Biofeedback is a technique you can use to learn to control your body’s functions, such as your heart rate. With biofeedback you are connected electrical sensors that help you receive information (feedback) about your body (bio). We can gain greater awareness to improve health, performance, and physiological changes that occur in conjunction with changes to thoughts emotions and behavior. With training the changes may be maintained without use of the biofeedback equipment.
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is a method for assessing the effects of stress on your body. HRV is measured the time gap between your heart beats that varies as you breath in and out.

“Our son was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, and we tried everything...with no results. We decided to give neurofeedback a try. After only 10 sessions, we saw remarkable changes in our son. His moods were more regulated, and he seemed calmer and happier. With time, his sense of humor developed, and he experienced less anxiety in social environments. I can’t say enough about the positive experience we had working with Nicole and utilizing neurofeedback.”
“I’ve suffered from depression and anxiety much of my life. When my husband and I decided to have a child, I chose to discontinue my medications to avoid dependency. We came to Nicole to see what neurofeedback could do. Within a few weeks of treatment, I felt in control of my emotions. The world was a calmer and safer place. My husband, originally skeptical of the therapy, cannot say enough positive things about Nicole or neurofeedback.”
“My daughter was struggling with an eating disorder. She had been in and out of treatment centers, spending as much as six months at a time in a facility. We’d exhausted every ‘trial and error’ method of prescribing medications. We felt hopeless. We lived in a very dark place. We contacted Nicole in a desperate attempt to help our daughter. The results were nothing short of miraculous. Her anxiety and depression are very much under control, and our daughter is reconnected both with herself and with the world. She exhibits confidence and optimism. For the first time on this road to recovery...we have hope.”
