My Approach to Helping

Are your troubles making it hard to cope? Worries feel like a never-ending loop? New life transitions making you ask "who am I"?

My philosophy is to see each person as bringing something unique to the therapeutic relationship. Regardless of diagnosis, everyone has their own experiences along with an identity that has been formed over the lifespan. My goal is to walk with you on your journey by assisting you in discovering the new, working in the present, as well as analyzing the past. I like to use an eclectic approach with a mix of CBT, DBT, Solution-Focused, etc. to assist my clients. If office sessions don't work with your schedule, I offer virtual sessions as well. Feel free to call or email if you have any questions!

Also, I specialize in neurofeedback therapy, a non-invasive brain training intervention that assists with physical and mental health symptom reduction as well as career, academic, and athletic performance enhancement.
Neurofeedback is very effective in treating symptoms of ADHD (distractibility, impulsivity, and hyperactivity) and lacks the side effects associated with stimulant medications. If you are an athlete looking to take your game to the next level, try peak performance brain training! Give us a call and we will set you up with your own specialized program.
