What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive method that measures brain waves to produce signals that can be used as feedback to teach self-regulation to the brain. One task for the brain is to calm the nervous system to lessen symptoms, and without self-regulation, problems such as anxiety, depression and certain physical symptoms can develop.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback focuses on autonomic functions and helps you learn to control different bodily functions like heart rate, skin temperature, and breath. The process of Biofeedback deals with using electrical sensors that will receive information (feedback) that describes your body (bio). After holding multiple tests and recording data, the results of Biofeedback should help you learn to control your subtle contractions and relaxation to control stress. If you take control of your body, you will be able to improve your state of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG or quantitative electroencephalogram brain map measures the electrical patterns on the exterior of the scalp that represent cortical activity. This includes patterns of mental strengths and weaknesses otherwise known as the parts of your brain where there is too little or too much activity. Certain patterns may be signs of depression, anxiety and once we find the reason for your struggles, we can create a therapy plan to help you. The EEG data is also compared to a reference database that holds multiple EEG results from other patients. Brain maps can help you on the road to healing.*

Why Dr. Roseann for Neuro & Biofeedback?

At the office of Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge, Ed.D., LPC, BCN, we practice care for children, adolescents, teens, adults and families around all sorts of issues with non-medication therapies. Our staff provides judgement-free support to lessen stress and advocate wellness.

Instead of delegating the task off to someone else, Dr. Roseann interprets the QEEG data herself. With her expertise, analyzing the data herself allows for more accurate test studies. Next, she designs a custom-fitted Neurofeedback, Advanced Bio-Regulation, and other treatments based on the data to better help you.*

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?

The use of Neurofeedback is to help people modify their own brainwave activities to improve their current medical conditions. Using computers, we will monitor brain functions and waves that gives you feedback. Then, we will train your brain functions to increase or reduce different brainwave frequencies, while we reward the brain for changing its activity to improve your health. The strategy that we utilize is based on reinforcements and rewards, we can help you create new electrical activity in your brain. Your brainwave activity will also be “shaped” toward your desired performance. All of these differences for your brainwave activity will lead to reduced symptoms and more self-regulation to the brain.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The process of Neurofeedback starts with a QEEG Brain Map. This means that our practitioners will record statistics through an EEG. Dr.Roseann will then review and analyze your Brain Map, looking for reasons that could be causing your conditions. From this analysis, she will then create a treatment plan for you, and your Neurofeedback sessions will begin. During these sessions, you will have sensors placed on your scalp and ears while you receive brainwave reinforcements from a movie. The number of sessions will always be different from patient to patient, averaging around 20-100 sessions or more.* Most people will come in twice a week.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After your QEEG is finalized, Dr. Roseann will consult with you and figure out which treatment you should use. This will be based on your QEEG results and clinical intake. We care about all of our New Haven residents and we love providing them with non-medicated therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor the progress of your therapy in three ways:

  • Through QEEGs at regular intervals to objectively look at brain functioning.
  • Through data collection at every Neurofeedback session.
  • Through a regular customized symptom checklist progress monitoring.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a non-medicated and safe alternative for many individuals who suffer from certain conditions. There have been thousands of research studies over the past 40 years that hold relevancy to Neurofeedback testing. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave the therapy a Level 1 effectiveness rating for the treatment of ADHD. It tied first place with medication.*
