About Sierra EEG

My name is Rachelle Bloksberg and I run Sierra EEG, Neurofeedback Therapy.

My interest in working as a neurofeedback therapist arises from my personal experience with neurofeedback following a mild traumatic brain injury at work.  In brief, neurofeedback therapy really saved my life.  After suffering a closed head brain injury at work, I was completely unable to function.  I sat on the couch — for pretty much a couple of years!  I wasn’t able to do anything.

Neurofeedback therapy changed all of that.  It made my constantly pounding, blinding migraine headaches much less.  (No, the headaches didn’t go away completely.)  It made me be able to think like a normal adult.  It helped my balance.  And on and on.

Since neurofeedback therapy was largely unavailable here in Nevada County, California, I decided that I would provide this incredible therapy.

I received my training at the EEG Institute from Sue Othmer and continue to receive ongoing support from the EEG Institute.  To expand my expertise, I regularly attend conferences and seminars. These conferences and seminars keep me up to date with the newest developments in the rapidly growing field of Neurofeedback.

About My Practice
In my neurofeedback therapy practice, I focus on personalized treatment.  I work with adults and children to improve many different patterns and symptoms.  You have your own goals and we will work together to create a personal plan for your brain training.

My main focus is on brain injury, anxiety, depression, sleep problems, attention deficit disorders, learning disabilities, addiction and chronic pain.  I also work with other disorders that have neurological components.

Doctors and other health professionals refer their patients to neurofeedback therapy to address a particular disorder.   I also use neurofeedback therapy to help people achieve peak performance.   These clients have not been diagnosed with any particular disorder.  They are looking for improvement in their quality of life and to increase their mental and physical sense of well-being.  Some of the goals these clients have are to increase their focus, enhance their memory, keep their mind sharp, reduce stress, improve mental clarity or improve their performance at school, in their job, music, art or sports.

Here are some examples of conditions that respond well to Neurofeedback therapy:

* Neurological problems such as Brain Injury, Stroke and Seizure Disorder.

* Attention problems, such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder   (ADHD), staying on task, listening, following directions and focus problems.

* Pain, such as Migraines and Muscle Pain.

* Sleep Disorders, such as Bed Wetting, Sleep Walking, Sleep Talking, Teeth Grinding,  Nightmares, Night Terrors

* Mood disorders, such as Bipolar Disorder and Depression.

* Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

* Immune System Disorders such as Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

* Addiction to Food, Cigarettes, Alcohol or Drugs.
