Our first NeuroCare Center aka: Neurofeedback Maui was was established in May of 2016 in Maui, Hawai’i.
We opened our center after searching for alternative brain-based treatments for clients who I knew psychotherapy would not be enough to effect a significant change. I saw clients struggling to save their mental health; in and out of residential, outpatient, and psychiatric treatment centers and bouncing from one therapist to the next. Many have severe trauma, which my training informed me takes root in the primitive, subcortical (non-verbal) regions of the brain. Just how do we advance our techniques to go straight to the source of “injury” and help people reclaim their lives?
My research led me to Neurofeedback, and I was stunned to learn no one was using this incredible, research-based treatment, clinically. From there, our first Neurofeedback center was born. Dr. Deborah Stote, UCLA trained Clinical Psychologist and Behavioral Neuroscientist was a key contributor to the center’s start, bringing with her invaluable expertise in neuropsychology. With the help of Dr. Stote, and Dr. Domijon, Behavioral Neuroscientist and thirty-year University of Texas Professor, we held an educational training for Hawai’i professionals on the benefits of Neurofeedback for Addictions and Traumatic Brain Injuries.
Since our doors opened in May of 2016, I have solely focused on improving brain-directed care and client outcomes. We have seen hundreds of satisfied clients and witnessed countless transformative experiences.
