Stone Mountain Counseling, PC uses a variety of therapeutic approaches, especially Biofeedback and Neurofeedback, along with Psychotherapy and Counseling, Health and Nutritional Education, to help people achieve a calm and centered state, along with a sense of well-being and optimal performance. (See About Us. We use a variety of tools and techniques: See pages:  Diagnosis and Brain Mapping, Brain Avatar, the LENS, NeuroField, NeuroGen and Other Treatments). The bar at the top of our homepage contains some of the problem areas for which Neurofeedback has been helpful. The bar at the left gives answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Tells you about our Center,  the various treatment modalities we use; and gives you access to resources, articles and books. You can also find how to contact us.

Stone Mountain Center (SMC) uses the above-mentioned and other modalities in an approach called Integrative Modalities.  Our director, and expert administrative staff and clinicians, guide you to find the right modality or combination of modalities to help you or your child with a variety of problems: Affective Disorders, Bipolar or  Monopolar Depression, including Cyclothymia and Seasonal Affective Disorder, Anxiety and Panic Disorders, Attentional Problems (ADD or ADHD), Autism (or what used to be called Asperger’s Syndrome), Chronic Fatigue or Fibromyalgia, Depression, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).  Neurofeedback does not promise to cure any diagnosed medical condition, simply introduce flexibility and the concept of the balanced brain and body to any situation, to make life easier for a client/patient and their family.

The stroke that is the major subject of this article was extremely massive, enough to be life threatening, and take out most of Michael Schacker’s left hemisphere, including Broca’s area, which generates speech, and much of the left motor cortex, leading to paralysis of his right hand and leg.  With the permission of Barbara Dean Schacker, Michael’s wife, I have used the title of her website: “Stroke Family,” because when a loved person is “stroked,” the whole family also is “stroked,” or traumatized. Barbara is also a co-author for this article.
