My Approach to Helping

You can feel better! We specialize in anxiety, depression, couples and family issues, addictions, sleep problems, concussion and brain injury, ADD, PTSDtrauma, and stroke. We are friendly and goal oriented. I have 25 years experience in counseling adults, teens, and children. And, if you wish, we can also integrate neurofeedback training into our work together. I taught neurofeedback at San Francisco State University. This modality uses the EEG (which neurologists also use) to teach you to change brainwave patterns that keep you from being your best.

What is different about what we do? Many therapists use the "uh huh, go on" approach. We do much more. Though I'm a good listener, I also help you to set goals and achieve them. How? Through using proven, effective tools for change that you can learn.
