Counseling Services

At the Better Brain Center, we offer counseling services to enhance your quality of life and response to stress.

Americans are numbing out our feelings, trying to make certain everything that is uncertain in life, and placing blame on everyone and anything that doesn’t fit into our concept of how “things should be.” The result is we are the most unhappy, anxious, self-medicated, and addicted group of individuals in history. The result is we feel horrible, take more meds, eat more food, act more disagreeable, and feel more alone and ashamed than ever before. We try to avoid all these negative experiences, but by doing so we also love the possibility of feeling anything good.

By using best practices of psychotherapy, psychiatry, and neurofeedback, the counselors and therapists at The Better Brain Center can help you learn how to live a full and worthwhile life.

Self-Harm Behaviors: We understand self-harm is not the same as being suicidal. It’s a form of releasing and expressing emotional pain. We will help you find healthier ways of expression and how to find solutions to those things that cause your pain.

Life Transitions: Life transitions are not necessarily about “bad” things, though any transition can cause stress and anxiety. We can help you identify the thoughts and worries you have about change and find effective ways to cope with those experiences.

I have been very impressed and delighted to see some of my more challenging patients with migraines who had been on a number of medications finally get relief by undergoing neurofeedback. I referred them to Dr. Stokes’ neurofeedback clinic because we were running out of conventional options. Neurofeedback is something more physicians need to add to a repertoired approach to migraines.

Our adopted son threatened to break apart our family with his violent rages. He also had crippling fears and anxiety and could not fall asleep at night. Now after 4 months of training, we have a happier, calmer and more insightful child than we could have ever imagined. He is sleeping finally, has friends and seems happier in general. He is completely off the medications he was taking prior to neurofeedback. My entire family is so happy with the results that neurofeedback has provided that I am going to bring in my daughter soon to help her with her focus.

Before neurofeedback, I couldn’t get my son out of bed in the morning. He would sleep through the first 2 hours of school and not be able to remember his assignments. When he did complete them, he would forget to hand them in. Now he is waking up right after his alarm goes off and he is no longer sleeping or daydreaming in class. His grades have improved dramatically and his soccer coach wanted to know what he is doing since his performance and stamina has gotten so much better so quickly. We are so happy we found neurofeedback and Dr. Stokes.
