10 simple steps for success and results:

  • Use ‘talk therapy’ to change thoughts and feelings
  • Use cutting-edge brain technology to correct underlying problems
  • Understand how exercise improves brain function
  • Get clear on what to eat and avoid to achieve personal peak performance
  • Create healthy and wonderful relationships
  • Protect your brain by avoiding toxins, chemicals, and head injury
  • Manage your stress on a daily basis
  • Exercise your brain as you would your body
  • Improve your sleep
  • Change those behaviors that don’t serve you anymore

This system employs a holistic approach to helping people improve their lives. All the steps of the system can be used separately or in conjunction with each other but the best results are obtained from incorporating each step.

One component of The Brain Power System for Creating Outrageous Success™ is traditional psychotherapy or ‘talk therapy’. Many relevant therapy techniques are employed but the major technique we use is Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT uses talk therapy to help a client change their thoughts, feelings, and behavior in positive ways that helps them feel better about themselves and their lives. CBT helps improve:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Self Esteem
  • Anger Management
  • Addictions
  • School SuccesS
  • Grief
  • Decision Making
  • Stress Management
  • Sleep
  • Career Success
  • Peak Performance

And helps clients deal with:

  • Relationships
  • Parenting Skills
  • Adolescence
  • Career Success
  • Medical Illness
  • Divorce
  • Social Skills
  • Loss
  • ADHD/ADD
  • And MORE!

Another component of The Brain Power System for Creating Outrageous Success™ uses cutting edge brain technology. One element of this is called Neurofeedback which uses painless, non-invasive, state of the art technology to help a person regulate their brain. It is being used worldwide by athletes, performers, business owners, students, and people just like you. Neurofeedback helps improve:

  • Concentration
  • Hyperactivity
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Headaches
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Sleep
  • Addictions
  • Memory
  • Panic Attacks
  • Teeth Grinding
  • Brain Injury
  • And more!

Neurofeedback is a computer-based biofeedback system that gives information to the client about what their brainwaves are doing. The client plays a video game without using their hands—just by changing their brainwaves. This exercise helps the brain to re-regulate itself and thus can impact most things the brain controls!

The Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics of North America states that Neurofeedback meets their clinical guidelines for treatment of ADHD, depression, anxiety (including OCD, PTSD, Generalized anxiety, phobias), depression, reading disabilities, addictions and seizures. Studies show that Neurofeedback works as well as stimulant medication for ADHD, and improves concentration, depression, panic attacks, anxiety, sleep, learning disabilities, addictions, stress, anger, impulse control, hyperactivity, and much more.

After the initial assessment is done, a Neurofeedback training protocol is designed specifically for the individual. Sensors are placed on the scalp at appropriate sites to treat the issues of concern. The client’s brainwaves (the actual Electroencephalograph – EEG) are sent to a computer. The computer displays a video game that the client plays without using their hands – just by changing their brainwaves. Through a process of operant conditioning the client is rewarded when they change their brainwaves appropriately. The reward consists of ‘beeps’, game motion, points, etc. Very quickly, the brain figures out how to make the game go. The original research was done with cats. They were rewarded with milk and chicken broth. Humans apparently with do anything for a ‘beep’.

Another element of the cutting edge technology used in the Brain Power System for Outrageous Success is Heart Rate Variability training. Scientists have found that when people focus their attention in the heart area and activate a core heart feeling, they immediately shift their heart rhythms. A core heart feeling is a positive emotion such as care, love, appreciation, gratitude, or happiness. Research has shown that experiencing core heart feelings puts the heart into coherence.

Studies have shown that depression and anxiety improve when people practice putting their heart into coherence by imagining core heart feelings. In fact, core heart feelings actually play a greater role in increasing our health and longevity than age, blood pressure, cholesterol, or smoking. We use a cutting edge biofeedback program (EmWave) used in studies that gives you information (feedback) about what your heart rate variability is and teaches you to put your heart into coherence. When using the EmWave program you can actually see your heart rate variability change as you imagine feelings of appreciation, gratitude, love, or caring. As you learn to regulate your heart rate, you indirectly regulate your brain.

How quickly can this work?

That all depends on you and the work you put into it…Conventionally, traditional talk therapy can take anywhere from an average of 12 sessions on up to several years. Neurofeedback typically takes 20-40 session. See Interview with Deb where this is discussed fully.

Does it work?

Yes…see FAQ’s page

The result of our work is an approach to improving your life tailored to your specific needs and desires (see Client Testimonials). Understand that it’s not a “quick fix,” it’s not magic and it takes several months for you to plant the seeds and for those seeds to grow. My clients who have diligently applied every step of The Brain Power System for Creating Outrageous Success Program™ have improved their mood, their concentration, their sleep, their overall success in their lives and their relationships and, in much less time than they would have on their own. Best of all, most clients are excited to report that they felt the investment they made in themselves or their children was well worth it.

I’m known to work best with people who are serious about making positive change in their life. Often, but not always, my clients have tried almost everything else and feel desperate for improvement in their lives or the lives of their children. My clients get excellent results because they are motivated, they want change now, and they make this treatment a priority in their lives. Often they do not know where to start, so I work with them to understand where they’ve been, how they got where they are, and explore options for changing their future. I don’t enjoy working with whiners or skeptics or people who make excuses because the results aren’t the same. So, I need you to know that I’m very selective in who I work with.
