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.
