Before we found Neurofeedback, our family was, at times, a little like a battleground. My son struggled with behaviors that cause himself and anyone near him great pain, as a result of some traumatic events and unmet needs in his infancy. Developmental Trauma, ADHD, lying, stealing, angry and violent outbursts were tearing our family apart, and robbing our son of self-esteem, friendships, trust and joy. —We found Neurofeedback through a local practitioner and began to see results after his first 30 days, but knew he needed more than we could afford. In addition, we wanted the whole family to benefit from brain training. Tina was fantastic and developed protocols for each family member. She took the time to have personal visits (via the web) with my son to build rapport and trust that he really needed to continue with brain training. She was available anytime we had questions or issues. Any issue that we did have was quickly resolved. As we progressed, if needed—she helped us to adjust protocols. My son has made such a turnaround! He has developed some amazing behaviors, and has become more open to feelings—instead of just exploding into anger. He remains off his ADHD meds, has begun to make friends, is genuinely happier and a joy to be around—truly. As a mother, neurofeedback, I think, helped me let go of the trauma and grief of not being able to meet my boy's needs in infancy. It helped me to respond to his, sometimes destructive behaviors with less angst—more empathy and come from a core of love, peace and acceptance. Which has totally improved our relationship and my ability to help him. I have learned so much, and yet there is so much I don't understand. But the one thing I do know, is that this brain training, and Tina—have truly saved our family, given us hope—and our home is a peaceful place!
Thanks so much Tina! —We could never have made this kind of progress without YOU—and BrainPaint®!
One year ago today my son stepped foot into school after being away for 9 months. We weren't able to get him into a car, let alone to walk back into school. Just days before this day, I had been crying with his principal saying we didn't think he was going to make it, but that I still had hope because you were to arrive the next day to begin working with him. 4 days later, he put his shoes on, eager to get to school to attend the annual ice cream social to drop off school supplies! He made it thanks to you. And continued through the year pushing each week to go. He ended the year with 4 quarters of straight As. He had an amazing summer going to pools, riding bikes and last week, took the train to a big mid-western city to see his beloved sports team win a game. He walked downtown enjoying the beautiful lake park and had an amazing day making memories with his Dad. And today, he's ready to head back to school for the ice cream social,excited to see his friends and drop off school supplies, ready to take on the year. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you for giving us hope, taking time to come out of state, and believing that what you had to offer could help. It did. And we are forever grateful. ❤️
