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!
