"I AM NOT CURRENTLY TAKING ANY NEW CLIENTS. You're struggling to control the negative storyteller in your mind. You imagine catastrophic scenarios linked to everyday moments, actively planning for how people will respond to what you say or do. That inner narrative is draining your mental energy, protecting against something that isn't going to happen. The easy option is to put up walls, blocking people from being able to hurt you. But that only makes you more fearful and lonely. What if you could find a way to have healthy boundaries that allow people to connect with you? A way to relate that feels wonderful?"

"I believe in the innate power each of us possesses to heal. Beginning with a gentle exploration of your story, your sense awareness and your feeling world, I seek to find a mutually agreed upon place to begin deeper work together. I hold close to embodiment (breath/gesture/sensation); creativity (playfulness/curiosity/possibility); and compassion (non-judgment/empathy/connection): all these are pathways to ground and support your healing process. I have found that depth of relationship itself is a healer, so I strive for a REAL, courageous relationship with my clients- capable of sustaining vulnerability, fierceness and deep transformations."

"Traditional talk therapy is incredibly effective for many people and for lots of the things that can make life difficult for us. Talk therapy focuses on the mind, changing the way we think about ourselves and the stories we tell ourselves. Sometimes, despite our best efforts, problems like anxiety, trauma responses, depression, ADHD, PTSD and more remain, even after a considerable effort is made through talk therapy. Neurofeedback targets the brain, the actual organ. Talk therapy targets the mind and has limited access to the brain. Neurofeedback is able to reset the brain in a way talk therapy cannot always do."
