What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive method for treatment used to study and alter the neurological activity of each patient’s brain. With this method, our patients can learn how their brain functions and start to self-regulate their behavior. Through Neurofeedback a patient can start to diminish symptoms while promoting healthy neurological activity. Without this regulation, patients may be stuck with the symptoms associated with disorders such as anxiety, depression and others.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a therapy option used to understand autonomic biological processes of the body such as breathing rate, heart rate and skin temperature. Each patient is connected to sensors in order to monitor these biological functions. Our patients can then begin to use biological feedback to better control these processes. Controlling these can drastically lower stress and improve health for patients. Biofeeback differs from Neurofeedback in that biological feedback is centered around these processes instead of neurological processes.

What is QEEG?

QEEG is a method of quantifying an electroencephalogram. The electroencephalogram is used to measure the electrical activity of neocortical areas of the brain. This neuronal activity is measured through the use of monitors placed on ones scalp. Once the data is collected, it can then be referenced to understand how a patient’s brain functions. Certain QEEG results may show signs of disorders including depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and others. A QEEG can be used for diagnosing patients and understanding the results of various therapies.

Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge, Ed.D., LPC, BCN, and her team work, work with individuals and families of all ages with various health issues. Our professional staff offers support and non-judgmental care to help alleviate stress and promote health solutions.

Each QEEG analysis is performed personally by Dr. Roseann. She offers custom therapy options including Neurofeedback and Biofeedback techniques based on your results. Regardless of your heath concerns, Dr. Roseann offers safe treatment options for each of her patients throughout the Cross River area.

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 is a process of helping an individual modify their neurological behavior. Using monitors, neocortical functions can be shown to each patient. Using feedback methods, appropriate neuronal activity can be established for each of our clients. By using reinforcement and rewards, each new brain activity is “shaped” to improve a patient’s health. Symptoms can be reduced, or completely resolved, depending on condition and successful implementation of appropriate behavior.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

To start the process, we normally perform a QEEG to understand each patients neurological activity. Dr. Roseann, upon reviewing the QEEG results, generates a treatment plan based on your specifications and health needs. We can then begin neurofeedback based on your needs. This process involves sensors being placed on the patient during basic actions, such as watching a movie.Although every patient is different, typically patients require 20-100 sessions at two sessions a week.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you are living in the Cross River area, you can simply call our office to schedule your QEEG brain map. We also offer free Neurofeedback information sessions, check our event schedule – Here – to see when.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After the QEEG is completed, Dr. Roseann will study your results and clinical intake and give you a recommendation on what treatments you will need. We care about the health of our Cross River patients and proudly provide non-invasive therapy.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three 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

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is proven to a safe and alternative treatment for conditions that affect children and adults. There are thousands of researched studies conducted over the past 40 years. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating for the treatment of ADHD, rating the same as medication.*
