"Night and day is the perfect contrast to describe my life before and after neurofeedback therapy. Before my treatments began I was depressed, worried, irritable, angry, and experienced severe headaches daily. To manage my many symptoms and constant pain, I flooded my body with several medications, only to create a laundry list of side effects and subsequent issues. After my first neurofeedback treatment I experienced something I hadn’t in a long time…hope! Within four sessions, I drastically decreased my medication intake and eliminated some altogether. Now that my therapy is complete I feel like I have reconnected with the “normal” person I used to be. I am learning to enjoy life again and experience it more clearly than ever before. Thanks Dr. Thomas for saving my life!! "
"I never had allergies before moving to
Portland. Since living here, I have been to 4
physicians, none of whom have been able to
completely address my allergy symptoms or the
root cause of my allergies. Using AK and with
her nutritional expertise, Dr. Thomas is the
only doctor to eliminate the constant sneezing,
throat irritation, itchy, watery eyes and asthma
attacks. Now I can be active outdoors again. She
is the doctor's doctor."

"Within a month of working with Dr. Thomas
a variety of symptoms I was experiencing were
falling by the wayside. Some of those symptoms
were: fatigue, joint aches, low back pain,
unclear thinking, and debilitating depression. I
continue working with Dr. Thomas because my life
has taken a 180 degree turn in relation to my
health and sense of well-being. Dr. Thomas is a
highly gifted healer whose clear communication,
patience, intelligence and compassion have
transformed the way I think of health-care."

"I slipped on some small rocks when I
accidentally stepped off the sidewalk, and I
fell backwards, landing on my coccyx very hard.
It was painful to walk, especially up and down
stairs, and I couldn't even get comfortable when
I was sitting. I got immediate relief from one
session with Dr. Thomas, and after a second
treatment the next day, the pain and stiffness
was gone for good."

"When I started seeing Dr. Thomas I was, in no uncertain terms, a wreck. I suffered from crippling depression, panic attacks, anxiety, ADHD, and insomnia. The doctors I had been seeing kept throwing prescription medications at me, which did not help and created additional side effects that they then “treated” with more medications, including amphetamines, sleeping pills, anti-anxiety medications, and anti-depressants. Right before I fortuitously heard about neurofeedback on a NPR broadcast, I had hit my lowest point and had been contemplating in-patient treatment for my depression, which I did not believe would help but seemed like the only option left. Thankfully, that radio broadcast led me down a very different path. It talked about rewiring your brain, actually changing the way you think and react to stimuli, which is exactly what I needed because my brain was running amuck and I had lost the ability to respond appropriately to the world around me.
Although I initially went to Dr. Thomas for neurofeedback, I got much more. Not only did she evaluate my diet and lifestyle habits, she ran blood tests and provided advice on nutritional supplements that would help me function at my optimal level. Dr. Thomas truly takes a holistic approach to patient care that I had never come across in traditional Western medicine. She listened to me and my body to figure out what the best treatment
plan would be for me as an individual, as opposed to some amorphous average American of my age and gender that my previous healthcare providers had been treating unsuccessfully.
It took time but I fully committed to the treatment. Today, after a few short months of neurofeedback and Dr. Thomas’ excellent care, I am happy to say that I take NO prescription medications, my insomnia is gone, I no longer get panic attacks at all, and my anxiety and depression have all but disappeared and will soon be nothing more than a memory. I can honestly say that neurofeedback and Dr. Thomas saved my life and I strongly and wholeheartedly recommend this treatment to anyone suffering from similar problems who is ready to make a real changes to their underlying issues. There really is another way and this is it."
"Dr Thomas' work is both refreshing and
unique. I have seldom worked with a physician
who so thoroughly works with the mind and the
body, in a way that is truly both mindful and
respectful of each unique human being."
