Here are some of the typical questions that people ask me about Neurofeedback.  

If you have other questions that are not listed, don't hesitate to contact me.

  • How Often Do You Train?
    Usually clients train once a week for a two-hour period. Some prefer coming in twice a week for an hour each time. It really depends on your schedule and mine. At a minimum, one hour of training a week is recommended.
  • Can I Train if I'm Currently on Medication?
    Research shows that there may be additional benefits to training if you are on medications. With stimulants there seems to be an additive effect when combined with Neurofeedback. Check with your health provider before changing meds, but it is perfectly fine to train while taking medication.
  • Does Neurofeedback Actually Change My Brain Activity?
    Research has shown that Neurofeedback actually increases the amount of grey and white matter in the brain, based on Functional MRI studies. By having a brain map at the beginning of training, as well as a brain map every 20 sessions, you can actually see improvement in brain activity over time.
  • Are The Results Permanent Or Would Maintenance Sessions Be Required?
    Once significant improvement is made, results do seem to last. In the event that additional sessions are required, usually once a month is sufficient. Having a "booster" session now and then can strengthen the training effects.
  • What Is The Overall Success Rate Of Neurofeedback?
    I wish I could say 100%, but on average, it is close to 80%.
  • Why Haven't I Heard Of Neurofeedback Before?
    Neurofeedback is not well recognized because there is no pharmaceutical company or large, well funded organization with a patent that promotes it. Studies have been done to show neurofeedback's effectiveness, but these articles are published in less prestigious journals. Doctors typically are not educated about alternative therapies because the medical model is based on the principle that scientific studies need to show that a treatment is more effective than placebo and is not harmful. There are no reports from the work I've done or from others in the field that neurofeedback is harmful. Also, I know from the clients I've worked with that neurofeedback is effective.
  • What Are Some Payment Options?
    Payment is expected at the time of service with a major credit card, cash, check, or FSA/HSA funds. A package of 10 sessions is $1,250. Payment for each session individually is $150.
  • Does Insurance Cover Neurofeedback?
    Insurance does not cover brain mapping or neurofeedback. Health Savings Accounts (HSA) will cover neurofeedback.
