Bob Whitehouse Bio

Dr. Bob Whitehouse, EdD, Licensed Psychologist, Board Certified in Biofeedback, BCIA Senior Fellow, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, Diplomate, American Academy of Pain Management.

Dr. Bob Whitehouse is a licensed psychologist, educator, consultant, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, and is board certified in biofeedback and in pain management. He first envisioned holistic health centers in 1984 as an expansion of his own center, then at the historic Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs in Colorado, near Aspen and Vail.

Dr. Whitehouse has been in the field of psychology since 1969, first as a rehabilitation counselor, then professor of psychology for 15 years and founder in 1974 of one of the first college biofeedback programs, then in private practice as a psychologist, biofeedback specialist and leader, sport psychology professor, consultant, and presenter around the world on special findings about the heart, breath, gratitude and love.

A former board member and Insurance and Legislative chair of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, he has given briefings to members of Congress and national decision makers, and was awarded two distinguished service awards for service in biofeedback.

Dr. Whitehouse is trained in evaluating our breathing through Capnometry which measures the breathing chemistry and lets us know when we are breathing efficiently. Here science and real physiological feedback dispels the many myths we have acquired about our breathing. The same biofeedback instrument (the CapnoTrainer) displays our heart rate variability (HRV) and heart waves and one can be coached on its use over the internet. Dr. Bob is partnered with Jacques Kelly, RN in, a business offering local and over-the-internet individual sessions, group programs and seminars on breathing, HRV, and wellness. He has also developed a Heart Rate Variability and Flexibility training and certification program for those who want to help others attain what research now reveals to be an ideal heart rate pattern with many health, cognitive, and emotional benefits. Dr. Whitehouse not only trains therapists and coaches, but works with individuals and gives seminars on the benefits and how to get the desired patterns of heart and breath. With Dr. Rob Ivker, D.O. he is co-authoring YOUR HEALING HEART: Harnessing Heart Energy to Heal Your Body, Mind and Soul.

Dr. Bob has a deep understanding of special qualities of heart and breath, and how this relates to the metaparadigm of how the principles of Body, Emotions, Spirit and Thoughts (what he calls our BEST team) relate to the depth levels and developmental stages of our evolutionary human potentials. He is writing a book on this called The TORUS Project, With Heart and Breath, Live Only Love.

Dr. Whitehouse is the happy father of 4 and grandfather of 2 so far. He is often teaching around the world on ways to bring the heart and breath into coherence and resonance. He lives in Louisville, CO just outside of Boulder and has offices there and in Denver.

He was advisor to his former student who co-created the popular interactive biofeedback heart rate game Journey to the Wild Divine, and Healing Rhythms. He also has spoken on the HeartMath program about uses of their research, techniques, and heart rate biofeedback instrument and games.

Dr. Whitehouse’s motto is: OPT for the BEST, which is his acronym for Optimal Performance Training for the Body, Emotions, Spirit, and Thoughts.
