Counseling with Live Brain Monitoring
How We Work
Each client receives live brain monitoring that helps guide counseling.
We discuss life issues and strengths and struggles. I am a marriage and family therapist with a specialty in neurological functioning in mental health and family dynamics.
I work with holistic therapies including eastern and western frameworks and traditional talk therapy. We also incorporate techniques used in EMDR and biological feedback. The biological feedback, a.k.a. biofeedback, monitors brain behavior and the client keeps a piece of their favorite music, or a game going when they make needed brain change.The screen tells them immediately when they are changing in a positive or a negative direction.
Positive change keeps the media playing and negative causes it to stop immediately. People change what they are doing and learn what they are doing in a felt sense, so they can do it better.
This changes the brain behavior, brain structure and potential in the future, and we talk about it at an age appropriate level to tie it into everyday life. We also process each persons lifestyle, needs, and I teach techniques to help with mindfulness.
Things We Work On
I have worked successfully with people on optimum performance issues, ADHD, autism, depression, anxiety, PTSD, fetal alcohol syndrome, and more. I base my approaches on current research.
The research shows it is helpful for athletes, artists, school performance, and is as effective as medications for ADHD, anxiety, and other concerns. It restores and strengthens the brain in a fast and learned way. Astronauts and Olympic athletes also train with this type of feedback.
It also helps correct issues caused by alcohol use, and also is 80% effective in preventing relapse in the first year after treatment because it restores the brain faster than 12 step programs that have a 20% relapse prevention rate in the first year.
Fees and Session Length
The clinical fee is $150 per hour and a half. An hour and a half session allows for two biofeedback sessions in one. Most research is based on 2X per week for the therapy, but logistically this is difficult for most people.
