Adult ADHD

Would you like to be more productive, focused, and confident?

You know you should get something done, but half the time you put it off. You lose focus on the mundane details of a project, so you have to improvise or apologize.

It’s hard to push through distraction, restlessness, and boredom and get things done. You’re not as organized as you could be, so you lose track of details. You procrastinate, let things go until the last minute, then scramble to finish on time.

If any of these things sound like you, you might be struggling with Adult ADHD.

The good news is there a safe, effective treatment.

Adult ADHD can make it harder to focus at work, and harder to relate to the people you care about. When your mind isn’t clear, you end up with…

  • Job stress
  • Relationship stress
  • Parenting stress
  • Anxiety
  • Trouble with sleep

It doesn’t have to be that way. To learn more about scientifically backed, evidence-based approach, call 510.277.0456 or

Optimal Performance for your brain

The symptoms of Adult ADHD – difficulty with focus, attention, memory, and follow-through – are the result of how your brain functions.

The truth is that this functioning can be changed. Over 40 years of research show that with the right feedback, your brain can learn to be more focused, more efficient, more clear.

The feedback comes from Neurofeedback, a kind of biofeedback that helps train mental fitness. Neurofeedback improves attention, working memory, long term memory, motivation, and mood.

Imagine feeling focused and alert, doing your best work

Neurofeedback can help you…

  • Increase your energy and productivity
  • Manage time efficiently, which gives you more time for people you care about
  • Reduce anxiety, so you can relax on the job and at home
  • Sleep easily and restfully, and feel refreshed each morning
  • Reduce your stress, so you feel energized and ready to work
  • Improve your memory, so you can take care of the essential details that make the difference between doing an okay job and a doing a great job

These changes happen naturally, without the use of medication.

In fact, studies show that many people on medication at the beginning of neurofeedback treatment often reduce or stop by the time they are finished (with the support of their physician).

The best part is that benefits are lasting.

  • Several studies have followed people for 2 years, and one for 10 years after neurofeedback is finished. They found that the changes are lasting. And this makes sense

The immediate feedback Neurofeedback provides helps you learn newer, more successful patterns of brain activity. Research shows that as brain activity changes, symptoms disappear. The result is an ability to affect your focus, attention, anxiety, sleep, and mood.

About Pat LaDouceurpatladouceur-art3-sq

Since 1987, I’ve helped hundreds of people worry less, focus more, and feel more connected with the important people in their lives.

The problem of ADHD has always been close to my heart. As a counselor and former teacher, I’ve worked with hundreds of professionals who struggle with inattention and performance.

When I added neurofeedback to my practice, everything else became much more effective. The strategies clients used to relax, set goal and priorities, and get organized were easier and got results more quickly.

I watched clients get organized and find jobs, go back to school, perform better at work, and get promotions. Former procrastinators complete projects and start businesses.

Over 85% of my clients make significant improvements during the time we spend together.

Life is too short to keep on struggling, when you could be doing work you value and building relationships you love.

Will it work for me?

Neurofeedback-ADHD

One study of adult ADHD showed that Neurofeedback helped 83% of the participants made significant improvement in focus, attention, and performance. In addition…

  • Dozens of controlled studies show that neurofeedback consistently helps people learn more easily and perform better.
  • Neurofeedback is based on scientifically established principles (operant conditioning), and meets the highest level of evidence-based reporting.
  • Over 50 peer-reviewed journal articles show evidence of it’s effectiveness. Studies show that neurofeedback is superior or equivalent to medication, and twice as effective as 6 other common treatments for ADHD.  Click here for more research on Neurofeedback and ADHD.

It’s an easy, natural approach based on learning.  Nothing is done to you. Sensors detect your EEG pattern and send it to the computer, then the computer provides feedback. Just as you would learn how to play baseball more efficiently if you were listening to a personal coach on the sidelines, the feedback from the computer “coaches” your brain.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is neurofeedback and how does it work?

Neurofeedback is a kind of biofeedback that detects your brainwaves and gives you feedback about them. Sensors are attached to the surface of your scalp, which act like tiny stethoscopes by amplifying the signals your brain produces. The computer records these signals and gives you feedback almost instantly – in the form of a picture, a gentle tone, or the sound of a brook. This feedback lets you know when you’re producing more of the waves that make you feel focused and alert.

The immediate feedback helps you learn newer, more successful patterns of brain activity. Research shows that as brain activity changes, symptoms disappear. The result is an ability to affect your focus, attention, anxiety, sleep, and mood.

2. Will it help my situation?

While I can’t guarantee it will work for everyone, Neurofeedback has a great track record. A study of adult ADHD showed that 83% of the participants made significant improvement in focus, attention, and performance.

3. How much time is involved?

New patterns are learned in 50-minute sessions that are usually scheduled once or twice a week.  Most people notice some improvement right away, within the first 5 sessions. Nationwide results suggest that for ADHD, most clients continue for 20-40 sessions to get the results they want.

4. Does neurofeedback do something to me?

No, nothing is done to you. The sensors detect your EEG pattern and send that to the computer, then the computer provides feedback. Just as you would learn how to play baseball more efficiently if you were listening to a personal coach on the sidelines, the feedback from the computer “coaches” your brain.
