Mental Health Care & Brain Mapping in Denver that You Can Trust
Are you looking to understand your behavior through a more in depth process than counseling alone?
We offer brain mapping, counseling and neurofeedback technology locally here in Denver.
What is a Brain Map?
A Brain Map, or QEEG, reads baseline electrical activity on the surface of your skull. The data is processed and reviewed with you by your clinician. The patterns learned from a brain map show patterns that are associated with behavioral patterns such as anxiety, depression, OCD and more.
Why Do I Need a Brain Map?
Sometimes specific neurological pathways overperform or underperform, which leads to undesirable mental health concerns. With quality care driven by brain mapping in Denver, you can better understand and identify the locations and nature of these imbalances, and we can also more accurately advise effective treatment plans through counseling and neurofeedback.
The brain map shows your clinician where they can help to alleviate symptoms of many neurological disorders, ranging from anxiety and depression to more serious mental health disorders like TBI and concussions, through a customized neurofeedback program.
We are excited and confident in our ability to provide modern and ethical options for your mental health driven by data from QEEGs to help you better understand your brain and behaviors.
What Happens After My Brain Map?
We believe in a specialized, scientifically-backed approach to mental health based on your brain's unique patterns. Your clinician will inform you of your options for talk therapy, neurofeedback or a combination of the two.
Our counseling style offers clients the ability to complete talk therapy sessions with the comfort of understanding your brain's unique patterns and how they may show in behavior. Understanding your brain — one of the most complex organs in the body — and how life events have affected your cognitive functioning, is a process that is unique to Connected Brain Counseling.
5 Steps to Get Started with Brain Mapping & Neurofeedback
Step 1: Complete a 20-minute phone consultation with one of our two licensed therapists.
Step 2: Schedule your QEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram) Brain Map to measure baseline brainwave patterns and activity that are contributing to your mental health concerns.
Step 3: Review the QEEG Brain Map data with your clinician. The cost of the QEEG Brain Map includes an hour long data review, where both you and your counselor will be informed of the complex neurofunctioning that makes you, you. This data will help guide your therapeutic process, serving as a reference point as you participate in neurofeedback, talk therapy and other integrative offerings.
Step 4: You are in the driver's seat. Attend Neurofeedback Sessions, Individual Counseling, Couples/Family Counseling -- or a variety of the bunch! We are here to inform you of options that best support your goals.
Step 5: Mental health is complex. Referrals to other forms of health such as personal training, nutrition consulting, integrative medical doctors and more can all positively impact your health. Take advantage of our partnerships and continue to thrive.
Relationships: What Makes Us Different
We believe in the power of human connection, authenticity, and empirically-based practice. While some mental health clinics operate on a large scale, we understand the importance of one-on-one connection and consistency, which informs our brain mapping, neurofeedback and counseling.
Research shows that building rapport is one of the most important factors to consider in the therapeutic relationship (Arbidto & Rabellino, 2011). Your QEEG, experience in counseling and neurofeedback are no exception. You can expect to work closely with one therapist who knows you well and tracks your progress weekly.
The Connected Brain Counseling Approach to Women and Trauma
We understand the strength it takes to tell your story. Validation without judgement is a key part of this process. Working with a therapist who not only understands the emotional burden that trauma can cause but also utilizes empirically backed techniques to help you find relief is our specialty.
Our approach capitalizes on the fact that women who have experienced trauma are not broken. Rather, they are in need of the right type of support with gentle encouragement toward a new way of understanding their lived experience.
