I have great reverence for a Divine creator who instilled the ability to heal in each living thing. In my practice, I use modalities that allow me to witness people healing both physical and emotional wounds. This process is a marvel to me. Objects do not have this curative ability, only living things. People can rise above their circumstances. I don’t pretend to know the details of how the body repairs itself. Yet, I witness the results almost daily. I love seeing people progress.
Each person is unique. They have their own combination of genetics, experiences, environmental, and personal characteristics, etc. A client comes with goals they want to achieve, and through the use of neurofeedback, ART, Heartmath, etc, I work with people, not diagnoses. I see them become more like the person they want to be. The client’s brain does the work. Through neurofeedback, I have the technology to allow a person’s brain to observe its own brainwaves and by doing so, the brain can alter itself, using it’s own innate wisdom. Neurofeedback can help stabilize the central nervous system, and thereby make other modalities of treatment more effective. Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) reduces or eliminates the intensity of emotional reactions as it changes the brain’s imagery of an event. Heartmath principles calm the body and mind.
Neurofeedback is a specialized form of biofeedback where the brain learns to work more efficiently through the direct training of brain function. This allows for the relief of emotional and brain-based symptoms. As the brain controls your emotional well-being, psychological health and every system in your body, training it into better function has far reaching benefits.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)
From the ART website we read: “ART is a form of psychotherapy that utilizes eye movements to help clients address common problems such as depression, anxiety, phobias and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In Accelerated Resolution Therapy, a client can focus on a problem while concurrently using eye movements. During this process, the brain makes new connections with a person’s strengths and problem-solving abilities. It produces quick and effective results. ART is effective with adults as well as children.” read more
Heartmath is another useful biofeedback tool. It focuses on increasing coherence, which is the synchrony between the heart, brain, and lungs. This goes beyond deep breathing. It is a total body experience that is calming and centering. read more
