What Is Neurofeedack Therapy?
Neurofeedback (also known as neurotherapy or EEG-biofeedback) is a non-invasive tool to retrain your brain. Think of it like physical therapy for your brain. You can learn tools to increase the control, flexibility and resiliency of your mind and mental performance.
Neurofeedback therapy is a non-invasive tool to help you teach your brain how to enhance its performance. It has been scientifically shown to help people with a range of symptoms and medical problems. Thanks to advances in this technology, you can also now train in the comfort of your own home.
The Science Behind EEG-Biofeedback
Neurofeedback uses positive reinforcement to enhance performance. In other words, every time your brain is showing improvement, you are rewarded.
Raise your right arm. Good. How did you do you that? How do you know that you successfully did it? Most people will say their brain sent a signal to their arm, and they know they did it because they could feel it and see it. Now, increase the relaxation in your brain. Decrease mental fog. You cannot see that or easily understand what it would feel like to make those changes. That is why neurofeedback is so powerful. I can teach you how to change those brainwave patterns while showing them to you on a screen.
There are two kind of Neurofeedback systems: passive and active. Passive systems send a signal to your brain to help jump start it. This is a gentle process, and is NOT shock therapy. Active Neurofeedback requires you to be engaged in the process. A machine reads your brainwaves, and you are rewarded when you show improvement. There are several reasons you might choose passive or active neurofeedback. Active generally provides more permanent change and leaves the client in control.
Passive can create faster change and puts the machine in control more than the client. You can learn more about Neurofeedback research by visiting The International Society for Neuroregulation and Research.
The Benefits Of Neurofeedback Therapy
Neurofeedback when combined with other traditional psychotherapy practices can help with a wide variety of conditions.
Meet Your Neurofeedback Expert
Dr David Helfand, PsyD
I have been studying and working in the field of neurofeedback and mental health for over a decade.

I look forward to helping you as well.
NeuroMeditation & In-Home Neurofeedback Training
Get The Most Benefit From Neurofeedback Therapy Training
Most people want fast results, so I offer two options to maximizing your training and decrease how long you will have to practice neurofeedback.
Remote neurofeedback training allows you to access unlimited sessions for a set monthly fee. You also have the convenience of training at any time instead of waiting for a session with a doctor, which also saves you time commuting for appointment.
NeuroMeditation allows me to watch someone’s brainwaves as they meditate. It can save years of struggle and not only enhance your meditation practice, but give you a lifelong skill that will cut your neurofeedback therapy sessions by about 50%.
What To Expect
Most clients train their brain 1 to 3 times per week for about 3 to 6 months. All training is currently offered remotely or in person, and you must have a brain map before starting your therapy.
Curious About Brain Mapping?
A Brain map is like a multi-point inspection of your brain’s performance, and it is a required step before beginning neurofeedback training.
My daughter has had 5 neurofeedback sessions and she just told me that she is feeling better. She thinks the treatment at LifeWise has helped her brain. About 5 years ago, she had a severe reaction to a medication, which left her brain in a compromised state. She said her brain has been slowly recovering on its own over the last 5 years but doing neurofeedback at LifeWise has accelerated her recovery just in the past few weeks! She believes in neurofeedback now even though she had a bad experience at another office, and I just want to thank you so much for helping her out!
Frequently Asked Questions
I use amplitude neurofeedback training that keeps the client in control of their brain. I find this provides the best long-term results. If you are interested in other kinds of neurotherapy, I can help advise on what is available in the current marketplace.
Brain maps are $750 which includes the test in the office, analysis, and all recommendations.
The general fee for office visits is $300 per session, however we also offer packages of 5 or 10 sessions that bring the cost down to as low as $200 per visit.
Many clients prefer home-training because of the convenience and affordability. When using in-home neurofeedback, you get unlimited sessions on your own. The first month is $1650 which includes 4 live trainings with Dr H. All additional months are $750 and include 1 live training with Dr H. Family discounts are also available for in-home training.
Most clients finish their treatment in 3-6 months. If you include NeuroMeditation practices, you can often cut your total time in half.
Not usually unless a significant event has occurred (i.e. trauma, major stressor, car accident). Some clients do find that working on a few goals initially is most helpful, and then returning to work on additional goals about a year later continues to improve their performance.
