I work with outpatients, mostly children but some adults. We have treated both Adults and children with a specialty intervention called neurofeedback. Our target clients are the neurodevelopmentally delayed such as autism, learning disabilities, and other neurologically impaired clientele. We have been highly successful treating attention deficit disorder without medication with a 90% success rate. We have also treated with success those with cognitive impairment due to head injuries, stroke, and ageing. We have been particularly effective in treating anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder. I also work inpatient with addictive disorders at Holy Family Medical Center, Keys To Recovery. Studies have demonstrated minimal relapse for addicts treated with neurofeedback.

We offer a treatment modality called EEG biofeedback or neurofeedback. With over 25 years of experience we have treated hundreds of children and adults with cognitive disorders such as autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, stroke, head injuries, and other neurodevelopmental disorders. We specialize in the treatment of anxiety. We introduced neurofeedback into the Chicago area over 25 years and it has blossomed into the non medication treatment of choice for many neurocognitive disorders.

We feel strongly concerning the viability of neurofeedback as a treatment for many disorders both cognitive and emotional. We provide a thorough neurocognitve assessment utilizing a Quantitative EEG a highly valid and reliable assessment of the electrophysiology of the brain. Through our assessment we are able to identify the regions of interest linked to a particular disorder. We then develop a treatment protocol based upon those irregularities. Although we still provide traditional interventions, our major treatment endeavors has been the utilization of neurofeedback. It Works!
