Behavioral Health Associates
My clinical work has focused on providing service for adult and adolescent with special emphasis on behavioral medicine, biofeedback, neurofeedback, and Cognitive Behavioral Approach. When I work with clients, I create an environment where you can find your strengths and help my clients define a sense of self. My view of a successful therapy is helping you to find alternative healthy coping skills and help you to gain a sense of self-worth.
