Frequently Asked Questions


Frequently Asked Questions

How is neurofeedback done?

Electrodes are placed on the scalp, so that through the use of an amplifier the computer can read the brain wave activity.

What does it feel like? Is it painful?

Most people do not feel anything. Some have reported that they feel a movement in their head, similar to a heartbeat.

How long do the electrodes need to stay in place?

It will vary from session to session. Usually for only a few minutes, but it could be as long as 20 minutes.

How do you decide where to place the electrodes and how long will a session be?

During the first session, I will make a determination based on the client’s psychological assessment, as well the results from the sensitivity and central nervous system questionnaires. Further treatment sessions are determined by how the client has responded to the previous sessions.

How many sessions will it take before I notice results?

Some notice a change immediately. For others it can take several sessions. Each client creates a list of what changes they would like to see occur. Once they achieve this, then we begin to extend the time between sessions to see if the changes can be maintained.

How often are the sessions?

Weekly.

Will insurance cover this?

It depends on your plan; I am available to discuss this with each individual.
