"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."

"Healing for Addiction, Codependency and those affected by a Narcissist or Sociopath's behavior. I have been doing this work for over 27 years-NOT because I have to, but because I LOVE it. I am as engaged and enthusiastic about how therapy helps people as I was when I started. I have seen many people's lives change dramatically when they are given the education, tools, support and direction to courageously transform limitations into lessons they've needed to "get" but, unconsciously, have kept avoiding. With therapy, what's been bugging you can be faced and embraced."

Common themes include motivation, choice, isolation-connection, uncertainty, and awe. We look with curiosity at what is important to you - your wants and the obstacles that hinder you. Despite the pressures of others and of culture, and the "shoulds" that nag and haunt us, I believe that we move more freely and live more richly when we come to recognize our fears and trust our wants."
