Listening to clients' struggles, I am reminded how our increasingly complicated world tests daily our capacity to adapt and cope. Relationships encounter myriad of challenges, our identity undergoes major pressures and shifts. Ourselves and our loved ones regularly face crises and upheavals. When feeling overwhelmed, many people seek support as they reach into familiar coping modes, which may no longer be helpful. In this context, therapy may start as a unique form of education and continue as a process of self growth, a journey of profound transformation.

Neurofeedback is a drug-free treatment that allows us to train an individual’s brain to achieve a healthier pattern of functioning. Neurofeedback guides brain functions by measuring brain waves and providing a feedback signal. Electroencephalography (EEG) is recorded during the neurofeedback treatment. Then, its various components are extracted and presented to the patient using a feedback loop in the form of either audio or video feedback. By utilizing the brain’s natural neuroplasticity, we can achieve long-lasting symptom improvement.

Are you tired of feeling frustrated or stuck, unable to move forward because of something painful that happened? Maybe it's memories of childhood abuse, combat, or sexual trauma that keeps you isolated and living in pain. You may have been told by others, or wondered yourself, if the things that happened to you were really "that bad," but no matter how hard you have tried, these memories will not go away. You have also noticed difficulties standing up for yourself in relationships, setting boundaries, or taking chances because of self-doubt and fear. You need a therapist who will believe you, and who understands trauma.

At TruCare TMS, our mission is to help patients regain back their lives, and overcome chronic major depression after failing pharmaceutical options. Our physicians are members of the Clinical TMS Society, trained and certified to conduct Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation treatments, to target major depressive disorder and other mental illnesses, using the most advanced, FDA approved Neurostar TMS. During NeuroStar treatment sessions, we stimulate the mood-controlling area of the brain with a magnet that is similar in strength to an MRI machine. The pulses from the magnet are thought to have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, meaning that long-term remission is possible. Therapy sessions are held at your NeuroStar doctor’s office No anesthetics: You’re awake during your session No downtime: You can go about the rest of your day normally Your memory and sleep will not be affected negatively Most insurance plans offer coverage including Tricare

I welcome feedback throughout our work to ensure we are on the right track and will continue to check in to support you in the best way possible. I use a trauma-focused lens- incorporating biological, social and psychological perspectives.

Peace and quiet, love and laughter. Bonds that unite and relationships that matter. Imagine such a life? Suffering is a part of living but only to a point, not this jagged line tearing you and those you care about apart. Despair lurks in your bedroom at night and at dawn. You awaken to another doomsday. Watching those you love struggle, is struggle for you, too. You smile and try to be helpfully nice, you are trying as best you know how, but nothing is working. No one is listening, no one sees you, or understands. No one is really there for you or for those you love. You are at a dead end and in need of tender care.

My Transformational Life Coaching Mission is to help women evolve. I have witnessed motivated clients making desired self improvements daily. These internal shifts naturally lead to improved relationships and better life circumstances. You too can free yourself from the lies, programming, and conditioned belief systems that have been limiting you. You are holding onto problems that we can release for good. Your life script is easy to rewrite once the negative self limiting influences are gone...at your own pace. Is it time to shed the old ways that are troubling you?

Have you lived through a traumatic experience that you are unable to move past? Are adverse childhood experiences still affecting your present day perceptions? Have you been questioning whether or not you will ever be able to move past the past? These are some of the very issues that I can help you identify and process during our work together. I have spent over 3000 hours helping children, adolescents, and adults move past their childhood and adult traumas. My goal is to help each unique individual move past their past so they may focus on the present and begin to live the very best life.

We all need emotional support because this world can be overwhelming at times. I believe in customized and creative solutions for people. Everyone has a different personality and a unique set of problems, so everyone’s path to healing should be designed differently. I use scientifically proven methods of treatment in a non-judgmental, empathetic way, sometimes sprinkled with a lil humor. I also teach fun psychological tools that can reduce anxiety, trauma and stress reactions.
