About Shirley

Shirley Davalos is a certified Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist and has been practicing for 17 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has helped clients through weight and smoking issues, brain surgery, writers block, confidence and anxiety issues, chronic pain control, performance and presentation anxiety, and she has assisted clients in creating lifestyle changes that benefit their personal life and recharge their attitude at home and at work.


“Hypnotherapy plays a major roll in supporting optimum health.  It is a relaxing and healing factor for the entire body and mind.  It reliably quiets our constant brain chatter, it creates a space where new perspectives can be recognized and developed.  I assist people and help them use their own tremendous powers of imagination to become architects of their own lives and uncover answers that have been long buried in their subconscious mind. Using hypnotherapy, we can discover a state of mind that we have overlooked. My clients create their own healing I am a guide in their experience.”

With hypnosis leaving the world of New Age kookiness and entering the mainstream hand in hand with western medical practices – more doctors and psychiatrists are waking up to the very real (not magical and spooky) power of hypnosis and guided imagery – Davalos finds herself at the forefront of an empowering field. She is the resident hypnotherapist with The Healing Arts Center at Cavallo Point, the lodge at the golden gate, in Sausalito at the North end of the Golden Gate Bridge.

“Hypnotherapy fits well in the a spa experience,” Davalos says. “We understand how important it is to take care of our bodies, but it’s equally as important to care for our minds. That’s why it’s so exciting to be part of the Healing Arts Center and Spa at Cavallo Point It offers a safe, comfortable place to try new therapies for the body and the mind.

Shirley is available by appointment to clients in the San Francisco Bay Area.
