What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive and safe type of treatment that studies the information of brainwaves and reinforces any changes.* The brain relaxes the nervous system to reduce identified symptoms. Central nervous problems such as anxiety, depression and even physical symptoms can arise without this self-regulation. Biofeedback is different than Neurofeedback because it is based on autonomic functions.  

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the act of controlling body functions that normally we aren’t even aware of such as breathing, skin temperature, and heart rate. Our practitioners hook patients up to electrical sensors that ascertain information about the body through measurements.  These measurements inform the patient how to control slight adjustments in behavior such as de-stressing and relaxing tense muscles. Biofeedback differs from neurofeedback in that it is about manually manipulation ones autonomic function. *

What is QEEG?

A QEEG is a brain mapping technology that measures the surface of the scalp for electrical patterns. These patterns explain activity in the cortex. A quantitative electroencephalogram is a computer breakdown of the data. This EEG information is cross-referenced with a database of standards set by many other EEGS. Certain patterns can indicate anxiety, depression among many other disorders. The QEEG can be used as a guide for treatment planning as well as proof of 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.

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 helps a person change their personal brainwave activity. With the use of computers, we observe brain function and show the results to the patient. We then teach the client to adjust their brain wave frequencies. By rewarding this behavior, the brain learns to make different, more appropriate patterns. Through this positive reinforcement, we create new electrical activity to shape a better brain performance. This change in brain activity reduces symptoms as your brain begins to self-regulate. *

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

To begin, we record and analyze your brain activity by conducting a QEEG brain map. Dr. Roseann will then analyze your brain map and create a comprehensive treatment plan. Once a plan has been designed, you can being the Neurofeedback sessions. In these sessions, our experienced practitioners will place sensors on the scalp and ears. Then the patient will watch a movie while receiving brain way reinforcement. The amount of sessions needed will vary for each person, but they range from 20 to 100+ sessions. * The majority of Guilford patients come twice a week.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

  • We collect various data at every Neurofeedback session.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a non-medication, drug free, and safe choice for many conditions that affect children and adults alike. Thousands of studies conducted throughout the last 40 years support the efficiency of this therapy. Neurofeedback received a level 1 in efficiency in the treatment of ADHD from the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2013- this is the same level rating as medication. *
