I practice an in-depth holistic psychotherapy process to address the root causes of difficulties. I believe that within you is a wise authentic self that can activate your healing. I would be honored in guiding you to awaken this authentic self to allow you to transform your life, your relationships and yourself in a deep and meaningful way.
I make use of an integrative approach to fit my client’s unique needs and circumstances. My psychotherapeutic method facilitates healing through a process of integration of past trauma. Trauma can be explained as any distressing event that overwhelms an individual’s capacity to cope. Unintegrated past trauma remains with us in the present, resulting in repetitive negative patterns restricting our potential and freedom to live our lives as we desire. Psychotherapy is aimed at liberating this potential by releasing the effects of traumatic experience from our system. All the diagnoses out there, whether depression, anxiety or even psychosis, are significantly rooted in trauma. They are manifestations of trauma.

Assessment is a term that describes the use of various testing tools to gather objective information about an individual. A psychological assessment involves the use of various techniques to determine or identify an individual’s emotional functioning, intellectual ability, neuropsychological functioning, and personality structure. Assessment typically involves collecting data from a number of sources. This includes an initial assessment interview and the administration, scoring, and interpretation of particular standardized and established psychological tests. It may also include a review of previous testing, consultation with teachers, therapists, family, or any other relevant individuals.
Each assessment is different and the tests used are selected according to the specific reasons you have come in for testing. The goal of assessment is to identify
I offer cognitive, neuropsychological and personality assessment.
Typically, neuropsychological assessments are employed to assess and diagnose for the following possible disorders:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) (motor vehicle accidents, falls, sport-related concussions)
- Degenerative brain disorders/Dementia (Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease)
- Other progressive disorders (Multiple Sclerosis, drug- and alcohol-related disorders)
- Cerebrovascular accidents (strokes)
- Seizure disorders
- Capacity Evaluations: Can be completed to determine if an individual has the ability to make a variety of decisions or execute a variety of behaviors (e.g. capacity to live independently, financial capacity, etc.)
Personality Assessment involves the administration scientifically supported measures of personality traits and styles in order to aid clinical diagnosis for more effective treatment decision-making. Personality tests provide measures of such characteristics as feelings and emotional states, preoccupations, motivations, attitudes, and approaches to interpersonal relations.
