“Neurofeedback is a gift. John is a gift. The experience is a gift. I have done a variety of therapeutic techniques over the years, which have all helped to some degree with gaining clarity, lessening depression and anxiety too. Neurofeedback sets your brain in balance, which means you actually have more confidence, an ability to regulate and manage your emotions better, sleep and eat better, overall people notice the difference in you. It’s been such a benefit in how I process emotions and events. I find life is easier and happier, because I am processing and getting clear quickly. I take things less personally; I am more focused and I never feel depressed, ever! And a side benefit, it seems to attract the opposite sex, as in, you will notice a HUGE increase in attention.” Tracy C. Altadena
I’m the father of two teenage girls, one of which is responsible for changing my career. She is on the autistic spectrum and neurofeedback training helped her improve her self regulation without her medications. It was a wonderful transformation and set her on a path of success in school and life. My experience with her led me to train at the Othmer Institute in woodland Hills with Sue and Siegfried Othmer, two pioneers in neurofeedback training. I keep myself informed about the latest developments in neuroscience attend professional development courses and am always looking to add elements of mind/body work to my practice. Since the brain does not work in a vacuum, I encourage proper nutrition, sleep habits, and behavioral changes that will aid in the work of properly re-regulating a disregulated brain.
Every client is a new challenge and it is immensely gratifying to see their symptoms recede, to see their lives change in a few short months.
