  • About Us 

BrainWorks is directed by Brandi Lozada-Johnston BCN, QEEG-T candidate, Neurofeedback Board Certified - BCIA.org, Psychology, BA & Dance Educator (State of NM Licensed Teacher pre K-12 Performing Arts and Physical ). 

As an Advanced Competency Board Certified Neurofeedback Practitioner and eight years’ experience providing Neurofeedback services to address emotional, learning, performance skills and stress-related concerns, I am confident of my ability to make a meaningful and positive impact on the lives of my clients. With an extensive background in teaching and education in dance and performing arts, I have seen first-hand how the mind and body can train together to enhance health while increasing confidence and aiding self-realization. 

This experience compelled me to pursue the burgeoning field of Neurofeedback which has been scientifically proven to greatly improve brain function and treat a wide range of issues, including brain dysregulations, sleep disturbances, and learning disorders in addition to serving as an affordable way to optimize cognitive functioning (concentration, flexibility, & memory) and upgrade athletic performance. I offer proven expertise assessing client needs and goals, developing and administering Neurofeedback training plans, documenting and analyzing progress, and adjusting Neurofeedback protocols to improve training effectiveness. I would be pleased to continue my record of success as your next Neurofeedback Coach. See client testimonials below.

Testimonials: 

My name is Carrie, I am the parent of a teenage daughter that received neurofeedback therapy from Brainworks , Brandi was her therapist. Brainworks came highly recommended from the PNP Diagnostic center in Dallas Texas. 

I am in the alternative/holistic health field. It was important to me to get effective care for my daughter without using the common and often harmful drugs used for depression and anxiety. My daughter struggled with drug use, impulsivity, Low self-esteem as well as severe anxiety and depression .  

My daughter received approximately 30 sessions of NFB. And this time the therapist Brandi kept in very close contact with myself and my daughter. She did this so she could effectively plan my daughters next session. I started to see changes in my daughter immediately. My daughter seemed very emotional in the beginning but then I really started to see her become a much calmer happier person.I am thankful and happy to say that my daughter lives a drug-free less angry and productive life. She had previously done lots of talk therapy which I still value, but she would not be where she is without her NFB sessions.

Neurofeedback from[ Marcus Cohen age 68 years.

My first neurofeedback session showed high-amplitude waves of excitation sweeping my right hemisphere, while my left hemisphere had little visible activity at all. This corresponded to a state visualization and ideation, not uncommon to me. As I recall I had taken my prescribed ADHD medication that morning, which perhaps exacerbated this right-hemisphere "brain storm". I subsequently discontinued use of this medication.

My next session was several days after a car accident in which I had received a concussion. Activity was low on both sides, resembling a sleep state.

In my next few sessions, we went through training paradigms of both reward and active observation and balancing of local activity. I learned to decrease "brain storms" in favor of regular resting rythms in the right hemisphere, and balance out activity between hemispheres.

What is remarkable are the concurrent subjective changes I felt happening in my conscious and reflective mind with this hemispheric "reconnection". I felt my intuitive "leaps" subject to rational scrutiny and my rational thought processes extended and enriched by intuition.

Oddly enough, my initial emotional reaction was a sadness that such integration had not come earlier in my life. This was, however, quickly replaced with hope to use this powerful tool of neurofeedback training to further balance and condition that powerful engine, my brain. 

Ms. Johnston helped our 6 year-old son regulate his emotions by focusing his attention and relaxing his body. He learned how to lower his anxiety (i.e., went to school without melting down) and learned how to redirect his anger (i.e., telling us he was angry versus immediately acting out). I think we're continuing to learn how to be less reactive as a family, verbalize what our needs are, breathe and relax. In addition, Ms. Johnston is an experienced teacher so she wasn't intimidated by our son's intensity (and charm-optional). I highly recommend Ms. Johnston & BrainWorks
