Certified Neurofeedback Practitioner through Brain Trainer International Chattanooga neurofeedback technician
My approach is to meet each client where they are and identify their individual brain patterns with a brain mapping. I then discuss that assessment with the client to identify the patterns they would like to change. A specific training plan is established based on what the client wants changed in their life such as sleeping better, reducing anxiety or depression, increasing focus and attention, decreasing or eliminating medication, achieving peak performance, etc.
Brain training does not “treat” issues. It allows a person to change their own brain and therefore release patterns that have created negative actions, emotions, or behaviors. This does, however, result in life-changing affects in the person’s life that are specific, measurable, and life-long.
I work with children, adolescents, and adults of all ages.
I have homeschooled my two daughters for years due to diagnoses of ADHD and Aspergers along with anxiety and depression. When brain training was suggested after everything else had failed, I mustered up hope one more time. The outcome was so completely miraculous that I knew I had to pursue this for my whole family. I started my journey to learn and obtain certification in this science to help others along with my family. My passion is watching individuals be free from medication, anxiousness, struggles in school, and lack of focus…..permanently!

"I have been fascinated with psychology and the way humans operate since before I began my college career. My desire and need for understanding the diversity in human nature, that varies from one individual to another, led me to the world of psychology. The more I learned, the more I appreciated the helping profession, but it seemed limited to me. The two reasons I feel led to help others is my Christian faith and my overcoming adversity as a child into adulthood. As a Christian, I want to pour into helping others of all backgrounds with no judgment or criticism. As someone who has endured mental and emotional abuse, I empathize with those who have suffered through abuse. I know how it feels to feel trapped inside a shell of fear because of those circumstances I did not choose. However, there is always a way to be better. Human beings are diverse in every single aspect, and I firmly believe being in the helping profession. We must cater to each individual’s specific needs and not treat them according to a textbook-based demographic. This way of thinking is what led me to inquire about working for Pathways Neurofeedback. I had never heard of neurofeedback brain training before I started working for Pathways. It was and still is a whole new world of helping people. With each new piece of information I learn about neurofeedback, I see the importance and benefits of it across the diverse group of people who receive brain training. A system of training that is catered to each person’s specific set of needs exists and is why I am super excited to continue my journey working with Pathways."

She shares her views:
"...as a mental health counseling intern I found that there is so much more happening in a person than meets the eye. Studying interpersonal neurobiology led me to become interested in neurofeedback as I learned more about how our brains are formed and how pathways in the brain can be shifted and changed. Brain plasticity means we aren't stuck the way we are! We have an incredible capacity to grow and change, even on a neurological level! It's this realization that led me to seek out more about this incredible brain training program."

She shares her views:
“I have always been passionate about mental health and the importance it has in a balanced life. Through my career in Emergency Medical Services I have seen the toll that poor mental health takes and the underserved population that this crisis goes unnoticed in. Whether the symptoms are debilitating or you just want to optimize your life and become your highest functioning, happiest self, neurofeedback is for you! It’s for all of us! The brain has an amazing regenerative capacity to promote new learning circuits and habits to benefit you in the part of your life you need most. I have studied medicine & neuropsychology and am thrilled to be a provider for a holistic therapy that incorporates both without the use of pharmaceuticals.”
"Neurofeedback was introduced to me by my daughter’s counselor when she was 9 years old. She was struggling with ADHD, anxiety, anger management, and depression. When counseling sessions and medications were only helping her to get through the day, I turned to neurofeedback as a last resort. My husband and I were astounded at the change we saw. We witnessed all the burdening symptoms that had weighed her down for years being peeled away week after week. After experiencing how neurofeedback changed life for my daughter and our family, I pursued learning to become a neurofeedback technician. My goal is to help every client along their journey to the life they want and the person they aspire to be."
