When Your Brain is Regulated, Your Function Improves

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

When's the last time you checked in with your brain? Do you ever feel like your to do list never gets done, your stress overcomes your joy, and somewhere along the way you lost control of your emotions? Do you feel exhausted at the end of the day because you had to work so hard to keep it all together, but when it's time to go to bed, your mind just won't shut off? Time to regulate... I know. It's hard. Really hard, actually. In fact, it can feel like a losing battle.

Sometimes, our brain is too busy to focus on anything.

Your brain isn't broken, even if it feels like it at times. You're just not regulating well, and it doesn't have to stay that way. If there is one thing your brain is really good at, it's learning... even if school wasn't/isn't your thing.


🌟 Title: Finding Harmony Within: Your Path to Self-Regulation Through Neurofeedback 🌟

For more than 20 years, I have had the honor of accompanying individuals and families on their journeys toward self-discovery, healing, and resilience.


Life’s challenges, whether they come in the form of ADHD, anxiety, depression, insomnia, PTSD, or even just sustained high stress, can sometimes make us feel like we are adrift in a stormy sea. It's during these times that the pursuit of inner peace and self regulation becomes not just a goal but a necessity. I want to share with you a profound tool: neurofeedback, a therapeutic technique rooted in understanding and empowering your brain's innate ability to self-regulate. It's a way of working WITH your brain, and creating new patterns that improve your ability to find focus, calm, motivation, and rest.


🌟 Navigating the Waters: Neurofeedback and Your Path to Inner Calm 🌟

Neurofeedback is a gentle yet powerful process that allows us to decode the language of your brainwaves through a technique called qEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalography). The brain maps produced give us a personalized understanding of where your brain is at right now, and it becomes the cornerstone of your unique neurofeedback sessions, guiding your mind toward serenity and balance.


Alongside the physiological work of neurofeedback, we will also work with your mind and with your emotional state. I do not believe in neurofeedback as a plug-and-play therapy. The power of this tool resides in the combination of the technology with the therapy. I will stay with you throughout your sessions, acting as your guide and your coach to help you shape your learning and generalize it to your every day life.

Challenges come constantly in big and small ways. How well does your brain adjust?

Principles for Your Journey to Self-Regulation

  1. Begin with Understanding: Embark on your journey by unraveling the mysteries of your own mind through qEEG and neurofeedback. This profound self-awareness serves as the foundation upon which your healing rests.

  2. Mindful Presence: Embrace the practice of mindfulness, grounding yourself in the present moment. Mindfulness offers the gift of acceptance and a sanctuary from the chaos, promoting resilience and emotional well-being.

  3. Nourishing Your Being: Respect your body as the vessel of your soul. Nutritious food, regular exercise, and ample sleep are not just self-care rituals but vital components of your holistic well-being.

  4. Embracing Connections: As humans, we are wired for connection. Reach out to supportive communities, friends, and family. Your journey to self-regulation is made lighter when shared with compassionate souls who understand the depth of your struggle.

  5. Cultivating Compassion: Be gentle with yourself. Self-compassion is not an indulgence but a necessity. Treat yourself with the same kindness and understanding that you would offer to a dear friend in times of distress.
