"My therapeutic approach focuses very much on the here-and-now. While events in your past certainly played some role in your present distress, the past can not be changed. I believe the primary goal of psychotherapy is to teach you the tools you need to change the current patterns that are causing you problems. I also have special training and experience working with children and adolescents. While the techniques used with youths are obviously different from those used with adults, the goal remains the same: to provide the tools that will bring about positive change."

"Experiencing trauma is so overwhelming in and of itself; however, that's only part of the picture. After this difficult situation, you feel anxious, fearful, sad, guilty, and distrusting. You try not to think about what happened but you can't stop images from entering your mind. Your friends or loved ones may say: "You need to move on," "It's in the past," or "It wasn't as bad as ____". Maybe you're drinking or using drugs to try to avoid all of this. These are common experiences for those who have experienced trauma (and many different types of events can be traumatic)."

"If you are suffering from medication resistant depression, anxiety, OCD, or PTSD, a combination of talk therapy and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) may be the answer for you. For many people, antidepressants do not fully relieve the symptoms or cause too many side effects, and it can become very difficult going through multiple medications that do not seem to work. After failed medication attempts, you are eligible to be treated with TMS and therapy together. Call our Specialists to learn more about your options."
