Dr. Cano is a Navy veteran and licensed psychologist in the states of Colorado and Hawaii. She is the founder and clinical director of Neurofeedback Colorado Springs. In the Navy, she served with VF-101, a fighter squadron based in Virginia Beach, VA. After leaving the Navy, she returned to Colorado Springs to finish her education. She received her Bachelor’s in Sociology/Criminology from From CSU-Pueblo. In addition, she holds a certificate in Forensic Criminology. Her Master’s and Doctorate are in Clinical Psychology from the University of the Rockies. She spent 3 years (5,000 hours) working with and being trained by a Board Certified Pediatric Neuropsychologist in Colorado Springs. This gave her experience in neuropsychological assessment and rehabilitation of highly complex children and adults, most of whom suffered from an array of DSM diagnoses. This is also where she was introduced to and trained in neurofeedback.
As a retired Navy veteran, she works extensively with the veteran population and their families, advocating for a holistic assessment and treatment approach for our veteran population. Additionally, she serves as the founder and president of the Neuro-Therapy Foundation; a 501c3 created to raise funds for the rehabilitation of PTSD and mTBI through a combination treatment of neurofeedback and psychotherapy.
