Biofeedback

Biofeedback is a technique used to gain awareness of involuntary physiological functions (such as your heart rate, blood pressure or skin temperature), with a goal of being able to manipulate them at will. The idea behind biofeedback is that if you use the power of your mind and to become aware of what's going on inside your body, you can gain more control over your health. Biofeedback is considered a mind-body technique. Biofeedback therapy will focus on teaching clients how to better control the body’s involuntary responses to facilitate improved health.

I am Board Certified in Neurofeedback and have been practicing it since 2010. I have the capacity to do various types of neurofeedback training, but my primary intervention is Infraslow Fluctation (ISF) Neurofeedback. This type of neurofeedback influences the slowest waves produced by the brain. These brainwaves are instrumental in regulating a multitude of physiological functions, including sleep, emotional regulation and attention networks. This type of training can promote global, lasting changes to the brain.

Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback focuses on treating an overactive "fight or flight" system, so that when you feel your anxiety go into overdrive, you have the tools to physiologically bring down your anxiety. You can actually control your heart rhythms! Athletes, musicians, olympians and others utilize these very same techniques to help them achieve peak performance.

I use Neurofeedback and HRV to help my clients be in control of their attention, emotions and energy levels. A lot of therapy is spent teaching clients how to regulate these processes, with Neurofeedbak and HRV people can achieve these goals much faster, which then allows therapy to be more productive. Clients report less reactivity, better focus, less energy and mood ups and downs and better sleep.

Biofeedback is a fancy word for describing any object that provides information to you about yourself. So, stepping on a scale is a form of biofeedback. Looking into a mirror is biofeedback. During in-person sessions, I can provide a heart rate variability monitor that can be used as a source of biofeedback and can assist you in learning self-regulation skills. Believe it or not, you can control your heart rate! Sometimes seeing a bit of evidence is all we need to believe in ourselves.
