BONUS!

Couples have the option to add on qEEG Brain Maps to better understand the unique functioning of each other's brains at a discounted rate (when participating in the premarital counseling in Denver CO).

Our style of Couples Counseling is based in Terry Reals' Relational Life Therapy (RLT). We focus on attachment styles, understanding gender constructs, actively teaching your partner how to respond to you in real time and how to gently encourage deeper connection each and every session. 
In session, you can expect direct communication from our pre-marriage counselor that is coated in empathy and grace for the relationship. There is no one size fits all to couples counseling so we encourage you to communicate with your therapist on what works for you (and what doesn't!) so you can get the most out of your time in couples counseling.

  • What is neurofeedback?
    Neurofeedback at home teaches the brain through operant conditioning (think Pavlov's dog!) how to adjust electrical patterns and neuronal connections that contribute to difficulty in behavioral change. More details can be found here.
  • Are there any negative side effects to neurofeedback?
    Remote neurofeedback therapy is an incredibly safe modality that works within the natural processes of your brain. At the worst, some of our clients report minor headaches, agitation, or a brief disruption in sleep. In general, most clients leave feeling relaxed or neutral.
  • What psychiatric disorders does neurofeedback treat?
    While most brains can benefit from neurofeedback to increase feelings of peace, joy, and overall wellbeing...the conditions that neurofeedback most commonly treats include generalized anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, PTSD/C-PTSD, insomnia, memory loss, and more. These disorders are well studied and documented to have positive results. Talk to our counselors in Denver for more details.
  • Are the results of neurofeedback permanent?
    Relatively, yes! While no treatment program can completely ease the effects of unpredicted stress or future trauma, our clients tend to feel more resilient and confident in managing stressors without neurofeedback after their treatment program. The vast majority of our clients end their program with a 30-70% reduction in symptom severity and only visit us and talk to our counselors in Denver CO for "tune ups" in the face of extreme stress or newly developed trauma.
  • How does neurofeedback therapy help behavioral change?
    Neurofeedback at home therapy assists in calming the nervous system which allows the client greater access to making behavioral changes. Many individuals know they need to change a behavior, but their nervous system is acting from a trauma response that keeps them in repetitive destruction patterns. Neurofeedback regulates the brain to a calmer, safer baseline state that then allows the client to mindfully choose new behaviors and perspectives with the assistance of a licensed therapist.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    We do not currently accept insurance. We accept HSA/FSA cards and are able to provide superbills at request.
  • Can I complete EMDR, TMS or another form of trauma treatment while completing neurofeedback sessions?
    Yes! Many of our clients take a holistic and well-rounded approach like cognitive behavioral therapy services to mental health treatment and complete multiple types of treatment at once. Your counselors in Denver CO will discuss the implications of completing multiple forms of therapy at once during your consultation. We suggest completing talk therapy with your neurofeedback therapy program at a minimum in order to gain the most benefit from your time with us.
  • How many sessions of remote neurofeedback therapy do I need to complete?
    Most clients complete a minimum of 40 sessions, with some requiring 80+ sessions with our counselors in Denver CO. The number of sessions a brain needs is determined from a QEEG Brain Map. We re-evaluate your progress every 10 sessions to discuss what changes you feeling or not feeling, and adjust protocols depending on data fluctuations. With this level of detail paid to your progress, you will likely not need more than the quoted amount of sessions.
  • I have more questions! Who can I talk to about Neurofeedback and see if it's right for me?
    We offer free 20 minute consultations with our counselors in Denver CO for clients interested in neurofeedback, counseling, or the combination of the two! Schedule your free consultation online here to get started with your journey to mental health healing.
  • What is the difference between biofeedback and neurofeedback?
    Neurofeedback is a subcategory of biofeedback. Biofeedback works on bodily functions such as heart rate and body temperature to help regulate the nervous system. Remote neurofeedback therapy works specifically on brain waves to help regulate symptoms associated with mental health such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADD, insomnia, and more.
  • How many times a week should I do neurofeedback?
    We recommend you train two to three times a week consistently with our counselors in Denver CO in order to gain the most out of your program. Brief absences from training are not detrimental, however if you are going to be gone for over a month during your time with us we suggest you wait to start your program until you return from your time away.
  • Is neurofeedback FDA approved?
    Yes! Neurofeedback at home therapy is FDA approved as a safe and effective form of treatment for mental health symptoms especially when combined with other modalities such as counseling.
  • Does neurofeedback help kids and adults with ADD?
    Yes! ADD and ADHD are some of the most well studied diagnoses for neurofeedback therapy. Read up on our specialty page here
  • Can neurofeedback cure trauma?
    qEEG Brain Mapping and Neurofeedback therapy can help ease symptoms of trauma by regulating the brain, taking it out of "fight or flight" mode and help increase patterns of mindfulness and mood regulation. It is also proven to help ease symptoms of anxiety, depression, OCD and others that may co-occur with trauma. Talk to our counselors in Denver CO or read more on our page here.
  • How to find a good therapist in Denver
    We suggest you start at our "Meet the Team" page here to see if any of our therapists are a good fit for you. If not, resources such as Psychology Today allow you to filter the type of therapist or counselors in Denver CO you are looking to work with based on symptom and goal to help you find the right therapist in Denver for you.
  • Do you accept insurance for counseling?
    We do not currently accept insurance. We accept HSA/FSA cards and are able to provide superbills at request.
  • Is neurofeedback at home effective?
    Up until recently, the technology for at home neurofeedback training systems was not proven to be as effective as in office equipment. With the field rapidly growing, though, new options for at home neurofeedback that are effective are hitting the market. Our counselors in Denver CO conduct consults to see if the type of equipment we offer is right for you and what types of results you can expect to see in office vs at home in a training program.
  • How often do I train with my at home neurofeedback program?
    Most clients are asked to train 3-4 times a week with their neurofeedback at home program. Some clients will train as often as daily to start depending on symptom severity and what is learned from your qEEG Brain Map.
  • What is the investment for an at home neurofeedback program?
    All remote neurofeedback training programs start at $600 for the initial qEEG Brain Map. This includes two hours of data collection and reviewing data with a clinician. Clients will purchase their headset for $250 (which can be used with multiple family members in the home). The monthly charge for remote training after that is $600/month. We do not have contracts and clients are free to end training at any time. Talk to our counselors in Denver CO to learn more.
  • What conditions can at home neurofeedback training treat?
    Empirical evidence shows that neurofeedback at home training can ease symptom severity for conditions including anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADD/ADHD, insomnia, and more.
  • What happens if I end an at home neurofeedback training program prematurely?
    You can expect to feel some benefit from the training you completed prior to ending your program, however the longevity and permanency of these results cannot be guaranteed without an adequate amount of time being trained with our counselors in Denver CO.
