A 19 year old female came for Neurofeedback at the request of her therapist. She had abused many different substances from alcohol, to pot, to heroin. She had a horrific trauma history and PTSD symptoms like flashbacks, nightmares, and panic attacks that left her unable to sleep and afraid of her own shadow. She had tried the usual medication and therapy route, but was stuck.
Within a week with three Neurofeedback sessions, she was sleeping through the night. It's amazing what sleep will do for mental health!! A week later she could do basic errands and had cut back on caffeine and nicotine. By being more regulated and stable, her strained relationships were improving too. Life wasn't perfect, but she was able to put the skills and insights she learned in therapy to work.
If you or someone you know might be a good candidate for Neurofeedback, I would love to talk to you. This type of treatment can be the key to helping those who think all hope is lost. Please contact me today for a consultation.
