"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."

"We all have an inner wisdom and interior life that can inform and transform how we hold and participate in the wonder of our lives. I view psychotherapy as a threshold for those seeking a deeper connection to their own experience. Exploring how these mysterious inner resources manifest in the external environment can make it possible to view our lives from a new vantage point. I support individuals to feel more alive, awake and whole in each moment regardless of their circumstances."

"My passion and speciality is focused around working with teens and their families. My counseling approach is centered on the individual teen and their specific needs. Creating a safe and supportive space for teens to express their struggles, fears, dreams, and passions is my primary goal in treatment. Working with the family in developing healthy communication skills and realistic expectations for their teen is also an important step in the treatment process. Providing a neutral space for teens and their families to communicate their feelings often leads to a better understanding of each others perspectives and a deeper connection."

I love accessing images in art and dreams, as well as gesture and the body, to give voice to the unconscious heart. My intention is that our work together will allow you more choice, more freedom and more clarity about your own desires and abilities."

"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."

"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.""
