Have you found pharmaceuticals, talk therapy or rehabilitation facilities to be lacking or not a good fit for your needs? There is another approach you may want to try. We offer a holistic, non-invasive, learning-based alternative. Neurofeedback teaches your brain to work at its fullest capacity - to switch gears at the appropriate time to improve coordination, mood, and self-regulation of thoughts, feelings and focus.
The system is quite sophisticated and relies on electroencephalograph (EEG) data to feed-back the intricacies of how your electrical brain activity is changing moment by moment through auditory and visual stimulation. Each half-second your neuronal activity is compared to your targets and the brain is rewarded when you meet your goal. In 20 neurofeedback sessions, with feedback every half-second, you have 72,000 chances to reteach your brain. Through this repetition and practice, the brain learns to stay in healthier patterns.Learn More About Neurofeedback >
Neurofeedback is the highest clinically rated treatment for ADHD and ADD. In controlled studies improvements in attention, long and short term memory, problem solving abilities, focus, comprehension and processing speed all improved after 20 sessions of neurofeedback training. Many children can reduce or stop taking their medication entirely with the right number of sessions; and best yet, the results are long-lasting; this is opposed to pharmaceutical remedies, which do not include the behaviorial learning component and only Band-Aid the problem until the medication wears off. With neurofeedback, the child learns new behaviors, impulse control, and using the areas of the brain needed for the task at hand.
Neurofeedback improves learning skills by training areas of the brain needed for executive functioning such as reading, writing math and auditory and visual processing. Several areas of the brain are involved in the process of learning, Our proceedure improves the coordination and communication between these areas. When the timing of communication between these areas of the brain is off, it slows processing and the child must ?catch up? to digest new information coming through; often missing much of what is being taught. Neurofeedback directly trains these areas to communicate effectively for a smoother, less stressful learning experience.
NF is recognized as one of the only treatments for traumatic brain injury. Each type of injury, from minor to severe has detrimental effects to the individual, oftentimes subtle and unrealized to the individual. These symptoms can include a lack of motivation, deficits in memory, speech and articulation, mood (depression and anxiety), sleep disturbances, a quick temper, tendencies towards anger and aggression. With strokes and head trauma, brown outs in electrical firings occur in certain areas of the brain; causing neurotransmitters, nutrients, and electrical stimulation to be pulled away from certain areas, causing other areas of the brain to over-compensate. Neurofeedback works to change the direction of activity, increasing stimulation in these affected areas. Typically recovery is profound and progress occurs rather quickly with head trauma patients.
Dr. Shari Corbitt, the former VP of Promises Recovery Center conducted a study which found 77% of patients who received NF training remained abstinent from all drugs and alcohol at a one-year follow-up. This data was collected using collateral information; using testimonies from close friends/family members to corroborate that the person is substance free. These results are incredible when looking at addiction recovery statistics!
"The zone" or "flow state" are terms coined by athletes and artists to reflect the experience of mind and body in perfect rhythm. Where movements are perfect and spot-on, and the brain works in perfect synchronicity with the body. In 2006, Italy's soccer team won the World Cup after training with the same neurofeedback system used in our office.
Neurofeedback has been long used as a mental fitness program. Studies show a 9 to 23 point increase on the Wechsler Intelligence Quotient test completed by Dr. Othmer, President of the neurofeedback division of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback. Additionally, at a one-year follow up, the clients who continued meditation showed significant gains in creativity, memory, cognition and lowered stress levels.
Our expertise in Family, Couple & Individual Counseling helps individuals overcome challenges by promoting innate strengths and resiliencies while helping them find their own answers and life path. In systemic family therapy, we view problems in the context of inter-generational patterns and witness how a change in one family member can causes a ripple effect in the family dynamic, strengthening the entire family system. For individual counseling, I use a humanistic approach that focuses on self-development, growth and boundless opportunities for growth and change.
We often hold conferences to educate and inform people about special education advocacy, utilizing neurofeedback to combat addiction, treat dementia, harness inner focus (flow state) and more. Connect with us on social media or sign up to our newsletter to stay informed about future conferences and workshops.

An amazing job at making my child feel comfortable. After one session I am seeing a huge improvement. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
My name is Dan Garcia and I am a 35 year alcoholic and addict and Stephanie and Maui Family Counseling has made my life so much better. I highly recommend them to anybody who is looking to better their life. I have been dual diagnosed with depression also and the neurofeedback has really been a benefit.
If I had to describe my experience with MFC and their use of neurofeedback to treat my condition (only a couple sessions so far) I would say that it has awaked and rejuvenated my mind. I would recommend that anyone suffering from mental fatigue or traumatic stress give it a try, as it has had a positive affect on my life and fort that I am grateful. Thank you Mrs. Stephanie Garcia for introducing this life-changing technology to me in my treatment. I am forever grateful! You are a true professional.
