Change starts from within...
The effectiveness of neurofeedback and neurotherapy for addressing a variety of brain-based conditions is endorsed by decade's worth of research. However, if you are not familiar with what neurofeedback/neurotherapy is, it can be a challenge to understand how it works and how it can help you.
Not all types of neurofeedback are as equally effective. Success with any neurofeedback program is dependent on an understanding of your unique brain. Our system of neurofeedback/neurotherapy is more precise than other modalities with treatment customized to your personal brain. We are one of the few neurostimulation clinics in the southwest and the only one that combines neurostimulation with heart rate variability and audio-visual entrainment. If you have not found success with other types of neurofeedback, this lack of customization could be why. We at Tucson Neurotherapy consider the QEEG brain, around which treatment is based, an essential tool in understanding and treating you as a whole person.
With the help of a competent, research has demonstrated that neurotherapy is safe, effective, and compatible with other treatment modalities, such as psychotherapy, medication, and lifestyle adjustments.

This picture is an example of a man wearing an electrode cap and receiving neurofeedback therapy. Sensitive electrodes on the cap record brainwave patterns and feed them back into specialized software. Through visual and auditory signals, the brain is rewarded for producing certain desirable patterns and ignored when those patterns are not produced.
In time, the brain learns to generate desirable patterns on its own and this change often correlates with real improvements in one's quality of life.
Counseling at Tucson Neurotherapy
Neurotherapy can be especially effective when combined with counseling. While neurostimulation reroutes dysfunctional brainwave patterns at the source, psychotherapy may assist with practical tools that reinforce new brainwave patterns and help achieve therapeutic goals.
Our clinical psychotherapist Kay Vesely, LMFT has been working as a licensed therapist for 30 years and has counseled innumerable couples and individuals. She specializes in working with veterans while the neurotherapist specializes in cognitive skills coaching.

Supporting your goals
See if our programs are right for you.
Not simply standardized care, our Tucson clinic offers a fully-customized treatment alternative for a variety of brain-based conditions. We work to teach the brain new patterns of healthy functioning to improve quality of life. All of our programs are tailored to each clients' unique brain-wave patterns. Initial intake assessment includes the use of QEEG brain mapping around which our treatment programs are designed.
What We Specialize In
We work together with a team of licensed clinicians to design effective therapeutic programs.
Overall, the field of EEG biofeedback offers a neuroscience-based intervention program which research has supported for a host of problems in human behavior and cognition. In my practice, the use of EEG biofeedback has become the primary initial intervention model for any problems in cognition, such as learning disability, attention deficit disorder, and traumatic brain injury. The approach offers the only effective intervention model for these problems."

Neurofeedback treatment for many disorders such as ADHD, depression, anxiety, seizures, and others has been shown to be highly effective with long term lasting results. There are hundreds of published studies and several books demonstrating this."

We tend to think of the brain in terms of its other critical physical and chemical domains. But its plasticity, its ability to change and to learn, seems to lay primarily in its electrical, oscillatory properties—in short, in the way it fires."
