Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Jesse King

Every time Jessica Harper, the owner of Aspen Valley Counseling in Orem, got in her car, she knew she was going to miss the entrance of wherever she was going. So, without fail, a chorus of groans sounded off in the back seat of her silver VW bug as her children cried, “Not again!”

Harper isn’t the only person who has things she wants to work on. People from all over Utah county are doing neurofeedback therapy to improve their attention, anxiety, and brain injuries. After 20 sessions of neurofeedback therapy, Harper said she hasn’t missed a turn into an entrance. “It’s pretty amazing that neurofeedback—something so simple in practice—has helped me in such a day-to-day thing.”

In a typical neurofeedback session, a neurofeedback technician places electrodes on a client’s head, and then the computer program creates images on the screen that represent the client’s brain waves. The client will see their own brain activity and learn to change it, which helps them learn to manage their emotions, thoughts, and performance.

Neurofeedback can help cases of anxiety, ADHD, insomnia, autism, test anxiety, and traumatic brain injury. Bree Noorda, a hairdresser in Utah County, just finished a round of 20 sessions and said it has really helped her regulate her emotions and manage her ADHD. “I can concentrate a million times better,” she said. “I wanted to do neurofeedback to help improve my concentration since I’m going back to school and actually want to be able to concentrate on my textbooks.”
