We sought Dr. Tate’s services for my 7-year-old son because his behavior had been a major problem in school since kindergarten. Previously diagnosed with autism and ADHD, but I suspect he had undiagnosed Oppositional Defiance Disorder as well. We were getting calls from the principal on an almost daily basis with reports of extreme temper tantrums, aggressive and violent behavior, and refusal to do anything asked of him. Then came the summer where he got kicked out of 3 different summer camps. Referred to neurofeedback therapy by Colorado Psychiatry Center, we started him with neurofeedback therapy sessions 3 times a week, with the expectation of 50-50 sessions, and the difference was drastic after just one week. All of the teachers comment on how well behaved and happy he is now. We no longer get calls from the school administrators constantly. My some has made so many friends now and even started to like music (he hated it before). I was truly at my wit’s end, feeling like I had nothing left to offer my son that could help him, but Dr. Tate and her amazing team helped my son do a 180-degree turn for the better. I now recommend this therapy to everyone I can.
Our son, 9, was having a difficult time controlling his temper since he was 4. When something made him frustrated there was a tipping point where he would just rage. It didn’t seem like anything we did was able to control it, other than waiting for it to pass. We read books, took him to therapy for over a year with no progress. We then took him to get his brain mapped and there was a scientific explanation, a part of his brain that controlled emotion was under developed.
After 10 neurofeedback treatment sessions our life was altered. All the ‘just try this’ steps from the books were now working! We could tell he had more control, and his behavior was a choice now. Which is why we could now work on repairing the pattern of behavior he was used to. It has been an amazing experience for our family, and truly life altering for our son. He has a new level of confidence with his ever growing self-control. We cannot recommend this enough- Dr. Tate’s knowledge in this field is outstanding!
My son has been struggling with depression since age 10. He is now 20 years old. In the past 10 years, he has also exhibited rebellion and anger issues. After the very first Neurofeedback treatment with TRS, he was more cooperative and less argumentative. After 5 sessions, he was much less depressed and was cooperative in helping with family tasks.
Recently, he was driving and lost the clutch on his car. In the past when something went wrong with his car, he would go into a rage, act completely unreasonable, and blame everyone around him for the problem. I was shocked when his response this time was calm and logical. He did not lash out in anger toward anyone. He called me and said, “Mom, have you ever had one of those days when things just don’t go well?” I wondered who this person was and what he had done with my son. Unlike times past, he took the car breakdown in stride, and helping him get his car fixed was much less stressful and easier on everyone in the family.
