"There are times where we either see ourselves or our children struggling, and we are left feeling like we don't know where to turn for answers or help. This is where psychological testing can be a great resource for getting answers, determining needs, and gaining recommendations for future support. Whether it is a child that just "doesn't fit" in a classroom setting or an adult that has found certain work or social environments challenging- psychological testing can provide an understanding of your unique needs and how to maximize your potential."

"I approach the therapy process with warmth, gentle humor, and sensitivity because I understand it may be challenging to open up to someone new. When you feel safe to process your emotions and experiences from the past you can begin to build the foundation for lasting, positive change in both your inner and outer life. Therapy is most effective in the context of a compassionate and supportive relationship, so I place a high priority on developing trust as we work together at your pace within the boundaries of a protective, non-judgmental space."

Often times, due to our unhealthy relationships, we face dysfunctional patterns and behaviors that affect our present relationships, mood and attitude. I help patients become aware of those patterns and work on unhealthy behaviors that may no longer be of need for us in our present adult life.

"If you or your child suffer from OCD or other anxiety disorders, you're not alone. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness, yet most sufferers don't receive proper, evidence-based treatment. OCD/anxiety can cause problems socially, academically, professionally, and create chaos with family members. The good news is that there is help. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has repeatedly shown to be the most effective approach for defeating OCD and anxiety. CBT creates new neuro-pathways by changing the way you think and behave. It's basically exercise for the brain. The more you flex those brain muscles, the stronger you become."

"While traditional psychotherapy utilizes theories and skills that focus on eliciting change, Transformation Therapy uses theories and skills that elicit transformation. Whats the difference between change and transformation? Change is a difficult task to accomplish. What do I mean by this? Take for example that old saying "When life hands you lemons turn them into lemonade". We cannot change the fact that life has handed us a lemon specifically, as we cannot change the make-up of the actual lemon. However we can transform the lemon through creation- into sweet and delicious lemonade!"
