Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD by Tim Hale Photography
There is a woman who travels the world with a suitcase that holds neurofeedback computers. The computers are packed carefully in what little comfortable clothes she's bringing for the intentional play and family dynamics teaching that she will offer in the home she's invited to help shift. This woman has been called a brainiac, a whisperer, a leader who follows the needs of people everywhere, and more.
This woman is Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD. As a mental health therapist who makes house calls, she works in a very different way than most. Families hire her to join them in their home and--while giving every family member neurofeedback, not just the adult or child with a label--she finds out exactly what their goals are and why, and then she shows them how to get what they want. Within three days there is a positive shift, new understandings and actionable tools for change, every single time. It's amazing!
Because one family at a time just isn't possible, Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD came up with a beautiful and brilliant answer. An internet reality series that invites cameras (and hence, an audience: families!) into homes around the globe, allowing Lynette to offer her therapy free to families willing to be on camera, and her teachings free to the audience in a concrete see-how-it's-done kind of way. Of course, every family she visits is drastically different in style, culture and beliefs. This leads folks to wonder if the lessons can be useful for them and their own unique personalities and challenges. Lynette solved that concern by deciding to choose five different families in five different countries with five different brain disorders for her show. Each highlighted family gets five free days with Lynette Louise, their own neurofeedback software and a lifetime of follow-up!
FIX IT IN FIVE with LYNETTE LOUISE aka THE BRAIN BROAD was born! The first two families have already been filmed and helped beyond anything they felt they had the right to imagine. Episodes one and two (a single mom and her autistic seizure disordered daughter in Kampala, Uganda) are available for viewing on The Autism Channel. Audiences of parents, professionals and individuals with mental health issues are waiting anxiously for more, while Lynette works tirelessly to come up with the funding to edit the next few episodes.
Folks rallied and helped to finance the filming and editing of the now available shows via a crowd funding campaign on IndieGoGo. So Lynette has decided to create and share another summer campaign and celebration!
She is celebrating because the show has found a home on The Autism Channel and is already creating change and comfort for many. She's campaigning to keep on sharing and teaching and showing! For more info on the show (or to go ahead and contribute!) take a moment to check out this summer's IndieGoGo campaign. Share with your friends and on your social networks! The camera man/editor for the show is ready to get back to work on episode three, and the program coordinators at The Autism Channel are ready to get back to promoting and showing the show.
