I work with both adults and children/teenagers (8+).
I know when looking for counseling the process can seem daunting. You have to worry about specializations, openings, the time it will take to get to and from the appointment, not to mention the appointment itself. At New Heights we focus on making the process as easy as possible, from helping connect you to the best clinician within the practice to providing the most advanced treatment options we can. You matter and we want to help you achieve not just your mental health goals but making joy a part of your life.

When was the last time you showed up for yourself with the same love and compassion you have for those around you? All too often shame and self-judgement feed anxiety and insecurities, getting in the way of feeling good about yourself. I can help you quiet the self-judgement, calm your anxieties, and learn to really value yourself. You can have your own back, set boundaries without guilt, and feel comfortable in your own skin.

My clientele spans across a wide age group with a diverse set of needs. Some individuals seek assistance with acute stressful situations, others with life transitions, and still others with ongoing mental health issues. Without exception, every individual is treated with dignity and offered the highest level of treatment available. Being in a small city sometimes requires collaboration with other providers such as primary care physicians or clinics for medication management, school districts for continuity of care, or nursing homes for consultation. My office has successfully maintained these type relationships for 25 years.

We help adults and children with our EEG-biofeedback training program.
I believe that behavior without context is meaningless. We blame ourselves too easily for things which go wrong whether they are within or beyond our control. Our natural guiding intuitions are overridden by years of social conditioning. In stressful situations, primitive reactions trigger and hijack our ability to make calm decisions. We overreact too often. Fear, anger, surrender, take over. We help you understand how behavior goes wrong. We then help you get unstuck from the inside out using psychotherapy for understanding, EMDR for healing traumas, and EEG-Biofeedback to train your brain to work at its best, even under duress.

I have experience working with children, adolescents and their families in an outpatient and school based settings.
Feeling anxious and overwhelmed may seem like your normal, but I assure you that you were not created to live that way. Peace and contentment is very possible given the right skills and support. Perhaps feeling stuck or trapped is where you have been lately and it is affecting other areas of your life where you are not living as your best self. Relationships can be hard especially if we have stressors weighing us down so we feel even more defeated. Feeling good about yourself and others is very possible as most people were not given the coping strategies needed and survival is where many people are at. You don't have to be.

You may have blamed yourself, asking ‘Why didn’t I see this sooner?’ ‘Why didn’t I notice they were losing weight?’, ‘Why is it still so hard, we’ve been going to therapy? Or ‘they’re eating more, why are things still so tense?’ If you are feeling lost, hopeless, frustrated, angry, confused and discouraged, you are not alone.
