Practice Info
Looking for therapy that's caring, practical, effective, and goal-oriented? I have 25 years experience in counseling adults, teens, and children. And, if you wish, we can also integrate neurofeedback training into our work together. Neurofeedback uses the EEG (which neurologists also use) to teach you to change problematic brainwave patterns. I've written three books, including a new one on enhancing brain function, and taught biofeedback at San Francisco State University. Specialties include: anxiety, depression, ADD, addictions, PTSD/trauma, OCD, couples and family issues,concussion and brain injury, stroke, memory/cognitive issues, and sleep problems.

I love my work and genuinely respect my clients. I've also consulted for over 120 organizations throughout the U.S. My book, Mastering the Winds of Change, was published by HarperCollins. My children's book, The Little Sailboat and the Big Storm, was published by Coming of Age Press.

What is different about what we do? Many therapists use the "uh huh, go on" approach. I'm a good listener, but I also help you to set goals and achieve them. How? Through using proven, effective tools for change that you can learn.
