Welcome, just to people with brains!
Especially those who want "Their brain, better." That's where I come in.
I am Lauren King, a licensed clinical therapist with offices near 135th and Metcalf. To quote from the greeters at our hometown Gates BBQ, "Hi, may I help you?"
I used to only do what I was originally trained to do: Talk Therapy. But now I offer what I have come to believe are the top two of three basic forms of brain therapy: NeuroFeedback, and Talk Therapy. In other words, I am not a psychiatrist, so I do not perform the third recognized popular form of brain therapy: medication. I do not write scrips or dispense medications to alter brain function.
The reason I am so excited to be also offering NeuroFeedback is--I discovered it worked best for me, following a car accident where I was T-boned in a parking lot. I had seizures, still do. And the best and in fact the only thing that has appeared to work for me is--NeuroFeedback.
It also works on dozens of other conditions, chronic ones including ADHD. More on that in subsequent posts. Please subscribe via the new website, NeuroTalkKC.com, which will be working by mid September.
Why is NeuroFeedback the new GPS solution for many brains?
If you were driving and encountered a detour, the modern way to navigate is to turn on your phone to Google Maps (or Garmin, made in Olathe, pretty cool, huh.) And the GPS would REROUTE YOU --navigate you to a shorter or better route. Well, that's exactly what NeuroFeedback does.
I liken NF to GPS for the detoured, confused or misdirected brain. Painless, 30 minute treatments. After I determine which sectors will respond to treatment, I tape electrodes to select parts of your scalp (no shaving, I promise!). You watch your choice of 20 pleasant videos...eg sailboats or flowers that morph from one scene to the next.
So then what happens? Somehow your brain loves to reroute around a detour.
GPS link broken for now
Your brain connects in new ways and wires a new neural pathway without your efforting at all. As your concentration grows, you are 'rewarded' by pleasant dings. And the 'game' is to increase your ding score in each session. I give you a report card to complete between sessions, to help you notice any better outcomes, or report any stresses or changes in your life. , until you find yourself thinking better and making better decisions or accomplishing your goals with greater ease.
Is this a forever thing? No.
Usually two sessions a week is optimal. For a finite number of sessions, usually between 20 and 100. So it's not like eternal meds. Once the brain has embraced the better route, you don't need to continue with NeuroFeedback.
