"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."

"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."
