Neurofeedback for Adults

If this is the first time searching for treatment options, we are happy to answer any questions you may have. Addressing mental health concerns is an important part of preventative healthcare. Our professionals take the time to learn the struggles and strengths of each patient, create goals while supporting growth and change for the better. We attempt to accomplish these goals through a variety of means. 

This clinic specializes in identifying “at risk” individuals and utilizing Neurophysiological approaches as a pathway to health. The means for achieving this goal include testing, assessments and treatment. There are many options available that we tailor to each individual person that would involve the use of conventional and/or innovative services that will put you on the right track.

  • Conventional treatments like medication management, testing and counseling are often helpful in addressing symptoms, diagnosing neuropsychological concerns and improving these challenges through cognitive behavioral therapy. 
  • Innovative options such as neurofeedback is an alternative to medication that can help improve the root cause of many common symptoms of conditions or disorders; such as, ADHD, autism, anxiety, depression, brain injury, PTSD, memory loss, etc. This is completed through consistent brain training through a relaxing session driven by auditory and/or visual positive reinforcement in the form of watching a movie or listening to music.


Neurofeedback aims to retrain brainwaves by positive reinforcement by teaching the brain to self-regulate dysregulated areas through watching a video, listening to ambient music, or video games while connected to a sophisticated neurofeedback training program.  

Neurofeedback is non-invasive, does not require any medication (but can still be used if using medication) and produces long term positive results. It is an alternative treatment to medication while some patients are able to reduce medication needs once their brainwaves are retrained and are now functioning optimally.  



Neurofeedback has limited risks. Majority of patient’s feel no effects after a session. Tiredness, dizziness or headache can occur in some instances. One would notice any side effects immediately or shortly after a session was completed. 

Some tiredness can occur after a session due to neurofeedback is a brain workout and can be considered strength training for the brain. 

We monitor each session and stay in constant communication and if any extreme tiredness or headaches emerges, we stop the session immediately.
