MA, LPC, BCB, BCN
I am dual board certified by BCIA in Neurofeedback (BCN) and Biofeedback (BCB), and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Michigan, Texas, and Virginia. I did my graduate work in Virginia at Regent University, where I first trained as a neurotherapist nearly a decade ago. I continue to be humbled by how impactful Neurotherapy can be in transforming lives and moving people forward. When combined with psychotherapy, it is an even more powerful modality for change.
I enjoy working with children and adults who have neurodevelopmental disorders such as Attention Deficit (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD); Anxiety Disorders including Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Social Anxiety, Phobias, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); developmental trauma, academic and work related problems, addictions, sleep problems, pain disorders, head/brain injury, age-related cognitive decline, pain disorders, migraines, and other problems. The good news is mental health is brain health. We can all benefit from optimizing our brains. Feel free to call or email me so we can work together to enhance your brain health and improve your quality of life.
Working in conjunction with the brain as it learns to self-regulate through neurotherapy, the mind is the focus of psychotherapy. As the brain learns to self-regulate, the mind learns to process and use cognitive coping in an incredible manner. Psychotherapy or “talk therapy” cannot be under-appreciated. My approach to psychotherapy is a collaborative effort between the client and therapist. The approach would be considered eclectic in that I use a cognitive-behavioral theory (CBT) base with various types of therapies and techniques to achieve the agreed upon goals of therapy.--
