About

Time for a new approach? An integrated approach of LENS Neurotherapy, EMDR and "talk" therapy has resulted in rapid improvements for client mood & overall health. LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System) "reboots" suppressed areas of the brain impacted by emotional trauma, concussion, illness, toxins/meds... with applications typically lasting seconds to a few minutes. Michael has offered EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) therapy since 2001, effective for resolving emotional trauma & targeting "stuck" thinking patterns. Changes occur through the "safe space" of the therapeutic relationship & brain-based interventions.
LENS has helped: PTSD, Anxiety, Sleep, Mental Fog, Concussion, Fatigue, Depression, Seizures, Fibromyalgia, Headaches/Migraines, Memory/Learning, Motivation, OCD, Pain, Strokes, TBI, Addiction, ADHD, Autism... Clients also choose EMDR therapy for reducing the intensity of disturbing memories with a process similar to what happens naturally during REM sleep.
Together we will explore the underlying causes of symptoms and a strategic treatment strategy for your breakthrough! The combined use of Neurofeedback and EMDR typically has a synergetic effect, enhancing its effectiveness. I will utilize 30 years of experience to help you function at a higher level.
