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 spent 4 years enlisted and 20 years as a commissioned officer in the United States Air Force. I've had a very eclectic life with many extreme high points and deep low points. All of these have given me an appreciation that we all struggle and there is always more to know about someone. I am blessed to support Stacey, as she did me, during my military career. Now I get to serve her in her passion of helping people!

"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."
Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from University of Mount Olive.
"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."

"I graduated from Western Kentucky University in nursing. At the start of my career, I worked at a children's psychiatric hospital in Bowling Green, KY. Seeing all the children having mental issues and being heavily medicated made it the most difficult job I have ever experienced.
My son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was in the third grade. He was having rage issues, his grades were failing, and he would come home saying he felt like he was a bad kid. I felt helpless that we had to medicate him and it brought back memories of the psychiatric unit. He needed help and we thought medicine was our only option.
We found Pathways Neurofeedback when I was looking for an alternative to medicine. Now my whole family are clients and are training our brains. It has been incredible to see how people can change their lives through brain training and to know that there are options other than medicine."
Bachelor of Arts from Covenant College - Lookout Mountain, GA.
"I love contributing to the success of helping others have a holistically healthy life by focusing on brain health. I love to help people take steps that get them closer to their goals and dreams. As a soccer coach and trainer, I have been fortunate enough to tangibly help youth in Chattanooga become more confident and begin to find clarity concerning their life values. I have always been drawn toward working in a team setting.
One of my core values is consistency, because I believe it promotes the perfect environment for growth. As a result, I try to demonstrate persistence in the way I live and work so that I can celebrate successes, overcome failures, and remain determined to give it my all. This mindset along with my experiences have prepared me for this role as a Neurofeedback Technician. I am so excited to help clients flourish and have happy, healthy lives."
