I am a licensed clinical psychologist who provides psychotherapy, neurofeedback, and coaching services to people of all ages. I taught psychology at the undergraduate and graduate level for over 15 years so it was a natural progression to add coaching and Psychoeducational classes to my practice. I also enjoy writing and focus my efforts on topics related to parenting, ADHD, homeschooling, the impact of media on mental health, and personal growth.
I utilize my various skills and techniques to develop an individualized treatment plan for each client to address the following issues:
- Children and family concerns
- Cognitive changes
- Grief and loss
- Maximizing performance
- Personal growth
- Sleep problems
- Stress management
- Study habits
Neurotherapy is essentially EEG biofeedback for the brain and uses monitoring devices to provide real-time data to a person about his or her brainwave patterns, thus opening the door to change them. Neurofeedback is like training a muscle, these changes become stronger with practice.
Each of us is both uniquely skilled and uniquely challenged. The saying “Utilize your strengths and exercise your weaknesses” rings true for us all. Effectively working with our own areas of challenge is a skill that can be learned and results in improved performance.
My career has included a focus on working with children and families and an emphasis on teenagers. Although I have worked with clients of various ages, I am comfortable working with families and I believe that when treating children and teens, family involvement is key to lasting change.
Psychological coaching is a short-term task-based service that is focused on performance. Coaches and clients work together to develop specific behavioral mileposts and goals, as well as a plan to reach them. Both are actively involved in the coaching process and actively collaborate to achieve success.
Over the many years in which I have worked with attention challenged individuals, I discovered numerous tools that enable people to live more happily & successfully without medication. ADHD Connections is the product of this research and experience.
