Additional Areas We Treat
Neurofeedback is a cutting-edge treatment that helps individuals retrain their brain’s response to stress and other stimuli. Many conditions have been shown to be correlated with irregular brain activity that may benefit from neurofeedback brain training.
Between counseling services and neurofeedback, we have an excellent track record of assisting clients with the following:
- Anger management: children and adults struggling with anger and explosiveness benefit from developing awareness of their physiological response to stress. By learning how to identify their response and calm themselves using neurofeedback tools, they can put a proper “check” on their reaction to stress and self-soothe so they can respond thoughtfully.
- Athletic performance: reduce distraction, improve concentration, and advance reaction time.
- Autism spectrum: a major component of autism spectrum disorders is sensory overload. By learning how to manage the experience and retrain the brain to respond more appropriately to stimuli, those diagnosed on the autism spectrum demonstrate improved social, emotional, and behavioral functioning with neurofeedback.
- Executive performance: to get ahead in the competitive corporate world, executives are turning to the same tools athletes use for the competitive edge. Executives benefit by improved focus during meetings and phone calls, mastering new tasks and materials more quickly, countering age-related cognitive decline and memory loss, enhanced relaxation skills reducing fatigue and burnout.
- Learning disabilities: when standard educational practices and tutoring do not solve the problem, neurofeedback has been shown helpful with your child’s frustration, irritability, anger, anxiety, and mood that very often accompany their learning disabilities. This can often improve the outcome of their academic interventions.
- Sensory integration: children struggling with this condition often feel bombarded by everyday sensory information such as taste, touch, sound, vision and movement. Neurofeedback can help your child self-regulate reactions and better cope and master these daily experiences.
- Substance abuse: While the research is still developing on using neurofeedback in the treatment of substance abuse, early evidence shows it can help enhance tolerance for cravings and calm the impulsive desire to numb out when they become overwhelmed. Treatment facilities who use neurofeedback in conjunction with psychotherapy report a reduction in relapse rates from 75% to 25%. More research needs to validate this claim, but anecdotally it shows promise.
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) and stroke: For those who suffer from mild TBI and stroke, neurofeedback has been used effectively to help with speech, movement, mood regulation, behavioral control, and headache reduction. Because neurofeedback can focus on the specific areas of the brain where each of these areas are affected, it can be finely targeted, strengthening and improving brain function to meet your needs.
