He started learning and teaching biofeedback in the 1970s. He taught psychology full time at Penn State and Delaware County Community College and part time at several others colleges. After earning his MBA in 1983 he also taught courses in business.
In 1984 he became an executive coach focusing individuals with their job search. He worked closely with well over 1000 managers, professionals and executives in all industries to help them attain a better job.
Gary emphasized assessment and reaching down deep to recall and articulate each client’s best work. The accomplishment material bred confidence and the stories helped every aspect of the job campaign until they were poised to succeed in a new position. He helped well over a thousand clients attain a better job.
In 2001, Gary launched QuickJobSearch.com to serve a national clientele. Innovative career services include new ways to find an executive position. His writings on conducting a job search are collected at GaryAmes.net.
Gary returned to biofeedback and neurofeedback in 2003 with intensity. He quickly absorbed the basics and nuances of advanced techniques. He became certified in the most complex and sophisticated neurofeedback methodology by completing The Technical Certification Course in NeuroCARE Pro (Comprehensive Adaptive Renormalization of EEG): “The Period 3 Approach To Central Nervous System Functional Transformation Using Non-Linear, Dynamical Control Procedures.”
Gary is an early adoptor of the Passive Infrared Hemoencephalography, a new form of neurofeedback. He was impressed by the stunning clinical and experimental results achieved in just the past few years by this sub-group within the neurofeedback community.

End Migraine Headaches
Migraine headaches are intense and intractable. Medicine is helpless but to counsel headache avoidance and to manage the pain. However a combination of neurofeedback techniques is remarkably effective at reducing or eliminating the debilitating symptoms. Well over 90% of those suffering from migraines achieve at least 50% reduction of headache pain. Many receive complete relief. Clients transform or upgrade their stress response so that no vomiting is involved and there is no need to hide their head under a pillow. There are many other side benefits to a more skillful operation of the central nervous system. See EndMigrainePain.com.
Gary’s corporate practice will employ biofeedback and neurofeedback with salespeople and executives. Salespeople experience greater mental concentration and follow-through as well as a stronger interpersonal connection with their customers. Neurofeedback promotes better sleep and resolves numerous psycho-physiological annoyances.
Executives improve their focus, problem solving, and leadership ability. This growth in capacity is achieved from the inside out by basic strength training and conditioning of the nervous system. Improved skill in relaxation for stress reduction is balanced with the ability to ‘psych oneself up’ to meet a challenge. Heart rhythm entrainment is not only healthy, there are myriad productivity benefits. Efficiency and effectiveness of the central nervous system optimizes functioning of the executives’ executive capacity.
