What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is an effective therapy that can act an alternative to medicine. It can be used to study the information (feedback) from your brainwaves (neuro) to help produce change in your body. Usually your brain will self-regulate which helps to calm your nervous system and diminish your symptoms. Without self-regulation, a variety of problems can arise in your central nervous system. These problems can be anxiety, depression or even physical. Biofeedback is different from Neurofeedback because it revolves around autonomic functions.  

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a therapy associated with controlling your bodily functions like breath, heart rate or skin temperature. Sessions will include attaching electrical sensors to your scalp to receive information (feedback) from your body (bio). This information will then be of use to our practitioners who will help you learn about subtle changes such as relaxing muscles or reducing stress. Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback due to the focus on autonomic functions. When you have more power over your body, you’ll be able to live an improved state of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) brain map helps measure the electrical patterns of your cortical activity. This type of brain mapping is normally done through a computer analysis. We’ll then take your results, compare them to a database and figure out which patterns could be a sign of depression, anxiety or other conditions. We’ll use the results of your QEEG to determine the right treatment plan and progress for 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?

To provide our New Preston patients with alternative therapies, we offer Neurofeedback. This therapy involves modifying your brainwave activity with the help of computers. Our practitioners will monitor your brain functioning in order to determine what brain frequencies need to be promoted or reduced. Then we’ll reward your brain to help reinforce a positive behavior compared to a negative. With the introduction of new electrical activity to your brain, we hope to reshape your brainwave activity to a more desirable and regulated performance. We also hope to reduce symptoms and help your brain self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

Neurofeedback treatments start with a QEEG brain map where we will record your QEEG activity. Dr. Roseann will then analyze your results, review them and recommend a treatment plan for you to undergo. After your plan has been created, you can choose to start your Neurofeedback sessions immediately or when you find fit. A normal number of sessions can range from 20 to 100 or more.* A lot of our New Preston clients come to our office around twice a week. Your sessions will involve placing sensors on your scalp and ears while we provide you with brainwave reinforcement.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you are living in New Preston and want to start Neurofeedback or Biofeedback treatment, simply call our Ridgefield office to schedule a QEEG brain map.

We are proud of our non-medicated therapies and we are proud to provide them for our New Preston clients.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics awarded Neurofeedback with a Level 1 effectiveness, proving that its results are just as effective as medication.*
