very supported. And with his extra-sensory/intuitive gifts, he gives me guidance and insight that I can't see for myself. 

His compassion and sense of humor also really help when I'm working through dark moments and difficult issues. 

I like to think that with every session I have with Joe, I'm growing as a person. 

I recommend Joe wholeheartedly to anyone seeking counseling and insight.

Marketing Professional

"Where Can I begin?
The world you’ve opened me up to has served as a spiritual awakening and another outlet to heal from my own history. Our conversations have provided with such a gift of love and child like wonder. I am especially grateful for your
guidance and lessons on what my profession really means: we are healers and can be healing not from a place of fear but a place of love. On my personal journey, I have been pursuing love for others, so this whole experience has gotten me closer to that goal. Thank you for all that you have taught me and shared with me."

Social Worker

Recently I came to Joe myself as a client with a severe panic that had emerged.  The problem was  ameliorated immediately. What a gift. 
Joe has extensive expertise in so many areas, including addictions, phobias, habits, smoking, depression, anxiety,
long and short term therapies and trauma.  Joe's special talent is his relatedness, truth and rapport with his clients
and working with the higher purpose of the problems they bring. I highly recommend making Joe part of your mental health and general well-being support system.

Note: Not all therapy works for all individuals. Difficult topics may be covered in therapy and may prove uncomfortable at times. Prior positive results  by others do not guarantee individual success. 


Relationships - The opportunity

All relations are sacred in that they are designed to bring us a message. The path to enlightenment is through the mirror our relationships provide.  Sometimes it just doesn't seem that way.  When working on relationships, you’ll learn about how to create boundaries and acceptance, and use relationships to bring about happiness in your life.
