Client Success Stories
Welcome to Neurofeedback Services Of New York. We understand the importance of feeling and performing your best. We also understand the distress that psychological struggles can bring about in your life. At Neurofeedback Services of New York we believe every individual possesses a powerful capability to grow.
Our clinic is a full service neurofeedback therapy center where we provide state of the art brain-based assessments and training therapies for all ages. Located on the Upper West side of Manhattan our practice offers one of the most comprehensive arrays of neurofeedback services in the metropolitan area.
As the field of modern neuroscience continues to advance, we discover more and more about the natural flexibility and learning capacities of the brain. Once thought to be a fixed organ, the brain is actually able to consistently learn, adapt, and change in ways we never thought possible! With the use of cutting-edge neuro-technologies, including ISF Neurofeedback Training and QEEG brain mapping, we are able to help clients train their minds to operate in ways that better serve them. By focusing on the client’s needs, we are able to strengthen areas of dysregulation, break habitual thought and emotional patterns, and bring a sense of equilibrium to a person’s life.
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, brain-based biofeedback intervention that trains the brain to function in healthier, more efficient ways. With the assistance of a trained clinician, neurofeedback therapy allows an individual to engage the brain’s innate capability to self-regulate and optimize itself. Over time, dysregulation is corrected leading to improved cognitive function, greater emotional stability, and increased quality of sleep.
Neurofeedback and brain map training provide relief for a range of conditions such as Anxiety, Trauma, ADHD, Autism, Migraines, sleep disorders, Depression, OCD, and Addiction. In addition to the above, our specialties also include diverse issues such as Autism, Traumatic Brain Injury, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and Dementia. In addition to symptom-based concerns, neurofeedback has long been used as a tool for peak performance training.
At Neurofeedback Services Of New York we conduct in-depth neuro-assessments of all our clients. We perform comprehensive QEEG brain maps that allow us to peer inside the brain and analyze the different frequency patterns within each region. The QEEG colorfully illuminates areas of the brain that may be over or under activated, possibly contributing to various symptoms within the mind and body.
I love this practice, it has been extremely helpful in many ways. I have been going through so many challenges in my life and i have been in and out of different therapy. With everything i have been through in my life i believe that Mark Smith and Neurofeedback have been the only things that have truly worked. Mark is a very funny, lovable enthusiastic person with an outstanding personality. Anyone would be lucky to work with him and his practice.
I have known Mark Smith as a clinician and instructor for fifteen years. He is open, candid, and professionally dynamic. An intensely knowledgeable practitioner, he has managed to develop a unique form of treatment and neurofeedback training that has been shown to achieve splendid results. He is intellectually honest and persistently refines his knowledge and techniques. His willingness to work with clients with complicated and chronic problems that other professionals have been unable to help is a testament to his dedication, determination, and compassion.
Neurofeedback has been a life-changing journey for me. I’ve had sleep problems since I was a kid, and for the first time in two decades, they finally feel manageable. Additionally, it’s reduced my overall anxiety to a staggering degree, and I’ve felt my overall alertness and creativity go up. Grateful for Mark, Noel, and Leila’s support.
I have only been performing ISF training for a few months, but I can say it is my personal and clinical opinion that this is probably the most powerful intervention ever known. With ISF, I have been working with people who thought they were beyond hope. They are getting significantly better, and finally getting back into the life they deserve. Mark Smith used the word “glücklich” in the ISF workshop, meaning that feeling of total euphoria, peace and happiness that sometimes comes upon someone during the training. I have not had this happen during my own ISF training, however I have lived this feeling in a very clinical way for the last few months because I am helping people in ways that I never dreamt possible. Each day I witness miracles. I have seen people that have been so depressed that they were frequently admitted to the hospital for suicidality. Now they're happy and going back to work or school. Clients with balance problems and mobility issues are walking again. A couple of my clients had asthma that interfered with their lives and sports performance, and now the asthma is gone. Other clients have had horrible gastric intestinal issues to the point where their lives revolved around accessing the bathroom or taking medications just to have normal bodily functions. These people have minimal gastric intestinal issues now. Two of my young clients have had horrific development trauma and are now playing and dancing like other children do. I spent thirteen years working in an inpatient psychiatric unit and saw some of the most dysregulated brains imaginable. Now I have some of these people in my private practice and they are getting better. I would not believe any of this unless I would have seen it on first-hand basis. It just doesn’t seem possible. On a personal note, my daughter had three concussions a few years ago. She spent a couple of years in bed and thought her life was beyond hope, then we discovered neurofeedback. She has had many sessions of surface neurofeedback training (both one channel and four channel Z score) and got her life back, but her gastric intestinal issues, temperature regulation, asthma, and sleep issues still lingered. Since she has been optimized through ISF, she is sleeping well, does not have asthma, and is eating foods that she was never able to eat before. Her GI functioning is fairly normal. I don't know that I can actually find the right words to express my feelings about ISF. Each day I experience “glücklich” because I witness miracles happening in the lives of others. I am very blessed to be providing this amazing treatment. Thank you Mark and all the others who have made ISF possible. We are changing the world, one client at a time.

In my opinion, Mark Smith and his staff should be the first call for treatment of ADD, ADHD, ODD, depression, anxiety, trauma and migraines. He is kind and patient, not to mention very well trained and overall a great clinician. I have used Mark as a resource several times in my own practice. If you are in or near the city and have any interest or questions regarding neurofeedback, I would highly recommend reaching out to Mark before you go anywhere else.
