What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-invasive treatment that involves studying the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and reinforcing changes based on that information.* The brain can self-regulate to relax the nervous system and relieve negative symptoms. Without this self-regulation, anxiety, depression, physical symptoms, and other central nervous issues can crop up. Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback as it focuses on autonomic functions instead of bodily functions.

What is Biofeedback?

One can learn to control their breath, heart rate, skin temperature, or other bodily functions through biofeedback. Biofeedback differs from neurofeedback as it controls one’s autonomic functions rather than brain waves. Patients are connected to electrical sensors that measure and give information (feedback) about the body (bio). The patient can learn to control subtle changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress by studying recorded results. Power over one’s body can lead to an improvement of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) brain map measures the electrical patterns on the very surface of the scalp that reflect cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of the EEG data. Dr. Roseann then compares the EEG data to a reference database of a standard set comprised of other EEGs. Through the analysis of patterns, symptoms of depression, anxiety and illnesses can become apparent. QEEGs can be used both for treatment planning and progress.*

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?

People can learn how to modify their own brainwave activity using neurofeedback. Through the use of computers, we can monitor brain functions. This technology allows us to show feedback to the client in real time. Our patients can learn to boost or reduce different brainwave frequencies, rewarding the brain for changing its own activity in order to produce more appropriate patterns. This reinforcement process results in the production of new electrical activity in the brain, and the brainwave activity is “shaped” into a more desirable, more regulated performance. The brain learns to self-regulate, resulting in a reduction of symptoms.* How Do I know which therapy I need?

 

Dr. Roseann will review your QEEG results with you in person. She will make treatment recommendations based on your clinical intake and QEEG results. Following this, Dr. Roseann will suggest the most appropriate therapies. We proudly serve Chappaqua residents with these alternative therapies.

native therapies.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step of the neurofeedback involves a procedure during which your EEG activity is recorded and statistically analyzed. This is called a QEEG Brain Map. Following this, Dr. Roseann will meet with you to review your brain map and design a treatment plan. You can begin your Neurofeedback sessions as soon as a protocol has been established. During your sessions, the practitioner will place sensors on the scalp and ears. You will receive brainwave reinforcement as you watch a movie. The length of treatment (number of sessions required) varies based on each individual. The range generally falls between 20 to 100 or more sessions.*  Most Chappaqua-area patients visit our office for two appointments per week.
