Joseph N. O’Donnell, MA, MBA, PhD: Board-Certified Neurotherapist
A lifetime devoted to helping others.
“Having been brought up to care about others, it was a natural fit. It is challenging and exciting to create the conditions for improvement and see it happen. In neurofeedback treatment, the compelling motive for continuing what I do is: It works. I most enjoy seeing individuals who had little hope for improvement actually improve.
“I tend to take a relaxed, easygoing style, particularly with children. Too professional of a veneer tends to frighten kids, so I want to engage them in a friendly way. Aware of their difficulties, my staff and I approach our clients’ issues always with a smile and hope. I am genuinely concerned about my clients and convey strong empathy toward their problems.”
