What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-medicated, secure form of treatment that is completed by studying the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and reinforcing change.* Normally the brain will self-regulate itself, helping to diminish any symptoms of illnesses. Without being able to self-regulate, the central nervous system will cause problems like anxiety, depression and even physical symptoms. Biofeedback is different from Neurofeedback because it solely focuses on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the process of gaining the ability to control your bodily functions like breath, heart rate or skin temperature. During your sessions, we’ll attach electrical sensors to you to measure and give information (feedback) about your body (bio). By studying your brain activity, we can record your data and help you learn to control subtle changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress. Biofeedback is different from Neurofeedback because it deals with controlling your autonomic functions. When you can have power over your body, you’ll be able to live an improved state of health.*

What is QEEG?

A quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) is a brain map that measures the electrical patterns of your cortical activity which exist on the very surface of your scalp. A quantitative QEEG is a computer analysis of the EEG data. This data is then compared to a reference database that consists of a standard set of other people’s EEGs. This will help us identify specific patterns that have been shown to be signs of depression, anxiety and many others. We’ll also use your QEEG results to create a treatment plan and document your 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.

Jennifer B

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.

Courtney J

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.

Victoria T

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?

The treatment of Neurofeedback involves helping a person learn how to modify their own brainwave activity. When you come to our Ridgefield office to have Neurofeedback sessions, we’ll be able to help you with the use of a computer. Using a computer lets us monitor and record your brain functions and we’ll be able to show you what your results look like. From there, we can train you to promote or reduce different brain wave frequencies, and we can reward your brain for changing its own activity and produce more appropriate patterns. By reinforcement, we mean that we want your brain to create new electrical activity that will help “shape” you toward a more desirable, regulated performance. These changes will help you reduce your symptoms and help your brain self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

For our Dutchess County patients, Neurofeedback treatments first begin with a QEEG Brain Map. This is a procedure where EEG activity is recorded and analyzed. Afterwards you’ll meet with Dr. Roseann and review your brain map and create a treatment plan. Once this treatment plan is agreed upon, you can immediately begin your Neurofeedback sessions if you wish. Your number of sessions will be dependent on your treatment plan, but they can range from 20 to 100 or more sessions.* Individuals living in Dutchess County will usually come into the office two times per week. The sessions involve placing sensors on your scalp and ears while you receive brainwave reinforcement from watching a movie.

If you are living in Dutchess County, feel free to call our Ridgefield office to schedule your QEEG Brain Map or for any questions you may have. We also regularly offer free Neurofeedback information sessions. To view our complete schedule, –click here–

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After you receive a QEEG Brain Map, Dr. Roseann will take a look at your results and review them with you. She’ll craft a treatment plan based on your QEEG results and current clinical intake to provide you with the therapy or therapies that best suit your conditions. We proudly serve Dutchess County residents with these alternative therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor your progress in three different ways:

  • Through QEEGs at regular intervals to objectively take a look at your 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 supported by research. To prove that it is a safe alternative to medication for children and adults, there’s 40 years of research available. In all those years, there’s been thousands of research studies to prove the efficacy of Neurofeedback. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating for the treatment of ADHD, which is the same effectiveness as medication.*
