Do you feel sad, unmotivated, or empty? Is it hard to get out of bed in the morning or do the things that you used to love? Is feeling depressed affecting your daily life?

We are here to help.

Come in for an informational meeting and we can create a plan that works for you. Call (707) 338-9084 to schedule a consult.

Here are a few of the options that we offer in office which can specifically help with the symptoms associated with Depression.

Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback can help rewire and strengthen the brain. Each client receives specialized treatment, meaning that we make an individualized program based on the needs of each person. The specific type of neurofeedback that may best fit your needs will be determined during your first office visit. Please read a more in-depth description about neurofeedback here.

Alph Stim® AID
The Alpha-Stim® AID is a small device that uses Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) to alleviate symptoms of depression and help you feel better quickly. The technology is based on an exclusive patented waveform that’s the most researched and proven of its kind. The waveform passes between two electrodes that you clip on to your earlobes, sending a signal to your brain that helps to reduce depression.

Photobiomodulation
Photobiomodulation, also known as low level laser therapy (LLLT), is the application of light and near infrared radiation to stimulate healing without sensation or negative side effects. Neurons are cells that contain mitochondria. By utilizing the science of photobiomodulation to energize neuronal mitochondria, this triggers a cascade of beneficial cellular events. Some potential effects are: neuroprotective effects, self-repair mechanisms and enhanced function.

tDCS
Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a form of neurostimulation that has been investigated intensively, especially for its application for depression.
