Individual Counseling 

Individual counseling for anxiety, depression, stress, eating disorders, relationship distress, ADHD, PTSD, identity concerns and trauma.  We also work with clients who want to establish goals and improve their overall performance levels in various areas of their lives.  

I work with clients utilizing various theories such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Hypnotherapy, Biofeedback and Neurofeedback.  I also do extensive assessments with individuals.


Couples Counseling

Obtaining couples counseling early on, when issues first arise, can offer various benefits for individuals and relationships.  Couples commonly wait until the relationship is on its last legs, or they come in when they are ready to check out of the relationship or when they want to say they tried everything including counseling but have already made up their mind to leave.  Here are some advantages of seeking couples counseling in the early stages of challenges:

1.  Prevent Escalation of Issues

2.  Improves Communication and Problem-Solving Skills

3.  Builds a Strong Foundation & Clarifies Expectations

4.  Increased Self-Awareness

5.  Promotes Emotional Connection &  Increased Intimacy

6.  Preventative Measure for Future Issues

7.  Stress Reduction & Encourages a positive perspective

8.  Learn Healthy Relationship Patterns


A quantitative EEG (QEEG) is an assessment tool to evaluate a person’s brainwaves. The QEEG assists us in knowing if there are abnormalities in brain function that EEG neurofeedback might be helpful in treating, and lets us know how we can individualize neurofeedback to the unique problems of each patient. Some clinicians guess at what is wrong based entirely on described symptoms   We listen and we look at your brain waves to determine what is going on and how best to treat it. 


Neurofeedback, also known as EEG (electroencephalogram) biofeedback, is a therapeutic intervention that provides immediate feedback from a computer-based program that assesses a client’s brainwave activity. The program then uses sound or visual signals to reorganize or retrain these brain signals. By responding to this process, clients learn to regulate and improve their brain function and to alleviate symptoms of various neurological and mental health disorders.

Neurofeedback  heals the brain. Psychotherapy heals the mind. Together, neurofeedback and psychotherapy can create lasting change and recovery. Neurofeedback improves brain function so you can better engage in the psychotherapy process and make more conscious, healthy decisions for yourself.

Neurofeedback, also known as EEG Biofeedback, offers an additional treatment option for people with eating disorders, addictions, mood disorders, anxiety and attention deficit disorder.  Neurofeedback is also great for improving performance.   Neurofeedback has been around since the 1960's but it has not yet gained huge traction as a mainstream intervention, primarily because the pharmaceutical industry holds the market on medication interventions. In addition, Neurofeedback equipment is expensive, so many clinicians shy away from using it.  Also many clinicians shy away from neurofeedback due to the extensive amount of training that is needed to become proficient.  Neurofeedback brain training allows your brain to heal itself.

EMDR Therapy

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health. If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.

Individual Hypnotherapy

During hypnosis therapy you are guided into a relaxed state. As you relax, your brain waves slow. Suggestions are able to bypass the ever vigilant amygdala, or gatekeeper, and be delivered to the subconscious and superconscious mind, which are now receptive to new programming.

With slower brain waves comes a heightened state of concentration and focus. You are very aware of the visualizations and suggestions being made. You may feel as though you are more of an observer of thought and images instead of being a part of them.

In this state of deep suggestibility and concentration, the statements bypass the intellectual barriers of the left brain and make their way into the creative right brain. When your brain absorbs what the hypnotherapist says, the words will begin to guide your behavior.

These suggestions, implanted as images and words, help you let go of old negative or limiting patterns, beliefs and feelings, some of which you aren't even aware of. They are replaced with positive and affirming suggestions, creative ideas, and new insights aligned with what you want. It is much like overwriting an outdated computer program with an upgraded version.
