Neurofeedback is a 100% non-invasive, drug-free, brain training system that helps the central nervous system (CNS) make the best use of your brain’s natural resources and help you achieve a calmer, more well-balanced state of being. It has no known side effects. We have found Neurofeedback to be very helpful as an adjunct to talk therapy, or on its own.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Neurofeedback for relaxation training. The American Pediatric Academy has endorsed Neurofeedback as a “Level 1/Best Support” treatment for children with ADHD.
Neurofeedback training for the brain is similar to physical training for the body. Much of our suffering comes from pervasive recurring thoughts and feelings in which our minds become emotionally stranded or cognitively “stuck.” Neurofeedback monitors your brain waves and then provides “feedback” to your central nervous system about what it has just done. When the software detects a tremor in your brain wave pattern (indicative of chaotic or unstable brain wave pattern), it sends an audible signal that encourages the brain to “reset” and self-correct
Because Neurofeedback helps the central nervous system improve regulation and work more efficiently, people who train their brains may notice positive impacts in a wide variety of seemingly unrelated areas of life including:
Improvement in Physical, Cognitive & Emotional Challenges Brain Fitness/Age Remediation Peak Physical/Mental Performance Improved Academic Performance General Wellness
Biofeedback has been around for almost 40 years, but its use was inhibited by the scarcity of a practical delivery system. In the past, a Neurofeedback interface would require a room full of computers and technicians. Today, we are able to use a simple, interactive software that harnesses this powerful technology in a program called NeurOptimal®.
We did extensive research on the different Neurofeedback systems and chose to use NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback for ourselves and our clients. Learn Why:
Before getting started, one of our Neurofeedback trainers will meet with you one-on-one to answer all of your questions and determine if Neurofeedback may be a good fit for you. We may have you fill out a survey listing the complaints and/or challenges that have brought you into our office, or will talk about what you are hoping to achieve with Neurofeedback training.
When you come for your first Neurofeedback session you relax in a quiet space and in a comfortable position. Your trainer will attach special sensors to your head that will feed your brain wave patterns into the NeurOptimal® program’s software.
ADHD might look different in women than in it does with either men or children. Learning to identify potential signs could be important to improving your overall effectiveness and quality of life. Read on to learn more about potential signs and nuances of ADHD in women, and also to recognize treatment options.
What is it really like to use Neurofeedback? People often want to know what Neurofeedback is like, and why so many people are excited about it. In this short video, one mother talks about her experience with NeurOptimal Neurofeedback (the system we use here at The Catalyst Center).
Traumatic Brain Injuries can be life-altering. Here are two amazing stories of real people who have experienced recovery assisted by Neurofeedback. Hear about a family whose son came back from a coma following a car accident, and one woman's experience of using Neurofeedback during her recovery from a concussion.
There is a holistic approach to mental health in America. It may not be the standard yet, but I witness its practice every day. I also know we are not attached to any one brand or method (of neurofeedback) exclusively but rather we are constantly striving to learn more, experience more, and utilize more for the benefit of out clients. I partially credit the fact that we ALL train our brains first to the commitment we have to this culture...
