My practice focuses on helping patients achieve the goals they set for themselves whiles increasing their awareness of the mind-body connection so that they can manager physical manifestations (such as headaches, stomach aches, arthritis) of stress at the same time that they resolve current issues negatively affecting their daily lives. I view therapy as a partnership where we collaborate to help patients build up stress resilience so that they can cope more effectively with the challenges that life presents. My goal is to help you do this without dependence upon medications, but rather through the mastery of skills that you will be able to use throughout your life time in a variety of situations.

Neuropsychological Evaluations systematically assess how a Peron encodes, stores, retrieve and uses information in the auditory, visual, tactile, and kinesthetic modes to determine the extent and nature of any cerebral dysfunction that might be contributing to emotional, behavioral or learning problems. It serves as a baseline against which to measure progress and the basis for designing a program of intervention. These evaluations provide specific recommendations for school or work, rehabilitation, home and community.
Dementia/Depression Evaluations: These evaluations are designed to differentiate between those evidencing cognitive and behavioral changes as a function of undiagnosed depression or dementia.
Quantitative EEG Evaluations compare an individual's brain wave patterns under various conditions to a database of normal healthy brains. This permits us to identify if any areas of the brains are not working effectively, in which bandwidths the abnormalities are, how many standard deviations out of the norm the abnormalities are, and the nature of the abnormalities. These evaluations help to differentiate whether cognitive, behavioral or emotional problems are a function of brain dysfunction and serve as the basis for designing unique programs of neurofeedback therapy to normalize brainwave patterns and improve functioning.
Psychophysiological Stress Profiles monitor an individual's physiological responses (i.e. respiration, heart rate, blood pressure, galvanic skin response, extremity temperature) under a variety of conditions to determine how a child's body reacts to stress.
