Pricila Vizcaíno Roel
Clinical Specialist for Remote Training
Pricila’s role is to guide and supervise Center for Brain Training clients throughout the U.S. who’ve purchased home use equipment to ensure they’re receiving maximum benefit.
She became involved in neurofeedback after her son Cesar was diagnosed at age four with severe ADHD and a sensory processing disorder. He also had visual and auditory processing difficulties. Numerous doctors and therapists were unable to help, and she began seeking alternatives.
She eventually learned about neurofeedback and the option of being able to train at home. She enrolled in Mike Cohen’s Neurofeedback 101 course for professionals, purchased equipment and began training Cesar in her home in Monterrey, Mexico. Cesar’s improvement was remarkable. His attention and sleep improved immediately. With time, he gained more self-control, tolerated frustration better and his school performance improved. Today he is a successful high school student.
Cesar’s improvement prompted Pricila to start a neurofeedback practice in 2011 and to seek advanced education in the field. Already holding a master´s degree in education from the State University of New York (SUNY), in 2021 she earned another master’s degree in neuropsychology from Universidad ISEP (Spain). “I pursued this degree in order to learn more about conditions affecting the brain as well as more about brain rehabilitation,” she said.
“Neurofeedback technology changed the life of my son, and I am happy to be part of helping change the lives of others,” she said. “Now that I’m handling the remote training, I’m meeting people from other parts of the world, learning new ways to help them reach their goals and broadening my scope of competencies. It’s exciting every day and very rewarding.”
In her spare time, Pricila, who is fluent in both English and Spanish, likes to cook and read.
