Christen H. Stahl, MA, BCN completed her Masters in both Community and School Counseling from Regent University (Virginia Beach, Virginia) in 2012 and has been active in neurofeedback since her 2011 internship with Fly Family Therapy. The experience under Dr. F. L. Fly allowed Christen to work with a diverse population and wide range of mental health concerns, gaining experience with clients from age 2 to an elderly stroke survivor in a rehabilitation center. It was amidst this period when she came to understand the restorative potential of combining mental health counseling and neurofeedback.
Once moving back to Ohio in 2011, she assisted Thomas F. Collura in opening The Brain Enrichment Center where she was the Associate Clinical Director from 2012-2017. During this period, Christen learned a considerable amount about QEEG and neurofeedback, absorbing as much as possible from the extremely knowledgeable Thomas F. Collura. Since then she works as a neurofeedback clinical consultant by facilitating the implementation of neurofeedback into practices across the country. Christen also works for Brownback, Mason and Associates doing neurofeedback software development by creating settings to run neurofeedback training sessions, and accompanying manuals.
