Brain & Behavior Associates
Our holistic approach to mood, anxiety, pain, and behavior disorders is significantly different from the typical approaches of other practitioners. We use state-of-the-art brain-based methods to understand the brain better, such as brain electrical activity mapping, assessments of the neurotransmitters and stress hormones, as well as evaluation of each person’s cognitive, emotional, spiritual, and relational skills and supports. While there are a lot of clinics that talk about addressing the brain, we actually do - using 3D brain imaging to guide our approach to your brain health concerns.
The brain is involved in everything we do. Focusing, listening, problem solving, decision-making, relaxing, as well as how we behave, are all determined by brain health and function. Brain function determines our success or failure in the context of relationships, work, and academic performance. If there are problems in the brain, they result in problems in daily functioning. The great news is that the brain can learn to function more efficiently. We use the term “brain training” to describe the techniques we use to help improve the brain’s overall performance. Better brain function results in clearer thinking, more stable emotions, and behaviors that are more desirable and consistent. Our method of brain training is neurofeedback, EEG biofeedback, or neurotherapy. Unlike brain training games advertised for smart devices, we train the brain as we are imaging the electrical activity of the brain so that the training is precise and targeted to your brain. We use other advanced tools like biofeedback (heart rate variability, skin conductance and temperature, and breath work) audio-visual entrainment (AVE), cranial electrical stimulation (CES), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), and pulse electromagnetic field therapy (pEMF) to target specific areas of the brain and body that need to be addressed. We base the mode or form of treatment on our overall assessment of your brain function and your current experience of symptoms, whether emotional, cognitive, behavior, or stress-related.
