Brain Balance Jacksonville


Brain Balance Has a Non-Medical Approach to Help Your Child

Brain Balance is the leading drug-free program designed to help kids improve focus, behavior, social skills, anxiety, and academic performance. Our comprehensive programming incorporates learnings from cognitive, behavioral and nutrition fields—an integrated approach that is literally redefining what’s possible.

Is something blocking your child’s social, behavioral or academic progress? Brain Balance picks up where conventional approaches leave off, going beyond the treatment of symptoms to address root causes. At Brain Balance, we’re not about coping with barriers. We’re about knocking them down, one small breakthrough at a time.

Research Shows Brain Balance is Effective

A Harvard study found that kids who participated in the Brain Balance Program saw a significant reduction in ADHD index scores, discernible changes in hyperactivity, enhanced cognitive attention, and reductions in oppositional behavior.

We are continually collaborating with world class researchers to show the efficacy of the program and reveal through data how the Brain Balance Program can help children, teens and adults improve.

Jessie McCullough

Lead Coach and Assessor

Hello! My name is Jessie and I am 23 years old. I grew up in Saint Johns County, FL and attended the University of North Florida for my college education. In 2021 I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, with a focus in Child Psychology, and a minor in Sociology. I have always been passionate about working with children, my background includes countless nanny jobs along with working in childcare. Once I furthered my education at UNF, I experienced an expansion of both my knowledge and passion for child development, and helping children live their lives to the fullest. Nothing compares to being able to watch children grow and succeed before your eyes. Other than my job here at Brain Balance, I love to spend time in nature, engage in physical activities, relax with yoga, spread positivity, and have fun times with friends and family!

Hi! My name is Ryan Thomas and I am thrilled to be part of the Brain Balance team! I was born in Tennessee, raised in Virginia, and have lived all over, but most of my family lives in Florida and I am happy to be back in the state. I am currently completing my Masters of Health in Kinesiology and Lifestyle Medicine at the University of North Florida here in Jacksonville. I am also a member of the Track and Field team at UNF. I have always been incredibly passionate about and dedicated to both sports and academics. I am fascinated by the foundational habits and behaviors that lead to success across all areas of life. I have studied Buddhism and transcendental meditation to learn the power of the mind while pushing my body to the limit in track to find what I’m capable of. What I have learned is that the mind and body working together are capable of miraculous things! I believe that every human being has the power to take control of his/her life. In my opinion, Brain Balance is a program that is designed perfectly to achieve this. I love bringing my ideas and what I have learned about success to Brain Balance to help kids get the most out of life!
