Neurofeedback for Anxiety in Children in Santa Rosa, CA
The following is a parent testimonial:
I would highly recommend Sil Machado for anyone considering Neurofeedback.
We went to Sil because my 8 year old son was experiencing intense anxiety and behavioral issues exaggerated by his ADHD and a recent trauma.
Prior to starting neurofeedback our son was having anxiety about many situations. Nightimes were intense, often filled with tears, fear and the need for us to stay in his room until he fell asleep. He had anxiety about any new activity, trip or unknown. In addition, his ADHD was on hyperdrive and there was a lot of acting out, anger and overall lack of self control, despite being prescribed medication.
After seeing Sil once a week for about a month we started to see a shift in the intensity and frequency of the anxiety and extreme behaviors. We continue weekly appts for ____ months seeing continued progress and relief of anxiety and extreme ADHD behaviors. We completed our neurofeedback with my sons anxiety virtually non existent and some typical ADHD behaviors tha were now easily managed by a very small/low dosage of medication.
We are so appreciative of Sil's work!
