“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
– C. G. Jung
Psychotherapy and neurofeedback can help alleviate and resolve symptoms associated with many mental health conditions. Although diagnosis is required for insurance reimbursement for psychotherapy, it is not the sole focus of my work with you. While attending to your symptoms, I also look beyond those symptoms to understand you as a person and to work with what is of deepest concern to you. I understand your symptoms in the larger context of your past, present, and what you want for the future, while drawing on your innate strengths and resilience. While psychotherapy addresses the psychological elements of any clinical issue, neurofeedback addresses the underlying nervous system dysregulation that often drives those issues.
There are many different clinical issues I have helped clients address over the years.
Clients also seek support to resolve non-clinical, “normative,” developmental life concerns, transitions, and shifts in identity. These concerns do not necessarily fit the clear-cut parameters of a particular diagnosis and do not, at their core, represent “pathology,” but an innate drive toward health and wholeness.
These issues may also involve negotiating an unexpected and difficult stressor, such as physical illness or the loss of a relationship, or may involve optimizing areas of your life, such as creativity, work satisfaction, or finding meaning and fulfillment. Addressing these types of life concerns gives you the intentional space to look inward and attend to what is of most importance to you and, out of that, find a direction that suits your values and desires. Psychotherapy can provide the context for creative growth – where dreams can be explored and life’s challenges can be met with curiosity. Neurofeedback can support peak performance by optimizing the nervous system’s functioning.
There are many different kinds of life concerns I have helped clients address over the years. Here is a partial, non-exhaustive list that we might address depending on your unique needs.
