Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Neurofeedback and Biofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of Biofeedback.  It is also called "EEG Biofeedback" and involves physiological monitoring and operant conditioning of brain electrical activity. Other kinds of biofeedback include muscle biofeedback, breath biofeedback, temperature biofeedback, and more. We do offer these other kinds of biofeedback, and can integrate them into the sessions as needed.


How long are your sessions and how often should I train?

The length of each session may vary depending on the needs of the client. Our typical training session lasts approximately 40-50 minutes.  Clients achieve best results with consistent training at a frequency of 1-3 times per week.


How many sessions will it take and when will I notice improvement?

Many people begin to notice some progress around 8-12 sessions. Overall, training typically lasts about 20-60 sessions, depending on the level of complexity of a person's issues and goals.  Some people may require more than 60 sessions.  The results are usually long-lasting and sustainable.


Are Neurofeedback and Biofeedback safe, and are there any side effects?

Neurofeedback and Biofeedback are safe evidence-based therapy tools that have been used for decades, and they pose little or no side effects. Neurofeedback training may occasionally cause very mild side effects, such as slight fatigue. These side effects, if you notice them, are temporary and pass quickly. This can be similar to how you feel after putting in a tough workout at the gym.


What is Q-EEG Brain Mapping?

Q-EEG (brain mapping) is an assessment tool that can help a Neurofeedback therapist understand how a person's brain functions. Things like processing speed, and brain network connectivity can be measured and compared with expected function, which gives a therapist insight into the complex systems at play that might correlate with a client's goals.  A Q-EEG is an excellent guide when it comes to customizing neurofeedback trainings to help meet specific goals.


How much does this cost?

The cost for neurofeedback, biofeedback, and counseling varies depending on the number of sessions. These services have been compared cost-wise to investing in orthodontics (braces/ Invisalign).  


Will my insurance reimburse me?

Our services are generally not covered by insurance companies however HSA/FSA funds can be utilized with a plan debit or credit card. As we are not contracted with any insurance plans, we require payment up front for our services, and we are happy to provide you with receipts/superbills that can be submitted to your insurance company for possible out-of-network coverage if you wish. We encourage anyone interested in insurance reimbursement to contact your provider to determine what services they will reimburse you for prior to your first appointment.  The procedure code for Biofeedback and Neurofeedback (a.k.a. "EEG Biofeedback") is 90901. We are unable at this time to contact insurance companies for potential or current clients.


Do you offer counseling and psychotherapy?

Yes.  While we specialize in Neurofeedback and Biofeedback, we are licensed in the state of Texas to provide counseling and psychotherapy services. We can integrate counseling into our training sessions if we feel that this would be beneficial to your progress. 


What if I can only make it to the office once per week but would like to train more frequently?

No worries! We do have a licensed, board-certified neurofeedback provider who can help you add home training to your personalized program.  Some clients choose to train 1-2 sessions per week in the office, and 2-3 additional times per week with a home-training system.  Home systems are easy to use and sessions are closely monitored and adjusted as needed.
