About

Many people seek therapy because they want answers to their problems, for example, a diagnosis, a treatment plan, etc. It can be enormously helpful to have an understanding of one's problems and coping patterns. The initial phase of any treatment is to develop a clear understanding of the problem and possible interventions, including behavioral and lifestyle changes, etc. At the same time, change is rarely the product of finding a specific intervention, but is often the process of finding better questions. People grow and change through relationships; and psychotherapy is a special kind of relationship that facilitates this process.
My specialty is neurobiofeedback, a treatment that can help train the brain to respond differently to stress, anxiety, and other clinical problems from attention deficit disorder, to depression, to sleep problems, and more. This treatment works best in conjunction with psychotherapy to help understand and process changes taking place.
Specific suggestions and interventions are often helpful, but I believe that my role as an active listener can often be more beneficial in fostering change and growth, helping people to listen better to themselves in a place of safety and privacy.
