What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment used to study the information (or feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and reinforce change and teach self-regulation of brain function.* Without self-regulation, central nervous problems can occur also causing anxiety, depression and other physical symptoms. Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback but it differs by concentrating on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback deals with electronically monitoring normal automatic bodily functions like breath, heart rate or skin temperature and training them. Patients are connected to an electrical sensor that provides information (feedback) to the body (bio). This way you can learn to control small changes like relaxing muscles or reducing stress. Instead of concentrating on autonomic functions like neurofeedback, biofeedback is in control of your autonomic functions. If you are able to take control of your body, you will be in an improved state of health*

What is QEEG?

QEEG stands for quantitative electroencephalogram. This is a measurement of electrical patterns on the surface of the scalp that follow brainwaves otherwise known as cortical electrical activity. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of an EEG. Data taken from the EEG is compared to a reference database consisting of a number of EEGs associated with other people. Distinct patterns can be a sign of depression, anxiety, and many others. The QEEG is used for treatment planning and progress.*

Why Dr. Roseann for Neuro & Biofeedback?

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 is the process of helping someone modify their own brainwave activity. This is done by the use of computers where we can record brain functions and show live feedback to the client. We can help them promote or reduce different brainwave frequencies thus rewarding the brain for changing activity and producing successful patterns. By reinforcing this action, we are actually producing new electrical activity and “shaping” brainwave activity toward a more regulated and desired performance. Making changes like these lead to symptom reduction, and the brain learns to self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Our neurofeedback process begins with performing a QEEG brain map, a procedure where we record and analyze EEG activity. You will then meet with Dr. Roseann to look over your brain map and configure a treatment plan. Once this has been designed, you can start your Neurofeedback sessions immediately. These treatments involve having sensors placed on your scalp and ears while we have you watch a movie. The movie will help us receive brainwave reinforcement. The number of your sessions will vary. You could average between 20-100 sessions or more* and most individuals decide to come in twice a week.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you live in New Canaan, you can simply call our office to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. We also offer free Neurofeedback information sessions- click here to see more information.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After performing the QEEG, Dr. Roseann will use your results to recommend a treatment. Based on these results and clinical intake, she will be able to determine what therapy or therapies will be best for you. We are proud to provide our alternative therapies to our New Canaan residents.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

Your progress is monitored in three ways: 

  • Through QEEGs at regular intervals to look at brain function
  • Through collecting data at every neurofeedback session
  • Through regular customized symptom checklist progress monitoring.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is proven to be a safe, non-invasive alternative for conditions that affect both children and adults. Thousands of research studies for over the past 40 years show its adequacy. In fact, in 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics regarded the treatment with a Level 1 effectiveness rating for the treatment of ADHD, tying first place with medication*
