Jan Matney

Jan Matney, LCPC

nCenter Director

My name is Jan Matney and I am the nCenter’s founder and director, as well as a licensed clinical professional counselor in the state of Montana and a neurofeedback practitioner.  I have worked counseling and training individuals and teams since 1990 using holistic, solution-focused approaches. I oversee the neurofeedback at the nCenter to ensure that clients receive accurate neurofeedback protocols to support them in the counseling process and in their lives.  My goal is to be a collaborative and respectful leader at work and to create and maintain a positive, healing environment at the nCenter, both for staff and clients.

Administrators

Claud Matney

Claud Matney, PE

Neurofeedback Engineer and Information Technology Administrator

I am a registered professional engineer in the state of Montana and the state of Texas.  I have a B.S. in electrical engineering and an M.S. in civil and environmental engineering.  My background in electrical engineering makes the Rife, Nogier, and Solfeggio frequencies employed in neurotherapy particularly interesting to me.  I see the results that clients get from neurotherapy, and it is fascinating to me to see the practical application of frequencies, harmonics, and modulation in the healing process.  Keeping voltages within safe milliamp ranges we see positive results in cognitive efficiency, mood, and emotional regulation. I started out as a HAM radio operator in 1960…and now I’m known as the “Granddaddy” at the nCenter!

Ruth Story, LCPC

My name is Ruth Story, I am a licensed clinical professional counselor with the state of Montana and I joined the Belgrade nCenter in 2016.
