Board Certified in Neurofeedback, BCN
I received my MSW in 1994 and have practiced in a range of settings with children, adolescents and adults suffering from a variety of stresses and forms of mental illness. My tenure as a high-school adjustment counselor gave me insight into the challenges of adolescents in our society. As a clinician in a community mental health center for many years I have worked with a broad range of clients.
A significant part of my clinical work was as a Dialectical Behavioral Therapist working with individuals and groups, teaching and coaching people in affect regulation and life skills. This background, along with my two years of seminary study, gives me a diverse and comprehensive grounding in my approach to working with the whole person: body, mind and spirit.
In my individual private practice I integrate psychotherapy and neurotherapy, including EEG, HEG and Play Attention neurofeedback, along with Nexalin Transcranial Electronic Stimulation. I place an emphasis on these powerful, yet non-invasive ways of increasing brain stability and resilience in the quest to improve my clients’ individual functioning and over all wellbeing. My psychotherapy approach is eclectic, combining a variety of therapeutic perspectives along with an emphasis on the essential nature of healthy human attachment.
Along with my individual one-on-one work, my assistants and I provider a team approach to individual and small group neurotherapy, including an innovative ilab program with Play Attention neurofeedback. Our primary goal is to be responsive to the needs of each individual client by honoring both the art and the science of the treatment we provide. We treat a diverse range of clients from children to adults, with a broad range of difficulties.
As a Board Certified Neurofeedback provider I also offer consultation and teaching in the skills of clinical neurofeedback. The Wellspring Neurotherapy office is a host site for professional trainings in the field of neurofeedback and brain training services. We are fortunate to attract national and international teachers who join us to present on the newest offerings in the field of neurotherapy.
