Trauma, PTSD, & Neurofeedback

Train your Brain for Optimal Health & Performance! Neurofeedback is able to help children, teenagers, and adults who have experienced Trauma, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), or related symptoms.

Individuals who have experienced trauma may have issues with emotional dysregulation, behavior dysregulation, physiological issues and difficulties in coping with personal, work or relationship-based stressors. Brain training can stabilize and regulate a dysregulated brain.

The dysregulation model of neurofeedback explains that the brain may have difficulty calming down at the appropriate moments, regulating emotions, and essentially thriving versus surviving. Individuals may shut down in some situations and find they cannot regulate in others.
