Certified Biofeedback Specialist CBS/ Certified Homeopathic-Therapeutic Consultant, Health & Wellness Coach. My background includes 44 years in the field of human services, working with special needs children as a foster parent and operating a corporate group home for adults with developmental disabilities. 


After discovering Biofeedback Therapy through the course of my own health journey, I have been inspired that it is imperative that the awareness of the benefits of Stress Reduction through the support of Quantum Biofeedback be more widely recognized and promoted.  It is my goal in this practice to provide the opportunity for individuals to experience stress reduction to enhance their ongoing efforts to achieve maximum self-wellness goals.
