"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 live in Paradise but I realize at times even Paradise feels difficult. Looking for a therapist can be as challenging as the reasons we are seeking one. I approach therapy as a team, working together to find solutions, work through challenges, look at your strengths in an effort to bring some solace back into your life and get you living again, not just surviving. My style is primarily interactive, I work through the eyes of curiosity and I like to use humor and try to interject some fun into our therapy sessions, realizing how heavy it could be to work through your stuff."

"Are you experiencing a personal difficulty, feeling stuck or overwhelmed? The seeds of change are often born in the midst of heartache and loss... Navigating through the challenges of life can be disheartening. It takes courage to reach out when we are feeling vulnerable or when life as we know it seems to fall apart. Sometimes just having someone listen can make all the difference. In a safe and confidential atmosphere, clients tend to discover ways to move beyond past events -- making their life less cumbersome, with more moments of joy and satisfaction."

My job is to first of all provide a safe space for your self-exploration. I am endlessly fascinated by the growth that happens when people feel safe and not judged. I invite you to be your "uncensored self" because only when we accept who we are; are we open to change."

Maybe you see yourself in a cycle of destructive relationships, thought patterns or behaviors. Or you experience overwhelming negative emotions and don't know how to cope. You hope that if you just try harder or stay busy your situation will change and, when that doesn't work, you beat yourself up. Both avoiding and forcing change do not work because we cannot change until we first feel accepted as we are. Many of the issues we face are deep set and can't be changed overnight, whether its feelings of anxiety, a strong need to control our situation and people in our lives, failed romantic relationships, a low sense of self-worth or the after-effects of a traumatic experience.
