Dr. Jansons uses state-of-the-art therapies to treat many disorders. These include psychotherapy, neurofeedback and heart wave variability.
Psychotherapy (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)
Clients are counseled through their entire treatment process to cope with past, present and future concerns. Generally, positive life changes and decisions result from the combination of neurofeedback and psychotherapy.
A form of biofeedback, neurofeedback helps to restore normal brain wave activity and connectivity to calm the brain. This is done be training positive brain waves, increasing their frequency and connectivity. Many behavioral and emotional problems are the result of a dysregulation in brain waves. Once the brain waves are trained to produce more normal patterns, mood and behaviors also improve.
Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
An effective form of biofeedback, HRV training helps the individual self-regulate breathing and heart rate. This results in healthier mental, emotional and physiological states. It is a tool that the individual can use frequently in order to maintain calm, despite life’s trials. A combination of psychotherapy, neurofeedback and HRV will help individuals achieve very effective levels of self-regulation, control and balance.
