QEEG BRAINMAP +
INTERPRETIVE REPORT 

A qEEG (or brain map) measures, records and analyzes electrical activity in the brain and compares it to normative or average values.  Brainwave data reveal a detailed picture of how your brain is functioning relative to these normative databases. This precise measurement of brainwave activity reveals which areas of the brain are functioning optimally, and which areas can be improved upon during neurofeedback training. 

$800

New patients interested in our Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) program must have a clinical referral from an established mental health provider. Current provider can fill out our referral form and fax to 828-378-0223, email to kap@wideningcirclesnc.com or mail to Widening Circles, Attn: KAP, 25 Orange Street, Asheville, NC 28801.

COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT +  CONSULTATION

At Widening Circles, we utilize an integrative approach to treatment planning by offering a comprehensive assessment including medical/psychiatric evaluation, biopsychosocial interview, qEEG (commonly known as a brainscan), and Chinese medicine assessments. 

While we recommend incorporating all these assessment modalities to optimize treatment planning, we require a biopsychosocial interview with one of our KAP therapists and a medical/psychiatric evaluation with one of our prescribers to determine suitability of KAP treatment. 

 

The KAP therapist will meet with you for 1.5 hr to gather detailed background information about your strengths, needs, abilities and preferences. One of our prescribers will meet with you to determine medical eligibility for KAP. Our prescriber will review your medical history and discuss an initial dosage and route of administration  (IM, oral solution, troche) prior to your first KAP session. 

If you choose to incorporate qEEG and Chinese medicine, these will also be scheduled. The KAP therapist will integrate all assessment findings with the team and create an individualized treatment plan.
