He is married with two children in medical studies and his wife, Sara Pulath-Witt, a graduate of the Amala Medical Institute of Kerala, India, assists in the management of SHC. Together, they strive to bring together the best of US, European, and Asian hypnotherapy practice.

Clients sometimes ask what type of hypnotherapy is practiced at SHC. While it is a somewhat technical question, the approach of the late, great therapist, Milton Erickson, MD, has influenced Dr. Witt, as it has leading practitioners throughout the world.
