Have you ever heard anyone say “It’s all in your mind” as a way to dismiss illness, pain or anxiety? Conventional wisdom has tended to belittle the mind and its role in our lives. We are given a mechanical or chemistry based model of how our bodies work, in which pills and surgery are the primary methods of treatment. However, neurofeedback training is an effective alternative!
When you hurt, your mind is controlling the pain. When you become ill your mind is directly involved in the disease. When you are sad, happy, or afraid, your mind is at work, delivering messages to your nervous system. The mind is always part of the picture, affecting the body in countless ways. By getting your body to collaborate with your mind through neurofeedback training, you can form an active partnership that allows you to heal, restore, and renew yourself.
We are located in Pasadena CA, but we commonly serve residents of nearby areas!

Dr.Victoria Ibric is a true scientist who works from the heart. She maintains a careful consideration of the data as she assesses and treats people in a comprehensive way. She is one of the few neuroscientists who has broad training in Medicine, Oncology, Neurofeedback, Biofeedback and Human Potential. It was a most wonderful experience to be trained by her and learn some of her strategies that are highly effective with clients. It was very helpful to see someone who is very skilled in mainstream medicine also move fluidly in the world of complimentary or alternative care using the science that supports the practice and measuring the outcomes. Overall Dr Ibric is a resource without peer and a gifted healer of body, mind and spirit.
I am a 39 year old woman that has struggled with depression and anxiety for over 20 years, and of course with depression and anxiety comes anger and frustration. I have tried several medications and seen several psychiatrists. I was so lucky to have been referred to Dr. Ibric from family members that have also been to her. One year ago I completed 20 sessions of neurofeedback with Dr. Ibric, and I feel amazing. My quality of life has improved so much. I have not had any episodes of depression nor do I have symptoms of anxiety anymore. I feel happier, I am able to concentrate better. It feels like a ton of weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I’m able to focus with a clear clutter free brain. I am a mother of four beautiful children and life can be very challenging at times but with Dr. Ibric’s help life has become very rewarding and peaceful.
My son is in the autistic spectrum. He’s considered high-functioning. Before he started his Neurofeedback training with Dr. Ibric, his performance at school was suffering. He had trouble focusing and fidgeted a lot. Keeping him on task was a challenge. After several months of NF training my son’s teacher and assistant could not believe the change! He’s focusing more, thereby receiving better grades and enjoying school to boot! He no longer dreads getting up and attending class on a daily basis.
Six years after NF training ended, I am still receiving the benefits of my training session with Dr. Ibric. I recognize that my skills and creative abilities have not only increased, but are much more stable and accessible!” Peak Performance!
The patients I referred to Dr. Ibric had tremendous cognitive and emotional results.
Dr. Ibric’s gentle supporting and compassionate approach to me as a patient, has encouraged me to work toward recovery from chronic pain in a more focused manner and I now approach my obstacles with a more positive point of view.
After my head injury as a child, I suffered for years from insomnia, learning problems, limiting compulsive behaviors, severe depression, and reduced social awareness. My soul was shattered. Neurofeedback with Dr. Ibric knitted me back together, allowing my mind to gently heal. Today I am happy, connected, sleeping, and free to live again. Dr. Ibric is not only a world-class clinician in her field but also an empathetic and gifted healer. I recommend her unreservedly!
Victoria has helped my son with neurological problems of a long standing nature. He has progressed remarkably over the last year becoming much happier and more stable. We were about at the end of our rope before we found her and the change looking back at the last year is in the miracle range.
I recommend Dr. Ibric for Neurofeedback services. She is an expert in the field and has an impressive resume.
I was suffering from an inability to stay asleep…..After only two months of sessions, I was starting to sleep more often through the night. I no longer awaken suddenly for no reason. But what is even more surprising is my increased mental awareness.
There were times I would walk in with a headache and walk out without a headache. Not even medication could get rid of my headaches that quickly. After 20 sessions, I feel my body is much more balanced, and I am able to exercise and run again five days a week, which feels great. I am able to focus at work much better and I am really appreciating the times I am completely pain free now! I have been able to get off two of the three medications I was taking, and I hope to get off the last one soon. Thank you.
Victoria Ibric is a superb Neurofeedback trainer, clinician, and human being. She is brilliant, hard-working, kind, and ethical. I have learned a great deal from her and look forward to following her excellent work for many years to come.
Biofeedback has given our family and school personnel a great deal of hope not only for my son, but, for other children.
Dr. Victoria Ibric is an expert in Neurotherapy and as a teacher of Neurology and Neurotherapy. She does original research in Neurotherapy and is well known for her work with the Roshi and pRoshi . I have great respect for her work and consult her often in regard to Neurotherapy and the use of the Roshi and pRoshi.
I have recommended it to other people who live with seizure disorder and chronic disease and they have had similar experiences. Dr. Victoria Ibric works with a patient population that includes seizure patients and they respond as I did. This cannot be placebo, and I had not responded to placebo before.
My son is literally vaulting over the competition at the University of California, Berkeley. He was smart to begin with, unquestionably, but his work with you has certainly gone a long way to unleashing the potential that he possesses.
As a participant in Dr. Ibric’s internship program I have been delighted with the training and experience I have received. Combining a rigorous approach to diagnosis, Neurofeedback training with the ROSHI instrument, and the tracking of the clients progress, with a ‘person centered’ trainer/ client relationship, Dr. Ibric is a wonderful mentor and teacher. I am most grateful to have had the opportunity of studying with her.
