Are You Stressed, Anxious, Or Overwhelmed?

Benefits Often Within 3-5 Sessions

I work with individuals, couples, and families to teach them natural and lasting solutions to improve their quality of life through proven and scientific techniques.


Fix The Root Cause

We will work together to identify the root cause of your symptoms by assessing four domains: biological, psychological, social and purpose. Most clients get significant benefit within 3-5 sessions while meeting 2-4 times per month.

Positive Change Is Possible

"My husband and I got more done in 3 sessions with Dr H than in several years of therapy with multiple therapists."


"Your work with us has done wonders, and I am so grateful. Thank you!”


"After just one neurofeedback session my wife said I was a changed man. I was more pleasant, had more energy, and I slept great that night."


"I just wanted to say thanks for the good session today. It's great to have the practical exercise. Looking forward to using it."


"Thanks for all the help this past year. Our son really does seem to be doing better in school and at keeping his mind from cycling through worries."
