I frequently work with developmental and life-adjustment challenges. This includes executive functioning issues, like ADHD, moodiness and depression, or anxiety due to high academic pressure, life stress, or divorce. I also work extensively with technology-related issues: healthy-mind balance, boundary setting, as well as mindfulness practices for relaxation and expanding frustration tolerance."

"While traditional psychotherapy utilizes theories and skills that focus on eliciting change, Transformation Therapy uses theories and skills that elicit transformation. Whats the difference between change and transformation? Change is a difficult task to accomplish. What do I mean by this? Take for example that old saying "When life hands you lemons turn them into lemonade". We cannot change the fact that life has handed us a lemon specifically, as we cannot change the make-up of the actual lemon. However we can transform the lemon through creation- into sweet and delicious lemonade!"

"I believe anxiety and stress to be the foundation of many issues we all face. My first goal is to help my patients reduce stress thereby decreasing chronic pain, depression and even the ravages of disease and illness. By developing rapport and trust and then utilizing healthy coping skills, the goal of anxiety reduction can be achieved. Its important to remember that we are engaged in a collaborative process where we learn to accept, resolve, move on and let go. I find that mindfulness, meditation and breathing is highly effective in decreasing anxiety and depression."
