Do you find yourself repeating the same patterns and making the same 'mistakes' over and over again, with each person you're with? Are you completely burnt out and frustrated with dating? Do you find yourself over-analyzing your interactions with the people you like - plagued by self-doubt when it comes comes to the best way to handle uncomfortable situations and wondering if you're handling things in a way that might be interfering with your dating success?

Healing occurs when we get below the surface of the issue and connect back to our truth and authenticity. I am particularly good at helping you get to the root of your problems and dig deep. I help you identify the connection between your past experiences and how they have influenced who you are today and the actions you take in your life. Are you feeling lost or disconnected? Fearful of putting yourself out there, or questioning your path? Maybe you are navigating pivotal life and relationship changes and struggling with the grief and uncertainty of it all.

Sometimes we are so busy with life that we don’t have time to learn about the things that make us happy.
I enjoy helping youth, college students, adults, and older adults learn to manage emotional stress, anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, Trauma, and LGBTQ+ issues. Collaborating with clients on goals helps them tap into their authentic selves, helping them identify personalized self-care skills to restructure negative thinking patterns. I think it is important to meet people where they are focusing on their strengths to inspire and motivate them to meet their particular needs or goals. I help my clients find inner happiness through a positive mindset.

I am convinced it has changed my life.
In my years of practice I have felt that something was needed that could not be touched despite excellent talk therapy: the answer is combine it with Neurofeedback. It is a brain exercise system that helps you change by creating a more functional and stable brain state, reducing anxiety and depression, PTSD, migraines, artistic blocks, and ADHD. It enhances focus, clarity, memory, and improves relationships. I work with the entertainment industry, schools, trauma survivors, and I teach psychology and creative process at Antioch University.
