Dr. Don Posson started his pathway into the mental health field midway through his Navy career. He bootstrapped his way through a Master’s in Mental Health Counselor and assignment as a Navy Substance Abuse Program Manager in Sicily, Italy as his twilight tour.
His post-navy career has included extensive experience in children’s mental health, addictions therapy, and higher academia. He currently is a full-time professor at National University, in San Diego, CA, as well as the co-owner of The Las Vegas Neurofeedback Center, Southern Nevada’s only stand-alone neurofeedback treatment center. He is an avid advocate and treatment provider for vets providing free neurofeedback for them through Homecoming for Veterans (Homecoming4vets.org).
For the past five years, he has been rebuilding a large mountain retreat home with the mission of treating veterans with addiction, TBI, and PTSD issues with his unique biological, psychological, and spiritual approach to brain-recovery.
Dr. Don has a broad breadth and depth of experience in working with individuals across a broad spectrum of mental health imbalances. Since he began work in EEG Neurofeedback, he has successfully brain-trained individuals with just about every common mental health imbalance. His work, as is the work of many in this coalition, is ground-breaking in its promising impact on how we care for our wounded warriors.
