Areas of clinical specialization include attention training, neuromuscular re-education, relaxation training, stress management, relapse prevention, pain control, personal growth, and creativity.
"As a biofeedback/neurofeedback therapist, I work primarily as an educator and coach. Since understanding is a vital and essential aspect of gaining control or mastery, I spend considerable time explaining physiological functions and the rationale for biofeedback and behavioral treatment approaches. As a coach, I assist in the often silent trial and error search for the inner mechanism which brings forth the desired outcome. These special moments of inner discovery and connection can be extremely exciting, fruitful, and often just plain fun."
