I understand the lived experience. I grew up the daughter of a nurse who cared for critically ill patients, terminally ill patients, as well as psychiatric patients. Some of my family members have struggled and continue to struggle with mental illness, so early on, I developed an empathetic listening style that made others feel heard.

New Patients Welcome!! SEROTONIN is the “happy” brain chemical that improves mood and relaxation. DOPAMINE and NORADRENALINE are “feel-good” neurotransmitters to increase energy and motivation. GABA is the “cool” neurotransmitter, calming you down. ADRENALINE is a “motivator,” and ACETYLCHOLINE enhances memory and alertness. When neurotransmitters are out of balance, you’ll feel moody and unmotivated and your sleep and appetite may go up or down. If you’ve tried to treat this through diet, exercise, or positive self-talk, without success, that's where I can help! I work with adolescents and adults of all ages.
