Cheryl started experiencing immense family challenges when she adopted a sibling group of 3 in 2011. Due to early childhood trauma, many behavioral challenges exist for the Wood family children which caused Cheryl to search for a solution. Neurofeedback training, as well as specific Attachment Therapy, was not available here in Alaska, which led the Wood family to travel out of state to seek help several times. After a long journey, Cheryl now has the certifications to provide Neurofeedback Training and has the desire to do so because it has helped the Wood family in their own lives. Cheryl is very thrilled and eager to share her experiences with her local community.
