The first step is to arrange a visit and personal consultation where we can evaluate you or your child and determine if our treatment programs are appropriate. After our initial assessment, we may recommend some additional evaluations, including a brain map, to determine the best course of treatment.
Neurofeedback has been studied extensively over since the 1970’s and several recent studies specifically around attention deficit disorder and other psychological disorders have shown a measurable scientific benefit in focus, concentration, behavior and emotional well-being.
Not at all. Many already high performing and functioning people use neurofeedback to fine-tune their brain for better performance at work and in sports activities. Our programs have helped both business executives and professional athletes improve their focus and mental responses using neurofeedback.
This largely depends on the individual, but most patients experience substantial success after 20 to 40 sessions. More complex cases like Autism and closed-head injuries may require more time. Once treatment is complete, most patients do not require any additional sessions.
Sessions may be scheduled from one to five times a week. On average, most patients participate in two or three sessions per week.
Our fees are consistent with other licensed psychologists. Many of our treatments require multiple sessions for success so we offer packages of sessions based on your individual treatment requirements.
Studies have shown the results from neurofeedback are long-lasting, if not permanent.
It depends on the diagnosis and your individual plan. Please contact your provider if you have questions.
No. Neurofeedback is a learning-style therapy where the brain uses it’s own resources to change behavior in a non-invasive manner.
This depends on the individual and the severity of their condition, but most patients report positive results after a few sessions.
Absolutely not. Neurofeedback is a safe, painless, drug-free treatment and is not uncomfortable in any way.
The results from neurofeedback can be subtle or obvious depending on the patient, especially in the beginning. Over-time the results become more apparent with treatment.
