Mind-Body Medicine focuses on the dynamic relationships among the brain, mind, body, and behavior, and how they influence and effect health and disease. Mind-body approaches include such practices like biofeedback, mindfulness training, meditation, breathwork, yoga, guided imagery, hypnosis, progressive relaxation, and cognitive reframing.
Biofeedback is a safe, noninvasive method to teach you how to regulate the function of your mind and body, such as muscle tension and heart rate. Sensors connected to your body provide you with information in real time about how your body is functioning. With this feedback you learn to make subtle adjustments that create new psycho-physiological states and lead to such changes as better sleep, pain reduction, blood pressure regulation, improved mood, and increased focus and concentration.
Think of mind-body medicine and biofeedback as specialized training to rewire your nervous system towards health, help you discover new ways to engage with your life with ease, and to cultivate a sense of meaning and purpose. If you want to run a marathon, you train. If you want to balance your nervous system, you need to give it the same respect and dedication. This approach to health is collaborative where you actively participate in your care. Together we set goals, identify assessment measures and determine training practices to move you towards resiliency. The more you practice, the better the results.
Weekly sessions are recommended for new patients with the first appointment consisting of a comprehensive evaluation and assessment (1.5 hours). Subsequent appointments are 50 minutes. Additional appointments are scheduled as needed. For those interested specifically in HRV and Clinical Biofeedback training, 8 - 10 weekly sessions with daily home practice are recommended in order to see significant changes in symptoms and health.
In-person, phone, Skype or FaceTime appointments available.

Group workshops cover a wide array of topics, teaching mind-body approaches for stress-reduction, self-regulation and resiliency. The benefit of the group process is that it provides a safe and supportive environment for you to learn and share with others. Group workshops are offered in a variety of formats: weekly session, weekend seminars, and online webinars.

A growing body of research shows that mind-body approaches, like mindfulness training, helps reduce stress, stimulate creativity, and increase productivity at work. Corporate wellness programs allow companies to provide this valuable health benefit to their employees and has been shown to reduce overall healthcare costs. I have worked with several companies to design wellness programs specifically for their needs, as well as provided ongoing mindfulness-based stress reduction groups.
