Almost any brain, regardless of its level of function, can be trained to
function better. Training one’s brain results in more optimal functioning,
thus improving mental and emotional health.
What is Neurofeedback?
What conditions can it help?
Neurofeedback addresses numerous mental, emotional and physical problems of brain dysregulation. A better functioning brain can improve sleep. When you sleep more efficiently, you are more alert during the day. Neurofeedback can be helpful in managing attention… Read More

How does it work?
The clinician takes a comprehensive assessment of reported symptoms,
How do you know where to place electrodes?
Very simply, the left side of the brain controls under-arousal (e.g. depression), and the right side controls over-arousal (e.g., anxiety). The area of the brain behind the forehead (known as the frontal lobe) helps regulate motivation, organization, impulsivity, learning from previous behavior… Read More
How does Neurofeedback evaluation differ from traditional psychiatric diagnosis?
Instead of looking at a cluster of psychiatric symptoms, then looking them up in the DSM IV (diagnostic manual for a psychiatric diagnosis), neurofeedback therapists look for
How long does the effect of training last?

Jack Woodward, MD, Board Certified Psychiatrist
“Without neurofeedback training, it takes incredible energy and ongoing supervision from parents and teachers to keep children with ADD on track. It is wonderful to see children learning to do this for themselves as they learn to regulate their brainwaves using . This is the most exciting thing I have done in my career as a psychologist. Neurofeedback empowers people to make changes and achieve things that were just not possible for them before.”
“Neurofeedback enhances functions in particular parts of the brain. We measure real changes of the brain from neurofeedback when we do a neuropsychological assessment. You can see the changes in neurobehavioral function…Neuro-biofeedback gives the brain direction – it tells the biochemical system which way to go to make its correction. The brain needs that guidance, stimulation, and direction…it would take 3 – 5 years to do what I can now do in 3 – 5 months.” (In brain injury rehab)
“I have been a marriage/family therapist for over 20 years, and have looked at many alternative treatments. I found none that had results as significant as current neurofeedback therapy. Because of advances in technology (faster, more accurate computers and ways to view the brain), Neurofeedback is often the treatment of choice for many conditions… Providing better results faster.
