"My practice focuses on psychological evaluations for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Some reasons folks seek my help is to assess for autism and other developmental disabilities, learning disorders, attentional problems, and forensic work (i.e. competency to stand trial). My approach is to learn about the whole person rather than rely on tests alone to produce an evaluation best suited to your needs. This information can inform future treatment, clarify a diagnosis, and lead to more effective treatment recommendations."

"As a therapist I focus on the particular circumstances presented, help construct personalized goals by carefully and non-judgmentally attending to what is being presented. My effort is to respond in a direct, supportive, and interactive manner always from an empathetic perspective. My training took me deep into the human condition, and I've worked with most of the difficult problems prevalent in our contemporary experience. While working with couples the relationship is the goal for a couple. But when working with an individual I focus on the persons sense of self."

"I want to create a relationship with my clients based on trust, mutual respect, and unconditional regard. I feel that if I can create this environment I can more deeply connect with others and hope to see things from their perspective. I believe that people have the inner capacity for change, and I want to help them be more able to readily access this. This can look different based on each person, helping people move forward in a way they feel will be most productive. I also value multicultural differences and in an effort to more fully understand a person's frame of reference."

"Addiction is a frightening disorder. I have been treating clients suffering from addiction for five years. In addition to treating addiction, I also treat anxiety, depression, isolation, hopelessness, and low self-esteem. These disorders and daily difficulties, I believe, stem from feeling lost in the world, from being hurt or traumatized by others in your life, and most of all, from feeling disconnected to your true authentic self and the world around you. I use a combination of science-based interventions, along with holistic, native and natural-based practices to help others find themselves, their true nature, and true happiness."
