Family Counseling San Diego EMDR LENS Neurofeedback
Welcome to our professional group of doctors and therapists were our seasoned clinicians integrate safe, effective, research based treatment that focuses on solutions in addition to utilizing cutting edge technology such as the Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) is a unique type of neurofeedback that nudges the brain out of maladaptive brainwave patterns it is stuck in, allowing it to restore homeostasis, to reset itself for optimal performance. Mr. Martin and Ms. Phillips couple LENS with EMDR. We use rapid trauma resolution therapies so we can reduce symptoms much quicker were clients under 6 months are improved so dramatically we can begin decreasing amount of sessions, often under 6 weeks. Utilize the LENS and begin the steps to immediately improve your quality of life with over 20 years of research showing how this cutting edge treatment approaches has changed life with results that are enduring restoring optimal brain functioning in as little as 6 sessions.
LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System) is a newer form of neurofeedback that we offer at our clinic. This non-invasive and quick treatment option has been used for 20-plus years. It has been shown to diminish problems associated with dysregulation of the central nervous system such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, mood dysregulation, brain injury, attentional issues, and learning and memory problems.
- Recent, acute or less complicated symptoms may resolve in less than 20 sessions.
- If you are more sensitive or have a history of complicated or chronic problems, you may need more than 20 sessions. It has been our experience that people with complex developmental trauma may need a few years of LENS treatment in combination with other modalities in order to fully benefit.
- We keep explanation simple and request you to complete online LENS Questionnaire prior to treatment to expedite your time in the office.
- We utilize what your insurance provides and you only pay for the LENS equipment administration time. Look at FEES at menu above.
People whom are familiar with EEG Neurofeedback as entrainment (playing games and moving things on screen with mind). LENS is dys-entrainment, faster, broad ranging, non-intrusive as its non-pharmaceutical, customized by your own brain. This is what we help to do. At FamilyCounselingSanDiego, we integrate this newcutting edge treatment approaches technology to expedite treatment success. We also utilize positive psychology, solution focused, dialectical, mindfulness counseling, brain nutrition, and multiple types of which will be discussed with you during your intake session at which time we create your treatment plan to find a route to symptom relief as quickly as possible. LENS is at the forefront of new brain technologies. It is unique in terms of how it works, the wide range of its benefits, and the speed and effectiveness with which it works. LENS is particularly effective for anxiety, depression, ADD and traumatic brain injury.

- There are problems with some insurances from some university/company employees such as UCSD and Healthnet. They have a special contract to provide mental health services through Optum Behavioral Health not MHN (Managed Health Network) which is owned by Healthnet and typically were patients go through to get services. So please do call the number on the back of your insurance card to find out what Mental Health Provider is your company is currently contracted with.

We are on most plans and if not we can get on your plan quickly. We are devoted to helping you achieve your goals and feel better quickly.
field, like the ones that surround digital watches and wires in the wall, to carry feedback to the person receiving it. The feedback travels down the same wires carrying the brain waves to the amplifier and computer. Although the feedback signal is weak, it produces a measurable change in the brainwaves without conscious effort from the individual receiving the feedback. The LENS software allows the EEG signals that are recorded at the scalp to control the feedback.
The almost undetectable feedback power uses a frequency that is different from, but correlates with, the dominant brainwave frequency. When exposed to this feedback frequency, the EEG amplitude distribution changes in power. Most of the time the brain waves reduce in power; but at times they also increase in power. In either case the result is a changed brainwave state, and much greater ability for the brain to regulate itself.
When stress or other outside factors, or biologically based mechanisms, disturb the nervous equilibrium, this type of relaxation modality can catalyze the brains own ability to rebalance, which to the stressed individual, can be experienced as a reversal effect and affect typically problematic high powered slow waves.
When used toward this end (it’s not a medical device; it’s an educational tool for somatic re-education and relaxation) the central nervous system learns to re-tone it’s own reactions to stimulation. The size of one’s neurological reaction reduce, which helps the person to be more discerning and function at a higher level.
Our personal experience with the LENS started with recovery of trauma and also facilitated a reduction in pain. Because each person is different there is no way of knowing the exact effect the LENS will have on an individual. But our goal is a more relaxed, less stressed, better functioning and focused individual.
