When I was referred to Oklahoma Neurofeedback Specialists, I was desperate for help with my insomnia and chronic pain. However, after trying many different treatments over the course of 15 years, I was only cautiously optimistic at best. Neurofeedback seemed a bit unusual, but the research showed that many other patients had good results. So I told myself that I had nothing to lose and so much to gain by trying this new treatment method. Neurofeedback has far exceeded my expectations in every way! I’ve gone from sleeping an average of 1-3 hours per night to averaging 6-7 hours each night, and I continue to improve. Dannelle Newnam effectively combined the technology of Neurofeedback with personalized, compassionate and exceptionally practical counseling, coaching to restructure my life for maximum health, and guidance in relaxation techniques and pain management strategies. The treatment approach has given me energy I need for daily life, improved mental clarity, increased emotional resilience, decreased pain levels, and much more. In short, this experience has been a “game changer” for my life”.
I was uncertain before I started neurofeedback. I understood the concept, but nothing had ever really helped my insomnia or my anxiety before – especially not something that didn’t involve any medication. I’m just a little over halfway done with my twenty treatments and I’m amazed at the difference.
I’ve been anxious as long as I can remember. When anxiety has dictated your entire life, to make a decision uninformed by fear is an amazing experience. I’ve also taken several naps in the past few weeks. That may not sound like a big deal, but I was getting less than four or five hours of sleep every day less than six months ago and taking a nap was unheard of. The difference is really incredible. I would definitely recommend just trying it – if you don’t notice a difference, you are having a very different experience than I am. I cannot make it more clear how thankful I am for this opportunity.”
As a working wife and mother, I have struggled to stay on top of things for as long as I can remember. The constant feelings of being overwhelmed and anxious were familiar companions. Things got to a point where I began to feel depressed and did not want to get out of bed in the mornings and face my life. I couldn’t find the motivation to do the most simple tasks. Things felt like they were unravelling and I was starting to lose hope.”
A friend of mine told me about Dannelle and how neurofeedback had worked for her, so I decided to give it a try. I could tell immediately when I met with Dannelle for the first time that she cared about my situation. This wasn’t a typical “throw some medicine at the problem” approach.
When I saw my brain map and Dannelle reviewed it with me, I almost broke down in tears. There was a real reason for me feeling the way I was, and it wasn’t just because I was weak or lazy. There was so much relief in that fact alone.
I could tell a difference almost immediately after we started treatments. The first thing I noticed is I had motivation again! I also started sleeping soundly and waking up feeling like I’d actually slept instead of feeling like a zombie. I also noticed my depression diminished and my anxiety was so much better I stopped having panic attacks and heart palpitations.
Dannelle was with me through the whole process and I could tell she genuinely cared about me. Her encouragement and practical advice got me through. I am now in such a better place that I almost feel like a different person. I’m so thankful I met Dannelle and decided to try neurofeedback. The whole experience has been a total game changer for me and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Liz BryantThe best way to describe my former morning routine— a struggle.
It was a miracle if I woke up before 9:00 a.m. I didn’t feel depressed, but, actions speak louder than words. I had ambition but I didn’t have motivation. On top of the desire to stay in bed until noon, I couldn’t complete a sentence without losing my train of thought or not being able to retrieve a word on the tip of my tongue.
The first time I met Dannelle, I immediately knew I wanted to try neurofeedback. She is inviting, caring, professional and knowledgeable. While I am naturally curious and willing to try new things.
During the winter months, my desire to live life to the fullest tends to fade, I would give up exercising and find excuses to stay home. After two sessions, it came back. I started waking up before 9:00 a.m., going to yoga, eating better, caring more about my overall health and acting on it. A chain reaction that kept gaining momentum.
It’s hard to even write this as my former lack of motivation seems eons ago. Equally as important, my cognitive abilities have been resurrected from the dead, which are very important at a television reporter. I no longer forget words and am no longer frustrated with mind fog.
I truly believe Dannelle and neurofeedback saved me from my slump.
She is also a perfect counselor, guiding me through life’s road blocks and speed bumps. Never before have I received advice that makes perfect sense when told. She actually knows, what you’re facing and draws out a plan to tackle self-worth.
I’ve met a lot of professionals in this field, and Dannelle one is the best.”
Male, 53For more than 20 years, I have suffered from anxiety, mild depression, and balance issues that developed after a series of sport related concussions in my late teens and early 20’s. I have lived with these symptoms for the past 30 years and succumbed to the fact that this would be my everyday life. Over the years, I sought professional help from one doctor or therapist to the next, I even gave hypnotism a try on a few occasions to unlock these gripping side effects of my head injuries. They were all dead ends. I was regularly on and off different medications for depression and anxiety. The side effects from the medications were worse than the battle with depression and anxiety. I gave up. I lost hope of finding a cure or anything which could benefit me and decided that this was my reality and I would just deal with it through self management. But in doing so, I cut myself off from so many things I enjoyed doing, and became an avoider of so many people, opportunities and situations. I was chained up physically and emotionally while facing the day to day grind of my life.
Then, I was introduced to Dannelle. I learned that she was working with people suffering from physical and emotional issues using something I had never heard of called Neurofeedback therapy, it sparked my interest. Since I had nothing to lose, I jumped at the opportunity to give it a try with an open mind.
Now, I can truly say that I have begun to see a light at the end of the tunnel. It has been the most painless experience I’ve been through, and I even find it really enjoyable and relaxing. So far, after each session I walk away feeling better than the day before. My body and my mind have begun to relax again, the chains that were wrapped so tight around me have begun to loosen. I feel at peace again, my heightened sense of awareness of everything around me has been lowered to a much more comfortable and manageable level. My level of doom and gloom has subsided substantially. My outlook for the future has increased substantially. My hope is back and so is my smile. I finally feel like I can exhale. Overall its been life altering in only 6 sessions. Am I where I want to be yet ? No, but my level of anxiety and sadness has tapered off extremely and seems to improve after each visit. I’m excited about my progress and can’t wait to finish my treatment. I am so grateful to Dannelle that she introduced me to the Neurofeedback therapy . I can’t say enough positive things about my first 6 sessions. I believe in the process, but also I trust in Dannelle just as much. She takes the time to explains things in great detail so I can understand what she’s talking about. She is so informative, and willing to offer her thoughts and always willing to listen and answer questions. Her patience and passion for her work is immeasurable. She is thorough and well prepared and her confidence in her ability is easy to see. I highly recommend her “A+” therapy and her personal skills.”
