Welcome to Pathways to Optimal Living

We provide neurofeedback training and life coaching. It is our goal to assist our clients towards optimal performance in aspects of living that are of concern, seem troublesome or interfere with living life to the fullest.


What is it we mean by Optimal Living? We are referring to having the ability to respond, rather than react, to the complexities of daily life: to be present to the moment, being able to do your best without trying to do your best, at any given moment. This represents something different than Peak performance, where a person performs in a highly focused, concentrated manner for a brief period of sustained effort. Living optimally day to day makes peak performances on demand more likely to occur. 

Family influences, environmental factors, events and traumas sometimes occur throughout our life journey that can inhibit and impair our development and our ability to function as well as we would like even when we make our best effort. Coping skills we developed early on may not work now. Symptoms and issues, whether emotional, cognitive, or neurophysiological, that interfere with our inborn potentials and capacities can hold us back and disrupt our ability to live life to the fullest.

NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback Training

Beginning in 2004, we began offering neurofeedback training powered by ZENGAR Institute's innovative comprehensive NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training system. Caitlin Cochrane and Karen Cochrane are Master Certified NeurOptimal® Practitioners.

The NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training system is the only NFT system and training available that trains your brain and central nervous system based on its own moment to moment activity. Don't let someone play God with your brain! As humans beings we are naturally self-regulating given the correct information. The NeurOptimal® NFT system is based in non-linear dynamical systems, what we are as human.
