About Our Process
For your convenience, we have two Tucson-based clinics: one to the southwest of the city and the other in downtown Tucson. Our team is led by licensed mental health professionals who work under the guidance of licensed psychologists. So that we may be better able to create lasting, positive shifts for our clients, each member of our staff has completed the minimum requirements to obtain board certification in QEEG and Biofeedback.
Each neurotherapy session takes approximately 1-hour. In many cases, positive shifts are seen after 5 sessions, with more lasting changes noted after 10 sessions. After every 10 sessions, we conduct another QEEG in order to assess the effectiveness of our treatment regimen and make adjustments when appropriate.
We ask that each individual commit to at least 3 sessions per week at the start of treatment. Brain training can be likened to an exercise regimen, where the best results are obtained through consistently-spaced sessions, on an intense basis, and at frequent intervals. Results obtained through brain training, like those obtained via exercise, will more likely ‘stick’ if more sessions are completed in less time versus being spaced out to the frequency of (for example) one session per week.
Over the course of treatment, this session frequency can then be dialed back as goals are met. A treatment regimen that began as 3 sessions per week can then be adjusted to 1 or 2 sessions per week or 1 session every other week until the conclusion of the treatment protocol.
