This image captures wonderfully the labor of brick making. The detail of the wooden cast that was formed and now becomes the mold for clay, brought about from the mixing of the water and the dirt, specifically located to be sufficient as a cold stone or a fired stone masonry, the filling and mov...

Helping Clients Live Better Since 2005.

About the practice   
After years of treating anxiety, couples, depression and PTSD my practice remains very eclectic. With hypnosis and rapid resolution to directive and cognitive challenges, clients get better here and sooner.  Your treatment plan, which you can review, has as its goal - your goals - and your care is structured to that end. What works for one person may not be the exact fit for another.  With free initial consultations, new DC clients seeking face to face services can learn more about the practice before deciding to begin!

Using current social technology such as strengths based, neuro-biological paradigms, pragmatic experiential methods, solutions focused, cognitive restructuring and more - clients simply do better here!  From direct mental health to concierge services, from in office sessions to onsite meetings plus online services, from traditional to non-traditional styles my clients' lives improve.  

Each of my clients also have their own online digital portal (HIPAA compliant and secure) empowering them to connect both synchronously and asynchronously - 24 hours a day. With a full suite of online services people can reach out at anytime! Scheduling options can be individualized too (outside of the published availability).  

And with some of the highest Healthgrades client evaluations in the US, and a few cool Yelp reviews, even the most challenging work appears to produce results that clients favor.  Getting better, being happier ... it begins here!
