Chronic Pain

My interest in chronic pain has grown directly from my expertise in PTSD. Anxiety, depression, stress, and pain are intimately linked in the brain. This is not to say anyone is “making up” pain. In fact, having a brain sensitized to pain makes it all the more intense and real. My approach combines the latest research in neuroplasticity with the time-proven techniques of mindfulness. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to change and grow. People experiencing chronic pain have larger areas of their brain dedicated to pain as a result. Neuroplasticity explains how you can use this ability of the brain to change to your advantage and greatly reduce the amount of pain you feel. I have helped clients stop needing to take pain medication altogether.
