What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe and non-invasive treatment option that involves using maps of brainwaves (neuro) to collect information (feedback) to promote and reinforce positive brain activity.* When the brain learns to self-regulate, symptoms can be greatly reduced as the nervous system begins to calm. Without that proper regulation, a variety of central nervous problems can occur, such as anxiety, depression, or even physical symptoms. Differing from Neurofeedback, Biofeedback focuses instead on targeting specific autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

A technique involving the control of a person’s bodily functions, Biofeedback is a form of therapy that attempts to regulate things like breath, heart rate, and skin temperature. This therapy includes monitoring the body (bio) using electrical sensors and utilizing the information (feedback) to record and study the changes in the brain activity. Unlike Neurofeedback, Biofeedback is focused on using the body’s autonomic functions to foster greater control over a patient’s body, which can lead to improvement in overall health.*

What is QEEG?

Essentially a map of the brain’s electrical patterns, a QEEG, or quantitative electroencephalogram, uses sensors on the surface of the scalp to record cortical activity. The process of a quantitative EEG involves computer analyzing EEG data and comparing your own data against a standard data set within a reference database of other EEGs. Anxiety, depression, and many other disorders can all be indicated through the use of these maps. Your own QEEG data would be utilized for both 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.

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 works by training your brain to self-regulate brainwave activities. As we monitor the functions of the brain through the use of computers, we provide live feedback to all of our clients. We use that analyzed feedback to reward the brain and then help promote or reduce specific brainwave frequencies to train the brain to self-monitor and thus exhibit more appropriate patterns. As they are reinforced, new electrical activity is created in the brain and the brainwave activity is “shaped” into more regulated and desirable performance. As the brain begins to learn how to self-regulate, the changes in activity can often lead to a reduction in symptoms.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

We would start the process by conducting a QEEG Brain, a safe procedure utilized for recording and statistically analyzing your EEG activity. Dr. Roseann would then meet with you to review your brain map together and discuss what treatment plan would work best. As soon as that treatment protocol is developed, you can begin your Neurofeedback sessions immediately. Every individual is different and the recommended number of sessions can often range between 20 to over 100 sessions.* For most of our patients in the Kent area, visits to our office twice a week are typically standard to provide continued brainwave reinforcement as you attend each session. We use sensors on the scalp and ears to monitor your brain’s activities as you watch a movie.

From your very first meeting onward, Dr. Roseann will guide you through each step in the process. After your initial QEEG results are reviewed, we will discuss further recommendations and appropriate treatments. Dr. Roseann designs customized treatments personally suited for each of patients. No one solution applies to every situation, so an in-depth review of the test results is necessary for every patient. Based on the data provided by your clinical intake and QEEG results, we will determine the best therapy or therapies for your situation. We are proud to offer these alternative therapies and services to residents of Kent, CT.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

There are three specific ways we monitor progress:

  • Through regularly and objectively studying brain functions using QEEGs.
  • Through the use of Neurofeedback sessions and their data.
  • Through regular customized symptom checklist progress monitoring.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback might be the perfect solution for you if you are looking for a drug-free and safe alternative therapy for children and adults afflicted by a wide variety of conditions. For over forty years, researchers have published studies supporting the efficacy of this type of treatment, and The American Academy of Pediatrics has rated its use as an ADHD therapy at Level 1, the same effectiveness as standard medication.*
