Ms. Garcia has developed a practice in Neurofeedback Training, which can be provided in conjunction with counseling or independent of counseling.

Neurofeedback, also known as EEG Biofeedback, is a non-invasive therapeutic intervention.  Training allows the individual to improve brain regulation through operant conditioning.  Through the training experience an individual develops improved ability to control brain regulation which leads to an increased stability in affect regulation.  Neurofeedback challenges the brain to produce more of the brainwave frequencies that produces a state of focus and calm.  The ultimate goal of treatment is to create stability in  brainwave activity which leads to an increase in flexibility and a decrease in reactivity to life’s stressors. 

Neurofeedback has been found to be effective for various conditions such as problems with sleep, attention and focus, ADHD, anxiety, depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Attachment Disorder.  It has also been utilized by athletes, business executives and various types of professionals to enhance performance. 

Electrodes or sensors are placed on the scalp to record electrical activity or the EEG.  This computer/brain interface gives the client and the clinician real time feedback on brainwave activity.  The client receives information through audio and video feedback while also getting supportive coaching from the clinician.  During training the client experiences the connection between a calm state, optimal brainwave activity and emotional control.  Through this interactive experience the client is actually making changes to the brain.
