Watch the success stories of two Veterans that have gotten the help they need for PTSD at New Life.


We offer Low/No-Cost Neurofeedback to all military veterans

Our passion is to help military veterans and others who are suffering with PTSD get their health and quality of life back.  We are able to provide low/no-cost care to Veterans with PTSD through funding provided by Sgt. Zach's Freedom Foundation.  If you would like to make a donation to help Veterans in the Upstate receive care, please visit www.SgtZach.org.

We seek to identify and address underlying neurological dysfunctions

Every patient we work with starts with a comprehensive functional neurological evaluation and a blood chemistry analysis to determine the underlying causes of their PTSD and other symptoms.

It's a myth to think PTSD only affects military personnel

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a condition that can affect any person who has been through a traumatic event. It is a serious condition that needs to be addressed.

FAQs About Our Clinic

How long will it take for my PTSD to get better under your care? +

If you expect to get completely better in just a few days or weeks, you may have poor expectations. You've been dealing with these issues of post traumatic stress, probably for a long time, and you cannot expect to get better very quickly. Timing will vary from person to person.

However, if you do exactly what we ask you to do as part of your individual program, you can expect to see small, incremental improvements even in just the first couple weeks. As time goes on, you will continue to notice greater and greater strides.

You can realistically expect to see changes to your health and well‑being within a few weeks, to maybe a month or two. To really turn things around health‑wise, however, you may need to be a little more patient.

Depending on the severity of the issues, determined by the testing, it could take three to six months or more to fully make the changes we need to help you meet your health goals.

What if neurofeedback doesn't work for me and I don't get to feeling better? +

What I can guarantee is that if you hire me as your doctor, I will do the absolute best job I can to identify the causes of your condition, and to develop a unique, personalized therapy plan to get you the best results possible. I will also track your progress through the program using both subjective and objective assessment measures.

If we're not seeing the progress we expect, we will make changes as necessary until we find what works. In general, the results of our patients are usually directly proportional to the effort they put into the program. The more strictly you follow what you're asked to do, the better the results you will experience.

If you are looking for a quick fix, if you want me to do all the work, or if you're just plain not motivated to get better, you will not be successful. However, if you are ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work, our program can change your life.

Does neurofeedback replace the need for counseling for PTSD? +

With neurofeedback therapy, which is the keystone of the therapeutic approach we use in our office to help retrain dysregulated or dysfunctional brain wave activity, we also want to make sure that the patient is talking to a qualified counselor to be able to express and convey their emotions, and have proper feedback and encouragement in that regard from a professional as well.

It is very important for a person undergoing therapy in our office to be also undergoing professional counseling.  The therapy in our office does not replace counseling. It is supportive of that, and they are mutually beneficial.  When a patient does counseling and neurofeedback together, we typically see better results than if either one is done in isolation.

How do I get started and become a patient at your clinic? +

The first step is to use this website or call our office at (864) 757-8500 and schedule your consultation. We will begin the extensive investigation into your case before you even step foot into the office for a consultation. When we meet for the first consultation, we will listen. Then, we will begin to connect the dots for you, to create a picture of your specific situation.

After we identify all the potential problem areas, we will begin to actually run the necessary diagnostic tests to confirm these suspected problem areas. These tests include in‑office neurological evaluations like quantitative electroencephalogram, or QEEG, and laboratory diagnostics like comprehensive blood work.

When the results come back in, a personalized plan of care will be crafted specifically for you, to give you hope for a New Life. Our therapeutic plan may consist of brain‑based therapies, and neurofeedback specifically based on your diagnostic tests, as well as dietary and lifestyle changes and nutritional supplementation to address any physiological dysfunctions we may have found on bloodwork.
