Welcome to BrainWaves Neurotherapy Center, 

where we provide talk therapy utilizing technology to optimize your brain function, 

improve mood, and help you to self-regulate in all areas of your life!

What We Can Offer


We provide counseling services for individuals who want to improve their lives.  

We utilize various treatment modalities such as talk therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, hypnosis, biofeedback, and neurofeedback.  We work with clients who want to improve their overall well-being as well as those who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, ADHD, Eating Disorder, OCD, PTSD, Relationship Distress, Identity Concerns


Biofeedback is the generic term for a variety of different approaches that use physiological measures to "feedback" information to the client using technology. 

The various techniques may involve measurements of heart rate, respiration, peripheral skin temperature, and galvanic skin response.  Additional measurements might include muscle activity, known as EMG and measurements of brain activity known as EEG.  

The bottom line is that we can train you to control bodily functions such as heart rate, respiration, temperature, muscle tension and brain waves for a better life.


A new drug free approach using technology that is natural, non-invasive and effortless.  At any age you can improve your brain’s performance, sharpness and resiliency. 

Neurofeedback is a powerful, evidence-based, non invasive form of brain conditioning that can create positive change. It reboots the brain and helps achieve optimal brain fitness and function.  

Studies done by several researchers have shown that 6 months to a year of practice with neurofeedback technology results in the same control of brainwave states that 20-year meditators exhibit.

The AAP (The American Academy of Pediatrics) recently rated neurofeedback at the same level

of efficacy as stimulant medication for use with those dealing with ADD and ADHD. Many

people still don’t know of this news. Those in clinical practice have known this technique works

for two decades, but the majority of the public is unaware that an effective, non-drug option for

ADD and ADHD exists.
