Truly could not recommend them more! Nearly 20 years of trying different avenues to improve my mental health and this is the first time I felt like I was actually being heard and supported on my journey. The initial brain map helped me understand so much about my own day to day experiences but even more than that, it was much-needed validation that it’s not all in my head (despite the irony). Halfway through my first round of treatment and I do feel a difference on a daily basis. Couldn’t ask for a more supportive group of people to go on this journey with than Dr. Licata and his whole team. I can’t believe I didn’t know about Neurofeedback sooner but I’m SO so glad I found it.

Thank you Vital team! Life changing! Unaware of nuerofeedback and after having multiple concussions I was at a place of needing help. Vital was and is this place for me. Vital is a place of intentionality, authenticity, caring, and supportive throughout the entire process of your care. The entire process was and has been completely enjoyable. From getting a Brain map, discussing your review with Dr. Licata and having continuous and intentional conversations with your brain trainer during your training sessions. The Vital team will ensure your heard throughout your entire time under care. Vital is in a league of their own. Analisa, Bella, and Mateo set the standard when being personable and professional in their care for you. The team at Vital is without a doubt ROCKSTARS!! If you're on the fence about nuerofeedback call the team at Vital. They will guide you through any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you Vital Team for everything you did throughout my life changing journey. Brain Trainer HEROES!!!

This was truly life changing for me. I’ve had trouble falling and staying asleep for most of my life, and after only a month or so or training sessions was able to fall asleep within minutes of my head hitting the pillow. My anxiety used to be out of control as well. I would turn bright red when called upon or while making presentations, forget my train of thought and it was a major problem and disruption in my life. Since finishing the training I have not had an anxious episode and I could not be more grateful. I can’t speak highly enough about the staff and am a huge advocate. If you’re skeptical, I’ll tell you that I was too, but the results were life changing for me. I can’t recommend Vital Brain Health highly enough!!

I have tried many different things for my sleep and mental health and, overall, I tend to be "hypotonic" and impervious, in the sense that I don't experience explicit, outward change. As opposed to many friends and colleagues, who tend to notice stark and considerable progress. Thus, any little change or difference for me is actually big! It's been a few months since concluding my 40 sessions of neurofeedback and I realize I have hardly experienced anxiety symptoms for quite some time. I used to have several weekly somatizations of anxiety, but, now, I cannot remember the last time I experienced this. I am positive my neurofeedback sessions are a direct contributor. Further, the entire team at Vital is wonderful. They are very knowledgeable, informative, kind, and attentive. I am so grateful for all of their care and treatment.

Shout out to the team of Vital Brain Health !!! Analisa, Bella, Mateo and Dr. Licata are amazing. All so kind, thoughtful, compassionate and GOOD human beings. My anxiety level was through the roof, it was hard to stay focused, calm and relaxed. After completing a round of neurofeedback my world changed. I was able to have better quality sleep, less distractions while working and the tiger chasing me seemed to diminish. The best investment I ever made in myself. I wish I knew about this years ago. I highly recommend Vital Brain Health!!!!

The Vital Staff are exceptional in the way they care for clients. They answer any and all questions and make sure that you understand what is happening in your brain. I had a stroke over 20 years ago but since going to Vital I have experienced such tremendous growth. It’s like I’ve been living for 2 decades in a fog and now I’m coming out of the tunnel and realizing that I CAN focus and have energy and it IS possible to live life!

I have done several rounds of Brain Training with Vital Brain Health and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to do neurofeedback. I initially got my first brain map in order to work on a couple things I felt were holding me back from being my best self. Fortunately, the first map I received, showed I had much needed trauma to tend to first from prior physical accidents, concussions, etc. Unbeknownst to me, healing my brain first, started some of the growth I had desired for so long. Once my brain was in a solid position to work on individual issues, Vital Brain Health worked with me to figure out the most efficient routes for growth and assisted me along the way with any questions I had. The office is good at working with your schedule as well, so if you have to drive from far or have a full time job, they're good about finding time to get you yours. They even offer remote training. Drive to Pasadena, get a map, your brain will thank you!

Our child has been going for a year and what a difference. They are able to tolerate changes in life without as much anxiety. Healing from trauma has been much easier.

I brought my pre-teen daughter to Vital to help her with recurring anxiety symptoms. Prior to coming, she was dealing with physical symptoms linked to anxiety such as tummy aches and shortness of breath. Her worry of not feeling well stopped her from doing things she once loved like outings and going to her friend's house. We are halfway through her 40 week course of neurofeedback and she is doing so much better! I no longer see her taking deep sighs all throughout the day, trying to catch her breath. Her tummy aches are fewer and farther in between. She is much more eager to go out and about and is enjoying life. Our quality of life has greatly improved! One of the biggest areas of noticeable growth is her interest and ability to sit and read. Before neurofeedback, she only enjoyed short and easy to read books such as graphic novels. Within weeks of starting neurofeedback she began devouring huge chapter books that are age level and above. The positive effect on her attention span was completely an unexpected and welcome bonus! My daughter loves how fun and relaxing the whole neurofeedback process is and looks forward to every brain training session! We can't thank Dr. Licata and his wonderful team enough for their life-changing work. We are forever grateful!

What Our Clients Are Saying...

After 16 + years of dealing with anxiety that had progressed to the worst it's ever been... I found Vital Brain Health and booked an appointment with Dr. Licata... 20 sessions in and I can already see a major difference, I can enjoy things I couldn't before and just relax and watch television at night , something so simple that means the world when you've dealt with anxiety for years for days on end...

I would 1000 percent recommend neurofeedback for those who don't want to just coat there issues with medication and train/rewire their Brain

Blanca S. | Los Angeles, CA

I always have a wonderful experience when I go into this office. The staff is absolutely incredible, friendly, personal and caring... I have been doing neurofeedback for a few months and have noticed so monumental changes. When I first started seeing Dr. Licata, I was experiencing extreme anxiety and constantly in fight or flight mode, my mind was running non stop and I couldn't sit in one spot or too long.

After many session of brain training, I am no longer in fight or flight, my anxiety has reduced tremendously and I am able to sit still and focus on one task at a time.

Natalie P. | Sandy, UT

This place changed my life and gave me a better one. I was an athlete in college (basketball player) who struggled and suffered for years from a head injury (concussion) that happened during the time I was playing basketball. I tried all sorts of stuffed but never found the treatment or healing that I needed. 

These guys were able to uncover and asses the real problems in just about a week, whereas it took me years to even get somewhat close with all kinds of different medical specialists. They were able to provide a piece of my life back that was lost for a long time.
