"I believe that a successful therapeutic relationship is based on careful listening and honest feedback. I help clients cultivate authentic relationships in their lives; both with themselves and others. I work collaboratively with clients to identify and achieve their goals by meeting them where they are in the present moment. When you experience being criticized, or feel unimportant, misunderstood, unappreciated or unloved, the fight or flight response is activated, and you instinctually react to protect yourself. "

"Anxiety and depression often signal that something important is going on . . . just beneath the surface. Making sense of this pain, how it's guided you in the past, and its current role in perceiving the world, your place in it, and how to get what you truly desire is at the core of our work. Meeting weekly, or more frequently, therapy provides an environment to help reflect,understand, and grow. My experience and interest encompasses formal diagnoses (abuse history, serious mental illnesses, and trauma) or that less defined, more pervasive sense that something is just a little off."

Everyone is distracted by repeating anxious thoughts that keep us from being at our best. Without endless talk about problems, new brain technology can now open us directly into letting go and being happy. At Echo Rock, we integrate positive psychology, mindfulness, counseling, brain nutrition testing, and passive Low Energy Neurofeedback (LENS). We are immediately effective with anxiety, PTSD, TBI and sports bumps, sleep disorders, ADHD, migraines, memory loss, addictions, medication reduction, as well as enhancing meditation and peak performance."

"I work on two levels. As a Licensed clinical neuropsychologist I treat DSM-5 diagnoses with Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral, and Rogerian client-centered counseling and therapy. I test for mild cognitive impairment and AD/HD. I am board certified in NeuroBiofeedback, and quantitative EEG. Clients develop a more powerful sense of relaxed self-esteem and an effective understanding of how to manage life traumas and stress more effectively. My book "Psychophysiological Medicine and Type A Executive Stress" describes Neurofeedback research outcomes with 30 cardiac patients. In 2015. I published a chapter in "The Encyclopedia of Mental Health 2nd. Edn". (Elsevier) on Neurofeedback and Biofeedback."

"Most of us lug around a suitcase full of our thoughts, feelings, family history and past experiences and have no idea what's in there. Our current responses to and experience of life come from the contents of that suitcase. Together in therapy we gently unpack it. We will see what is working for you, what needs more support and what has served it's purpose but no longer works. I work collaboratively and am curious about all the things that make you who you are. I am particularly interested in working with people who feel misunderstood or unimportant."

"I believe disconnection from ourselves and others is often at the root of suffering. That disconnection is manifested in many ways; an inability to communicate effectively with our partner or child, a creative block or unexpected loss spiraling into depression, or a traumatic experience that leaves us questioning ourselves and afraid of the world around us. I also believe there are times our darkest hours offer us a profound opportunity for transformation and connection to our authentic self.

"I believe that the therapy process is a practice of paying attention to what is actually happening - it sounds simple, but this is actually a deeply profound and challenging stance to maintain towards life. The work we do in therapy involves bringing elements of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, how we relate to ourselves and to others, and how we move through the world, from the darkness of the unconscious into the light of consciousness where we can take a look at them. We do not have to struggle and toil in order to implement change in our lives."
