Dr. Christine Kraus, PhD

Bio

Dr. Kraus obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration and worked in the field of accounting for a few years before realizing that this area was not her passion. During this time, her brother-in-law developed grade 4 brain cancer and she was intrigued by his changing behavior and became very interested in the subject of neurology and behavior. The neurosurgeon at that time suggested she come and conduct research with him and she did! For 3 years, on her own time, she conducted research particularly in the area of neurodegenerative diseases; during that time she wrote and published papers worldwide with research in the area of Parkinson’s disease and cognitive functioning as a primary focus. She became so interested in this area that she decided to pursue a degree in Clinical Psychology at Loma Linda University. She obtained her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and then her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Neuropsychology. She continued to conduct research and publish papers.

Post-doctoral experience was at the Pediatric Assessment Program at Loma Linda University. She maintained the position of Supervisor of Doctoral Students who conducted psychological and neuropsychological assessments in children and adolescents with various disorders. It was during this time that Dr. Kraus realized she wanted to find a treatment for these children that was more natural, yet effective. After extensive research, she found EEG Biofeedback, or Neurofeedback.

Using Neurofeedback, Dr. Kraus has treated individuals from age 3 to 87, for disorders ranging from autism to peak performance, including depression, anxiety, bipolar, migraines, sleep disorders, anger or frustration issues, and memory.

Dr. Kraus practices Clinical Neuropsychology, Neuropsychological Testing, Neurofeedback, Cognitive Rehabilitation, Therapy, and Hypnosis.
