Communication, Conflict & Resolution Lab
(CCR Lab)

Using a novel approach, we use scientifically proven, natural, and noninvasive ways to help you become a better communicator and reduce your overall stress. 

Better Communication for Couples
We track your mental activity, heart rate, breathing, and body movements. 

Mindful communication is a technique that we will teach you and your spouse in conjunction with facilitating effective communication. We help you with emotional reactivity, defensiveness, and your body's responses to stimuli during a communicative exchange. We'll provide you with real-time reports from your brain and body activity, as well as practical ways for implementing at-home techniques. One of the CCR Lab goals is to help couples learn how to control their thoughts, emotions, and responses during a conversation. 

​​Some benefits are: 

  • Increased emotional intelligence

  • Reduced emotional reactivity

  • Reduction in negative thinking

  • Increased empathy

  • Increased emotional resilience

  • Greater self-awareness

Stress Reduction & Management for Individuals

$50 Per Session (30 minutes)

Using biofeedback technology, we help you gain control over your racing thoughts, irregular breathing, distressing emotions, and anxious feelings.  By tracking your mental activity, heart rate, breathing, and body movements we help reduce stress by working with you in these three areas:

Mindfulness. Mindfulness is the practice of being aware of the moment while engaging all senses, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. It is being in the here and now. We will teach you how to calm your mood and regulate your breathing to achieve a calm state. 

 

Distress Tolerance. This is learning how to accept uncomfortable and distressful situations and emotions—being content with life. Learning how to: (1) self-soothe (2) distracting oneself, (2) improve the moment, and (3) thinking logically.

 

Emotion Regulation. Learning how to manage responses to stimuli; responding proportionally to situations. Emotional Regulation includes (1) Identifying and labeling emotion, (2) Increasing positive emotional events, (3) Identifying obstacles to changing emotions, and (4) Reducing vulnerability to negative emotions.

Nutrition, Sleeping, and Activity Wellness

Nutrition, sleeping, and activity are the three primary influencers of mood. We'll help you develop a plan to regulate and your emotions.
