Here is what some of my former patients are saying on Yelp! and other consumer-review sites.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Robert Ray for the past four years. I first came to him in crisis, seeking relief from debilitating anxiety and depression and hoping to gain insight into its origination. Having a background in holistic health and medicine myself, I was drawn to his then PhD pursuits in Mind-Body Medicine. Dr. Ray provided a welcoming and calming environment from the beginning. His office and his approach offer a sense of positive energy and healing.
Our initial sessions included Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS) and the use of a photonic stimulator in combination with talk therapy. Dr. Ray is highly knowledgeable and well-trained in the use of LENS, exhibiting an unwavering ethical responsibility to his clients. I am also in awe of his ability to be equally patient, kind, and non-judgmental. He told me from the beginning he would not give up on me – something I had difficulty accepting; yet four years later, here we are.
Over time we have also incorporated hypnotherapy and guided imagery into our sessions. I have never met someone as committed to seeking out current trends in research and professional training as Dr. Ray. It is a rarity to find someone as devoted to his clients as he is.
I am here today because of Dr. Ray and his commitment to my overall health and well-being. If you are searching for someone who will actively participate in your healing process, I highly recommend him without hesitation.
I get LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System) treatments with Robert. I started working with Robert a year ago after I had an episode that landed me in the hospital. My symptoms were severe anxiety from trying to get off progesterone (I’m a sensitive snowflake). My blood pressure was sky high and my regular doctor didn’t know what else to do for me, so she suggested neurofeedback. My anxiety was so severe I was crawling out of my skin. I felt like I was going to explode. I had seen a friend a few days earlier that looked amazing- she had healed from her bout of anxiety after getting off her meds and she recommended Robert, so I scheduled with him. The image of her peaceful face in my mind’s eye was enough for me to commit to giving LENS a try for 10 sessions.
During the 4th session my anxiety went away! That was enough for me to know LENS was for me.
Over the past year, Robert has completely changed my entire neuroendocrine system! He has cured with LENS my supposedly incurable conditions of Adrenal Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. (look it up- Mayo clinic says it’s incurable).
I started treatment on March 12 and a few weeks later on April 4 was my last migraine day. (I had been averaging 3 days a week of migraines for about 7 years). I haven’t had a migraine since! I’m completely off all meds including hormones, B12 injections and Metformin! I’ve got energy like I used to! I’m no longer napping, no longer bed ridden, I have energy to give and serve. I have energy to have job again. My gums are no longer inflamed with the pockets at the dentist previously going from 5’s and 6’s down to 1’s, 2’s and a couple of 3’s. My muscle and joint inflammation is gone. My hormone levels are higher than when I was on the meds. I’m sleeping so much better. The inflammation markers in my blood are gone. My tachycardia, arrhythmia and POTS have resolved. No more heartburn. I have normal days now like I used to live! What a relief!
Robert is special and the best LENS practitioner to see because he is a doctor that truly knows what is going on with the brain and body. He has extensive training in many types of neurofeedback and the brain. He uses LENS neurofeedback because he gets such quick and long lasting results. His expert and extensive training helps him customize the LENS protocols to fit my special brain and body issues. He spends the time and energy to treat me correctly and maximize my healing.
When I first started treatment, I went twice a week because my nervous system was highly activated (it was an emergency situation). I started feeling much better in the second week! As my brain and body has calmed down, I only go in once in a while for a LENS treatment. I had been struggling with my chronic conditions for 9 years. It was like being on a roller coaster of cascading symptoms. Now I feel stable and am rebuilding my physical health to lose weight I gained being sick and rebuild my physical strength and stamina. (I used to be a massage therapist with a full practice, taught yoga and dance, hiked daily, swam, weight lifted). This next year my focus is “Build my body, build my business”. I’m so excited to now be able to have a future- one I can actually count on and commit to. I’m blessed.
It feels like the reset button has been pushed on my entire physiology. The “malware” has been taken out of my body and now I’m functioning! Robert and LENS has given me my life back! I’ll never be able to thank Robert enough for helping heal me.
Robert has been an integral part of my healing process. He has helped me develop skills to address severe anxiety. When traditional therapies have been ineffective, he always knows the newest and most progressive treatment options. He is truly an expert in the field of counseling and neuropsychotherapy. You could not be in better hands.
