We’re seldom the first option folks seek when challenged by depression, anxiety, ADHD, insomnia, or some other troubling condition.
Way too many people are living with symptoms that could be greatly improved. At the Center for Brain Training, we are passionate about helping people feel better. We work with scientifically-based, cutting edge technology that few providers offer.
Our other goals are to help clients perform better and lessen their reliance on medications. A key tool we use is neurofeedback. Neurofeedback helps improve brain performance. When the brain becomes more balanced and is able to function more efficiently and effectively, a variety of symptoms naturally diminish.
The Center for Brain is more than a business. It’s a team of compassionate professionals whose mission is to enhance the lives of people who suffer from conditions that can be significantly improved with the help of neurofeedback.
Before walking through our door in a last-ditch effort to get non-drug relief – and answers – our clients have frequently seen numerous healthcare professionals or therapists, used a variety of medications, diets and nutritional supplements, and feel they’ve “tried everything.”
What Was the Personal Motivation Behind Starting the Center for Brain?
The Center for Brain was co-founded in 2006 by Michael Cohen. In 1995, his father underwent neurofeedback in a desperate attempt to get a handle on years-long, severe depression after medications and even electroconvulsive (shock) therapy failed to bring him out of unrelenting despair. After a short course of neurofeedback, Mike’s father’s personality returned, and his mood improved to the extent that he re-joined the world.
This dramatic change in Mike’s father prompted Mike to co-found a neurofeedback center in Georgia. He has become recognized as a leading expert in the field, teaching neurofeedback to physicians and healthcare professionals both in the United States and abroad.
In 2005, he and his wife Carolyn moved to Jupiter, Florida to be closer to Carolyn’s father in Boca Raton. The following year, he opened the Center for Brain Training in Jupiter.
We Are More than Neurofeedback
Besides brain mapping and neurofeedback, the Center for Brain provides a comprehensive program that offers up to 7 different types of neurofeedback, some innovative biofeedback tools including our “body biofeedback system” and other neurotechnologies. We customize our program to fit each individual. The type of services we include can be found under our Services page. One very important service is brain mapping. Brain maps (also known as qEEG’s) measure the electrical activity from 19 points in the brain and specifically identify where timing issues are negatively impacting mood, behavior, or attention. Armed with this information, neurofeedback training can be targeted to the problem areas, resulting in better, and often, faster results. This information can also be used to suggest appropriate medications and reduce the process of trial and error in prescribing.

Elizabeth, age 35, mother of an active 2 year old, came in with anxiety, and up to 5 panic attacks a day. She said they “are taking over my life”. She had problems with anxiety since the age of 17. She was also suffering from mild depression and was on an antidepressant. She wanted to have another child and she wanted an alternative to medications to help resolve the anxiety before she got pregnant.
As she began treatment, she said that she had to talk herself in coming because she was so anxious. After 12 sessions, she no longer had the anxiety or panic attacks and had reduced her medication in half.
Thank you for all your help and making me feel much better! You should take great pride in what you do for a living! Many people want to be in professions where they help people but often don’t feel that they actually succeed. You can know for certain that you succeed in helping people and make the world a better place …
This place is amazing. I HAD massive anxiety and sleep problems – I would feel nervous just when I thought about sleeping. Through the brain training, PEMF, and the various other suggestions and guidance given to me by the Center for Brain I can now say gratefully I sleep well and I’m back to my “normal” self – all without pharmaceuticals! Thank you Center for Brain!!!
The Center for Brain Training was nothing less than a miracle for me!

Mike and his team asked great questions to understand the issues and get to the root of the issue and tried several techniques all of which started working almost from the beginning! I cannot recommend this Center enough for anyone suffering from Insomnia. depression, anxiety and trauma and want to heal naturally in a loving compassionate space! Run don’t walk to the Center for Brain Training.
After 40 years of chronic pain, I finally found the help I needed and the relief that I was desperate for. I began as a skeptic, but never once did I have the feeling that they just wanted my money. They truly care about helping people and even make recommendations that are less beneficial to themselves. These people are worth trusting- if they can help, they will find a way.
Two words – phenomenal results. Michael and the staff are so kind, thoughtful, and compassionate. The treatment provided relief for PTSD, anxiety and depression when nothing else worked.. I am so grateful!!
My autistic non-verbal son has received treatments for approximately 9 months at the brain center. I was advised it would take several treatments to possibly get results. The results I was hoping for was to hear my son speak again. My son is 7 years old now and his autism stopped his speech when he was 18 months old. I cried when he bagan to start speaking again and I wish my late wife/my sons mother was here in the flesh to hear his voice again.Read More
The staff has been excellent even when my son was anything but behaved they demonstrated excellent patience. The Center for Brain was suggested to me and my late wife a few years ago; however we decided to try Hyperbarics treatments without any success. I wish we would have tried this treatment instead. Thank you for bringing sunshine back into my life when it’s been anything but happiness since my wife passed away. It feels good knowing that my son will not have to go through life without the ability to verbally communicate as he battles the day to day battles with Autism. I know the results very with each individual child or adult; however I do highly suggest to anyone that if you have the opportunity to give this treatment a try. Thank you all at the Center for Brain for all you do!!!!

If you are looking for a more effective alternative to medication, look no further. The staff is incredibly supportive.
