Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback, also called neurotherapy or neurobiofeedback, is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity—most commonly electroencephalography —in an attempt to teach self-regulation of brain function. Practical uses include, but are not limited to, the therapy of children with ADHD/Autism and those suffering from anxiety and depression as well as brain brightening for seniors, exam preparation for students and enhanced focus for sports enthusiasts and musicians.

Critical Incident/Stress Management
Critical incident stress management is an adaptive, short-term psychological helping-process that focuses solely on an immediate and identifiable problem. It can include pre-incident preparedness to acute crisis management to post-crisis follow-up. Our therapists are available in-office or on-site depending on the needs requirement.

Clinical Hypnosis
Clinical hypnosis is an altered state of awareness, perception or consciousness that is used, by licensed and trained doctors or masters prepared individuals, for treating a psychological or physical problem. It is a highly relaxed state. Hypnosis is a state of inner absorption, concentration and focused attention that can be used effectively in therapy to work with phobias, anxiety, sexual problems, alcoholism, smoking control, speech disorders, weight control, chronic pain, age regression therapy, self-esteem/ego strengthening, memory/concentration improvement, and forensic work.

Bereavement Support/Grief & Loss
Bereavement support can help identify the different stages of grief and validate the feelings that arise within the cycle.  Everyone will have their own way of dealing with grief but within the cycle we see five stages including, denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. These are a part of the framework that makes up our learning to live with the one we lost. They are tools to help us frame and identify what we may be feeling.
