About Debra Burdick

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I am Deb Burdick, LCSW, BCN, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a board certified Neurofeedback practitioner, also known as ‘The Brain Lady’. I specialize in helping clients learn to thrive with the challenges of ADHD, free themselves from the darkness of depression, calm anxiety, lower their stress levels, and increase their daily mindfulness. I teach clients how these issues impact their relationships and guide them to create healthy, thriving relationships.

My extensive experience as a psychotherapist helping children and adults succeed with ADHD combined with being the mother of a daughter who has ADHD has allowed me to connect with and truly help mothers who want to insure that their children with ADHD thrive. I combine knowledge gained from my own personal healing journey, my parenting experience, my clients, and my professional study of ADHD and brain dysregulation into my holistic approach.

I developed my own mindfulness practice to deal with a chronic illness (now thankfully healed). I found it so helpful in my own life that I started teaching my clients the skills I was using. I went on to develop clinical material on mindfulness skills and created a 4 step process for working with clients using mindfulness that I perfected in my private practice and in an intensive outpatient program. My clients have shown me that mindfulness skills improve the rate and quality of treatment outcomes.

You may have heard me speak at a CMI/PESI workshop or online at What the Experts Know or AttentionTalkRadio. Besides being a national speaker and author I have been providing outpatient psychotherapy and Mindfulness skills to clients since 1990. I added Neurofeedback to my psychotherapy practice in 1999. I am an expert author on SelfGrowth.com.

I teach workshops including: Mindfulness Skills and A Holistic Approach to Success with ADHD to psychotherapists, teachers and other helping professionals, nationally. Mindfulness training for business leaders and executives is another of my passions. You may have heard me being interviewed on internet radio or seen my work featured in The Day newspaper, Self-Improvement Magazine, Coaches Magazine, and Parenting Powers television show.
