"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 believe therapy is the development of a safe and trusting relationship between the facilitator and the participant. Therapy can be hard work and getting started can be scary, however making art, using play or being in nature can ease this process. As your therapist I will encourage you to use your creative imagination as a vehicle to understanding your inner turmoil, psychic pain or stagnancy. Along the way we will be implementing these effective tools in cultivating a more fulfilling life experience."

"Everyone has an innate ability to enjoy a life balanced with love, work and play. When personal issues and uncomfortable feelings block this ability, we need to grow and heal. My calm, gentle nature and use of humor helps people explore and resolve these blocks. Humor is important for relaxing with light-hearted laughter and making shifts in one’s life are intertwined. I’ve helped numerous couples repair broken relationships, heal hurts and resentments, while reestablishing meaningful communication. A sense of safety, relief, and a softening of the heart occurs as each partner feels heard and understood. Blaming stops and problem solving begins."
