Get Unstuck.

Invest in Yourself

Come Alive!

Are you in chronic physical or emotional pain that is getting in the way of your relationships, your career success, or your overall happiness?
You CAN elevate your mood, calm anxiety, and increase energy. You CAN improve your cognitive functioning, motivation, and motor skills. You CAN finally get out of pain.

Meet with me from anywhere.

Your emotional health is just as important as your physical health.  Telehealth sessions are available for residents of CA and CT.

What’s Good to Know about Telehealth

Telehealth is a way to provide healthcare using telecommunications technologies.  If you are used to having in-person sessions it can take a little time to familiarize yourself with the technology, and to get used to online sessions.  

 

I encourage you to discuss logistics with me in advance of a session.  We can discuss what sessions will look like, how to connect, and how payment will work. 

 

Online therapy can be just as helpful as in person sessions.  If you have any discomfort with how it works I encourage you to let me know and we can discuss how it is impacting your experience.  

Some benefits:
  • It can be easier to access care

  • Reduces time spent driving

  • It allows for more scheduling options for the both of us

  • More convenience, you can have a session from the comfort of your home or office

  • You can attend sessions even if you are away from home

  • No risk of infection

Potential risks:

  • There may be interruptions at the start of a session, or during a session, due to technology glitches.  Because of potential issues with technology it’s important to have a back-up plan, like agreeing to switch to the phone 

  • Things occurring in their environment can distract clients  

  • There may be a risk of privacy violations (that is a risk when you use any technology)

  • This is not appropriate for all populations, including high risk clients, clients who are experiencing suicidal thoughts, or are psychologically very unstable

Some practical things to consider to prepare for your online session:

  • Find a private space with a closed door

  • Create a physical environment that feels comfortable

  • Close open windows on your computer and put your phone away and on silent to minimize distractions

  • Discuss with me what will happen if we get disconnected

  • Be as close to your router as possible

  • Anticipate some hiccups, most occasional tech issues can be handled with some patience and humor

Treatment Modalities

In our first meeting we will talk about your symptoms and your current life stressors. We will work together to determine a plan for you to cope and feel better. After careful assessment I will present appropriate treatment options. My approach is based on respect, collaboration and empowerment in the treatment process.

LENS

Neurofeedback

The LENS is a unique, effective and safe form of neurotherapy that facilitates changes in people of all ages with a wide variety of presenting issues. As a result, it has the capacity to address numerous symptoms and deficits.

EMDR

EMDR stands for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. It is a powerful way to get the brain to learn much more quickly than usual, which makes possible both rapid realizations about essential truths about a situation or event.

 

DNMS

DNMS (Developmental Needs-Meeting Strategy) uniquely combines concepts from ego-state therapy, developmental theory and EMDR into a powerful system of assessment and intervention.

You are invited to watch this award winning documentary about how a professional snowboarder recovered from PTSD using LENS neurofeedback and EMDR. This is a true story and is 17 minutes long.
