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. Since that time have incorporated into my practice the use of  Neurofield Neuromodulation Techniques: Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequencies (PEMF),  transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS), Random Noise Stimulation (tRNS) and Pink Noise. 
QEEGs are an electrical diagnostic done on all patients initially and are the basis for the treatment plan.  QEEGs are redone every ten sessions to measure progress and become the new map for treatment.  People improve symptomatically as the maps change.
Most people have 20 sessions of neuromodulation and then Real Time Neurofeedback (RTZ) is added for 15 sessions or so in order to help the brain consolidate changes.
 
I am in ongoing, active consultation with Nicholas Dogris, Ph.D. QEEG-Diplomate, the inventor of the cutting edge Neurofield technology,  See his website at www.neurofieldneurotherapy.com

MA, LPC, BCB, BCN

Licensed Professional Counselor
Board Certified in Biofeedback and Neurofeedback

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am dual board certified by BCIA in Neurofeedback (BCN) and Biofeedback (BCB), and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Michigan, Texas, and Virginia. I did my graduate work in Virginia at Regent University, where I first trained as a neurotherapist nearly a decade ago. I continue to be humbled by how impactful Neurotherapy can be in transforming lives and moving people forward.  When combined with psychotherapy, it is an even more powerful modality for change.

 

I enjoy working with children and adults who have neurodevelopmental disorders such as Attention Deficit (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD); Anxiety Disorders including Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Social Anxiety, Phobias, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); developmental trauma, academic and work related problems, addictions, sleep problems, pain disorders, head/brain injury, age-related cognitive decline, pain disorders, migraines, and other problems.  The good news is mental health is brain health.  We can all benefit from optimizing our brains.  Feel free to call or email me so we can work together to enhance your brain health and improve your quality of life.

 

Working in conjunction with the brain as it learns to self-regulate through neurotherapy, the mind is the focus of psychotherapy.  As the brain learns to self-regulate, the mind learns to process and use cognitive coping in an incredible manner.  Psychotherapy or “talk therapy” cannot be under-appreciated.  My approach to psychotherapy is a collaborative effort between the client and therapist.  The approach would be considered eclectic in that I use a cognitive-behavioral theory (CBT) base with various types of therapies and techniques to achieve the agreed upon goals of therapy.
