What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-medicated treatment used to study the information (feedback) from your brainwaves (neuro) to introduce change to your system.* Normally the brain will self-regulate which helps calm your nervous system and decrease your symptoms. Without the ability to self-regulate, problems will occur in your central nervous system such as anxiety, depression or even physical symptoms. Biofeedback is different from Neurofeedback because it involves autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

The process of Biofeedback involves learning how to control your bodily functions like breath, heart rate or skin temperature. Treatment will include using electrical sensors to measure and give information (feedback) about your body (bio). This will give us access to information about your subtle changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress. Biofeedback is different from Neurofeedback because you’re learning how to control your autonomic functions. More power over your body can lead to an improved state of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) brain map measures the electrical patterns of your cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is usually a computer analysis of the EEG data. This data is then compared to a database of other results to see what patterns could be a sign of depression, anxiety and others. A QEEG will be used 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.

Nancy L

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.

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!

Michael S

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 process of Neurofeedback will help you learn to modify your brainwave activity. With the help of computers, our practitioners will be able to monitor your brain functioning. This will help us determine if you need to promote or reduce specific brainwave frequencies and then reward your brain for changing its activity. By using this reinforcement technique, we hope to produce new electrical activity in the brain and help shape brainwave activity to a more desirable, regulated performance. This will also help to result in symptom reduction and self-regulation.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Your Neurofeedback treatment will first begin with a QEEG brain map, where your QEEG activity will be recorded and analyzed by Dr. Roseann herself. She will then meet with you, review your brain map and create a custom treatment plan. After your plan has been established, you can choose to start your Neurofeedback sessions immediately if you wish to do so. The number of sessions you attend can range from 20 to 100 or more.* Most of our Gaylordssville clients will come into our office twice a week. Your sessions will include placing sensors on your scalp and ears while you receive brainwave reinforcement.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

The best way to begin Neurofeedback or Biofeedback treatment is to call our office and schedule your QEEG brain map. If you live in Gaylordsville, you can even attend our regularly offered, free Neurofeedback information sessions. If you want to see the schedule for our Neurofeedback sessions –click here–

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After you receive a QEEG, Dr. Roseann will take a look at your results and provide you with a treatment recommendation. Your treatment will be based off your QEEG results and clinical intake. That way you’ll receive an appropriate therapy or therapies to assist you. We proudly serve our Gaylordsville residents with our alternative therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We will monitor your progress in three different ways:

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

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-medicated treatment that can help a variety of conditions that children and adults face. To support its validity, you should know that there are thousands of research studies that have been produced over the past 40 years. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating for the treatment of ADHD, confirming that it has the same effectiveness as medication.*
