Ready To Feel Healthy Again?

Don't you wish you could get back to your old, energetic YOU?

The problem is, you’ve tried the traditional approaches and it’s not working. You’re frustrated that you can’t seem to get to the root of your brain & cognitive issues. If you struggle with any of these…

  • Stress & Anxiety
  • Constantly Feeling Exhausted & Tired
  • Poor Sleep & Insomnia
  • Trouble Concentrating & Brain Fog
  • Concussions & Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
  • Mood Swings & Irritability

... then relief is in sight!

My mission is to help you bring your brain back into balance, naturally... rather than a wait-and-see approach (or masking symptoms with expensive or toxic prescriptions).


Here's What Our Clients Are Saying

The Balanced Brain team is the best!

"I was thinking to myself “What the heck is neurofeedback??” That is until I ran out of options and took the leap to try it for my panic attacks and anxiety. As I moved through the process it was hard to understand what it was doing but there was a growing calmness instead of anxiety every day. I was living in a constant state of fight or flight and neurofeedback helped me get a very strong baseline of calmness every day. I’m literally amazed at how it works and has stayed. Therapy, medications, but nothing has worked like neurofeedback. I highly recommend John and the team at The Balanced Brain and neurofeedback. They changed my life!"


Give him 10 stars, John deserves “em.”

"ADHD does not need to be medicated – you can train the brain to focus on what matters and disregard the rest. My 7-year-old went from distracted and disruptive to a focused and intent learner with normal classroom behavior. Teachers, friends, and family have noticed the changes in my awesome little man and I’m so happy I gave neurofeedback a shot before buying into drug therapy. No side effects, no life-long prescriptions, his brain is actually becoming stronger every session."


“I am happy, energetic, positive and myself AGAIN”

"Before I met with John, my life was a wreck. Since our first e-mail exchange, he has shown nothing but compassion for my military service and conditions. I couldn’t focus, sleep, remain happy or at peace before I started doing NFB. 11 sessions in and I want to cry thinking of the progress I have made! I am happy, energetic, positive and myself AGAIN. I can’t believe I was missing out on this for years. John saved my life in so many ways. He is also very flexible and works with your schedule. NFB works! I will never take medication again. Thank you for this life-changing experience!!!"


“The Balanced Brain changed our lives!”

"The entire team is remarkable, professional, and has a wealth of knowledge to share. I can’t say enough good things about the individualized care they give my son. John has gone above and beyond to ensure my son gets the specific treatments he needs in an environment that are safe, comfortable, and above all, caring. Without going into details about why my son started his sessions here, I will tell you that within a short amount of time we saw real, lasting changes. He no longer experiences crippling emotional states. He’s focused, in control. It has improved our family dynamic and our lives in ways I cannot begin to express – except to say that starting our sessions with John has been the BEST decision I have ever made as a parent.On top of all that, during this crazy time of COVID, they provide a clean and safe environment to continue treatment. I’d give them 10 stars if I could."

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a free discovery call?

Do you feel like you've literally tried "everything" when it comes to your brain health issues? It's unfortunate that 97% of Americans don't know that there's real solutions to address their chronic brain issues without toxic or expensive drugs. And that's why I am offering a free discovery call where you can discover how our functional medicine approach to brain & mental health can help… and whether it's the right approach for you. You can't make new decisions without new information… and I'd love to fill in the blanks for you during that free chat.

Why is this discovery call free?

You may be wondering why this call is free and whether I am trying to sell you something…. since other health practitioners don't offer free consultations, right? In my practice, we focus on the root cause solution so that we can actually heal you and transform your brain health. So yes! I am trying to sell you on the fact that you deserve vibrant health, that it's possible for you to finally heal (even if you've literally tried everything). However, I don't want to waste your time or your money – if you don't see this as a worthy investment, then this is likely not for you. And that's why we don't start with a paid appointment – we want to first make sure that we can help you – you can't make a decision without having all the information, right?

Will this work for me?

"I've been to so many doctors and neurologists… yet nobody seems to have an answer. How do I know this will work for me?" The basic question is… can I help everyone? And the answer is NO.

  • If you're looking for a quick fix, a magic pill… then this isn't for you.
  • If you're not open to new ideas, or willing to actively participate in your care… then this isn't for you either.

But I can help most people.

  • If you're looking for a natural approach to finally resolve your chronic brain issues, anxiety, insomnia for good...
  • If you're ready to address the root cause that's been keeping you stuck… ...then you're in the right place.

That's the reason why I am offering this free discovery call so that we can chat about what you've already tried, what worked and what didn't work – so we can quickly see whether we can even help you.

How do I get started?

It's very simple. Click on button bellow and enter your information to apply for a free call with our team.

Do you accept insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid?

As it turns out, we do not accept insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, but we will provide a Superbill that you can submit to your insurance. Also, certain items are HSA/FSA eligible expenses.

Is neurofeedback expensive?

I can't spend that kind of money, I am on fixed income and have only limited resources." Believe me, I hear that a lot… and here's what I told Janine, a 48-year old single mother: "Let's assume you could get back to vibrant mental health within a year… waking up refreshed, without brain fog and poor memory… steady focus throughout the day…. clear and sharp mind…. ready to tackle anything the day may bring… what would that be worth to you? So what people are really asking is, "Is It affordable?" - and the answer is absolutely! We have payment plans, financing options and payment flexibility – and we have lots of clients on fixed income!

Do I have to be local to participate?

Yes, since neurofeedback is a learning experience, sessions are done in our office, with a minimum of twice a week. We have a lot of flexibility for times of day, to best accommodate your schedule.

  • Can you afford NOT to take this course?

  • Yes! If you watch the videos and complete the worksheets, you can get 100% of your money back, guaranteed, anytime within the first 30 days of starting the course.
  • No problem. It will be waiting in your inbox when you're ready. You can follow along at your own pace. No need to panic if you miss a week or even two. You'll have access to the course for 12 months, so you can catch up at any time.
  • Yes. Amy will be available to answer questions via the comments box within each module, as well as in the Facebook group. She will also take questions in a group Q+A session every other week throughout the course. She will not be available to help individuals in a one-on-one basis.
