About Dr. Barry Jay

About Center for Integrative Psychology - West Bloomfield Psychologist - DSC_0006Barry Jay, Ph.D., BCN About Center for Integrative Psychology - West Bloomfield Psychologist - BCIA_BoardCertifiedInNeurofeedback_Gold

A Wealth of Experience in Traditional Psychotherapy I have been helping people change since receiving my Ph.D. in 1977. My training included a one year internship at the Judge Baker Guidance Center, an affiliate of the Harvard Medical School.
I worked at the Hawthorn Center, a state hospital for children in Northville, MI. for 17 years. As the Chief of Inpatient Psychological Services I was a consultant to hospital staff on difficult to treat children. Holding a senior staff training position at Hawthorn’s APA approved internship program for psychologists, I was cofounder of the family therapy unit there. An adjunct instructor at the Wayne State Medical School from 1981-1994 I taught a 9 month class to psychiatric residents on the psychodiagnostic assessment of children. I left that position 22 years ago and have been working in private practice in West Bloomfield since that time. I provide patients with a list of psychiatrists or consult with their physician when medication is indicated.
I am BCIA Board Certified in Neurofeedback.  I started using Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) in 2005, and since that time have incorporated the use of QEEG, Loreta Neurofeedback, Neurofield Dehabituator, Neurofield Stimulation, and live RTZ training into the brain training options in my practice.
I am in ongoing, active consultation with Nicholas Dogris, Ph.D. QEEG-Diplomate, the inventor of the cutting edge neurofeedback technology, Neurofield..
