Too many people suffer from care that is either causing harm or missing critical wellness steps.  I have seen close friends and relatives suffer needlessly through treatments that, in the end, did not work.  If you are wanting a path that strengthens your own body's ability to heal, then I want to help you.  Your body is amazing and your life and family deserve the best possible care. 


Biofeedback is a method of learning to control one's bodily functions by monitoring measurements of muscle tension, heart rate, breathing or other functions.  The individual receives feedback about current function so that subtle, positive changes can be made.  Biofeedback is helpful in reducing pain including headaches, improving sleep, reducing anxiety, improving digestive function, and decreasing the side effects of chemotherapy.

Neurofeedback is a specialized kind of biofeedback that monitors your brainwaves and works to address the underlying issues of poor brain health. This treatment has been used for many decades to effectively treat headaches, sleep issues, anxiety, depression, digestive concerns, ADHD, cognitive impairment, brain injury, concussions, and the effects of chemotherapy or radiation. Studies have shown that neurofeedback is particularly effective in addressing the “brain fog” often known as “chemobrain” that may accompany cancer treatment.
