OUR MISSION: To empower individuals, couples, or families to take on the challenges their lives encounter to become the most confident and capable they can become.
OUR PRACTICE: My post graduate experience was working in a private practice that contractually worked with a psychiatric practice. I gained a strong understanding of medication effects in the treatment of psychiatric conditions. My experience and training has created a need in me to look into all treatment options available to meet each client's individual needs. I seek to best understand my client's specific needs in order to provide them the best services available to them.
WHAT SETS US ABOVE THE REST: We have researched to find treatment options years beyond our competition. I am constantly looking into treatment options that are on the cutting edge of medical research and development to meet the specific needs of my clients. I want to provide the most comprehensive service options available to my clients. This is why we provide neurofeedback and Alpha-Stim treatment in my practice.
