Why Lifetime Optimization?
Brad Pendergraft had a vision to pull together the most effective resources and treatments in the mental health field and put them under one roof. Brad had many modalities to draw from as a: Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a Certified Master Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming and Clinical Hypnotherapy and a trained as a Life Coach and an Executive Coach.
In early 2011, Brad found the last piece to this picture in the form of the cutting-edge neurofeedback, Brainwave Optimization. Brad experienced powerful results from undergoing Brainwave Optimization treatments himself, and simultaneously was witness to the life-changing results experienced by his son. Shortly following, Brad added Certified Brainwave Technologist to his long list of credentials, and in the spring of 2011, Lifetime Optimization was born.
