Your brain plays a major role in how you think, feel, and behave. Neurofeedback is one of the innovative treatments available from John G. Garofalo, MD, and the mental health specialists at Strategies for Success that helps improve mental and emotional well-being. Neurofeedback teaches you how to take control of your brain so you can take control of how you feel.

Neurofeedback is a noninvasive, drug-free treatment that helps you retrain your brain.
Your brain has the ability to easily shift from a relaxed state to an aroused state based on input. These changes in your mental state rely on your brainwaves: Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta.
However, not everyone can easily shift from one state to another because of trauma, environmental factors, genetics, or nutrition.
Strategies for Success is a psychiatric clinic that offers many services to help you meet your wellness goals. It offers neurofeedback using the advanced BrainCore Neurofeedback system for patients looking for a non-drug treatment to improve mental health and well-being.
Neurofeedback works by allowing your provider at Strategies for Success to track and map your brainwaves using an electroencephalogram (EEG). During brain mapping, your provider assesses the electrical impulses of your brain’s frequency bands: Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta.
An imbalance in your brain’s frequency bands may indicate:
An imbalance in Delta or Theta brainwave activity may occur in people with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, or a traumatic brain injury.
People with depression, avoidance behavior, and fibromyalgia may have an imbalance in Alpha brain waves.
Anxiety, insomnia, and obsessive thinking occur when there’s an imbalance in Beta brainwaves.
With the brain mapping, your provider identifies these brainwave imbalances and uses the information to help you change your brainwave activity to improve how you feel and function.
Your provider customizes your neurofeedback treatment plan based on the findings from your brain mapping. Neurofeedback is like a workout for your brain.
During treatment, your provider connects you to the BrainCore Neurofeedback system through wires and sensors placed on your head. The software in the neurofeedback system collects your brainwave activity, looking for moments when your brainwaves are in order.
The software then delivers information back to you in the form of a game, movie, or sound, which helps keep the brainwaves in the proper order. Your brainwaves control the activity of the software.
Schedule a consultation at Strategies for Success to see if you’re a candidate for neurofeedback. The psychiatric clinic treats many health conditions that benefit from neurofeedback, including:
You may have both brain mapping and neurofeedback brain training in conjunction with counseling or psychiatric care to get enhanced and more permanent results.
