"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."

It is the heart of my work to help create a space that will allow you to stop 'should-ing' yourself and encourage you to start truly living! With the use of a nonjudgmental, compassionate, affective approach, you can learn to refrain from judging yourself for what your life should look like, & instead, open up to the possibility of what your life could look like.

"My practice centers on promoting change through love, compassion and acceptance. I assist clients in moving towards greater healing and wholeness by providing a safe and encouraging therapeutic relationship. You may have a sense that something isn't right in your life but aren't sure what it is. Or you may know what it is but have no idea how to change it. 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. Making changes in these areas takes time and courage. The good news is you do not have to do it alone. "

""Stuck." At some point in our lives, we all feel it. I help people link their desire for things to be different to the places they feel stuck, healthfully and effectively. You don't need to know how to change, we start with where you are. I like the Chinese proverb, "Acceptance and change are brothers, but acceptance is the older brother." By helping you learn to first accept where you are (even if now it seems impossible), suffering is naturally reduced and there is more energy and room for growth. You get to like yourself now AND change."

""Grief does not change you...it reveals you."- John Green. Loss comes in many forms; death of a loved one, family trauma, end of a relationship or job, a move/loss of home, and health issues. Experiencing grief because of loss can make us turn away just when we need the most support. We can also get triggered at certain times, especially around the holidays. Reaching out takes courage and I provide a safe, nonjudgmental and caring space to help clients express complicated emotions, manage anxiety/sleep issues, learn coping skills and practice self-care during these life changing transitions."
