Family Member Quotes
“Doing Neurofeedback with talk therapy, for both my son and as a family, was important and extremely helpful. The change in my son was fairly dramatic. He understands that he will have to deal with some level of depression and anxiety, however he now has awareness about the tools and resources that can help him. Jeff is an excellent family therapist, he is a gifted and skilled practitioner.”
“Neurofeedback changed my daughter for the better. She started smiling again, interacting with family, and laughing. [WCCNC] literally saved my family.”
“Getting him off the meds has been HUGE! I was so worried about what his life was going to be like if he had to stay on them. While things like focus, motivation and anger outbursts have clearly improved, the amazing thing is how he has become more affectionate. He actually cuddles, and he is able to cry–things he didn’t do before.”
“I no longer have the constant anxiety I used to. I can now focus for long periods of time at work without getting distracted. The staff are exceptional; they are very friendly, knowledgable, and were understanding of my issues. I would highly recommend neurofeedback and/or counseling at Western Connecticut Center for Neurofeedback and Counseling for anyone struggling with a mental health issue.”
