Neurofeedback monitors brain wave activity, then uses sound or visual signals to retrain the client’s brain signals to ease his or her mental health symptoms.
Nontraditional Treatments for Mental Health Conditions
What We Mean by Alternative Therapies
Some people who have tried traditional talk therapy have found that it did not have the desired results. The variety of alternative, or nontraditional, therapies available at Aspen Valley Wellness allows us to truly tailor a more comprehensive treatment plan for each individual.
Nontraditional forms of therapy may be used as standalone treatments or in conjunction with traditional talk therapy. We offer a range of alternative therapies that includes everything from brain mapping and neurofeedback to expressive art therapy, meditation and diet changes.

- Neurofeedback (also known as EEG biofeedback)
- qEEG brain mapping
- Medication evaluation and management
- DNA/genetic testing (for medications)
- Food sensitivity testing
- Nutrition and health coaching
- Audio-visual entrainment (brain wave entrainment)
- Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES)
- Body and emotion code
- Technology-assisted meditation
- Expressive arts therapy
- Sand tray therapy
About Our Therapists and Therapies
Offering alternative therapies in our office is what largely sets Aspen Valley Wellness apart from other mental health providers in the area. Our therapists have a unique perspective on mental health. With a variety of resources at hand when developing treatment plans, our therapists often take an integrative and holistic approach with clients.
Some of our alternative therapies, such as technology-assisted meditation, may be used during individual therapy sessions, while others require that you schedule a separate appointment with a specific therapist.
Please note that payment for many alternative therapies is not reimbursed by all insurance companies. Prior to beginning treatment, please check with your insurance provider to learn if your treatment is covered.
