We take pride in our unique comprehensive therapy approach. Our therapeutic strengths go beyond talk-therapy by combining the most advanced psychotherapy techniques with the latest Neurofeedback methods such as High Frequency, Infra-Low Frequency Training, Synchrony, and Alpha-Theta Training.
Combining Neurofeedback within psychotherapy is a transformational approach to rapidly increase the brain's neuroplasticity and nervous system regulation. With ongoing “brain training,” you can expect to go into deeper restful sleep, significantly reduce anxiety and depression, improve attention, focus and concentration. Neurofeedback can work along with medications or is an alternative to medication.

"I believe psychotherapy is a place where you can come and be as you are, free to explore the fulness of yourself, a safe place to meet yourself. I will be there with you to provide the space and opportunity for change and improvement by giving voice to the areas of your life that have remained silent, to assist you in achieving a sense of authenticity and uniqueness. Through psychotherapy you can speak freely, without shame and fear and gradually within your own words another meaning forms and takes the pain and symptom with it. You don’t have to suffer isolated and in silence, through the therapeutic work you would find the ways to overcome the inhibition and the barriers on your path toward well-being and success. When you start psychotherapy there is no reason for despair, you can set out a new path."
