Brain Training…

Neurofeedback (also referred to as Brain Training) addresses problems of brain disregulation.  This can include symptoms such as, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Developmental Trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), sleep disorders, headaches and migraines, Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), Autism as well as other emotional disturbances.

Neurofeedback is a 50-year-old practice of non-invasive direct training of brain function, by which the brain learns to function more efficiently and allows an individual to learn voluntary control over his/her brain’s electrical activity or “brainwaves”.

My Families Journey with Neurofeedback…

My husband and I became foster and adoptive parents in June of 2011.  We did not fully understand what we were getting ourselves into, we just knew we wanted to grow our family.  In December of 2011, we met a 3 year old little boy who would later become our son.  He came to us with Reactive Attachment Disorder, PTSD, Gastrointestinal Issues and Sensory Processing Disorder.

May of 2012 we were introduced to Neurofeedback and it changed our world!  Our 3 year old controlled every facet of his life from his schedule to what he would put in his mouth…we had a bucket as a permanent fixture for mealtime  for 6 months and he would purge anything that came into contact with his mouth. 

After only FIVE days of neurofeedback, he was no longer reciting the schedule for the day and he was no longer throwing food back up.  Praise God!

Fast forward to September of 2013, we took in a little 21 month old with Autism and in the spring of 2014, we were told our 16 year old had Aspergers.

The fall of 2014, I left my corporate career and began studying Neurofeedback as a way to help my family and now it has become my career and passion working with families with Autism and Developmental trauma.

Our then 21 month old is now 6!  A year ago he was still non-verbal and developmentally that of about a 2 1/2 year old.  we were looking at communication devices to help him at school and kept getting denied by insurance.  We were having constant melt downs because he was so frustrated that we didn’t understand what he wanted.

Boo was always very hesitant to allow me to do neuro with him but last summer, after really watching other kids do neuro, he decided he wanted to too!  Two months after starting neuro with him, words were forming and then within a short period of time we had two and three word sentences.

Today, our 6 yo is developmentally a 4 year old, speaking sentences, expressing how he feels and is using communication like any child.  We still have our challenges but communication was has been key to saying good-bye to so many of the meltdowns and frustrations.

Neurofeedback has given my family hope, it has helped to give my 6 year old words, to calm and regulate my ADHD/ODD 9yo, helped my husband manage his chronic pain and helped give this mama a peace of mind that my boys and family will be ok.

HOW CAN NEUROFEEDBACK HELP YOU?

&nbsp
Our work together begins with an online survey and interview to determine training goals. This information is combined with a Brain Map (QEEG) in order to get the best possible picture of how your brain is currently functioning.  I then compare the picture of your brain function with the symptoms you report to develop your brain training plan.  

Together, practitioner (me) and the trainee (you) will implement a plan for sessions that usually last 45-90 minutes, 1-2x/week.  Most people begin to see results within as little as 2 or 3 with some needing up to 10 sessions, the overall number of sessions needed is determined by your training goals and how quickly your brain/body responds.

Depending on your goals,  in addition to neurofeedback training, I can help you optimize brain health and neural function through the use of  EFT/TFT (Tapping), Coaching, Emwave (Heartmath – Breathing), Meditations, Hynosis or Reiki.

 

I DO NOT treat or diagnose, I train and coach.

Brain-Training can help you:

Brain Training is a learning process in which symptom changes take place gradually, over a period of time.  The brain is trained to change patterns associated with symptoms, once the new patterns are learned they often last with no further treatment required.

  • Strengthen attention, focus, learning, memory, creativity and intuition;

  • Gain greater control of behavior, emotions, and racing thoughts;

  • Brighten and stabilize mood and deal with past traumatic experience;

  • Improve sleep, appetite and other physical functions;

  • Overcome chronic pain and fatigue conditions;

  • Rehabilitate head injuries, seizure activity, migraines and irritable bowel;

  • Improve your ability to stay in “the zone” and perform at your peak.

Can I still do Neurofeedback if I am on medications?2018-02-14T10:15:00+00:00

It is always advisable to check with your doctor if you are on medications.

Please see LINK for further information regarding neurofeedback an medications.

How effective is brain training, what kind of results can I expect?2018-02-14T09:28:33+00:00

Studies have repeatedly shown Neurofeeedback to be effective in a wide variety of clinical applications as well as for peak performance.

Clients can feel different after just the first session, although it will take several sessions for the new ways of working to be fully learned by the brain.

Just as different people learn at different rates, so do different brains, and some have more to learn than others.

 

Is neurofeedback safe?2018-02-03T13:37:40+00:00

Absolutely. The sensors attached to your scalp are simply there to listen to the brain; there is no stimulation or signal transmitted by the equipment. The brain does all the real work, adapting in response to the feedback.

What is the brain training experience like?2018-02-03T13:52:19+00:00

Electrode sensors  will be attached to your scalp to monitor your brain waves.

Feedback to your brain is provided through the use of video, audio and tasks.  There is a choice of video games that you ‘control’ with your brain, from very simple ‘pong’ type games to car racing and jet ski games. You can also choose from a range of documentaries, TV shows or music videos, in fact any DVD you want to bring along or YouTube videos.

The video will fade in and out as the brain changes state. As you relax, the brain is able to ‘tune in’ to the feedback and adjust in response. This all happens subconsciously…Brain training does not focus on trying to change the conscious mind. Brain training changes the underlying patterns best without the “thinking” mind.

My child has a diagnosis, can neurofeedback help?2018-09-13T14:44:20+00:00

YES!  I have personally seen the improvement in my own children as well as the hundreds of children and families I have worked with over the past 4 years.
