The School of Neurotherapy is the joint venture of Dr. Dogris and Dr. Thompson, whose mission is to bring high-quality, comprehensive training to the field of Neurotherapy through the three pillars of Education, Technology, and Application.
Welcome to the School of Neurotherapy
The School of Neurotherapy was established to help new and seasoned clinicians navigate their way to becoming bona fide neurotherapists. Inspiration for the formation of the school came from the plight of many new neurotherapists—who were challenged to find pathways to information and understanding of software, hardware, certifications, neurofeedback, biofeedback, locating a mentor, and more.
The school has developed over the years from offering neuromodulation bootcamps and advanced in-person courses to providing a larger variety of courses, classes, study groups, lectures, certification course work, and more, to enhance the experience of new and seasoned clinicians to elevate their practice to the next level.
We are based in Santa Barbara, California, teaching online and traveling to assist clinicians across the globe with whatever they need and desire to advance their practice and advance the well-being and health of their patients.

Dr. Thompson is a clinical neuroscientist, licensed marriage and family therapist, licensed quantitative EEG diplomat, and licensed neurotherapy professional. She has worked in neurology clinics, as well as clinical settings. She holds two master’s degrees, one in Depth Counseling Psychology and another in Communication from Pacifica Graduate Institute and the University of Maryland, respectively. She has a PhD in Psychology; her dissertation was on the intersection of psychodynamic psychology model of the psyche and electroencephalography (EEG).
Dr. Thompson has served as the Executive Director of the Western Association of Biofeedback and Neuroscience and worked as a neurodiagnostician in neurology clinics. Dr. Thompson regularly delivers public and trade organization lectures with various groups, such as the International Society of Neurotherapy Research, California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, and The Biofeedback Society of California conferences. Her talks include topics such as: Brain Mapping (Quantitative EEGs), Clinical Quantitative EEGs, Brainwaves 101, Neurotherapy and induced meditative states. Variations on these themes have been presented at Pacifica Graduate Institute and to the lay public of Santa Barbara in public lectures.
Dr. Thompson’s central aim with all clients is to help them evolve. She guides Neurofield Neurotherapy in development and delivery of cutting edge neurotherapy techniques into mainstream Santa Barbara, by bringing her skills in Brain Mapping (Quantitative EEG), Brain Training (using neurofeedback, biofeedback and neurotherapy protocols), and brain-oriented psychotherapy to locals and visitors so that Neurofield Neurotherapy may serve as a source of healing for all individuals in need.

Dr. Dogris is also founder of NeuroField, a hardware and software company that focuses on neuromodulation devices, such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS), transcranial random current stimulation (tRNS), transcranial pink noise current stimulation (tPNS), and pulsed electromagnetic frequencies. These stimulation modalities combined with neurofeedback create a state-of-the-art system and treatment modality. Dr. Dogris began teaching neuromodulation to clinicians in 2010, after developing the first NeuroField device: a pEMF unit. The NeuroField company has since taken off – featuring a robust software called Neurofield 64, as well as a series of hardware devices and Neurotherapy machinery that make up what NeuroField, Inc. is today.
Dr. Dogris is the brain behind the NeuroField system (along with his engineer business partner, Brad Wiitala). The NeuroField training modules are drawn from the hard work Dr. Dogris and Brad Wiitala have poured into the NeuroField system since 2008.
