In response to increasing calls from government and health authorities to limit all but essential personal, social, and business contact with others so as to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, I have made the decision to temporarily close my psychology practice office and limit my psychology practice to televideo consultations with my current patients as may be practical or necessary until the current COVID-19 emergency lifts.
Effective Friday, March 20, I am cancelling all currently booked patient appointments and not accepting any new patients until at least the end of May -- very possibly longer.
I will be keeping in touch with my currently active treatment patients by e-mail (email@example.com) or telephone (780.318.0446) and will let all know immediately when I will be re-opening my practice and re-booking appointments. New patient consultations already booked for times beyond May 31st will need to be re-confirmed as their appointment dates come closer.
For those few patients whose treatment has been largely counselling as opposed to in-office biofeedback or neurofeedback sessions, arrangements may be made to continue services via an on-line televideo service such as SKYPE. That said, all my patients are welcome to continue contact with me via e-mail.
This decision has been difficult for me to make but your safety and the safety of all those that you come into contact with... family and friends and the general public... must remain the highest priority.
God bless you all and please keep well.

Edmonton Neurotherapy offers quantitative EEG brain imaging and neurometric analysis of brain functioning as well as non-invasive brain stimulation, neuromodulation and neurofeedback approaches to the remediation of a variety of psychoneurophysiological disorders.
Quantitative electroencephalographic (QEEG) brain imaging and neurometric analysis (often called EEG brain-mapping) are assessment tools used to objectively and scientifically evaluate brain functioning on the basis of neuronal electrical activity within the cortex as recorded from the scalp using non-invasive surface electrodes placed in multiple standardized locations using the International 10-20 Electrode Placement System. QEEG neurometric analysis and brain-mapping techniques have scientifically documented ability to aid in the evaluation of such psychoneurophysiological conditions as ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, anxiety, depression, concussion and other brain injury, stroke, epilepsy, and dementia. The information obtained from a QEEG assessment of brain functioning is also an important first step in the development of appropriate neurotherapy treatment plans. For more information on QEEG assessment, GOTO: QEEG Brain-Mapping
Neurotherapy is a broad term that includes a number of related technologies that help the brain to normalize and optimize its functioning and assist in correcting cognitive inefficiencies. Neurotherapy techniques take advantage of new brain imaging research that clearly shows how the brain is constantly changing itself in response to experience and its own activity... a concept called "neuroplasticity".
For a truly excellent and highly readable exposition on the topic of neuroplascity and the endless adaptability of the human brain, please read: "The Brain That Changes Itself" by Canadian psychiatrist, Dr. Norman Doidge. [2007; Penguin Books ISBN: 978-0-14-311310-2]

Norman Doidge's newest book, "The Brain's Way of Healing" [2015, Viking Books USA ISBN: 978-0-67-002550-3] is an excellent follow-up on his earlier work on brain plasticity. In this book, Doidge shows how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. He describes natural, non-invasive avenues into the brain provided by the forms of energy around us - electricity, light, sound, vibration, movement - which pass through our senses and bodies to awaken the brain's own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects.

Neurofeedback is a sophisticated form of biofeedback and an extremely versatile treatment for symptoms and conditions that are the result of brain dysfunction. Neurofeedback methods such as electroencephalographic (EEG) and hemoencephalographic (HEG) biofeedback are used to train the brain to modulate the excitatory and inhibitory patterns of specific neuronal assemblies and pathways as well as cortical blood perfusion and oxygenation to increase flexibility and self-regulation of inhibitory and activating patterns. Neurofeedback helps individuals learn how to self-regulate their cognitive and emotional functioning and is gaining widespread recognition as an effective adjunctive or alternative approach to pharmaceuticals in the treatment of many different psychological disorders and chronic psychoneurological conditions. Neurofeedback is recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics as a treatment for removing ADD/ADHD symptoms as effectively as medications.

Brain stimulation technologies use low amperage electricity, flashing light or syncopated sound to directly and safely stimulate the brain to decrease or increase brain activity as desired to improve functioning and reduce problematic symptoms.
GOTO: Brain Stimulation Therapies
Neurotherapeutic treatment modalities can be effective in treating the following conditions or ameliorating specific symptoms related to these conditions:
- attention deficit disorder (ADD)
- learning disabilities (LD)
- dyslexia, reading disability
- autistic spectrum disorders (ASD)
- fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS)
- anxiety disorders (GAD, OCD, PTSD)
- depression and bipolar disorder (MDD, BPD)
- chronic pain, fibromyalgia
- epilepsy, seizure disorders
- substance abuse/addictions (including alcohol, tobacco & food)
- traumatic brain injury (TBI) associated symptoms
