My Approach to Helping

Although I was originally trained as an M.D., my current passion is teaching pathophysiology at a university in Phoenix during the day and helping people heal, psychologically, in the afternoonsnighttime. I do not personally prescribe medicine but I will absolutely work with you and your physician to help you get the holistic treatment that is best for you. As the Clinical Director at Breakthrough Behavioral Health, my goal is to get you the best care possible and work closely with an integrated team to help you achieve your goals.
My natural instinct is to make sure you understand both the biological and psychological reasons behind your troubles and then we work together to put YOU back in control of your life. I understand that people are different so I try to stay competent in a wide variety of treatment modalities.
Regardless of what's on your mind, from relationship issues, to job stress, generalized anxiety, depression, addiction, to just about anything else, I am confident we can work together to find that next big breakthrough!

More Info About My Practice

Breakthrough Behavioral Health is a small, private counseling practice that excels in providing general mental health by using best practices in counseling, combined with cutting edge technology such as neurofeedback and virtual reality assisted visualization for reducing anxiety and depression. We don't participate in any government contracts so we have the freedom to do what's best for our clients as our only priority.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

If you've never been in counseling before, you'll be pleasantly surprised about how easy and comfortable it is to talk with us. The relationship between you and your therapist is unique in that it's completely one-sided. It's all about helping you feel better. That's it. So, pick up the phone and call us. Very soon you'll be making a breakthrough that will change your life.
