What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback provides a safe, non-invasive option for treatment through studying the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and reinforcing the change.* The brain is able to self-regulate and calm the nervous system so that symptoms are diminished. Absence of this self-regulation can cause central nervous problems to arise including anxiety, depression, and even physical symptoms. Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback due to its focus on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

The process of Biofeedback consists of an individual learning to control bodily functions such as breath, heart rate, or skin temperature. We are able to measure and give information (feedback) about the body (bio) by connecting our patients to electrical sensors. By doing this, you can record and learn to control subtle changes like muscle relaxation or stress reduction. It is different from Neurofeedback because it controls the individual’s autonomic functions. One can improve their health by having power over their body.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG, quantitative electroencephalogram, brain map provides measurements of electrical patterns on the very surface of the scalp that represent cortical activity. EEG data is analyzed on the computer through a quantitative EEG. This EEG data is compared to other people’s EEG from a reference database. Specific patterns can signal depression, anxiety and many other issues. The QEEG is used for treatment planning as well as 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 consists of teaching an individual how to modify their own brainwave activity. By utilizing computers, we can monitor brain functioning and share that live feedback with our clients in Hartford County. We train them to increase or reduce various brain wave frequencies, then we reward the brain for changing its activity by producing more suitable patterns. This reinforcement causes new electrical activity to be produced in the brain, shaping the brainwave activity in a more desirable and regulated performance. As a result of these changes, symptom reduction occurs as the brain learns to self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

In the beginning we conduct a QEEG Brain Map; during this procedure, EEG activity is recorded and statistically analyzed. Dr. Roseann will then meet with you to review your brain map and make a treatment plan. Once a protocol is designed, you will immediately be able to begin your Neurofeedback sessions.  The number of sessions required differ depending on the individual, but vary from 20 to 100 or more sessions.* Most of our patients in Hartford County come in two times per week. During the session, we place sensors on the scalp and ears and get brainwave reinforcement while you’re watching a movie.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

We take pride in providing Hartford County residents with these alternative therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three ways: 

  • Through QEEGs at regular intervals to objectively observe your brain functioning.
  • Through collecting data at every Neurofeedback session.
  • Through regular monitoring customized symptom checklist progress.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a safe, drug-free treatment alternative for various conditions that impact children and adults throughout Hartford County. Thousands of research studies have supported its success over 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 just as effective as medication.*
