Optimum brain functioning equals better performance.
Using the most advanced technology, our approach to neurofeedback is the same used by Olympic athletes and top executives around the world to improve brain functioning and overall performance.
3-D Mapping and Neuromodulation
The American Academy of Pediatrics lists Neurofeedback as a “Level 1” best support treatment option for ADHD, which is in the same category as medication and may be helpful for autism, anxiety, depression, sleep, PTSD, titrating off medication, performance enhancement, etc. Neurofeedback comes in many forms and some may be more effective than others. We use 19-channel z-score Neurofeedback rather than neurofeedback with only 2-6 channels to maximize efficiency in training. Our experts obtain rigorous training and we are consistently updating our methodologies to reflect evidenced-based neuroscience for efficient outcomes.
We start with an hour appointment to obtain a quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG) ‘brain map’ that safely and non-invasively reads the brains electrical activity. Using advanced technology and statistical analysis, we obtain 3-D LORETA (low resolution brain electromagnetic tomography) and combine those images with traditional brain maps and assess areas of inefficient activity and connectivity within the brain. We develop a comprehensive, individualized treatment strategy in tiers that address inefficient functioning and desired behavioral and performance outcomes such as improved attention, lower hyperactivity, reduced obsessiveness, improved mood, or better auditory processing. We then review the results with you in a feedback session and outline our plan for best results. A qEEG can be a separate appointment or in conjunction with more comprehensive testing.
Neurofeedback training sessions are non-invasive and last about 45 minutes each. The number of sessions needed for optimal results ranges based on age, response to treatment, magnitude of inefficiency in the brain, etc. Typically we can achieve optimum results in 18-35 sessions and your specialist may recommend a combination approach of Neurofeedback and EMDR Therapy for optimum results.
Recommended Treatment for:
- Anxiety, Depression, PTSD
- Sleep Disorders
- Performance Enhancement

Neurofeedback began in the 1960s when Dr. Barry Sterman at UCLA discovered cats who had undergone neurofeedback had a greater seizure threshold than other cats. Neurofeedback is now a treatment for seizures, ADHD, Autism, PTSD, and many other conditions. Technological advances allow us to get results that used to take 150 sessions in 30 sessions or fewer safely and non-invasively.
