Psychotherapist with over 35 years of clinical experience offering innovative solutions for Addictions, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD and Developmental Trauma.

Are you new to therapy, and looking for the most advanced neuroscience-based interventions available? Or, have you tried talk therapy and made progress, but ultimately felt that it wasn’t enough? Have you returned to using alcohol or other drugs despite your best efforts in recovery? What if there were a way of reducing symptoms of depression, anxiety, obsessive thoughts, trauma and attention problems that could complement talk therapy and medication? A new approach to treatment called “neurofeedback” yields promising results of this nature.
Neurofeedback addresses problems with mental health from an entirely different direction — by training our brains to regulate it's own activity better. When this self-regulation improves, symptoms common to many different mental disorders lessen. Imagine being able to sleep better, focus better, obsess less, feel less anxious and react less impulsively.
I am a Clinical Social Worker with over 35 years of experience in the treatment of Addictive disorders, PTSD and Developmental Trauma, ADHD, OCD, Anxiety and Depressive disorders in children, adolescents and adults. I also provide Family, Marital, and Couples therapy. I utilize a blend of traditional talk therapies with cutting edge, neuroscience-based help.
