Mind Body Spirit connection

In 2016, I began teaching the neurofeedback electives track for Masters and Doctoral students at St. Mary's University.  My students receive a firm foundation in the neuroscience and counseling theories required to become a competent neurofeedback provider, as well as hands-on experience under my supervision.

I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio and received my Master's and Doctoral Degrees from St. Mary's University. I am trained as a marriage and family therapist and have more than 20 years experience in the field since the beginning of my Master's program. You are welcome to read my curriculum vita, as well. 


I have been working with caregivers of patients with dementia of all kinds. I have a passion for working with individuals and families facing this difficult and often overwhelming situation, working to help them understand what is going on as well as helping them to find peace and balance, both with the circumstances and with their own role in caring for their loved one who is afflicted with dementia. To find information on Stress and spousal caregivers of Alzheimer's and related dementia, please feel free to read my dissertation.

On the other end of the age spectrum, I work with individuals who struggle with learning disabilities such as ADD and ADHD. I have seen young children as well as adults.


Regardless of the type of therapy appropriate for you, please know that when you make an appointment with me, it is my intention to be present for you during the whole appointment.    While some neurofeedback professionals rely on technicians to complete day-in-day-out neurofeedback sessions, I believe the the clinician's role in the neurofeedback session is paramount.

In addition to these struggles, I work with whatever issues you are dealing with. My specialties and some of my training are listed above, but if you are struggling with something that is not on this page, please give me a call. I would love to talk with you. It is my goal to either help you myself or to find someone who can help.
