What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment used to study the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and used to reinforce change in your brainwave activity. Typically, the brain will self-regulate to calm your nervous system and diminish any symptoms you are feeling or experiencing. If you don’t have self-regulation, the central nervous system will cause problems like anxiety, depression and even physical symptoms. Biofeedback is a similar treatment form, but it focuses more on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the method of learning how to control your bodily functions like breath, heart rate or skin temperature. During your treatments, we’ll attach electrical sensors that measure and give information (feedback) about your body (bio). We’ll be able to record your data and help you learn to control subtle changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress. Compared to Neurofeedback, you’re controlling your autonomic functions. When you have more power over your body, you’ll be able to have an improved state of mental health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) is a brain map that measures electrical patterns in your cortical activity. These quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of EEG data. We’ll then take the EEG data and compare it to a reference database that consists of a standard set of other people’s EEG results. By comparing multiple sets of data, we’ll be able to offer you a more accurate interpretation. From there, we’ll be able to determine signs of depression, anxiety and others conditions. Your QEEG data will be used for both your treatment plan and your progress to better health.*

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.

Victoria T

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?

The purpose of Neurofeedback is to help individuals suffering from certain conditions learn to modify their own brainwave activity. By using computers, we’ll be able to monitor your brain functions and show you how you are currently functioning. During Neurofeedback sessions, we can train you to promote or reduce certain brain wave frequencies. To keep your brainwave activity consistent we’ll help you reward your brain for changing its activity to keep you producing more appropriate patterns. By reinforcing your habits, we’ll be able to create new electrical activity in your brain to help “shape” your activity toward a more desirable, regulated performance. Changes like these will result in symptom reduction and help your brain self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Even before we begin your Neurofeedback sessions, we first have to conduct a QEEG Brain Map. This is a procedure that deals with recording your brain functions in a way that we can analyze them. You’ll then meet with Dr.Roseann who will review your Brain Map and create a treatment plan for you. If you wish, we can immediately begin your Neurofeedback sessions after your review. The number of sessions you attend will be based on your plan and usually can range from 20 to 100 or more sessions.* Most individuals in the Litchfield County area will come in two times per week. When you attend your session, it will involve placing sensors on your scalp and ears and by giving you reinforcements like watching a movie.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you’re living in the Litchfield County area, you can give our Ridgefield office a call to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. You can also attend our regularly held Neurofeedback sessions. For more information on our sessions –click here–

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After conducting a QEEG, Dr. Roseann will take a look at your results and provide you with treatment recommendations. These recommendations will be based on your QEEG and current clinical intake. We proudly serve our Litchfield County residents with these alternative therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

Progress is monitored in three primary ways:

  • QEEGs performed at scheduled intervals to observe brain functioning.
  • Data and information collected from every session.
  • Customized symptom checklist designed for monitored progress.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Yes, Neurofeedback is supported by research that defends this treatment as an alternative, drug-tree procedure for certain conditions for both children and adults. Thousands of research studies have been conducted to prove the efficacy of Neurofeedback over the past 40 years. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating for the treatment of ADHD, tying with medication.*
