Mood and Stress-Related Dysregulation: Depression, irritability, anger, fatigue, and burnout

When we think of mood dysregulation, we typically think of sadness, irritability, over-reactions to stress (anger, frustration), inability to experience a certain level of joy, difficulty letting things go and problems turning off our mind and our thoughts. Any or all of these can be related to a pattern of over or under-activity in key networks in the brain. This is why stress is more than just an inconvenience, it can have a lasting effect on brain networks that get “stuck” producing the same old pattern. Neurofeedback can directly address these stuck patterns of electronic activity by training the brain to produce more balance brain wave rhythms that the brain needs to have familiarity with producing for itself on a daily basis. These “neural” states are conducive to relaxation and recovery. Medication and counseling are still the first-line approaches.

The Training Program

Neurohealth’s 40-minute sessions teach your brain to change itself.

During 40-minute training sessions, you’ll sit in a private room to watch a movie or play a video game. Sensors monitor your brainwaves and connect to a computer. The computer is connected to the screen, telling the screen to display better when your brain is producing more balanced brainwaves. Over the course of the program, your brain learns to stop producing brain patterns causing your symptoms and start performing optimally.

Neuro Fact

If theta activity is dominant and a person is overly emotional and/or depressed, reducing theta is thought to help alleviate symptoms

What Clients Say About Us

Julie W.
Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M.
I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B.
Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.
