Treatment Overview

Following an initial comprehensive psychological evaluation, I will work with you to design a treatment plan specific to your goals. In my experience, I have found that psychotherapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy when combined with or independent of biofeedback, neurofeedback, audio visual entrainment and stress management are very effective to achieving mental, emotional and physical balance.  After your comprehensive evaluation, a treatment plan will be selected and discussed with you. 

 

There are many different types of therapy.  While each may vary in its approach, all have the common goal to lessen mental and emotional distress.Typically, these therapies focus on either the mind or the body. As I understand that one size does not fit all, my approach distinguishes me from other therapiist by treating the whole person with a comprehensive, mind/body integrative treatment approach.

It is of paramount importance to understand that stress is the engine that causes or aggravates mental, emotional and physical/medical symptoms and conditions.

The following is a partial selection and a brief description of the treatments I offer:

 

Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is amoung the types of treatment recommended for depression, anxiety, insomnia, and life conflicts. Called "therapy" for short, the word psychotherapy actually involves a variety of treatment techniques. During psychotherapy, a person talks to a licensed and trained mental health care professional that helps him or her identify and work through the factors that may be causing them mental and emotional distress.
Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback training is becoming increasingly popular due to its powerful, non-medication approach that effectively reduces the symptoms of ADHD, depression, anxiety, and many other conditions. Neurofeedback has its basis in applied neuroscience and data-based clinical practice. It meets the American Psychological Association's definition of an evidence based intervention.

Neurofeedback addresses problems due to brain dysregulation that can be associated with anxiety, depression, attention deficit, behavioral disorders, various sleep disorders, headaches, and emotional disturbances.
Biofeedback
Many clinical conditions can be treated with biofeedback because, interestingly, many problems brought to physicians tend to be stress-related. Biofeedback is an approach that enables you "feed" information back to your mind about the numerous minute changes your body goes through every instant. Biofeedback training can help you to control your body and to control many physical, mental, and behavioral symptoms.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy assists in identifying and changing unproductive thought patterns by having you observe your thoughts and feelings. You will become better able to separate realistic from unrealistic and distorted thoughts. Thinking drives our emotions, beliefs, and behaviors. Faulty thoughts lead to faulty and distressing feelings and behaviors. With cognitive behavioral training, you will be better able to lessen anxiety, depression, worry, rumination, and racing thoughts.
Heart Brain/Body Coherence Training
Research provides support for the role that physiological mechanisms play in regulating the mind, body and emotions. This regulation influences our state of mental emotional and physical wellness. Research consistently illustrates that heart rate variability measures a person's ability to adapt to life challenges. This is the most dynamic reflection of our inner states of wellness. Several techniques help to balance the emotions and mind. By using the techniques a person can observe the changes of heart rhythm that provides a picture about the balance of your nervous system.
