Counseling and Psychotherapy

I provide you a safe and compassionate environment so that you can face whatever issue is preventing you from being the person you want to be.  Life is unpredictable and challenging.  Everyone struggles.  Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, past trauma, substance abuse, anger, or relationship issues, I can help you change patterns that have you feeling stuck and unhappy.  My goal is to help you discover your strengths and move forward in your life.  I utilize a variety of modalities and together we will discover what is most helpful to you.  The exciting developments of neuroscience show us that our brains can change no matter how old we are.  You can feel more resilient and flexible in dealing with life's challenges.  There is hope.  


I am also excited to offer Neurofeedback.  Neurofeedback is exercise for the brain that allows you to train your brain to self regulate, becoming more flexible and more stable.  It helps you to become more calm and less reactive.  A more stable brain means a more stable life.
