What’s your name, what do you do at Neurocore, and how long have you worked here?
My name is Alexa Sorensen and I’ve been with Neurocore since February 2015. I’m a LMSW center team leader at the Holland center location.
Tell us about a particularly rewarding experience you had at Neurocore
Throughout my time here at Neurocore, I have had many rewarding experiences – it’s hard to pick just one. Many of these experiences involve clients who come to us as a last-ditch effort to feel better. These clients have tried everything from therapy, pharmaceuticals, and other resources with little results; they find themselves at Neurocore with little hope. The rewarding part is that once these clients complete the Neurocore program, many of them leave feeling significantly better. The best part of all is that we, as a team, are able to provide these clients with a new sense of hope. So, I’d say that helping clients find hope again is the most rewarding part of my job.
What’s the most interesting thing you’ve learned on the job (at Neurocore)?
The most interesting thing that I’ve learned on the job has been learning how to conduct and read EEGs. I find it fascinating that we can read brainwaves in real time and interpret them to help clients better understand themselves. The brain is a magnificent muscle, and it amazes me daily what it can do.
If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
Monsters Inc. is one of my all-time favorite movies – I could watch this movie again and again. I love all Pixar movies, but this one in particular is fun, light hearted, and always makes me laugh.
