Announcement icon Teletherapy is the preferred modality during COVID-19. In person sessions are also available when clients agree to wear a mask.
Change and growth are hard but regressive change is ultimately harder. My approach to change is integrative: mind, body, spirit, social. My decades of experience enable me to bring objectivity, knowledge, and compassion to our task of uncovering your truth and your path to individual and relational health. As a psychology professor I stay current with new research. I use a diverse set of tools to help you achieve your goals: IFS, CBT, EMDR, trauma-informed therapy, and Neurofeedback. I am a communications expert who uses powerful tools to implement research-backed processes to help your relationships thrive.
Autism/Asperger’s, ADHD, and digital addiction are specialties in my practice. Yet I have successfully applied my approach to many problem areas including: mood disorders, anxiety, and life discernment questions. I work with individuals, couples (including Neurodiverse), and families struggling with these issues.
I provide diagnoses, treatment plans, and accountability. This ensures the effectiveness and efficiency of our work. I would love to help you and your relationships thrive. View my website to learn more and schedule a free phone consultation.

More about this group

Integrated Spirituality Group

Spiritual bypass refers to people who use spiritual ideas and practices to avoid doing the hard psychological work necessary to build an integrated, authentic self. This explains why so many people struggle with religion that over-emphasizes dogma at the expense of psychological health. Yet we need community. Isolated individuals are fragile and struggle to create big change. We must find common ground and purpose with like-minded integrated people. Our group will be a place where "two or three will gather" to support each other in our brokenness and discern our call to live out our journey of faith.
