What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of treatment that does not involve medication and is safe. It entails studying the information (feedback) of the patients brain waves (neuro) and rewarding the change, thereby reinforcing the behavior. * The brain calms itself and the central nervous system by self-regulation, which diminishes undesirable symptoms. Without this control, or self-regulation, issues can occur such as depression and anxiety along with other various physical symptoms. Neurofeedback and Biofeedback are different in that Neurofeedback focuses on autonomic function.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is when one learns to control seemingly automatic functions like heart rate, breath, and skin temperature. At our Cheshire office, we place electrical sensors on the patient which measure information (feedback) about the body (bio). We then record this feedback and adapt to control the slight changes such as muscle relaxation and destressing. Neurofeedback and Biofeedback are different in that Neurofeedback focuses on autonomic function. This learned control over ones body function can lead to a drastic improvement of health, and reduces symptoms. *

What is QEEG?

A brain map that measures electrical patterns on the surface of the scalp is called a quantitative electroencephalogram, or a QEEG. The QEEG also measures cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a computer breakdown of the information obtained by the EEG.  The EEG data is then cross-referenced with a database of other individuals EEG data. Certain patterns shown on the QEEG can indicate anxiety, depression and much more. The QEEG is used both for treatment planning and tracking the patients progress.* We offer this service at our Cheshire, CT location, and it is the first step in your treatment.

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.

Michael B

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 is when a person learns how to change their own brainwave activity to reduce undesirable symptoms. With the use of computers, we closely watch the brain function to show the live feedback to the client. We essentially train the brain to encourage more appropriate patterns, or brain wave frequencies. We then reward the brain for altering its activity. This causes new electrical activity to be produced in the patient, shaping a more desirable and regulated performance. The changes reduce the undesirable symptoms as the brain self-regulates. *

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step entails the patients getting a QEEG Brain Map. This is where the EEG is first recorded and then analyzed using statistics. The patient meets with Dr. Roseann to discuss your brain map and design a treatment. After this plan has been created, you can begin Neurofeedback sessions. The amount of sessions needed will vary between individuals- anywhere from 20-100 or more sessions. * Most individuals in Cheshire attend twice a week. The session entails placing sensors on the scalp and ears and receiving brainwave reinforcement while you watch a film.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a non-medication, safe, drug-free treatment alternative for several conditions affecting both adults and children alike. There have been many studies supporting this therapies efficiency over the past 40 years. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating in the treatment of ADHD, which is the same effectiveness as medication.*
