Additional Services from Family Compass
Neurofeedback and Adult Therapies are also services that we offer at Family Compass
Neurofeedback in our practice is part of an integrated approach to the treatment of a broad range of challenges – anxiety and attention disorders as well as developmental challenges.
Neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback, directly trains brain function by providing the participant with real-time feedback on brainwave activity through a specially constructed program with video games and movies. The brain is trained to function more efficiently, and self-regulation improves, through more optimal functioning of the nervous system.
In some cases self-regulation improves within 1 or 2 sessions, though changes deepen, broaden, and become more consistent as sessions continue. We closely monitor progress through weekly parent symptom checklists.
While most of our work is with children and teens, some of our staff also specialize in working with adults. We provide individual therapy to some of the parents of children we work with, as well as other adults who are referred to our practice. We address a wide range of challenges, including relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, and life’s dilemmas.
Changes that occur vary from person to person depending on the individual’s symptoms
The following improvements have been noted with neurofeedback:

- Becoming more goal-oriented and motivated.
- Feelings of depression and anxiety are resolved.

How frequent are sessions?
Sessions usuallyoccur once per week. Typically one would expect to see changes in targeted behavior relatively quickly. Certain problems with self regulation usually begin to improvein 4-5 treatment sessions.
