About

I love my approach to brain wave training with neurofeedback. It is broadly effective at producing substantial results in your life that are enduring. Most often I see people with anxiety, depression, insomnia, ADHD, migraine, PTSD, addictions, bipolar and autism. I believe that most people with psychological issues have brain wave activity that is either over-aroused or under-aroused. That is, either too much or too little brain wave activity in either the fast or slow frequencies. Mental problems are a timing issue in the brain. These timing issues can be corrected by practicing a better way to function.
With EEG Biofeedback your brain gets information about what it is doing dozens of times per second. Biofeedback trains you to correct EEG imbalance by interacting with audio-visual signals. Then your life improves! Biofeedback training is like learning to drive a car in the middle of the lane.
When you veer off you get a bump-bump until you steer back into the middle. We can train your brain waves to be in the middle of 8 lanes at a time! Call me at 610.668-3223 to set an appointment or to talk about this interesting approach.
