The Neurology of the brain and Behavioral change:

Over the last two decades, Dr. Goldwater has been following the state of the art research about the brain and how to help develop hope that change is possible in adulthood.  The brain is capable of changing not only in childhood.  It has plasticity that allows us to add new learning and "delete" unwanted behaviors that are no longer helpful for our survival.  Dr. Goldwater's specialty is to help unleash the self-healing properties of your brain.  Listen to This Video:
