Introduction:
Psychophysiology is actually simple.... What you think effects your brain chemistry and your mental/physical well-being. Most people today don't take time to listen to their bodies about staying healthy. For over 25 years, I've combined counseling and biofeedback to create a unique approach that shows clients how to connect their emotions to what happens in their bodies. This powerful combination has proven effective with anxiety, headaches, asthma, heart disease, pain, IBS, TMJ, eating disorders, and many other stress-related disorders.

Biofeedback and psychophysiology use sophisticated instruments to monitor an individual's tension levels by measuring heart rate, muscle tension, sweat gland activity, and skin temperature. The goal is to learn to recognize your stress response, and through this feedback, develop new skills, and change your habitual response to problems.

I offer warm and nurturing guidance on your path towards greater wellness. I have a strong belief in strength perspective therapy, that listening is a art, and that laughter heals. Whatever your burden, together we can create a plan to achieve your goal. "Happiness depends upon ourselves." ~Aristotle~
