Leigh Richardson’s personal experiences with brain injury led her to believe in using neurofeedback as an alternative to medication.

After an alarming event occurred when her twin boys were in second grade, Leigh’s world completely shifted. One of her 2-year-old twin boys was hit by a car resulting in a concussion that seemed to heal without effects…until 5th grade. He started experiencing issues concentrating and remembering things. Crying after school one day he anxiously told his mom, “I think I have ADHD!” His teacher suggested Leigh put him on Ritalin, which was NOT something she took as an answer. Being totally opposed to the suggestion, Leigh found a neurologist that used neurofeedback to help her son. Having suffered herself from two brain injuries she tried the same treatment.

If there is a lesson to be learned from the positive results, it’s getting involved with mental health and whole-brain training. In 2009, Leigh founded her successful counseling practice at The Brain Performance Center.

Listen to how Leigh’s dedication to improving all aspects of brain health has led her to be recognized as a leader in the pursuit of mental health.

Do you have any history of Alzheimer's in your family? Even if the answer is no it is really important to try lowering your risks.

Leigh Richardson of The Brain Performance Center has several tips to help Monday morning on FOX News Radio. You can find some interviews on Monday on The Brain Performance Center's page!
I first heard about the Brain Performance Center from a friend of mine that worked with the office about 3 years ago. She mentioned that Dr. Leigh, Sally and Bismark had a huge impact on her sons life changing him from a 13 year old boy that was angry, us engaged and gave one word answers to a boy that was affectionate, very engaged and was interested in talking with people after three months or so of treatment sessions twice a week. She felt that they were very focused on her sons well being.

I am currently in a similar situation with my 13 year old son and she introduced me to neurofeedback which I had never heard of before. The next day I went online and found a practitioner in New England that did neurofeedback. He had a slightly different approach than what had been used with my friends son so I had some questions about both neurofeedback and some of the differences. My friend immediately reached out to Sally to let the office know I'd be calling. I called the next day and spoke to Bismark and found out that Dr. Leigh was out of the country on vacation that week. I explained to him my sons situation and the fact that I had started sessions in New England but I had some questions. I was blown away when he offered and contacted Dr. Leigh and she agreed to speak to me that afternoon! Dr. Leigh spent 30 minutes on the phone with me and shared some insights on neurofeedback and some key questions to ask. She also asked me to follow up with her when she returned from her vacation- which I did. She even took a look at a report my practitioner put together detailing his initial evaluation on my son. Wanted to pass along that I was impressed with her passion around what she does and her willingness to take time with me. I told her that there is a small chance that my family may be relocating to the Dallas area in a few months and if we do- we'll definitely be working with her.

We have just moved to a new location! Our address is 8215 Westchester Dr. Suite 243, Dallas, TX 75225.

Yes! You can change the way your brain responds to stress.🧠

Chronic stress causes us to be more reactionary, in a state of “fight or flight.” When you refrain your brain, you have the ability to go from a reactionary state to a responsive state.
