Some individuals, no matter how hard they try, struggle with freeing themselves of self-defeating patterns of thinking and behaving. While medication can be advantageous in these situations, we provide Traditional Neurofeedback as an alternative, when appropriate. Neurofeedback has been found successful in relieving the symptoms of depression, stress, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, insomnia, and many other symptoms.

Neurofeedback involves direct training of brain wave function for the purpose of developing more efficient patterns of brain-wave activity. This improved self-regulation of brain-wave activity transfers into improved self-regulation of emotions, behaviors and cognitive functionining.

 

During neurofeedback training, the client's brain-wave activity is monitored by placing sensors on the scalp. The client is then provided live, real-time "feedback" in regard to this activity. Depending on the type of neurofeedback being provided, the client may be engaged in various activities, such as playing a video game, practicing relaxation techniques, watching a movie or doing homework. We provided two different types of neurofeedback training, based on client's needs and comfort levels: Traditional Neurofeedback and LENS Neurofeedback.
