Q. What is biofeedback and when is it used?

A. Biofeedback is a way to see your physiological stress responses, typically on a computer screen, and learn how to influence them. There are many different modalities of biofeedback, that can be used to influence: heart rate variability, respiration, sweat, skin temperature, muscle tension, and even brain wave activity. Tim views biofeedback as one of many 'tools' at his [...]

Q. What are ongoing meetings like?

A. Ongoing meetings usually happen weekly, are typically 55 minutes (or sometimes half that for mental performance coaching), and they're typically guided by you, the client. Tim may check in on themes or loose ends, and may be more directive with performance coaching, but typically the focus is up to you and it's okay not to have a plan [...]

Q. What is the 1st meeting like?

A. The 'intake' is about 1.5 hours long and is a chance for you to ask more questions, and Tim will give a quick verbal summary of forms (do your reading in advance though!), plus Tim will spend most of the meeting asking questions to gather a comprehensive picture of who you are and to start charting the path [...]

Q. How do I register?

Then, you can complete registration information online, including biographical information and (if you're registering for therapy, not coaching) insurance information. Once registered, you should [...]

Q. What do I need to know about insurance?

A. Insurance only applies when we are talking about psychotherapy/counseling, and not for mental performance coaching. And, if work with Tim is primarily biofeedback, insurance likely won't cover that either. If you want to use insurance, keep in mind, that Tim is an out-of-network provider, meaning that he does not directly take insurance. However, he'll make it a little [...]

Q. What is the difference between therapy/counseling and performance coaching?

A. You can think of the three on a continuum, and you could even add sport/fitness coaching to that continuum. Psychotherapy is diving deeper, often not just understanding how the past affects you now, but also emotionally working through this difficult stuff. Counseling can overlap with therapy but is often very present focused, directive, and action-oriented. For simplicity, Tim [...]
