What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is an alternative, non-invasive treatment that helps study information (feedback) from your brainwaves (neuro) and reinforcing change.* The purpose of the brain is to self-regulate and help you calm your nervous system and rid you of any symptoms. Without the ability to self-regulate, problems like anxiety, depression or physical symptoms can occur in the nervous system. Biofeedback is different from Neurofeedback, seeing that it focuses on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

The process of Biofeedback is carried out by learning to control one’s own bodily functions like breath, heart rate or skin temperature. During your session, you’ll be attached to electrical sensors that will help us measure and give information (feedback) about your body (bio). We’ll be able to record all of the information and help you learn to control subtle changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress. This type of treatment is different from Neurofeedback because you’ll learn to control your autonomic functions. When you have more control over your body, you’ll be able to live a better life.*

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) is a Brain Map that helps us measure the electrical patterns in your cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of the EEG data. We’ll then take your EEG data and compare it to a database filled with other people’s EEGs. This will help us reference similar symptoms to what you may be experiencing. When we find specific patterns, they could be the sign of depression, anxiety and others. We will use your QEEG for both treatment planning and progress.

Afterwards, she’ll design a unique, custom Neurofeedback, Advanced Bio-Regulation, and other treatments to help you.*

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?

Treatments for Neurofeedback are helpful because they help individuals learn how to modify their own brainwave activity. When you attend our sessions, we’ll be able to monitor and record your brainwave activity with the help of computers. We’ll be able to train your brain to promote or reduce certain brain wave frequencies. To keep your results consistent, we’ll reward your brain for changing its own activity and help “shape” your brainwave activity for a more desirable, regulated performance. These changes will help reduce your symptoms and help your brain to self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Neurofeedback begins with conducting a QEEG Brain Map, a procedure where EEG activity is recorded and can be analyzed. Your Brain Map results only be studied by Dr. Roseann and she’ll be able to craft a unique treatment plan for your conditions. After you agree upon the right treatments, you can immediately begin your Neurofeedback sessions. The number of session you attend will be based on your treatment plan. Individuals seeking treatment in the Connecticut area usually come from 20 to 100 or more sessions, and around two times per week.* Each session will involve placing sensors on your scalp and ears while we give you brainwave reinforcements like watching a movie.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you live in the Connecticut area, you can call our Ridgefield office to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. We also regularly offer free Neurofeedback information sessions. If you are interested in attending, –click here– to view our schedule.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After we conduct a QEEG, Dr.Roseann will take the time to review your results and craft a treatment plan for you. The plan will revolve around your QEEG results and clinical intake to determine which treatments will help you on the road to health. We proudly serve our patients in Connecticut with these alternative therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor your progress in three ways :

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

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a safe, alternative treatment to medication and it helps children and adults suffering from a variety of conditions. To prove its efficacy, there have been thousands of research studies that have been conducted over the past 40 years. In 2013, the American Academy of Pediatrics rewarded Neurofeedback with a Level 1 effectiveness rating for the treatment of ADHD, tying it with medication.*
