"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."

"Have you ever wondered why you do the things you do? Or why your relationships aren't what you want them to be? Why does a part of you want to do one thing, yet another part wants to do something completely different? There are reasons behind everything we do, even when we're not aware of them. I can help you explore behaviors, and the feelings behind them, that affect your life and your relationships. Through a process called "Internal Family Systems," you can learn to understand and value yourself in ways you never thought possible."

"There comes a time for many of us when we need to seek additional help, even when we have a strong, loving support network. Therapy is different than other types of support. It is goal-directed, and aimed toward self-discovery and accessing your own internal abilities. It is a collaboration between you, the expert on yourself, and a skilled therapist who can assist you in navigating through difficult situations and healing painful parts of yourself. I see individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship challenges, and difficult life transitions."

""Grief does not change you...it reveals you."- John Green. Loss comes in many forms; death of a loved one, family trauma, end of a relationship or job, a move/loss of home, and health issues. Experiencing grief because of loss can make us turn away just when we need the most support. We can also get triggered at certain times, especially around the holidays. Reaching out takes courage and I provide a safe, nonjudgmental and caring space to help clients express complicated emotions, manage anxiety/sleep issues, learn coping skills and practice self-care during these life changing transitions."

"Do you want more ease, joy, and meaning in your life? Therapy can help. Aside from having the obvious goal of relieving anxiety, confusion, or pain and suffering, therapy can profoundly enrich your life. The more we befriend, understand, and accept ourselves just as we are, the more we can respond to the challenges that come our way from choice rather than habitual reaction. To facilitate this I offer an openhearted, authentic presence along with mindfulness-based tools that promote self-awareness, self-compassion, and the process of healing."

"I believe the most important element for positive change is the relationship between the therapist and client. If the client can truly trust their therapist, he or she can allow themselves to explore, heal, and integrate all aspects of themselves. This leads to a feeling of wholeness and relief from anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and other issues. I use intuition and compassion, in addition to my training and education.
