As an innovative, interactive therapist, my treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. I am a Certified Traumatic Stress Specialist, often dealing with complex trauma (that includes the physical, emotional and cognitive disruptions from various accidents - including brain injury, stroke and/or neuro-degenerative disease, as well as traumas and life threatening incidents).
For an individual's situation, I blend several appropriate traditional and alternative therapies: neo-Jungian analysis. cognitive-behavioral therapy, medical hypnosis, 'Voice Dialog,' EMDR, Family Systems therapy, and neurofeedback (using Neurocybernetics since 1997, as of 2008 I have been using Cygent's low-frequency training with even better results!). I conduct comprehensive clinical evaluations for determination of disability in children, adolescents, and adults, many of whom have complex and challenging situations.
For those with interest in the neuroscience research ... you may be interested to know that I am the author of "Flight, Flight, Freeze: The Implication of the Passive Fear Response" (published in 1987) and that over the past two decades I have been researching the neuro-biology of spiritual experience.
I am not currently accepting new patients. Previously, in order to take a new person into my practice, I would need a referral from another provider ... such as a physician, therapist, or attorney. Sometimes I would accept a referral from another patient of mine. I accept very few insurance plans. And to repeat, I am not currently taking any new patients into my practice.
