More Info About My Practice
With couples I focus on communication which is the key to developing intimacy in our relationship. Couples don't, won't and can't always agree. Disagreements happen, problems will arise. We feel love when we know that our feelings are heard, remembered, and honored. Our group great therapists if you prefer a female.
Our quest for happiness often depends on finding and sustaining love. True love implies commitment. First of all, do you and your partner call yourself a couple? If not, is it appropriate to be doing this work? Each relationship teaches us and deepens our perception of love. Love has many degrees. Committed couples grow together, they desire to make their partner happier, too. This is why I wrote "Heart and Soul Toward Intimacy Couples Guide" to help improve communication, improve trust and passion back into the relationship.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Each person has a unique story and I imagine the healing process for each person is unique as well. I will develop a treatment plan that is as unique as you are.The Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) reads a patient brainwaves with EEG sensors on the head. Then a computer program simplifies the information and echoes it back through the sensors as an imperceptible electromagnetic signal. The brain uses this essential information to automatically identify and discard negative emotional patterns. It is as if the brain sees itself in a mirror and naturally reorganizes neural pathways to optimize thought patterns and moods. LENS Neurofeedback sessions are medication-free and take only a few minutes in a comfortable office setting.
I am now certified to administer LENS Neurofeedback which is FDA certified by Oshslabs which have conducted over twenty thousand safe and effective treatments. Adult, adolescent, and child neurofeedback treatment is endorsed by AACAP guidelines for behavioral health. Since 1986, our patients have experienced relief from difficulties with concentration, habitual negative thoughts, foggy thinking, negative moods, memory, procrastination, irritability, migraines, and sleep.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
The FCSD treatment team leverages a variety of treatment modalities to better meet your needs. While we are here to guide you and find the ?best fit? to help obtain your treatment goals, some clients prefer to seek a specific type of treatment. Others simply wish to know more about the treatment modalities. Clients who receive neurofeedback treatment can choose to do so in conjunction with their own individual therapy. Depending on what your presenting symptoms are or what you are hoping to resolve, there are several reasons why you might choose both or why you would select one over the other. In the sections below we provide some scenarios and a few reasons how choosing one or both services might serve your needs in the best way possible.
Be assured that it is never a mistake to choose counseling and neurofeedback together. However, if you are having results with just one type of treatment, we want you to avoid additional treatments that might not be necessary.
What we have witnessed when clients choose to do both is that the strategies and insights learned in counseling are enforced by the neurofeedback at the neurological level so that the client is better able to maintain their positive changes. Many clients report that neurofeedback has helped get them into the right space so they have the ability to process and delve deeper in their individual therapy. Also, it is best practice to provide CBT therapy while providing Direct Neurofeedback together. This also allows the client to utilize insurance as most insurance carriers do not reimburse for Direct Neurofeedback without CBT therapy being provided.
Choosing Neurofeedback During Counseling
We often have clients referred to us who feel ?stuck? or have ?plateaued? in their own individual counseling. This could be for many reasons but often is because they are unable to access their emotions as much as they desire. Sometimes they feel like they understand the roots of their anxiety or depression but still can?t move through it.
Feeling ?stuck? in individual counseling can also happen if circumstances in clients? lives are particularly stressful, keeping them activated in their ?flight, fight or freeze response.? This means they have activated their sympathetic nervous system and are therefore less able to accomplish introspection during counseling as they are in ?survival mode.? In these types of situations, neurofeedback is a great addition. It can serve to support and further the work being done in counseling as it can help the brain and body relax, which allows internal shifts to resume.
