    About Dr. Becky Kaufman

    My name is Becky, and I’m a licensed professional counselor. I’ve been in this career field for 15 years, and I’ve accumulated extensive experience working with children, teens, individuals, couples and families. I received my bachelor’s degree from Park University and went on to get my master’s degree in community counseling from Georgia Southern University. I earned my PsyD. from California Southern University in 2020. I am a registered clinical supervisor with the state of Virginia. I have several years of supervisory experience working with interns and residents, and love the teaching aspect of counseling, whether it’s with clients or new clinicians.

    My dissertation for the Psy.D. was extensive research into using neurofeedback to support the treatment of PTSD in Combat Veterans. Through this research I became immersed in the positive outcome of using neurofeedback to treat a multitude of issues, and as a result I knew I wanted to incorporate it into my clinical practice. I am a Board-Certified Neurofeedback Technician (BCN) through the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA). While this national certification in neurofeedback is not necessary, I feel that through this in-depth study I will be able to provide a clinically solid program for our community. I am also a member of the International Society for Neuroregulation and Research (ISNR), the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS), the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB), and the Mid-Atlantic Biofeedback Society (MABS).

    Enough about work, though…here is a snapshot of who I am personally.  In my free time, I’m usually hanging out with my amazing family.  I love to be outside, so I’m often gardening, hiking, or chilling on the beach somewhere. I also love to cook, so you’ll find me making a mess in the kitchen most days. I have two dogs who are beautifully lazy, and two cats who have made it their life’s work to constantly bring in woodland creatures from outside, so we do a lot of wildlife rescues inside my home.  I’m a constant learner, so I read a lot.  I’m a big proponent for living a life you’re at peace with, so working myself into the ground is not something I do, and I’m so thankful I have the opportunity to help others achieve a beautiful work/life balance through neurofeedback.

    My Mission

    • To educate the public about mental health issues, treatments, and processes.
    • To educate the public about neurofeedback/neurotherapy as an option to help ease and potentially eliminate symptoms of numerous mental health issues.
    • To empower individuals to take control of their own health and well-being through open dialogue, access to information and ongoing support.
    • To raise awareness to the needs of the community, the benefits of mental health treatment, and reduce the negative stigma surrounding those who receive mental health services.
    • To provide supervision and mentorship to rising clinicians as they work to support our community and society as a whole.
    • To maintain the integrity of the therapeutic profession by following the ethics set forth by the American Counseling Association (ACA) and the Virginia Board of Counseling.

    I am here for you.

    Regardless of the situation you currently find yourself in, my goal is to help support you through this moment in time. Life is hard, especially now. All of our lives have been turned upside down and back again. No one has escaped the ongoing trauma and general disruption of our world for the past few years. Through neurofeedback, I can help you learn how to regulate your emotions and gain meaningful results.

    I’m excited to offer this therapeutic option to the Stafford/Northern Virginia/DC area in the hopes that I can help support those who have not found relief through the use of traditional therapeutic interventions.
