I am a Registered Nurse with over 20 years of psychiatric experience in both residential and acute inpatient care settings. I have worked with all age groups and with individuals in the most acute phases of all types of mental illness, developmental disability, and learning disorders. I have managed child, adolescent and adult inpatient psychiatric units and have extensive experience with the use of psychiatric medications.

Based on my experiences as a Neurofeedback clinician, I view Neurofeedback as the current state of the art, neuroscience based approach that will allow us to more effectively treat many individuals who have struggled to have the quality of life they both desire and deserve.

I provide Quantitative EEG Evaluation (QEEG) which is a process for mapping the brain. This evaluation can help to further understand underlying neurological difficulties. This can also assist in informing the direction of Neurofeedback training and an understanding of the effective use of medications. Click here for information on QEEG in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format.
