"I had often heard of the emotional rollercoaster caused by pregnancy and was committed to avoiding it, if at all possible. This family transition brings enough challenges, alongside the joy, without the unsteady feeling caused by rapidly changing hormones. I chose to work with Rachel and her team during my pregnancy (and postpartum) for this reason and was amazed by the results. Not only did neurofeedback reinstate my sense of internal balance, the practice also improved the quality of my sleep while increasing my depleted energy supplies. I would not have wanted to move through this season any other way and am so deeply thankful for the team’s insight, expertise, and commitment to my well-being. I am a healthier new mama because of their dedication."
"Neurotherapy has given my life back. I was so depressed and lethargic, I had to force myself to get out of bed in the morning. Now, I am up each day with a smile on my face, raising my daughter like I always wanted to!"

"It changed my life! I found freedom from prescription medication, insomnia, anxiety, fear, bipolar mood swings, and anger. It opened my brain and allowed me to connect with a higher power. My entire life has improved so drastically. I no longer feel like I am disconnected. I have control over my emotions. Even my balance and coordination improved!"
-25-year old female, bipolar disorder
"I was on so many medications. I have no friends and always got into trouble at school. After neurotherapy I feel calm and happy. Life is better, I have friends, I am doing good in school. I get along with my parents and siblings better than ever before. I am off almost all of my medication."

"Neuroptimize is cutting edge! They are using the latest technology to regulate our brainwaves without medication or other stimulants. I wish I knew about this earlier in my career! I highly recommend their services and coaching”
-Former NBA Player and World Champion
"Rachel introduced me to an amazing therapy called neurofeedback. In just a few sessions, I already feel better and can’t wait to get on the field and play better than I ever have. Everyone in the NFL, and all people who perform, should be doing this work to be your best!"

"Due to Lyme disease, I have struggled with extensive physiological and neurological symptoms for many years. I was desperate, and eventually stumbled upon Neuroptimize for help. Rachael and Carli have been very supportive in making my neurofeedback treatment both feasible and successful. As my primary therapist, Carli has gone above and beyond to provide a more holistic approach and has utilized books, oils, and other tools which have made my experience more fruitful. Carli has been instrumental in guiding me towards holistic health and has given me real hope for the first time in many years. After 10 sessions with Carli, I started to notice a difference. After 20, I felt a significant transformation. After a total of 42 sessions, I am thrilled to say that I am about 95% symptom free and am able to live a normal life. I am confident of complete healing and restoration. Both Rachael and Carli are professional, gifted therapists, who care and offer state of the art neurofeedback therapy. From my experience, I would highly recommend Neuroptimize for neurofeedback training."
"Before I met Rachel at Neuroptimize I had pretty much lost all hope. For as long as I could remember anxiety was all I knew. My anxiety and depression was getting worse as time passed and I had tried EVERYTHING. Many if not most days, I couldn’t even get out of bed. I tried cognitive therapy, numerous medications, homeopathic medicine and vitamins (which the therapy in conjunction with neurofeedback does wonder!) and nothing was getting me out of the deep hole I was at the time in. I could not see the end of the tunnel. I did not want to be alive anymore. Finding out about neurofeedback was by chance, word of mouth. My boyfriend worked with one of Rachel’s good friend’s and told me she too had experienced anxiety so bad. I called Rachel, and scheduled a consult. Little did I know my life was about to change in a major way. I started coming 3 times a week for sessions where by brain was learning new patterns on how to cope with anxiety and depression . I remember after the first session being at a traffic light and a car honking. The honking of the car didn’t faze me one way or another. It was AMAZING. That was in September of 2014. Fast forward to almost 4 years later and most people close to me would say I am a totally different person. Yes, I still get anxiety from time to time. The difference is I can control it and have power. I now have a will to live and also live a stable lifestyle. I finally saw the light at the end of the dark dark tunnel. Rachel Ragsdale saved my life and for that I am forever grateful!"
"Moments change our lives. I experienced one of those moments on a much-needed vacation with my husband. We were in Mexico enjoying the sun and sand when all the fun came to a halt during a serious injury car accident.
After extensive medical tests I was told that I had “a really hard knock to the head” and told to go home and rest.
I was sleeping 16-hours per day. Grabbing walls to walk. Dealing with debilitating headaches. Was unable to hold a conversation or remember names. Loved my 2-year old daughter but didn’t have the patience to be around her. It was a very dark time. And I was afraid.
Would I ever recover?
That’s when I was introduced to neurofeedback with Rachel Radgsdale and began my sessions. I remember the first time coming to the office. I cried. I was so scared I would never regain my brain function.
The healing was a process. While doing neurofeedback I was also taking specific nutrients to help my brain heal. I would come to a session with a splitting headache and leave headache free. Then I started to notice being awake during the day was not such an exhausting process. I started to hold short conversations. My balance got better. My patience improved. I could play with my daughter and enjoy her presence. Over the course of 6 months I felt like myself again. Sarah was back. But I noticed something new. I had a new ability to tap into creativity in a way I had never experienced before. And this has lead me to some exciting paths in my professional career.
I am forever grateful for the care I received here. Not only is my brain healed but it is operating better than before the accident.
There is hope for all of us."
“Our son struggled extensively with concentration problems, trouble in school from mood swings/temper tantrums/inability to calm down, and sleep struggles. After many evaluations and help with speech in school we decided more needed to be done to ensure his success. I myself had had a successful Biofeedback treatment program for Postpartum depression so I researched if the same program was available for kids. This led us to Neurocore.
Since he has been receiving treatments, his grades and ability to calm down at school have changed for the better. He sleeps through the night with no more waking up from nightmares/night terrors and bedwetting. He seems genuinely refreshed when he wakes up now and alot happier! Still struggling with attention but not nearly to the severity he was before.”
“I was having panic attacks and depressive episodes that were causing me to miss work and putting my job at jeopardy. I also have trichotillomania and I was hoping that the neurofeedback might help with some of that compulsive behavior.
I can find peace easier, on command, and simply breathing helps relieve most of my symptoms. I am also more aware of the physiological reasons behind these seeming crazy moods, this relieves some of the guilt and shame associated with panicking and feeling down. There was never a time that I was made to feel unwelcome. The staff give clear explanations and treat everyone here with respect and compassion. Also the neurofeedback is simply a cool concept and I enjoyed being in the program!”
