Welcome, our practice at Insight Neuropsychology specializes in personalized neuropsychological assessment and treatment services to assist you in promoting your cognitive health. Our goal is to help you learn about how your brain is functioning, as insight is the first step in learning how to improve your mental functions. Neuropsychological assessment is one of the most sensitive instruments for detecting subtle cognitive deficits that are not obvious on MRI's or other brain scans, but which can have a large impact on a person's daily functioning. In addition to assessment, we also provide supportive counseling for patients and caregivers.

My approach to psychotherapy/psychoanalysis is to provide a safe, non-judge mental and trusting environment where you can freely express your feelings. I believe each of us is striving to develop our own unique sense of self. We can do this together by identifying beliefs and behaviors that do not serve you and cultivating ones that do. This becomes a partnership. I am committed to helping you out of the darkness and into the light again. My training offers a wide variety of ways to achieve this task. Together we will follow closely your needs, desires and emotions.

Each of us passes through struggles that are difficult to cope with. In working together to form a therapeutic relationship we can become healthier and more able to react more skillfully to the challenges that present themselves. My work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families is based off a strong clinical foundation and woven together with compassion, respect and caring. By resolving some of our issues we can become balanced and find improved overall health (mentally, physically, spiritually, financially, emotionally).

You’ve most likely been led here because something wants to shift or shed. It is common, and often necessary within our lifetime, to experience many seasons of challenge—for every one of these challenges represents an opportunity to grow deeper into who we truly are. Through the understanding and felt experience of our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors, the otherwise unconscious parts of ourselves may be heard. To see ourselves - and each other - for who we truly are takes vulnerability, courage, and curiosity. I support clients alongside their journey toward truth through attunement and empathy in the confidential space of therapy.

Does your relationship feel terribly one-sided, with you constantly making sacrifices for someone without getting much in return? Often, when you wrap your life around someone else, accepting unacceptable circumstances to keep the relationship together, it can be emotionally exhausting and profoundly destructive. So, how do you change things when life is so challenging and you're alone in your efforts to fix it; when you feel completely responsible for the well-being of others at the cost of your peace of mind? Therapy is the best next step when your own efforts haven't worked out.

I have been privileged to help adults and couples with life transitions and stress-related problems; depression and anxiety; grief and bereavement; traumatic events of childhood and adulthood; sexual identity issues; and other life problems. I work to bring you in close touch with the parts of yourself that you have been avoiding, neglecting or rejecting, in order to develop a different relationship with yourself, a relationship of understanding, kindness and forgiveness. When we are no longer frightened by those parts of ourselves that were unacceptable, we slow down, lose our reactivity, and remain present, even in difficult circumstances.
