About Me


BRACHA ORIANA FISHMAN - a NYS Licensed RN (Registered Nurse) since 2014 and a hypnotherapist who maintains a private practice in Brooklyn, NY and provides mental health counseling, specializing in treatment with individuals (adolescents, and adults) to address treatment from a wholistic perspective - body, mind, and spirt. 

Bracha Oriana Fishman combines a unique set of techniques and modalities, tailored to each individual uniquely, to provide the most optimal environment in which clients undergo positive change, healing, empowerment, and transformation.  The mental health counseling services I am able to provide includes an array of the counseling techniques from SFBT, or Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, CBT, or cognitive behavioral therapy, the RTT Hypnotherapy technique by Marisa Peer, the Krasner hypnotherapy method, energy medicine, meditations & fantasmic envisaging, & other wellness techniques such as sound therapy and aromatherapy, to create an optimal state and environment for you within which positive changes are fostered.  The belief upon which the practice is founded is that every human has an inherent ability and natural desire to bring about positive, lasting change in countless very unique, very individual ways, and has the ability to create unique and personal solutions to challenges.  Hypnotherapy is also applied and geared at directing us to the subconscious parts of our mind, memory and past, where very key beliefs and ideas are formed that greatly affect how we live our lives in the present, while the SFBT approach places the power within the client's hands and ensures that the focus remains on the client's desired outcome.  Surrounding all of these beliefs is the foundational belief that we all arose from, and are all connected to, a Divine source that is encouraging our constant growth and transformation towards our highest and greatest selves.  Bracha Oriana Fishman identifies as a life-long learner, a healer, and an avid practitioner of mindfulness & Mahayana meditation practices (now 17 years). 

May all successes, accomplishments and achievements be dedicated to the One who is the Source of all knowledge and wisdom, the Creator, The Divine Light feeding our spirit with the potential for healing, restoration and transformation, and without whom we could not be doing that which He has called upon us to do. 

My Background


For those of you looking to get a bit more background information on me and my past experience and qualifications, allow me to introduce myself.  I am, as mentioned above, a NYS Registered Nurse Hypnotherapist, mother, student, lifelong learner - to name a few.  I chose to pursue mental health and incorporate hypnotherapy after practicing nursing for several years because I was compelled to use the powerful tools and skills I had gained through my own experiences and challenges in order to help others achieve freedom and personal accomplishment in a greater way that goes beyond physical health.  

Faith & prayer are a big part of my identity and I believe in a Higher Power, a Universal Creator that I call G-D, and I am of the Judaeo-Christian background though I am not a religious person.  Please know that although I personally rely on faith, this does not affect my practice as a nurse or hypnotherapist, and I freely counsel people of any faith, little faith, or no faith, any religion, any race, any sexual orientation or identity.   

I immigrated to the US with my family in 1988 and have since lived in the US and Israel.  I speak Russian, Hebrew and some minimal conversational Spanish.  I incorporate various Jewish, Christian, Asian and Mahayana Buddhist practices & prayers into my daily routine and life-view, and unequivocally believe in and rely on meditation & prayers as a means and a source of connecting to a Higher Power, of gaining self-awareness, infusing life with wisdom, living with patient acceptance, maintaining balance, and gaining increased emotional and spiritual health and well-being.  I have lived through multiple relocations and immigration, experienced & overcome countless traumas, which include the tragic murder of my 19 year-old brother, the death of a father after a brutal, but quick, bout with lung cancer, the dissolution of a family related to substance use, childhood abuse, and dysfunctional family relationships and lifestyle habits.  I have also witnessed the devastation caused by addictions - those of body and mind - and been privvy to learn of the effects of wrong mindsets and false beliefs firsthand.  

I am most blessed in that I am able to say that, through all that life has presented me with, I have been fortunate enough to transform challenging experiences into incredible growth, and to gain immense and invaluable insight and wisdom.  Those experiences that could have destroyed me, I have been able to use for development and am eager and excited to apply what I have learned to help you achieve your goals of fulfillment, freedom, personal growth and development.  

I am a firm believer that life is an unending series of choices, that we are meant to be perfectly imperfect, unique and in a constant and continuous state of "work-in-progress."  I believe that with the right guidance, a bit of hope and faith and the right insight, each of us can find a way by which we achieve our goals - our goals for freedom, fulfillment, self-improvement and empowerment - despite our challenges.  That is, achieve our goals despite the family we grew up in, the dysfunction we saw as a child, the obstacles and challenges.  In fact, I believe in my heart of hearts that the same Force, the same Creator that brought each of us here, is having you read these words and is ready and available to provide you with all you will need on your journey.  My life is, and continues to be, a living depiction of the incredible powers of Universal Kindness, Mercy, Grace and Love.
