To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this letter to introduce myself to you and to inform you of the benefits of psychological strategies used in an educational setting. I have been a licensed psychologist for almost 20 years and have found that these techniques are very helpful to students who want to perform at an optimal level. As you are probably aware, many college students suffer from mental disorders ranging from depression, anxiety, and personality disorders, which can in turn affect their ability to perform on tests. Making the transition from high school to college can be very intimidating, especially if the student does not have the necessary resources to cope with this major life event. Many students fail to matriculate through college in a timely fashion because of poor study habits, writing skills, and test taking abilities. Test anxiety can paralyze and otherwise competent student and prevent him or her from performing adequately. Furthermore, women suffer more from all types of anxiety than men.
Some colleges and universities provide services to assist the student in making this adjustment. I think my services will help to augment what you may already offer.

Test anxiety in particular has been shown to be helped by behavioral strategies and physiological feedback retraining Heart Rate Variability (HRV) treatment. Em Wave® by Heart Math.
