My Approach to Helping
You should feel comfortable, respected, listened to and heard in the therapeutic relationship. These things are necessary for therapy to be helpful, but are not enough. You also need somebody with the appropriate education and experience if therapy is to be effective. As a result of working together we will not only identify the source of the problem, which is almost always related to problems with brain function, but help you resolve it and achieve the results you are hoping for.
Most problems that bring people into therapy, such as problems managing emotions; problems with thinking, memory, or attention; behavioral problems; or a history of trauma in the form of some type of abuse, concussion, or head injury, are caused by inadequate fueling to the brain. You do not have a character defect, personal weakness, or inherent lack of motivation. As a result of our work together and you will learn to more effectively manage your emotions and behavior. The result is you get your life back now and maintain your brain health in the future.
I actively integrate research and clinical practice in a warm, supportive atmosphere, which respects you and your ability to recover. When therapy is completed we will objectively measure your results and those results will be shared with you. This data guides our work together and assures you that you are receiving the most effective treatment available. You can see outcome data on my website at peakneuropsych.com
