Welcome to the practice of Ellen Shaw-Smith, LICSW, BCN at Wellspring Integrative Neurotherapy. As a Board Certified Neurofeedback Provider and Licensed Psychotherapist, I and my team offer neurofeedback and gentle Nexalin brain stimulation. As a Dialectical Behavioral Therapist serving adolescents and adults for many years, I observed clients working hard and making progress that often fell short of change needed in areas of work, school or relationships. With the addition of neurotherapy to support positive change in the Central Nervous System, clients experience increased capacity for development over the life span, and a greater realization of individual therapeutic goals.
Neurofeedback strengthens the CNS by allowing us to change the brain's blood flow and to modify electrical frequency activity for increased stability and flexibility of functioning. With FDA accepted gentle Nexalin brain stimulation for Anxiety, Depression and Insomnia, we work to improve mood and sleep, increasing over all wellbeing.
