I’m a LCSW with many years of experience working with adolescents, families, and young adults. I believe that we all are powerful and resilient beyond measure, but sometimes find ourselves caught in patterns that no longer serve us. The teen years are a time of inquiry and creation, but also a time of confusion, fear, and angst. I find delight in walking this part of their journey with them as they navigate their way into adulthood. I believe that one’s experience in therapy is most impacted by the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client. To be seen and heard is the greatest gift we can give to another.

Accompaniment matters. Relationships transform. We sit together to access the health that is at the center of every human being, even when one of us can’t feel it. We sit because healing happens in relationship, access to true self is made easier in the presence of another person’s settled nervous system, and because your healing matters for the health of all of us. Whether you are facing overwhelm, anger, a frozen feeling, compulsions, depression, trauma, anxiety, or facing other difficult experience, we can touch it with awareness and respect. Our experience includes joy, includes pain, and includes connection and compassion.

Neurofeedback trains voluntary control over mood states, sleep states, cognitive functioning, chronic pain and many autonomic symptoms. The process of conceptualizing problems from different perspectives and planning changes needed, along with Neurofeedback to change actual brain function, often brings about rapid positive change, and enables reduction or even elimination of psychotropic medications.

There is never a wrong time to start therapy, nor is there a right one. We won’t worry about right or wrong, but instead we’ll accept where you are - as we work together to discover where you want to go and how to get there. I spend a lot of my free time hiking, seeking out new and interesting terrain. The growth you will hopefully experience during our work together may be much like a challenging hike, with some gentle slopes and triumphant summits, but also with trips, stumbles, and strenuous climbs. I cannot climb your mountains for you, but I will climb them with you and help to show you the way forward.

My hope is to assist you in transforming those painful, self limiting beliefs and old patterns into realistic and affirming ones. The process I most often use incorporates bi-lateral stimulation of the brain. This is a simple technique that often has profound results. It has been shown to move client's very quickly towards the core healing which is central to lasting results. One of the key benefits of this therapy is the ability to approach new situations /people with creativity, clarity, and new problem solving techniques.This often occurs spontaneously as part of the process.
