meet Dr. David Granoff
clinical Psychologist &
neuroptimal® neurofeedback specialist
I have been a clinical psychologist in private practice since 1997. I received my BA in Psychology from the University of Michigan in 1984. I completed my doctorate in 1994 at Yeshiva University in New York City. I spent the time between graduating college and entering graduate school attending Duke School of Law and working in the restaurant business as both a bartender and waiter. This turned out to be great training for my chosen profession.
I was originally trained as a psychodynamic psychotherapist and also did copious amounts of post-doctoral training in Gestalt and Cognitive-Behavioral Psychology. My clinical practice is varied as I work with children and adolescents as well as adults. I see my clients in individual, family and couples sessions.
I have taught at both Touro College in New York City as well as Cleveland State University. I served as the psychologist at Villa-Angela St. Joseph High School for three years and I am currently a consulting psychologist at University School in Hunting Valley. I am married with three school-aged children. In addition to my practice and family, I fill my life with working out, reading and attending as many Cavs and Indians games as I can.
In 2002, I was searching for an alternative treatment for boys with diagnoses of ADHD and Bipolar Disorder. The typical treatment of medication and talk therapy had limited usefulness and significant side effects. I wanted a treatment that would be non-pharmacological and still impact symptoms such as impulsivity, low-frustration tolerance, poor judgement and moodiness. These youngsters also often had volatile relationships at home.
My research led me to NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback, a non-invasive brain training system developed by the Zengar Institute in Canada. The results I began to see in my clients were immediately noticeable. THe results of brain training were often significant and sometimes profound. As a result of this experience, I expanded my use of NeurOptimal® neurofeedback to other patients with similar success. Since those early years, I have become a Certified Master Trainer in NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback and have presented at The Zengar Institute’s International Conference on Research and Development in NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback.
While the science behind this incredible technology fascinates me, it is the results I have seen that have made me a passionate advocate of this brain training system. My team and I have been honored to help many clients over the years in the Greater Cleveland area and look forward to meeting with you to discuss how it might help you.

Sessions with assistants are also offered at a reduced rate, helping to make this powerful brain training more accessible to more people. Under the guidance and oversight of Dr. Granoff, these caring and professional staff members are committed to providing each client with a relaxing and pleasant experience that allows them to receive the full benefits that NeurOptimal neurofeedback sessions have to offer.
