My Philosophy: Everyone can learn a more effective way of managing their life, their job, their family. All it takes is good enough knowledge, the will to change, time, effort, practice, and encouragement. In individual sessions, group workshops and speaking engagements I teach people how to create positive change for themselves and their loved ones. Using a combination of techniques gathered from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Short-term Psychodynamic Therapy, Mindfulness Training, Life Coaching, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Neuropsychological Rehabilitation I help individuals and groups learn, develop and practice effective strategies for becoming more calm, capable and connected.

Specialties include:

-Parenting/family issues
-Anxiety Management
-Coping with learning/functioning challenges (ADHD/LD/TBI)
-Technology Management
-Chronic pain/illness

It’s never too late to learn skills for positive change.
