Neurofeedback is a form of Biofeedback that uses medical grade Electroencephalogram technology to evaluate the brainwaves of the client. It then uses specially designed games and operant conditioning to teach the brain to regulate itself better, with peak performance in mind. At CHOICES we use state of the art software developed by EEG Information and Education (Formerly EEG Spectrum Inc.)
There is a growing research base pointing to the efficacy of Neurofeedback and the positive outcomes of the treatment for individuals who struggle with attention and impulsivity, emotional regulation issues, trauma and anxiety. The use of Neurofeedback has been shown in numerious peer-reviewed studies to reduce the symptoms of ADD and PTSD among others, and sometimes reduce the need for medication in some clients. With peak performance, a slew of other benefits become apparent, from benefits to sleep and concentration to benefits to overall brain regulation. This exciting, expanding field shows a great deal of promise for both professionals, individuals and the community at large.

At this time we are unaware of insurances that pay for Neurofeedback. We encourage you to call and ask your insurance company about their policies regarding Neurofeedback. Billing Codes can be given for inquiry purposes.
Some insurance companies will allow Out of Network coverage for Neurofeedback. This is something that should be discussed with your insurance provider.
