What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a reliable, non-invasive form of treatment used to understand and change a patient’s neurological behavior. This behavior may be the underlying cause of various conditions. The brain activity is mapped out to the patient so they can take steps towards self regulating the behavior. Changing unwanted behavior will allow our patients to diminish the symptoms associated with their various conditions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a process of understanding the autonomic biological functions of our patient’s bodies. These include breathing, heart rate and skin temperature. These autonomic processes are monitored for the patient to understand how to better control them. Once a patient can self regulate these biological functions better, they can help diminish their symptoms. Controlling these processes has shown to alleviate stress and provide a healthy alternative to invasive therapies.

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) is a visual representation of an EEG scan. These scans show the cortical activity of the brain. Mostly, the measure of the electrical activity of various neurons in the neocortical areas. Once the QEEG data is taken, Dr. Roseann can reference the data and use it to establish a baseline for treatment. The QEEG data is used both to establish grounds for treatment, and also to understand how effective treatment strategies are.

My husband and I have two special needs children and are very involved in their education. We only use the best providers and Dr. Roseann is simply the best. From evaluations to neurofeedback to parent coaching, she has been there for my family. She is so knowledgeable and experienced in so many areas and we know that we can always run anything by her.  One of our children has Autism and PANS with significant communication and behavioral issues and Dr. Roseann and her staff have always given us the most loving care and work to support his sensory needs. I can’t recommend Dr. Roseann and Associates more highly.

Dr. Roseann literally saved my daughter’s life. Through testing, her team identified that she had Dyslexia and get her the right supports at school. The care that she and we received from the staff and her therapist over the years has been a lifeline.

The 360 Reboot program turned my daughter’s life around. She had been plagued with anxiety her whole life and never responded to regular talk therapy. With intensive neurofeedback, biofeedback, psychotherapy, and parent coaching, she was able to break the anxiety cycle. She is a happy young adult and we couldn’t be prouder of her and more grateful for the staff at Dr. Roseann and Associates.

As an educator myself, I had seen several of my students make positive and often dramatic changes after going to Dr. Roseann’s center. When my son started having problems at school paying attention, I knew that my husband and I wanted Dr. Roseann’s experienced care. She was spot on in diagnosing the issues with the brain map and walked us through the step by step process of what we needed to do. Our son and family have benefited so much from the center’s help. He never needed medication and with neurofeedback and dietary changes, he became the best person he could be. It has been several years and my son is now thriving in college.

As a therapist myself, I knew that Dr. Roseann is one of the top mental health experts on PANS/PANDAS and Lyme Disease. So when I became sick, she was the first person I called for help. She was able to connect me with the right Lyme medical experts so I could get treatment. I was very lucky that the biofeedback and BRT at the center started helping my headaches and anxiety immediately. I am about 90 percent better and I wouldn’t be feeling so great if it weren't for Dr. Roseann.

After my son with ADHD and anxiety had terrible reactions to medications, we went to Dr. Roseann on the recommendation of our pediatrician. She helped us to understand why his brain and body was reacting to medication and why he was experiencing anxiety, focus, and impulse control issues. After 10 years of many therapists and psychiatrists, we finally saw some major change in on our son with neurofeedback, BRT, and counseling. His therapist helped him and us improve his executive functioning and alertness. It was scary to see him suffer so much on ADHS medications and I am so glad he is happy and our home life isn’t so stressful.

As a family highly impacted by the 12-14 tragedy in Sandy Hook, Dr. Roseann and staff has given us help over the years. From learning how to use EFT/Tapping to manage our anxiety to neurofeedback, everyone in our family has been helped. We learned so much about how trauma impacts the brain and the neuroscience part of stress, anxiety, and trauma. When confronted with such stress, you can’t imagine things will get better, but they did with their help.

As a physician, I knew exactly where to take my son for the best possible mental health care. My son was so anxious from an undiagnosed learning disability and a poor school program. Dr. Roseann evaluated my son and gave us recommendations that were so specific, we could after many years of pushing and prodding the school, finally get him the right program at school. Her center was able to provide all the therapies he needed to improve his cognitive processing speed and reduce anxiety with the highest level of clinical care.

Our adult daughter had treatment resistant depression and was suffering when we came to Dr. Roseann’s center. Even though other therapists had turned us away, her team supported our daughter in a way that we had never experienced. With intensive counseling and neurofeedback, she was able to not be anxious for the first time in her life and her depression stopped.

Our time with Dr. Roseann and her staff during our 360 Reboot intensive therapies program was special. Our little guy gained so many skills in a short time and we received so much education about his needs and what we needed to do along the developmental spectrum to keep him growing in the right direction. We wish we had found her center sooner!

Dr. Roseann treated my ADHD when I was a teenager after my parents tried medications for years on me. I hated every minute of those medications and I felt so irritated all the time. After about 18 sessions, it was like my brain shifted and I woke up from a fog. It has been 6 years since I finished neurofeedback and my attention is awesome!

You have accomplished wonders for my grandson. He is now the child he was always meant to be. Your program was the best investment in his life. I worked with so many young college students who struggled with ADHD and I did not want to see that happen to him. I am so happy that he has been able to benefit from the program. I tell everyone with a child who has attention issues that your program works wonders.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback works by helping patients modify their own brainwave activity. We begin by using a computer that will help monitor brain functions and waves that give feedback to our clients. Then, we provide our patients with methods that help them increase and reduce different brainwave frequencies. While they are retraining the brain, we also reward the brain for changing its activity. Using a strategy that consists of reinforcement and rewards, helps to produce new electrical activity and brainwave activity that will help “shape” the desired result. All of these efforts work to reduce symptoms and create a more self-regulated brain.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

To begin your Neurofeedback therapy, we first produce a QEEG Brain Map. This means that we record and analyze statistics from your EEG. Next, Dr.Roseann will review your brain map and show you which portions are causing your condition. She will also put together a treatment plan, and begin your Neurofeedback sessions immediately. These sessions consist of using sensors that are placed on your scalp and ears that will send out brainwave reinforcements while you watch a movie. The number of sessions is dependent on the patient, but they usually range from 20-100 sessions or more.* Most people will come into the office twice a week.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you reside in the Brewster area, please call our office to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. We also offer free Neurofeedback information sessions – Click Here – for learn more.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After we conduct the QEEG, Dr. Roseann will take a look at your results and provide you with recommendations for treatments based on her years of experience. We care about our Brewster, NY patients and we love to provide them with our non-medicated therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress three different ways :

  • Through QEEGs at regular intervals to objectively look at brain functioning.
  • Through data collection at every Neurofeedback session.
  • Through a regular customized symptom checklist progress monitoring.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Yes, Neurofeedback is a non-invasive and research-based alternative for conditions that affect people of all ages. There have been thousands of research studies over the past 40 years that prove its reliability. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave Neurofeedback a Level 1 effectiveness in the treatment of ADHD. The therapy also tied first place with medication.*
