My Always Evolving Philosophy

       In my first years as a licensed psychotherapist, I often became frustrated with the traditional process of analysis. I would work with intelligent people who were fully aware of why they were still engaging in whatever the problem or unwanted behavior was. Whether it was repeating the same unhealthy relationship over and over again or knowing what triggers them, clients knew why it was happening but couldn't break the cycle.

‚Äč

       The more I tried to figure out how to help break the cycle, the more I realized how it is related to how our brain functions and reacts in a preconscious way to stimuli. For example, have you ever blurted something out and, almost in the same moment, tried to cover your mouth in an effort to stop yourself? It’s because the same part of your brain that keeps you safe is also the part that will react before you are consciously aware of what it's about to do.

 

       Fortunately, there are techniques and therapies that allow us to intervene at a preconscious level so that we can literally create new responses to the same triggers. I find clients feel a sense of freedom when they find out that they can retrain behaviors that were once unhealthy. It makes sense to me that, if our minds are conditioned or wired to react a certain way, then it can also be re-conditioned to act in a healthier way. I know that gives me a sense of relief as we learn so many lessons throughout life unintentionally.  Now we can intentionally change for the better.

 

       I start with a client-centered approach where I utilize evidence based treatments to help my clients experience relief, peace, and success. I love meeting people, exploring how they define their goals, and then doing everything I can to help them achieve them.

 

       I work with people of all ages within my specializations of anxiety, depression, OCD, stress reduction, procrastination, relationships, tinnitus, and chronic illness. I have found that the tools I use are also very effective with ADHD, improved focus, sports enhancement and career advancement.
