"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."

Having bothersome thoughts? Can't get going? Disorganized? Distracted? Lost interest in things you once enjoyed? These things don't have to manage your life. You can learn how to manage them instead of them managing you. Working together, you will learn adaptive ways to think and respond to various stressors and develop healthy coping strategies.

"The majority of my work has been centered around the neurobiology of trauma, and early attachment experiences that form and shape relationships, beliefs, feelings and behaviors in the present. Some common challenges and themes have been addictive and compulsive behaviors, relationship difficulty, depression, loneliness, anger, anxiety, self loathing and shame. A few clients come in with clarity on what they want to talk about, but most just know they are struggling and aren't sure where to begin. My job will be to create the environment and provide the tools to help us uncover, explore and integrate the unconscious and conscious parts of the psyche."
