Jean Alvarez 

My name is Jean Alvarez. I head up our neurofeedback research efforts, though I also see individual clients who are not involved in one of our studies. My doctorate is in social psychology and I have worked as a university professor and as a consultant to many not-for profit organizations. I became interested in neurofeedback when, after treatment for cancer, I experienced the cognitive problems often known as “chemobrain.” (You can find a short video about that experience here.)

After seven years of cognitive struggles, fatigue, sleep impairment and mild depression, it was NeurOptimal neurofeedback that brought me back to my pre-cancer self. This very positive experience led me to want to make the same approach available to other people, and also led to our study, “The Effect of EEG Biofeedback on Reducing Post-Cancer Cognitive Impairment,” published in November 2013 in Integrative Cancer Therapies.

I’ve come to love doing this work. Each person who comes to our clinic has a unique story, and it’s such a privilege to hear those stories and watch people’s lives improve. Whether a person is suffering with a medical concern, a psychological/emotional concrn, or simply wants to function better in any aspect of his or her life, I treasure the opportunity to accompany each of them as they move toward wellness and high function.

I am a certified NeurOptimal Master Trainer, working in our west side office at River’s Edge, located on 32 beautiful acres overlooking the Rocky River Metropark. It’s a wonderful, calming place to take a walk or sit in the sun before or after a session.

When you call our office, I’m ordinarily the person you’ll connect with first. I really look forward to talking with you.

A former graduate faculty member at the University of Akron, I am interested in research that will help us understand the effectiveness of systemic neurofeedback for brain injuries, and possibly pinpoint those for whom this approach might be most helpful. I am a Certified Trainer for Zengar neurofeedback equipment, now offering neurofeedback sessions in our west side office at River’s Edge, located on 32 beautiful acres overlooking the Rocky River Metropark.



Julie Rink Mokotoff, MS. LPCC-S (Inactive)

My name is Julie Mokotoff, and I am excited to be beginning my career with neurofeedback, having just completed my certification in spring 2016.

I have a Master’s Degree from Johns Hopkins University in Clinical Counseling, and have spent most of my career providing Cognitive Behavioral, Family Systems and Maudsley therapy to children, teens and families. Currently, my counseling license is on inactive status due to taking the last 7 years to be a full-time mom.

I am interested in using the practice of neurofeedback to help people of all ages minimize negative symptoms and maximize their potential.
