What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a therapeutic intervention that provides immediate feedback from a computer-based program that assesses a client’s brainwave activity, giving our therapists a custom brain map to guide you through retraining your brain to optimal function.  This involves the placement of 2-4 EEG sensors on targeted areas of the scalp, following a physiological/mental health assessment.  The patient is asked to sit anywhere from 3-20 mins receiving this brain training that focuses on capturing and rewarding optimal brain activity.  Our providers will work directly with your medication provider to determine a plan that is concurrent, collaborative, and safe.  There is no electrical activity being inputed into the brain, rather it's an evaluative and feedback approach training that rewards your brain for internal changes that are observed (in accordance to your treatment goals).


When is Neurofeedback a good option?

Neurofeedback can be useful for those who have an intolerance or lack of response to traditional psychiatric medications or want an extra "boost" to their ongoing medication treatment
Neurofeedback is shown to work similarly to many medications, with less of a side effect profile.  Neurofeedback can be an alternative to those who have had a lack of response to traditional psychotherapy or psychiatry treatments.  It can also be used in conjunction with medications or therapy.  What sets our practice apart is our interdisciplinary approach to treatment.  Your neurofeedback clinician will communicate with our staff psychiatrist/nurse practitioner/therapist to create the right balance for you.  Neurofeedback can also help patients lower their medication doses or in some cases, discontinue certain medications all together.
