  Anthony Silver:


 “Gray Matters grew from an overlapping interest in two different areas:


  My interest in neurofeedback began with my frustration with the prevailing treatment of   children with ADHD. Children were frequently medicated too quickly, and often on a trial and   error basis - an extension of the diagnostic process, rather than its product. Medication was   being used as a “band aid”, while the underlying issues remained unchanged, all while   children were dealing with significant side-effects. In short, medicine was not keeping-up with   neuroscience - an issue I’m determined to address.


  My interest in psychotherapy has been a lifelong passion. More recently, it was strongly   influenced by the experience of my own divorce. I believe that too few therapists are willing   to take a position, but that sometimes that’s precisely what’s needed.”

Dr. Smith has been working with children and adults suffering from depression, anxiety, low energy, digestive pain, insomnia, migraines, etc. since 2008.  In 2010, she had a powerful personal experience with Neurofeedback and decided to incorporate it into patient care.  So she began studying under a private mentor and took continuing education courses through the Behavioral Medicine Research and Training Foundation.  She collaborated with a series of other doctors and practitioners.  Now, having integrated some the industry’s most advanced Neurofeedback equipment (the Brainmaster Discovery 24E), Dr. Smith is able to  improve the quality and longevity of her patient outcomes dramatically.
