Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Adam Harcourt is the owner of Imagine X Functional Neurology, a board-certified Functional Neurologist, 4th generation Doctor of Chiropractic, and is certified in Functional Neuro-Orthopedic Rehabilitation (FNOR).

He was born and raised in central Pennsylvania and received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh, where he also completed a certificate in the Conceptual Foundations of Medicine. After exploring several different types of healthcare, he kept coming back to the 'treat the problem not the symptom' outlook. Dr. Harcourt completed his graduate work at Life Chiropractic College West, where he earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic. He graduated Cum Laude, with honors, and received the highly-coveted Clinical Excellence Award for his graduating class. He then pursued a 3-year post-doctorate degree in Functional Neurology through the Carrick Institute, earning him his Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Neurology (DACNB). 

Dr. Harcourt is also a Professor of Clinical Neurology at the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies, where he travels both domestically and internationally instructing future Functional Neurologists. He has 2 current papers from 2016 that he presented at the International Symposium of Clinical Neurology (ISCN) to be published in Frontiers of Neuroscience on his treatment of Concussion and Migraine. He presented his research on Multiple Sclerosis at the ACCRAC in 2014. Dr. Harcourt is also on the Board of Directors at Jodi House Brain Injury Support Center in Santa Barbara, CA.

Dr. Harcourt uses the latest research and techniques to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives. He takes the "whole person" approach to your health, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the brain, and he will be able to determine the root of the imbalance and create a personalized care plan to suit your individual needs. 

Dr. Harcourt and his wife are both dedicated to giving back to the community and supporting local charities and non-profits.

Dr. Ben Terrano is a board-certified Doctor of Chiropractic and is currently pursuing board certification as a Diplomate in Functional Neurology (DACNB) and Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (CCEP).

Originally from Northern California, he attended California State University, where he earned a degree in Psychology, Kinesiology and Movement Studies. He was an active participant in the kinematics and cadaver labs, performing research studies and cadaveric dissections to better understand the intricacies of the human body. He showed special interest in how the body moves and functions correctly.

Dr. Terrano is also a Certified Personal Trainer and Massage Therapist and practiced both of these in the last decade while pursing his doctorate. His background in bodywork gives him great experience for a hands-on approach. His passion for holistic health and proper brain function led him to Functional Neurology because he felt he could do more to get to the root cause of people’s health concerns. Dr. Terrano attended Life Chiropractic College West in the SF Bay Area, graduating Magna Cum Laude with clinical honors. He has completed over 400 hours in Functional Neurology training through the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies.

Dr. Terrano utilizes the most current, state-of-the-art therapeutic applications to make individualized care plans for each patient. His philosophy is to get people as well as possible, as quickly as possible using integrative techniques. He specializes in optimal athletic performance and complex neurological disorders.

Dr. Stephanie Barbakoff is a board-certified Doctor of Chiropractic and is currently pursuing board certification as a Diplomate in Functional Neurology.

Originally from the east coast, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree, graduating cum laude, from State University of New York. With a strong interest in health science, she began exploring different avenues to work with patients in a healthcare setting. She worked in offices of osteopathy, obstetrics, and chiropractic before deciding on holistic health care. She attended Life Chiropractic College West where she earned a Doctorate in Chiropractic, graduating magna cum laude with honors. She has completed over 400 hours of post-doctorate training through the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies.

In addition to academic study, Dr. Barbakoff prides herself on her work in the community with several women’s groups. Her passion is speaking on equality, women’s rights, and discussing natural birth options for expecting mothers. Women are the primary demographic who suffer from chronic migraines. Dr. Barbakoff enjoys helping patients find relief from their debilitating condition through drug-free options.

Dr. Barbakoff strives to help patients achieve normal function and optimal performance. Through functional neurological applications, she is able to help patients suffering with a wide variety of disorders including concussion, dizziness/vertigo, and chronic pain. 

Dr. Daniel Perman attended Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, where he pursued a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Neuroscience, graduating cum laude with honors. He was also a research assistant in the Neurobiology Department of Harvard Medical School. His intense interest in Neuroscience led him to pursue his Doctorate of Chiropractic and ultimately his Diplomate in Functional Neurology. 

A New York native, Dr. Perman grew up with a passion for science and the performing arts. Throughout his tenure in Boston, he participated in numerous research studies. While he enjoyed research, he wanted to work directly with people. This desire, along with his interest in neuroscience, led him to Functional Neurology. In 2015 he graduated Salutatorian, summa cum laude from Life Chiropractic College West in California, then pursued his board-certification in Functional Neurology from the Carrick Institute. For Dr. Perman, Functional Neurology brilliantly combines his love of science and performance. 

Dr. Perman's expertise in human neuroanatomy and neurophysiology has led him to specialize in treating a wide range of neurological disorders in addition to chronic pain, headaches/migraines, and vestibular issues such as dizziness/vertigo and impaired balance. Functional Neurology allows him to help patients experiencing debilitating symptoms, those wanting to proactively avoid the progression of symptoms, or those who simply want to optimize their bodies and their lives.
