Do you feel out of control? Unmotivated, exhausted, anxious, or stressed? Are you repeating the same old relationships, patterns, or situations, and wishing you could break the endless cycle? Maybe little things feel more frustrating or overwhelming than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. Even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is not to judge your life--it's to listen, help you understand root causes of your issues, and teach you practical tools to change your life.

I am a firm believer in thorough evaluation early on in the therapy process. I frequently use my expertise in psychological testing to assist in this diagnostic process to ensure the most effective and appropriate treatments are used. While the human condition allows for great challenges and pain, it also allows for miraculous opportunities for healing and growth. Therapy is a collaborative relationship. I focus treatment on a combination of providing information, skill building, and evidence based treatments. Being tech-interested also helps me connect with younger clients, and bridge the gap of resistance to change or getting help.

Your son is definitely going through something. You're worried about the pre-teen, teen, or young adult in your life. He seems down, depressed, discouraged, but then just tunes out the world with his video games. He's anxious, dealing with pressure, school, friends, & he needs to actually face his struggles. He won't open up to you or other family members. He seems to be isolating more - you think he might have some addiction going on. He's not as interested in his usual activities. You're basically concerned about the direction of his life. What you really want is your kid to be happy, motivated, and moving in a good direction.

Heal anxiety and depression for good and come back into the warmth of the sunlight, where you belong. It doesn’t take years of therapy...it just takes the right therapy. It takes a therapy that comfortably and quickly gets to the roots of the issue and teaches you how to fully release what is holding you back from change. Once you clear out the roots, change is easy and natural. Clients tell me that it sometimes feels like a miracle, but the power of this therapy is rooted in science. It is simply working with an understanding of how memories are held in our bodies and subconscious mind. More knowledge equals more power to change.
