For over 20 years I have been working individuals and families and work outside the box of traditional therapy. If what you've been doing hasn't been working, my approach may be exactly what you need.

Anxiety, depression, trauma, circumstance out of your control, marriage issues, child concerns, and/or a general sense of overwhelm can make it hard to function on a day to day basis. I have worked alongside many children, adults, couples and/or families struggling with different hardships in life and can help you process through these times. Everybody copes with their stressors in different ways, and I will guide you to cope in more healthy and productive ways. You'll find our sessions filled with compassion, grace, tears, laughter, and support to help you reach your goals and work through tough circumstances.

Along with talk therapy, Low Energy Neurofeedback (LENS) is offered as an additional service, which I have successfully used since 2013. LENS is used to optimize brain health, resulting in improved self regulation with about 85% of clients. I have also found that LENS, combined with Brainspotting to be extremely successful in working through the deep rooted issues.

Life throws a lot of challenges our way and we aren't meant to walk through those challenges alone. At some point in your life you will find yourself, a loved one, or your family struggling with hardships. When this happens, I am here to support you through it.
