What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a process of understanding each individuals unique neurological activity. This is done in a safe, non-invasive method. Each of our patients can begin to understand how their brain activity affects their health, and take steps toward controlling this behavior using rewards and reinforcement. Without self regulation, a patient may never get over the symptoms associated with anxiety, depression and other disorders.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback slightly. With Biofeedback, we seek to monitor the autonomic biological activities of each patient such as breathing, heart rate and temperature. Using sensors, we can understand how the processes happen in each of our patients, as well as how to change them subtly. After a patient has more control over these autonomic processes, they can reduce stress and improve their health.

What is QEEG?

A QEEG is a quantitative representation of EEG results. An EEG shows neocortical activity of the brain through electrical patterns in neurons. Using monitors on a patient’s scalp, their neurological activity can be monitored and recorded. Once recorded, this data can be referenced and compared. Specific QEEG patterns can reflect certain disorders including depression, anxiety and others. The QEEG is used both to diagnose certain disorders, and to understand how treatment methods are working.

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 is a non-invasive strategy used to understand and modify neurological activity/ Through the use of sensors, brain functioning is mapped out to each patient. By using reinforcement and rewards, each patient can begin to promote healthy brain captivity, or diminish unwanted activity. The brain can then be “shaped” toward appropriate behavior. This strategy is used to change behavior and alleviate the symptoms caused by certain disorders. When patients are able to self regulate their brain activity, they are able to reach healthy states without the use of potentially harmful medications.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The Neurofeedback process is started by understanding brain activity through a QEEG. The QEEG is a visual representation of the electrical activity of the brain. Dr. Roseann reviews the QEEG data and determines which brain activity may need to be changed, and the best strategies for changing this behavior. After Dr. Roseann has designed a course for treatment, you can then begin the Neurofeedback sessions. While every patient is different, most patients require 20-100 sessions. For most of our Hamden patients, two sessions per week is typical. This may seem overwhelming, although the process is quite easy. Most sessions require easy actions, such as watching a movie, with sensors attached to monitor behavior.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you live in Hamden, simply call the office to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. We also regularly offer free Neurofeedback information sessions – Click Here – for more information.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After a QEEG, Dr. Roseann will sit down with you and review your results and make treatment recommendations. Based on your QEEG results and clinical intake, she will determine what therapy or therapies is/are best. We’re proud to offer safe therapy techniques to our Hamden patients.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor 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, drug-free treatment alternative for many conditions affecting children and adults. There have been thousands of research studies supporting its efficacy during the past 40 plus years. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating in the treatment of ADHD, which is the same effectiveness as medication.*
