“Gray Matters grew from an overlapping interest in two different areas:
My interest in neurofeedback began with my frustration with the prevailing treatment of children with ADHD. Children were frequently medicated too quickly, and often on a trial and error basis – an extension of the diagnostic process, rather than its product. Medication was being used as a “band aid”, while the underlying issues remained unchanged, all while children were dealing with significant side-effects. In short, medicine was not keeping-up with neuroscience – an issue I’m determined to address.
My interest in psychotherapy has been a lifelong passion. More recently, it was strongly influenced by the experience of my own divorce. I believe that too few therapists are willing to take a position, but that sometimes that’s precisely what’s needed.”
