STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

Transformation through Self-regulation
~ Professionalism, Caring and Value


“I believe that everyone has the right to feel healthy and energetic. Stress often interferes with this; it doesn't have to be that way. A warm, professional atmosphere and a variety of bio-behavioral techniques can provide just the support necessary to help people be the very best they can be. I am personally in recovery from a 13 year Migraine headache and anxiety condition; biofeedback and counseling helped me to put this debilitating set of symptoms into remission without the use of medications. I am a living testimonial to the effectiveness of the complementary therapeutic approach to health.

A combination of bio-behavioral and psychodynamic, creative approaches are used in therapy sessions. My education and training in Biofeedback, Psychophysiology, Creative Arts Therapy and Counseling offer a broad array of tools to use in my work with people. Each person is assessed and treated based on their unique needs.

Symptoms treated include: Anxiety, weight/stress management, Migraine and Tension Headache, ADD/ADHD, High Blood Pressure, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chronic Pain, and tension related to Pregnancy, Labor, Delivery and stress-related Infertility and; more. I also work with individuals and groups for: wellness, stress management, peak performance and performance enhancement.”
