My therapeutic approach is best described as eclectic--a unique and constantly shifting balance among the various humanistic schools. Therapy involves multiple levels of interrelated change: emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual. In order to be effective it must revolve around client needs and desires; decisions about counseling goals and practices are therefore developed jointly. I greatly enjoy helping others as they grow, change and heal-both internally and in relation to the people and institutions which fill their lives. I welcome challenge, value collaborative relationships with clients, peers, and community alike, and I maintain a firm belief in the resiliency of all.

Neurofeedback (NFB) optimizes brainwave activity with no drugs, no side effects. NFB gives the brain information leading to more flexible and resilient function, which leads to a reduction or elimination of anxiety, distractability, insomnia, PTSD, OCD, and other symptoms related to brain function. I use state-of-the-art technology that triggers the brains neuroplasticity = brain's ability to heal itself. Effortlessly. Kids love it. Symptoms of ADHD, autism, sensory issues, rage, depression often resolve. NFB is a breakthrough therapy that uses real-time EEG technology which results in greater focus, resilience, joy.

What if you could make your life the way you want it to be? Would you like to overcome loneliness, self-doubt, anxiety, fear of failure, hopelessness, relationship difficulties? Many times our discontent in the present is tethered to traumatic events in our past. If you suffered trauma as a child or as an adult, chances are you have adapted and survived but you may not be currently thriving. The deeper the wounding, the more profound the negative impacts can be in your present life. The miracle of therapy offers you the power to rewrite your past and reprogram your future.

There are many approaches to treating pain. Counseling deals primarily with common issues such as relationship problems, job stress or life changes. Psychotherapy goes into more depth and deals with specific symptoms such as depression, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive traits. The goal of psychotherapy is not to "fix" external problems, although that can be the result; rather, the purpose of psychotherapy is to understand the internal world of the client. Change and struggle are inevitable -- but as we come to know and accept ourselves, we begin to respond to change and struggle in ways that cause us less distress.
