What type of training or certifications do you have?

 

I have a wealth of understanding of breathing and oral facial structures from my career as a Registered Dental Hygienist.  In addition, I am a Certified Buteyko Breathing Educator and a Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist.  Additional training in sleep disordered breathing, thumb sucking, and orthotropics.

 

How long/how many sessions will I need to take?

 

  Treatment is based on individual evaluation but 10 -12 therapy sessions is typical for successful outcomes.

 

Do you take insurance?

 

It depends on your plan. Few insurances cover this type of preventive treatment. However, if you have a HSA account, you can normally get reimburstment.

Where will the sessions take place?

 

Regular office visits are available in Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Francisco.  Occasionally, other arrangements can be made.
