The good news is, anxiety is very treatable! To help you feel better, we combine counseling with neurofeedback to optimize your brain wave activity. As a result, clients report feeling calmer, better able to focus and in better control of their emotions. Neurofeedback is our “secret weapon” that greatly amplifies the results of anxiety treatment. It works for children and adults.
One of our board certified neurotherapists will perform a 19-point QEEG brain scan to measure your brain wave activity. It’s a painless, simple procedure for you. You simply relax in a comfortable chair and wear a cap with special sensors that will track the electrical impulses from your brain waves. We’ll measure your brain wave activity for several minutes with your eyes open and again for several minutes with your eyes closed.
Anxiety can be mistaken for ADHD, especially in young kids. Anxiety in children can lead to more emotional problems, temper tantrums, mood swings and irritability–they don’t know how to control their emotions. A QEEG allows us to determine if it’s anxiety or ADHD or even depression, because kids with depression usually have more agitation. We can treat you more effectively if we know exactly what the problem is.
While we don’t prescribe supplements (or medications), one supplement that is recommended for anxiety is L-theanine. L-theanine is an amino acid supplement and is safe for adults and kids. (We have used it on our children.) You can chew it, like a mint gum. You can buy it at any health food store or on Amazon here.
