Guiding individuals and teams to elite performance through psychological counselling, biofeedback and neurofeedback
Dr. Rose Schnabel earned a Ph.D. in Applied Psychology from the University of Toronto in May 2021 . Over the course of her career, she has effectively offered Biofeedback and Neurofeedback treatment to increasing numbers of clients after seeing positive results that went beyond traditional psychotherapy. She has since dedicated her career to understanding the complexity of the human mind and the application of the most advanced biofeedback and neurofeedback treatments. She became Board Certified by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) in 2001.
Following successful practices in the New York City region, Dr. Rose Schnabel opened York Region Therapy in 2005 in Aurora, Ontario to ensure the community had access to an evidence based psychophysiological treatment approach. She has trained in multiple forms of biofeedback, including heart rate variability, and single channel neurofeedback. Dr. Schnabel is successfully employing Neurofeedback to treat many conditions, ranging from those that are chronic in nature and difficult to treat (i.e., severe PTSD, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Impulse control issues) or have minimal treatment options (e.g., autism spectrum, concussions) to those that may be mild in nature (i.e., attention, performance based skills, stress). Dr. Schnabel has employed biofeedback and neurofeedback to help individuals make progress that they were unable to with multiple traditional forms of treatment.
An experienced entrepreneur and founder of a media and communications firm, Paul spearheads community outreach efforts and manages the support team for Corporate, Association and School affiliations along with virtual treatment platforms that integrate wearable devices that measure heart rate variability, galvanic skin response, and other neurofeedback technology to measure your brainwaves and train your mind to achieve the highest level of focus during athletic activity.
Michelle handles the day to day operations of the clinic and would be pleased to answer any billing and scheduling requests you have. She is also an experienced biofeedback clinician.
