"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."

"I look forward to helping you through compassion, acceptance, and non-judgmental support. I can help you experience peace, balance and harmony using Art Therapy and /or Internal Family Systems Therapy. Both therapeutic approaches are an effective way to access empowerment, self-confidence, decision making ability, relieve undesirable behavior/thoughts, and it engages both sides of the brain so that you are fully present with your life. It increases awareness of self and others and helps you experience success. I can help you access "parts" of your "Self" and rebuild the way you think about the various aspects of your personality, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors."

"I am a licensed clinical social worker, psychotherapist, trainer, consultant, and educator. My passion and skill set is in creating environments for people to gain greater insight into their strengths, gifts, and those places that contribute to blocking the ability to find joy in your life. Participating in therapy can help you learn new and important things about yourself and others. Before you can consider making changes it is important to find a safe place and competent help. I am curious, compassionate, appreciate laughter, tears and understand that we all suffer from time to time and can experience JOY."

"Compassion and curiosity are the starting place for our exploration. Life is inherently challenging and difficult, and we all suffer from hurts large and small, past and present. And most of us are plagued by a strong inner critic who thinks they are helping but often shames and limits us. In spite of our best efforts, cycles of expectation and disappointment can leave us feeling confused, isolated, frustrated, and trapped in our habitual patterns. As Ta-Nehisi Coates put it, "I am marked by old codes, which shielded me in one world and then chained me in the next.""

"Sometimes we need extra help when facing particularly painful, overwhelming, or puzzling situations. By setting aside a dedicated time and place in which to bring your full attention (and mine) to the task of sorting out what pains or blocks you, you give yourself the best opportunity to craft the life you wish to live. In the company of a skilled practitioner, the process of therapy can help you work through old patterns and address the challenges at hand. You can experience a greater sense of meaning, purpose, and peace in your life and in your relationships."

"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."

"Crises and painful emotions can be the beginning of a journey toward transformation and wisdom. If you are looking for a deeper and more connected sense of yourself, and fulfillment in life, then you may be ready for a commitment to the therapeutic process. I believe my empathic presence - the capacity to hear, see and feel a situation from the other person's vantage point- is central to the healing process. Within such a safe relationship the patient can develop an open attitude toward the unconscious; exploration of the meaning and purpose of one's life can unfold."

"As I see it, the primary role of a counselor is to serve as a mirror to help reveal what the client hasn't yet been able to see-especially those patterns of relating to self, others, and the environment that might be causing suffering. At the same time, the counselor is there to reflect, affirm, and strengthen the client's unique gifts and talents.One of the biggest impediments to healing, growth, and creativity is shame. To help clients move through this debilitating emotion, I use a combination of mindfulness, body awareness, and other healing modalities."
