I am passionate about how the brain works and discovering ways to help people become more successful in their lives, I enjoy working with individuals through the use of psychotherapy, neurofeedback, and neuropsychological testing. I thrive in the neuropsychological evaluation process and in helping people with their strengths and struggles.

Since the beginning of my career, I have been drawn to helping those who’ve experienced trauma. My dedication to neurofeedback came from working with active duty military and seeing the need for alternative ways to address the symptoms they experience from having a “deployed brain.”

My personal experience with my stepdaughter who struggles with autism and developmental disabilities has further fueled my desire to help families find the support they need. In neurofeedback, I’ve discovered a tool that helps people move beyond their perceived limitations and feel more hopeful about their future.

I was fortunate to have neurofeedback as part of my doctoral program and began performing neurofeedback with a Cygnet amplifier. In 2012 I purchased a Deymed amplifier and began learning about QEEG. As I continued on with my career, I began doing LORETA neurofeedback in 2015.

I began learning from Nick and Tiff in the fall of 2017. I have not looked back since. I highly value the morphology of QEEG, which I was never taught when I began artifacting QEEG’s. The thing is before I began learning, I wondered why my z-score maps didn’t match what I saw in the data. Now I know to look at other portions of the maps along with the raw data and BINGO, I have a much better understanding of what is going on. I began to record ERP’s last year and record ERP’s on every single patient I work with.

 

Megan Simpson, LCMHC, BCN

Clinical Specialities: Children and Adolescents with trauma, autism

Before founding Pathfinder Neurocounseling, Megan worked as a play therapist and consultant with children and adults on the autism spectrum. Her work took her around the U.S., Canada and England to educate families on the benefits of play therapy. During her travels, she noticed a handful of families and children who showed drastic improvements — families who were using neurofeedback. Thus, Megan’s passion for neuroscience and neurofeedback was born. 

In 2012, Megan began using neurofeedback therapy in her work with adolescents struggling with symptoms of trauma. She saw firsthand the dramatic improvements that can occur when combining other therapies with the regulation of the brain through neurocounseling. She has been helping others through neurofeedback ever since. Megan is a licensed mental health counselor and is board certified and an approved BCIA mentor in neurofeedback. She holds a Master’s of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Western Carolina University. In 2018, Megan became a published author of a refereed journal article, Working with Developmental trauma: Results of neurofeedback training with adolescent females and counseling implications.

She has extensive experience facilitating national and international conferences and enjoys the collaboration with participants and practitioners from many fields.  She believes these types of partnerships and encounters will propel the neurofeedback and biofeedback community forward.

Neurotherapy Modalities: I provide neurofeedback using Brainmaster Technologies as well as EEGer systems.  I incorporate Heart Rate Variability (HRV) training into my sessions as well. I also use the QEEG assessment as a first order of conceptualizing and client among other neurocognitive assessments and client reporting to guide my protocols.  My QEEG database is the New Mind Maps through Dr. Richard Soutar who I have been working with bi-weekly for about two years.

I obtained my PHD in Psychology at the University of Pretoria, South Africa in 1995.  I completed Post-Master diploma studies at the University of Johannesburg in Neuro-psychology and –physiology.

During this period I completed my Advanced Level III Hypnosis Certificate and have used this tool effectively for a wide variety of problems.  

I now use it in conjunction with Neurofeedback training with good effect.  My passion for Neuroscience, the human brain and its role in human behaviour have led me to specialize into the field of Neuropsychology and I also testified in court as a forensic expert in this domain. My practice expanded into the field of Clinical Neurofeedback since 2005 and since then I became a fulltime Neurofeedback practitioner using various forms of modalities. In 2019 I qualified as an EEG Technician and shortly thereafter became a QEEG-Diplomate. I have been a BCIA mentor since 2018 and have started providing mentoring in the QEEG since 2020.

I feel great passion for the work that I do and I have a constant drive to improve my skills. My work is holistic, taking into account the mind, body and relationship and so I work from a bio psychosocial model. My clients have often had numerous treatment failures.  They feel frustrated and sometimes hopeless. I work hard, do my research and mentor when needed to get to answers that can help my clients to feel some relief. I have worked to become efficient and effective in my work, desiring to save my clients time and money where possible.  It’s a joy to see improvement and hope in the eyes of my clients. I love my work.
