"If you or your child has anxiety, ADHD, or depression, you probably feel frustrated and overwhelmed. You want the best for your self and your family and you may have reservations about using medications. You don't have to struggle alone anymore. I want to hear your experience and help you have more harmony in your life and in your home. While talk therapy can be supportive, some issues are brain based and need a different kind of guidance. Neurofeedback is a brain training program that supports you or your child in changing these patterns."

"My passion and speciality is focused around working with teens and their families. My counseling approach is centered on the individual teen and their specific needs. Creating a safe and supportive space for teens to express their struggles, fears, dreams, and passions is my primary goal in treatment. Working with the family in developing healthy communication skills and realistic expectations for their teen is also an important step in the treatment process. Providing a neutral space for teens and their families to communicate their feelings often leads to a better understanding of each others perspectives and a deeper connection."

"I think we've all been there: knowing something needs to change but not sure what to do or which way to go. Difficult times can overwhelm a person. You may feel stuck, and not sure why. Relationships may not be going well, whether with a spouse/partner or friends and coworkers. Often, people find themselves in trouble with substance use, in an unhealthy attempt to cope that just makes things worse. A good way to begin the movement away from the stuck place is therapy. Talking about thoughts and feelings can help make sense of things, and help to clarify old patterns of behavior that aren't working now."

While many clinicians have similar skills to address your concerns, it's actually their personality, life experience, and ability to relate to YOU that determines the success of your therapy. Profile pictures and professional statements are helpful, but the best way to determine if it's a "good fit" is to speak in person!
