What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback treatment is very safe, and is completely non-invasive. During the process, we study the information (feedback) generated by the patients brainwaves (Neuro). In doing so we are able to identify abnormalities in the brains electrical patterns, and encourage positive changes to promote a reduction in symptoms. This feedback is representative of the brains nervous system regulation, and specific patterns can indicate symptoms such as anxiety, and depression. Biofeedback is based on autonomic functions whereas Neurofeedback is based on brain activity.

What is Biofeedback?

Factors including heart rate, breath, skin temp, and others are able to be measure by use of biofeedback. Biofeedback is able to detect how a patients autonomic body process systems operate. We hook up sensors to the patient and the sensors provide feedback (information) related to their body (bio) functions. After collecting this data over a period of time it can offer useful insights as to why your body is afflicted with specific symptoms such as stress or anxiety.*

What is QEEG?

A machine known as a quantitative electroencephalogram or QEEG allows us to measure electrical patterns in the brain through sensors placed on the scalp. These sensors allow us to see cortical activity. Using this data collected by the QEEG, Dr. Roseann is able to compare the data to other patients within a database to detect abnormalities. This process is known as a quantitative EEG. This non-invasive technique has helped patients identify and address underlying symptoms of ADD, ADHD, stress, and others.

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?

We teach our patients to modify their own brainwave activity. Using positive reinforcement techniques we encourage positive processes in the body, and beneficial brainwave patterns. To accomplish this task we use highly advanced computers to produce a live feedback image so patients can watch their own brain wave patterns in real time. After studying these patterns for some time, we are able to detect abnormalities, and work with the patient to encourage positive patterns that lessen symptoms resulting from these anomalies.

Our treatments encourage the development of positive electrical patterns in the patients brain. State of the art computer technologies grant us the ability to share patient brainwave patterns with the patient in real time. When patterns appear that result in negative symptoms, we work to change those patterns to diminish the symptoms. This process is non-invasive, these improved patterns can help patients achieve improved performance, and help to subdue troublesome symptoms. Over time, the brain can learn to soften symptoms and regulate its self.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The QEEG Brain Map is the first step of the treatment process. In developing a QEEG Brain Map we are able to better understand the brains electrical patterns associated with symptoms and how the patients brain functions. This step offers us great insight as to how we can best treat the patient. Dr. Roseann herself will personally analyze this data and review the information. Once she has developed a treatment schedule the patient will meet with Dr. Roseann to discuss the additional steps required for treatment.* Depending on the patients needs the number of sessions to achieve desired results can vary. Patients can require anywhere from twenty to one hundred sessions, or more. Patients in the greater Naugatuck area usually visit Dr. Roseanns clinic for treatment one to two times per week.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you live in the greater Naugatuck area, please 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?

From the QEEG data, Dr. Roseann will develop a treatment plan. Once she has reviewed the data, each patient meets with Dr. Roseann to discuss the customized treatment strategy in depth and develop a schedule. We proudly serve Naugatuck residents with these alternative therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three ways :

  • Watch brain activity
  • Keep track of symptoms with a personalized symptom checklist
  • Keep a thorough record of data collected in each session

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a drug-free treatment alternative for conditions that affect both children and adults. This treatment is completely safe.* Over the past 40 plus years, there have been thousands of research studies supporting its efficacy. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave Neurofeedback a Level 1 effectiveness rating in the treatment of ADHD, which is the same effectiveness as medication.
