In my 38 years of practice, I have never seen any treatment that comes close to producing the results that Neurofeedback offers... I have seen results achieved in days and weeks that previously took months and years to achieve, using the best methods available to us.

How Does Neurofeedback Work?
Neurofeedback targets the underlying dysregulation in brain activity that can exacerbate and sometimes cause clinical symptoms. This influence may also encourage neurophysiological resilience with the induction of brain flexibility, relaxation, and a steadier central nervous system. For example, if one's state of neuroanatomy and physiological health is over-stimulated or under-aroused, mental illnesses, with various symptoms may manifest behaviorally, psychologically, emotionally, and/or physically. Such disorders as anxiety and depression may have a base in neurophysiology which consequently can be targeted for training. A brain with greater flexibility has the capacity to more healthily adapt to challenging life situations.
During a session, clients usually report feeling relaxed. Clients sit in a recliner and listen to sounds. It's easy and fun. Remember, nothing is being put into your brain. We are simply "listening" to your brain wave activity through sensors, much like a doctor listening to your heart with a stethoscope, and feeding the information back to you.
What are Physicians Saying about Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback... accelerates symptom removal and the development of healthy self-regulation—meaning it helps the patient’s own body make the proper adjustments.

Neurofeedback offers a powerful intervention. While not a panacea, it can improve and stabilize symptoms in the very kinds of cases psychiatrists struggle with.

Three Steps to Our Comprehensive Treatment Plan
Intake and Assessment – Find Out if Neurofeedback Training is Right for You
We review your symptoms, history, and goals to help create a brain profile. As part of the assessment session, we will run an initial EEG recording. This helps us look at your brain specifically and make recommendations about a training program customized to your needs.
EEG Brain Mapping – Determining What Treatment is Best
The brain map, often referred to as a qEEG, is one of the most vital diagnostic tools available in the field of neurofeedback. The brain map provides a detailed picture of brain activity, allowing us to customize a targeted treatment plan.
Neurofeedback Training Sessions
Brain training sessions include training with EEG biofeedback, and also a variety of other tools we’ve found effective at helping with self-regulation. We provide ongoing assessment and consultations with clients regarding progress. Our clients are very involved in the feedback process, and play an important role in helping guide the training process.
