What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a special kind of therapy that emphasizes the study of brainwaves. The objective is to reinforce a new and desired change into these brainwaves. Neurofeedback is safe and effective, providing the Greenwich area with non-invasive treatments methods. It addresses issues of both body and mind. The name comes from the study of information (feedback) in regards to brainwaves (neuro). This method focuses on self-regulating the brain, as it can calm the nervous system and diminish effects of a condition. Without this self-regulation and control, symptoms can overpower the system and problems can occur.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a form of therapy that emphasizes studying both the mind and body. It focuses on studying a particular process of body parts and learning to control certain functions, such as breathing, skin temperature, and heart rate. Biofeedback involves measuring patients’ bodies (bio) with harmless connected sensors to gather information (feedback). The more information we are able to gather, the more we can help our Greenwich patients. We measure subtle changes that happen by reducing stress and relaxing muscles. This foundation of power over your body is a beneficial way to improve a balanced lifestyle.*

What is QEEG?

Quantitative Electroencephalogram, otherwise known as QEEG, is map of the brain. It measures certain electrical patterns on the surface of the scalp to portray accurate cortical activity. EEG data is used as a reference database to compare to a standard. With a computer analysis of this EEG data, we can gather specific and quantitative EEG information. By comparing and contrasting different stats, we can recognize similar patterns in signs of anxiety, depression, and various conditions. QEEGs are helpful in planning treatments for our Greenwich patients.*

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 aims to help individuals obtain better control of their personal brainwave activity. We utilize the power of computers to monitor certain functions. We share this live feedback with the patient and help them begin the process to improving their condition. Learning to control brainwaves is a matter of reducing or encouraging certain activities and rewarding the brain for this change. By following this pattern, we are able to produce more of the desired cranial patterns. New electrical activity is established and a more consistent production is made in the brain. The frequencies are then able to be controlled better and self-regulation is in the hands of the patient.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Neurofeedback therapy starts with a brain map (QEEG). This brain map analyzes a patient’s EEG activity, which data is then analyzed personally by Dr. Roseann. She will review the brain map and corresponding analytics with you. Afterwards, a customized treatment plan is created and regulation is discussed. The number of sessions varies per condition, ranging from 20 to 100 to more sessions.* On average, Greenwich patients visit our office two times per week. A typical session involves connecting to sensors on the ears and scalp and monitoring the certain brainwaves.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

The process beings by scheduling a QEEG brain map. This helps us know where we can best help you on your road to healthy living. For more information on Neurofeedback sessions, click here.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

Each therapy and method is matched to meet your specific needs. Dr. Roseann interprets all of the QEEG data herself to help you obtain the most accurate results. After analyzing, she will discuss the results with you and provide an outlined plan for treatment.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

Progress is monitored in three primary ways:

  • Scheduled QEEGS on certain intervals
  • Collecting data and information from each session
  • Checklist of symptoms to monitor progress

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback and Biofeedback are safe therapy alternatives to potentially harmful treatment methods. Both therapy techniques alleviate symptoms for a variety of conditions. In the past 40 years, numerous studies have been performed to provide support for these methods. The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating in 2013 for its impact on ADHD, which is the same level of effectiveness as medication.*
